The team has been brilliant under very difficult circumstances. We started working on my practice as the lockdown came into place. I was also pleased with the payment structure, which you can see has been set up by people who know what the financial implications of starting a practice are.

I can recommend IMEDPRAC to anyone starting a practice or looking for a reboot of an existing practice. They helped me just after specialising in O&G. They really think of everything so that you don't have to. I honestly could not have done it without them, and it was money well spent.

I was initially sceptical about their offering. However, once I met the team and consultants, I was absolutely blown away by the professional manner in which the service is offered. The lineup of specialists and consultants really opened my eyes to all the nuances of running a private practice.

- Dr Bongi Makhubo
We had to set up a private practice in two months. If it were not for iMedprac’s help and their expertise, we would have never been able to do that. They were always happy and available to help, and even after we've opened practice, they were still such a big help. I do not know how we would have done everything without them.
