FAMILY DOCTOR (GP) CAPE TOWN : DR KASHMIRA PILLAY

General medicine or primary healthcare is your first stop on the healthcare ladder. General practitioners (GP) often see patients for extended periods of their lives and treat families as a unit. A GP can treat common colds, chronic health conditions and check on your mental health. Dr Kashmira Pillay is our trusted GP, based at 79 Kloof street, Gardens, Cape Town, 

Preventative health management such as the implementation of lifestyle changes and screening for diseases is also a big part of a GPs role.

 Regular visits to your GP can also assist you in having a comprehensive understanding of your baseline health so that when you are sick it is easier to identify outliers in your health profile allowing for earlier detection of illness and quicker treatment.

Health education from your GP is also vital as it allows you to make informed decisions and play an active role in your medical management. A patient and their General Practitioner should work together as a team to get better health outcomes and ultimately help patients live a healthy and happy life.
