News at Drs Spies & Partners 2018-2019
Much has happened during 2018 and the beginning of 2019 since Spies and Partners created our website. All of the important events include people coming and going.
We said goodbye, but not farewell to Drs Willie Pieterse and Johan Basson
We said goodbye, but not farewell to Drs Willie Pieterse and Johan Basson, who retired. Dr. Pieterse studied medicine at the UFS from 1973 to 1978. He completed his M.Fam.Med. in 1983 – 1985. Afterwards he worked in Parys and Wolmaranstad as a general practitioner and district doctor. In 1996 – 2000 Dr Pieterse studied Diagnostic Radiology and started working at Drs. Spies and Partners where he has worked until his retirement. Dr. Pieterse and his wife Madeleine have 4 children and 5 grandchildren and counting. They are looking forward to spend more time with the family and travel through our beautiful country.
Dr. Basson also studied medicine in Stellenboch. Afterwards he worked in Swartklip and Empangeni and came to Bloemfontein in 1993 to study Radiology. Afterwards Dr. Basson started working as a Radiologist at Spies and Partners until his retirement. Dr. Basson is an excellent landscape photographer and loves to travel the world in pursuit of the perfect picture.
Amidst all their adventures Dr. Pieterse and Dr. Basson still help out at Spies and Partners as needed and therefore we still have access to all their wisdom and knowledge.
