Dr Sindisiwe van Zyl studied at the University of Pretoria, first doing a BSc and then Medicine. She worked at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital near Soweto as an intern in 2006, and this experience shaped her life profoundly. With a passion for Primary Health Care, the doctor's mission is to save people's lives, specialising in the area of HIV as an HIV Clinician. She now works in the Johannesburg CBD, where she focuses her attention on HIV-related care and general health.
Dr Sindi has always had a heart for Primary Health Care and she believes that this is the foundation of a strong health system. Dr Sindi then branched into the field of HIV and has really made her mark there as a doctor. Her passion is sharing HIV-related knowledge. Stigma is still a problem with regards to HIV and doctor Sindi has found a niche answering questions from people via social media. Anonymity is key. Please find her blog at http://qooh.me/DoctorSindi
Dr Sindisiwe van Zyl works from Zuzimpilo Pulse Clinic on Mondays to Thursdays from 08:00 to 17:00, and on Saturdays from 09h00 - 13h00 in the Johannesburg CBD.
Dr Sindi has been featured in True Love, Fair Lady, Oprah, Destiny and Afropolitan magazines. She is also a regular guest on radio and TV shows. Dr Sindi is the HIV columnist for Bona magazine and www.health24.com
In 2012, she was recognised as one of the Top 200 Young South Africans by the Mail and Guardian.
Dr Sindi van Zyl is just a beautiful spirited person through and through I will always go back and spread the word about her excellent service to her patients.
She's a very good doctor and is very patient with people, she gives her full attention to people and is very kindhearted, I just wish that in future she'll have a practice closer to Midrand so that I can always go there.
