Doctors Cohen Freinkel and Associates are experienced GPs in Parkhurst
Dr. Paul Freinkel
BSc (Wits) MBBCh (Wits) PhD
Together with Sharoni, I started the practice in 2005. I did my MBBCh at Wits and completed my Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, California. Included in my practice of general medicine, I have a special interest in Transpersonal Psychology and Mindfulness as it applies to health and well-being. I have also developed an expertise in treating HHT in the primary care setting. In my spare time I enjoy my family, photography and singing.
Dr. Sharon Cohen
BSc (Wits) MBBCh (Wits)
I graduated with an honours degree in psychology at Wits University in 1992 and then went on to study medicine at Wits, from which I graduated in 1999.
Since 2002 I have been in private general practice in Johannesburg and at the Village Medical Centre since 2005. I enjoy the fact that general practice often melds the disciplines of psychology and medicine. My interests include women’s wellness and chronic health problems such as hypertension and asthma, but at the same time I enjoy the variety of clinical problems that one encounters in the general practice context.
When not with patients, I enjoy choral singing, tinkling on the piano keys and art-making.
Dr. Tarrin Weigelt
I am a general practitioner at the Village Medical center, experienced in general medicine, paediatrics and aesthetic medicine.
I enjoy working with families and individuals of all ages, but especially children and babies. GP practice affords me the opportunity to have a long term care-based relationship with my patients, which I find rewarding and interesting.
I am a mother of 2 young children.
Dr. Charissa Stannard
I am a young, motivated doctor with a passion for holistic medicine and child health. I believe “health” is a broad concept based on intricate connections between physical and mental well being, genetic factors, and our environments. I look forward to establishing meaningful relationships with my patients and being able to adequately address all aspects of their health.
In my free time – I dedicate as much time as I can to my family, spending time in nature and listening to good music.
We offer the full-range of services expected from general practitioners, and then a few that you might not expect. You don’t always need to rush off to a specialist, when we may be able to treat. Book an appointment and if essential, we will refer you.
Chronic Disease Management
Family friendly GPs
We LOVE having children visit and are qualified to treat most ailments, injuries and conditions. You often don’t need to go straight to a paediatrician. Come in to the rooms, or book a virtual consultation, and if we need to refer you to a paed, we will.
