Dr Laurens Klopper

General Practitioner


MB ChB 1998 Stellenbosch


I was born and raised in South Africa, working initially in Obstetrics and Gynaecology before spending 2 years in the UK in various hospitals. After returning to SA and a 2 year stint in Family Practice and 3 years as an A&E doctor, it was off to Canada where I qualified and practiced under their system as a GP for 8 years. Our family, including two young toddlers, have really enjoyed the transition to the Kiwi lifestyle since we arrived in Katikati in mid-2018.
