Patient Stories

I only just recovered from surgery after a tennis-elbow repair I had at Mediclinic CapeGate. Every aspect of my journey was just astonishing. The level of care I received was beyond my biggest expectations. I commend the nurses of WARD D as well as my orthopaedic surgeon Dr CRAIG SOLOMON and all the people who have looked after me so well...

On the 19th April 2017, at the age of 59, I accidentally fell from a sliding ladder of 3½ m high onto a concrete floor. Needless to say straight into the emergency room 7 o'clock that evening, believe me, this was no joke. The attending DR. send me straight in to M.R.I and X-Rays. He realized it was two very serious fractures a calcaneus and colles. He immediately phoned the "orthopaedic doctor on duty". A minute later in walked a handsome soft-spoken guy...

On the 19th April 2017, at the age of 59, I accidentally fell from a sliding ladder of 3½ m high onto a concrete floor. Needless to say straight into the emergency room 7 o'clock that evening, believe me, this was no joke. The attending DR. send me straight in to M.R.I and X-Rays. He realized it was two very serious fractures a calcaneus and colles. He immediately phoned the "orthopaedic doctor on duty". A minute later in walked a handsome soft-spoken guy by the name of Dr Craig Solomon. He explained my injuries and that he will have to perform an emergency operation on my wrist. My ankle was to swollen to be operated on. At 22:30 they pushed me in to the theatre, and when I got inside DR. Solomon was there to calm me before the operation. I woke up in high care and DR. Solomon was there AGAIN to ensure me that the operation was a success. The 2nd operation was 4days later and for 9days Dr. Solomon was with me every step of the way. By know I knew I was very lucky to have such a special DR. with a very bright future ahead of him. To DR. Solomon I just want to say thank you and I will never forget you and may God bless you always.

The staff from reception to theatre who went above and beyond to make one feel comfortable and your experience a forgettable one but what they did instead is imprinted a level of service excellence I will hardly forget! Just a month before that my fiance and his mom had been in a motor vehicle accident as well and the staff there were so awesome. I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to everyone for contributing to an excellent process of repair to recovery. Keep up the good work!
