What can I expect during a consultation?

During a check-up with your physician, you can expect a head-to-toe check of your physical health, including diagnostic procedures such as heart rate and blood pressure monitoring, blood tests, ultrasounds and urine testing. These are all done so that your physician can form an accurate image of your health and make an accurate diagnosis so that necessary treatments can be planned.

With a patient-centred approach, Dr Tabane emphasises preventative medicine and takes time to screen his patients for conditions like high cholesterol, both types of diabetes and hypertension. If diagnosed with a chronic condition such as asthma, hypertension, diabetes, HIV, arthritis, ischemic heart disease, thyroid disorders or cardiac rhythm disorders he takes the proactive approach, ensuring symptoms are managed, and complications are avoided.

Nutrition and diet will also be addressed to improve well-being and referred to Dr Tabane’s in-house dietician should there be a concern – especially if conditions such as hypertension, diabetes and heart disease are to be managed.

With his experience as a sports physician, any musculoskeletal concerns and connective tissue disorders will be well managed by Dr Tabane and referred to physiotherapy where necessary. He is also well-equipped to handle minor to moderate trauma in terms of fractures, bone breaks and stitches for small lacerations under local anaesthetic.

Since he believes in taking a holistic approach to medicine, Dr Tabane also prioritises the mental well-being of his patients and refers patients struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD and behavioural disorders to his in-house psychologist as the need arises.
