Healthcare Services

Paediatric Patients

At Bergvliet Family Practice, we are able to see children from birth and treat a wide range of medical conditions - including colic, rashes and general check ups. As parents themselves, our doctors understand the feelings that come with having a sick child at home, and will do their best to ensure your child receives the highest standard of care.

Geriatric Patients

Treating geriatric patients can be slightly more complicated than their younger counterparts. Bergvliet Family Practice can treat all members of the family, regardless of age. We’re uniquely suited to assist older patients with multiple medical conditions, and we will do our best to ensure they are healthy and comfortable in their golden years. Our practice has wheelchair access for immobile or frail patients.

Women’s Health

At Bergvliet Family Practice, our experienced team offer high quality, caring and confidential healthcare to meet all of your needs. As female practitioners, we are especially suited to take care of women’s medical needs. Some of the aspects of women’s health we assist with include: contraception, pap smears, STDs, screenings and lots more, and we are able to provide information regarding prevention, diagnostic testing and treatment options.

Minor Surgical Procedures

You don’t need to rush to the Emergency Room for minor surgical procedures - we are able to assist right here in our practice! Procedures such as removing skin tags, excision and biopsy of skin lesions, plantar warts, ingrown toenails, and the suturing of lacerations can be done at the practice. If you aren’t sure of the severity of your condition, just give us a call and we’ll advise you as best we can.

Chronic Illness Follow Up

Chronic Disease Management involves prevention, early identification and best practice management strategies. We at Bergvliet Family Practice are used to being the first point of contact in the health system and aim to play a key role in the primary intervention, prevention, diagnosis and management of chronic disease in the community. To this end, we set regular follow -up visits with our chronically ill patients to ensure they receive the highest standard of care and experience the best quality of life possible.

Frail and immobile patients

At Bergvliet Family Practice, we strive to ensure each of our patients receives the highest level of care. We are able to offer home visits to patients who are based in retirement homes close by, or are unable to visit our practice for their consultations. We understand that travelling may be difficult for some and this extra stress may prevent you from getting the great medical care you deserve, so we will come to you and make sure you get it. Please note that this is not an emergency service but can be pre-arranged with reception.


We have a special interest in Cryotherapy - which uses liquid nitrogen to treat various skin lesions including warts, sunspots and skin tags. Cryotherapy freezes and destroys the abnormal cells, which allows normal skin cells to grow back in their place.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health

At Bergvliet Family Practice, we cater for the emotional and psychological needs of children and teens. Dr. Ashleigh Taylor, our mental health care practitioner can step in to assist you. Mental health in young patients is a broad field and includes depression, bereavement (loss), anxiety, behavioural disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post- traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), personality disorders, addictions, sleep problems, enuresis and encopresis as well as chronic medical illnesses causing distress. Often there needs to be a team set up to assist your child in this journey. Dr. Ashleigh Taylor believes in involvling the right team members to suit your family’s needs. The journey is usually longer than a single appointment, and at times, the attention of a specialist is required (psychiatrist, neurologist or physician).

Adult Mental Health

The world today challenges us with highs and lows. At Bergvliet Family Practice, we endeavour to help you navigate these challenges as well as to empower you to take charge of your mental health. Dr. Ashleigh Taylor is ready to be a part of your journey and, if needed, can assist in referring you to specialist services, for example psychiatrists or neurologists. Some of the disorders that make up the field of mental health include depression, bereavement (loss), anxiety, sleep problems, personality disorders, body image problems, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post- traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), substance misuse and addiction, gambling addiction, addiction of prescription medication, major neurocognitive disorders (dementia), medical conditions causing psychiatric illness, bipolar 1 and bipolar 2 disorders as well as schizophrenia (and other psychotic disorders).
