Grant completed his Internship at Coronation Hospital following which he joined the Defence Force where he did his obligatory military service providing Medical care to the family and staff of the Navy in Simonstown. This is where his love for General & Family Practice began. After this he joined Dr Keay Smith as a General Practitioner in the Benmore Gardens Centre in Sandton.


“I am still committed to the practise of good family medicine and have a particular interest in Dermatology having studied this over many years under the guidance of some of the top Dermatologists in the country. I have become somewhat of an expert in removing small skin lesions and blemishes having also gained experience from a number of prominent Plastic Surgeons. A further area of interest is my knowledge and understanding of Alcoholism and its impact on the family.”


Grant acts as an expert witness in Medico Legal cases on an ongoing basis which is testament to his wealth of knowledge and experience and the high level of esteem bestowed on him by his medical colleagues and other professionals.


Grant is an avid golfer and plays regularly at the Johannesburg Country Club in Woodmead. He has two daughters and is married to Janyce. Between them they are fortunate to have five wonderful grandchildren.

http://www.parkdocs.co.za/dev/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/DSC_8236-200x200.png

I was somewhat different from my peers at Medical School. I had already spent over 8 years in tertiary education since leaving school when I embarked on my medical career. I knew when I started that I wanted to go into Family Medicine. After I graduated I started immediately to further my knowledge and skills in the wonderful and fulfilling area of Medicine and achieved the Fellowship in Family Medicine in 2007, having done an intensive course in Emergency Medicine and achieving the Diploma in Primary Emergency Care prior to that in 1993.


I am seriously passionate about Family Health and the longer I remain in practice, the more convinced I am that the more holistically we view Health and Wellness, the more likely we are to achieve it. I believe that we should empower patients to take ownership of their health and guide them in this pursuit rather than merely providing prescriptions and instructions.


Dr Jearey is a Family Medicine Preceptor at the Department of Family Medicine, Department of Health Sciences at Wits Medical School, and is passionate about teaching and encouraging young doctors to enter this field.


She is also a Menopause Practitioner and a member of the North American Menopause Society as well as the South African Menopause Society and regularly attends continuing medical education in order to stay relevant and up to date in the field of Women’s Health. In addition, she is the doctor in charge of the Sandton Travel Clinic and a certified Travel Health Practitioner having completed the requirement for the Certificate in Competency in Travel Medicine at the University of the Witwatersrand department of Public Health in 2009. Her qualifications also include a Distinction in Diabetes Management with CDE.


She enjoys all aspects of Family Medicine but her particular areas of interest include:



  • Women’s’ Health and Menopause especially

  • Cardiovascular Disease in Women

  • Anxiety and Depression

  • Travel Medicine

  • Child Health

  • Dermatology

  • Diabetes and Diseases of Lifestyle


On a personal note, she has been married to Ivan who is a Chartered Accountant, for the past 36 years and Ivan works as an Accountant for the practice. They have three wonderful children.

DOCTORS


Dr Mary-Anne Naude

MBChB (UOFS)

Dr Mary-Anne Naude graduated from the University of the Free State in 1999. After her internship and community service years, she went to the United Kingdom where she worked for a year, doing adult medicine and then neonates.


http://www.parkdocs.co.za/dev/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/20161209_203727-200x200.png

During this time, she discovered Palliative Medicine, which aims to reduce suffering and improve quality of life, through pain control and symptom control. Palliative Medicine employs a holistic approach, which is very important to her. She then came back to Johannesburg, where she first worked as a General Practitioner, before going on to work in an Oncology practice and doing her Diploma in Palliative Medicine.


Through working there, she has gained a great deal of knowledge and experience in Oncology and Palliative Medicine. She has a special interest in the healing power of art therapy, having seen the benefits of this in practice.


She enjoys painting and sketching, when she gets time. Mary-Anne also loves working with children and young families. She is married to Brad and as a mother of two young boys, she understands the pressures and strains that a family go through.



Dr Lesley Wormald

MB ChB (UCT)

Lesley graduated from the University of Cape Town. She completed her internship at Victoria Hospital in Wynberg. The following year she accepted a post at the Red Cross children’s Hospital in the pathology department. This was followed by a further 3 years in pathology at Groote Schuur Hospital.

However, this was cut short when her husband was transferred to Swaziland. There she joined a wonderful general practice, where she fell in love with Family Medicine and discovered her real passion. On her return to Johannesburg she continued to work as a general practitioner, a decision she has never regretted. Lesley’s caring and nurturing attitude makes her particularly successful in this area of medicine. Her special interests include Paediatrics, Adolescent Health and Lung Diseases.


Lesley is married, has two daughters and four grandchildren. Her interests outside of medicine include art, classical music, literature, travel and languages. She is currently studying French and Spanish.

During her Community Service year in Rustenburg, Lorna’s love for Family Medicine and Primary Care developed as she saw the critical need for good primary practitioners to manage a wide variety of conditions. In order to equip herself for her chosen field and to offer as varied a service as possible to her patients, at the end of her Community Service year Lorna completed diplomas in Obstetrics and Anaesthetics, and specialization in Family Medicine at University of Cape Town in 2017.


Lorna is looking forward to contributing meaningfully to Parkmore Family Physicians objectives and achievements and in addition to offering her patients all aspects of Family Medicine, with particular interest in HIV management and child and infant health.

NURSING STAFF


Sr Fiona Macduff

Registered Nurse and Registered Midwife, Diploma in Travel Medicine

Fiona trained at Addington hospital in 1979. She qualified in General Nursing and Midwifery and worked in ICU in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg for the next ten years. She then decided to further her education and qualified as an anaesthetic sister. After such a long period in hospital service, she felt the need for change and accepted a post at our practice in Parkmore.


//www.parkdocs.co.za/dev/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/fiona.png

I initially thought I would be bored without the adrenalin and intense pace one faces in the hospital. How wrong could I be? I never get time to even contemplate the thought! I enjoy dealing with and helping people and being able to utilize my training. No day is ever the same!


My outside interests are my family, husband Rory and my two sons, Ross and Duncan. I do often neglect my family at weekends when I follow my passion, working with animals. I love helping at CLAW. Many patients will have heard me trying to find homes for abandoned kittens as well as trying to get donations of blankets and food for CLAW. So that is me, Fiona Macduff!”


She has done the Travel Medicine Course as well as the CDE Course in Diabetes.


Fiona is an integral part of our practice and has an intricate knowledge of our patients and their families.  She often remembers file numbers and lab results.  She is the most exceptional Nursing sister and all the doctors agree that if there was ever a need for one person to be around them in a medical emergency, it would be Fiona.
