Name of Gynae/Obgyn: Dr Mark Siebritz
Male or female: Male
Province & Suburb: Western Cape, Brackenfell
Hospital: Cape Gate MediClinic
Medical aid rates: Yes
Cost of consult and delivery: R1200 for first appointment, R550 thereafter. Including scans at every appointment, except 12 week and 20 week scans which are done elsewhere. Consultations were covered by Discovery savings. Birth is covered on Discovery with a R3500(?) co-payment (will confirm).
Are your appointments mostly on time: Mostly on time - rescheduled twice due to deliveries (phoned me a few hours in advance), and once had to wait a while, but otherwise on time.
Does your caregiver fully support your choices: Yes although he seems to be slightly more pro-natural birth, he will never force a woman to have a vaginal birth/c-section, the choice is theirs.
Are Saturday appointments available: No
I think he is a very nice Dr, I am comfortable with him and he seems genuinely excited at each of my scans.
