Marile Pieterse

Practice Manager

“ My fingerprints are seen in many of the day to day interactions in the practice from offering you a cup of tea while you wait in reception to advocating hard on your behalf to get authorization for a surgery or chronic oncology benefits. I will do my best to accommodate you in terms of preferred appointment times and will do all the legwork to organize any necessary referrals to other specialists. I am a master in squeezing you in when you have a quick question for our team of doctors and am skilled in wound-care and dressings and even in reapplying your makeup following a consultation! My background in beauty therapy and subsequent extensive training in cosmeceuticals and aesthetic treatments during my 8 years at Atlantic Dermatology and Laser means that I can answer any of your treatment questions and offer invaluable advice in terms of your skincare regimen.”

After completing my national diploma at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, I achieved my CIDESCO international qualification in 2004. I went on to work as a health and skincare therapist at a multitude of skincare centres and my passion for helping clients achieve their optimal skin health deepened. I then broadened my skillset by concentrating on my administrative skills and was a clinical and surgical assistant to various healthcare practitioners before joining Atlantic Dermatology and Laser in 2011. Here my managerial background and in-depth knowledge of skin culminated in a position where I was able to combine a fiercely service-oriented approach with my genuine care for our patients. I have personally received training in every procedure carried out within the practice which means that I am able to support you through every step of your treatment process. I strive to keep a tight rein on the day-to-day running of the practice and will ensure that your experience within our walls is a superior one. My personal and professional manner is one that you will come to know and trust.

“I have developed truly special relationships with all of our patients and that is the highlight of my work. I look forward to being that smiling face you are met with when you enter our practice and to being available for you at any time of the day.”
