Dr Wilhelmina Kurstjens


Even though my official name is Wilhelmina, I have always been known by my nickname, Willika (it’s a Dutch thing and I am too old to change it now). Some people call me Will.

Originally, I came from Holland.

I have a Bachelor of Veterinary Science which I practiced for 10 years prior to commencing a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery. I now also hold a Diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Child Health, and Emergency Medicine.  I have further training and a special interest in Skin Cancer.

 After 7 years of doing locum work in many different practices, I have finally found a practice I like so much that I have started working here.
