Ratings for Dr. Juan Pretorius
He has helped our family so much. He kept pushing for diagnosis of my child when everyone else said it was in our heads. He listens and trusts mother's intuition. What he doesn't know, he refers to the people who can help, and takes time to find out the best specialists to refer you to.
Dr. Pretorious has been mine and my families doctor for years and he is a great doctor he cares about his patients and will do everything he can for his patients and is a kind and compassionate doctor he isn't one of those know it all doctors that brush you off if they don't have the answer, he will keep trying to get to the root of what's going on.
Dr. Pretorius is the doctor for the majority of my family. I started with him when I became pregnant, and he seemed fine, friendly and informative. At a following appointment when discussing testing if the fetus had any abnormalities, he recommended against it for the understandable reason of the high rate of false positives, but also brought his religious beliefs into it, which a doctor should not be doing. At my son's 1 month appointment after he was born he never checked him over, simply asked if there was anything I was worried about. I told him the only thing was I thought he might have ties in his mouth. He refused to look saying my son wouldn't be able to take a bottle at all if he had any sort of tie, never asked about any of the signs of ties, which I only know now through research. He chuckled at my cover when I asked again if it was possible he could still have a tie. Finally I had an appointment to at the same time for my auto-immune disease, hormones make it go nuts, and after giving birth, I definitely can't run, and walking and even lifting my arms is intensely painful. He assured me he knew how rough the disorDer can be as he has 2 other patients with it, and would set me up with a specialist, discussed how normal pain med never work, and seemed to know what he was talking about. Then he stood up to do the "see you next time" without trying to come up with a way to manage the pain or get any quality of life back so I can take care of my damned son.
