Private GP You Can Trust

Integrative Healthcare

A patient-centred approach that gets to the root cause of your disease. Here, instead of just treating symptoms, we consider the complete physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental aspects of your life — all taken into consideration to get you to your healthiest self.

General/Family Medicine

Caring for the health of the entire family, from youngest to oldest. Teething, nasty colds and flu, that stubborn adolescent acne, hormonal problems in men and women, the aches and pains of aging — no problem too big or too small for your family doctor.

Contraception Consultations

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to contraception and your hormones. Let’s find the option that’s best for you.

Yearly Medicals

Did you know that most medical aids pay for certain yearly tests out of your risk benefit? Why not get your yearly medical done at your doctor? Depending on your age and risk factors, we can perform all your tests for you. As a Discovery provider, I also provide your yearly Vitality tests.

Chronic Care

Certain chronic conditions require specific tests that are paid out of your chronic benefit. We perform most tests, including blood tests we send to the pathology lab, saving you time, while preventing or slowing disease.

Small Procedures

Stitches, mole removal, papsmeers, and ingrown toenail removal. Enquire about the many services we provide, including insurance medicals.

COVID FAQ

Quarantine?

The newest guidelines recommend that you quarantine if you were in close contact with some bod ywho tested positive for COVID-19 for 10 days since contact (some workplaces still recommend 14 days). This means NO SHOPPING, NO GOING TO THE OFFICE, NO VISITING FRIENDS OR RECEIVING VISITORS! If you need a doctor’s note to state that you need to quarantine you are welcome to email me at drjraubenheimer@gmail.com.

If you do develop symptoms during quarantine such as fever, chills, headache, sore throat, coughing,shortness of breath, body aches, cold symptoms or a loss of sense of smell, you are welcome tomake a video or telephonic appointment where we can discuss the symptoms, treatment and testing.

To make an appointment please phone our receptionists at 012 072 0032.

Please note that testing is only recommended after a few days- the risk of a false negative result is less after 3 or 4 days. If your symptoms are so severe that you need hospital admission, testing will be done there. For admission please go to your nearest emergency room and if you phone the ambulance make sure they know you might have COVID-19.

If no symptoms developed in the 10 days you can go back to work, taking care to avoid contact with people who may have COVID-19.

The NICD website has a lot of information on how to quarantine and isolate at home.

When Do I Need To Test?

At the moment our pathology labs are very busy, and testing needs to be prioritised. We have been asked by the laboratories to help with this. Hospital admissions, healthcare workers and people with severe symptoms and co-morbidities are prioritised. People with milder symptoms are next in line and the time until the results come out varies depending on the number of tests at that time.

If you know you were in contact with a positive COVID-19 case and develop symptoms while in quarantine, we will discuss the symptoms and what to do telephonically or via video consult and I will send a testing referral – NB! EVEN IF THE TEST COMES BACK AS NEGATIVE / NOT DETECTED YOU WILL HAVE TO REMAIN IN ISOLATION FOR 14 DAYS AFTER YOUR SYMPTOMS STARTED BECAUSE A TEST MAY GIVE A FALSE NEGATIVE RESULT.

If you develop symptoms suggestive of COVID-19 but you are unsure if you were in contact with a positive COVID-19 case, you are still welcome to make an appointment for a telephonic or video consult- we will discuss your symptoms, treatment and danger signs and I usually suggest that we book you off from work to isolate and if the symptoms are not improving by D3/D4 to go for testing and complete isolation (depending on the symptoms and workplace policy).

What Is Close Contact?

  • Closer than 1 - 2 meters.
  • Longer thank 15 minutes.
  • Indoors/poor ventilation means more risk than outdoors/more ventilated.
Especially if no mask is worn.

What is quarantine/isolation and why the 10/14 days?

Quarantine is when you were exposed to the virus and isolate yourself because you do not know if you contracted the virus (and can still spread it before you even start to show symptoms or even when you have no symptoms). The newest studies show that if you were in direct contact with a positive case and contract the virus you will start to show symptoms by day 10.

Isolation is when you test positive for COVID-19 and isolate yourself to not spread the virus (even if you do not have any symptoms and tested positive, you can still spread the virus!!). Isolation is 14 days after symptoms started and you were able to manage at home, or 14 days after you came off oxygen in hospital. This is because repeat testing before going back to work is not advisable as viral DNA can still be detected even if the virus is inactive or dead and studies have shown that after an isolation period of 14 days you won’t spread the virus

Can I Get COVID Twice?

Yes, you can. Most people do develop antibodies after they were infected but there is no guarantee how long this immunity may last.Thank you very much for doing what you can to flatten the curve! That means using masks, physical distancing, washing and sanitizing our hands - and a quarantine of 10 days if we have been in high risk contact.

Dr Janine Raubenheimer

General Practitioner (GP)

Dr Janine Raubenheimer

MBChB (Pret) DCH (SA) DipHIVMan (SA)

Janine Raubenheimer loves two things: motherhood and medicine. She continues to balance both with remarkable dexterity.

 “Starting my own practice from scratch while being pregnant with my  second child — that was the most difficult and challenging time of my life, but I pushed through and now have a beautiful daughter and a growing practice.”

Janine graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2009, and went on to obtain diplomas in HIV management and Child Health at the Colleges of Medicine of South Africa. She completed her internship and community service at Kimberley Hospital from 2010 to 2012, and started working in private practice in 2014.

Now as one of Pretoria’s preeminent professionals, she daily combines her passions for helping, teaching and learning. “I believe in getting people to understand their illness, how they’ll get better, and empowering them to become their healthiest selves.”.

Janine candidly discusses the challenges of healthcare regulations and protocols that limit doctor-patient face time. On the upside, many people have wider access to better care, but Janine stresses the importance of a thorough, holistic approach — preventing illness and treating the whole person, rather than simply writing a quick script to treat a symptom. She emphasizes integrative options and thinking bigger.

Currently, Janine continues to build on her education through the Institute of Integrative Medicine of South Africa, and through Student Health of the University of Pretoria.

Janine loves witnessing the difference good health can make in people’s lives, learning new things every day, and using this to improve people’s quality of life. “One good thing: people are starting to take more responsibility of their own health — doing some research and reading up and taking part in decision making.”.

In her downtime, Janine enjoys reading, writing, playing with her kids and her two Scottish terriers, taking walks in the park, and pilates exercise. She also listens to a wide range of podcasts — everything from Joe Rogan to the Happiness Lab with Dr Laurie Santos, to Enneagram Cast and Happy Hormones.

I believe in empowering people to take care of their own health, and in treating every patient as a holistic individual. One of the principles of the WHO, is that health is not merely the absence of disease, but a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing. As a doctor, mother, wife, and human, this is one of the principles I try to incorporate within my own life and work.

My first few years as a doctor were spent in both Kimberley and Pretoria, where I found a love for children’s health and women’s health, and for seeing the possibilities of what we can achieve by treating people with chronic diseases holistically. My further work in Child Health and HIV management only reinforced my belief in an integrative approach.

I found my calling as a general practitioner or, as I like to call it, a family doctor. Victor Frankl proposed that man’s life is a quest for meaning, and a family doctor is in the privileged position, especially with continuous care, to help find and create meaning for ourselves and our patients.

After learning a lot by working in different private practices, I opened my own practice in a leap of faith, to live out my values and principles while providing a level of excellence, within the world of patient-centred care.

I am grateful to be surrounded by superb healthcare professionals in a location where we can offer a one-stop service with a psychiatrist, dentist, physiotherapist, chiropractor, dietician, audiologist, orthotist and a neurophysiologist, all in the same place!
