Judith Hairbottle

"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!" 

Christine Brand

"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."
