Dr Pillay

Coming from humble beginnings, I always aim to provide quality service to my patients and cost effective service. It's also about giving people access to Specialist Sports Physician services at affordable rates.

I hold my thoughts of ethics and morals highly.

I love football and cricket. I'm the ardent fisherman who never catches anything and love my classic Soul and R and B music.

My family is most important to me.
