Dr André Burger



The Practice

In 2013, Dr. P. Donnoli decided to retire from Ophthalmology in Pietermaritzburg, Kwazulu Natal, after dedicating 25 years of his life to eye care. Over the years he had built a substantial general ophthalmology practice, and in addition to caring for his own patients, he also took over the management of several patients he had inherited from predecessors such as Dr. Lecuona and Dr. Spooner.

Dr. Donnoli’s skill, caring nature and down to earth approach made him a popular choice with many patients. Thus his decision to retire would have an impact on many people.

He realized that he needed someone to continue with the care for his patients, and he to approached Dr. Burger with this responsibility.

Dr. Burger shared Dr. Donnoli’s patient care philosophy, and in April 2013 he took over the practice.

Since then Dr. Burger has continued to care for general ophthalmology patients, but expanded the eye care service to include the areas in which he received sub-speciality training in the United Kingdom, namely Vitreo-retinal surgery and oculoplastic surgery.

Dr. Burger has two practices, one located in the city of Pietermaritzburg and one in the nearby town of Howick, which accommodates patients from the KZN midlands.

Opening times for the practice are as follows: Monday to Friday, 08:00 - 17:00. The first elective patient is seen at 08:00 and the last patient is seen at 16:00. Emergency eye conditions are seen to on the same day, as soon as possible.

Eye surgery is performed at Pietermaritzburg Eye Hospital, Mediclinic-Howick and Netcare St.Anne's Hospitals.

The practice and theater facilities are well equipped with state of the art technology, including microscopes, lasers, scans and other medical equipment, all of which are integral in providing a world class eye service.
