Caring for your child as if they were my own

Having a sick child can be a stressful situation, as a specialist Paediatrician I see this first hand. Therefore, I believe that I have a duty to care for your child as if it were my own, because by doing so I create a calm environment that enables a healthy healing process

My Approach

Dr de Bruin completed his pre-graduate training at the Free State University followed by his Pediatric training at Stellenbosch University. He has been involved in caring for children full time since 2004, initially as medical officer, followed by training at a tertiary hospital and eventually leading into full time private practice.

His current pediatric service is multifaceted and includes care of the newborn and shortly thereafter. This then continues to infants, toddlers and adolescent health. He has a special interest in pediatric pulmonology as well as attention and hyperactivity disorder.

Dr de Bruin is passionate about caring for children and loves to build a relationship with the child and parent. He recognizes the value of holistic care in facilitating not only health but also a fully developed young individual.

My Specialisations

While I treat all Paediatric cases and illnesses, I have a special interest in Pulmonology as well as developmental and learning disabilities. I also enjoy being involved in the joint care of Paediatric Oncology cases.


"We always feel so welcome when stepping into Dr. de Bruin's rooms. He is a very caring and friendly doctor. My kids always have a positve experience when visiting him. He has a very professional bedside manner and would recommend him to any Mom and Mom to be. The reception and nursing staff are always friendly and assisting."

"Dis baie min dat mens deesdae in ‘n praktyk instap en voel asof jy behoort en word gegroet met ‘n glimlag en warmte van die oomblik wat jy instap tot die oomblik wat jy by die deur uitstap. Ek voel en getuig dit altyd dat Dr. de Bruin regtig ‘n fantastiese pediater is en sy persooneel uit hulle pad sal gaan om jou te akkomodeer asook Dr. De Bruin self. My kinders is mal oor Dr. de Bruin, Sonja en Sandra. Hulle ken elke kind en  maak tyd om elke kind en Ouer te leer ken. Dis ons huis weg van ons huis en jy  sal voorwaar die warmte voel as jy daar in stap! Mieke praat al met Dr. en se Dr. onthou mos Dr. mag nie die stokkie gebruik nie en Dr. glimlag en speel saam en se natuurlik Mieke net kyk met die liggie wat hy dan so doen. As ek dink aan watse Fantasties Pediater Dr. de Bruin is kan ek nie help om te glimlag nie!"

"Being first time parents and after having a few bad experiences elsewhere we can confidently say that we have now found the perfect pediatrician. No matter how busy he is, Dr De Bruin has always made time to see our daughter on the same day if we need him. Every question and concern we’ve had about her health or development is always answered with patience and compassion and we always leave his office knowing our child is in good hands."
