Dr van Heerden's practices are open Monday to Friday, from 8am until 5pm.

He works according to scheduled appointments for all consultations, treatments and surgical procedures.

We will schedule your appointment as promptly as possible.  If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you the same day.

We try our best to stay on schedule but emergency cases may arise and cause delays.  
We appreciate your understanding and patience.

Due to the fact that Dr van Heerden divides his time between two practices, consultation days and times may vary.

Please call or e-mail our offices with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
