Paediatrician

They almost certainly will need to do blood tests and possibly a chest XRay as well.The best paediatrician to see your son is Dr Andre Van Niekerk at the Clinton Clinic in Alberton. Please tell him that you do not have medical aid.
The only other possibility is for your son to be seen at a Provincial Hospital.
