“I arrived in Cape Town a few days before the running of the 21km Two Oceans in 2016. While out training run I started to feel excruciating pain in my neck,shoulder and arm. My wife immediately called our GP Dr Neville Kaplan who in turn contacted Dr Roytowski for me.

On receiving a call from Dr Roytowski he advised me to be admitted to the Netcare Christiaan Barnard  Hospitals Casualty Department .Once admitted he would immediately see me.

Dr Roytowski showed me great care and compassion. He stayed in contact with Dr Kaplan. Both Doctors  arranged me to see a neurosurgeon on my return to Johannesburg. On the Sunday before returning to JHB, Dr Roytowski brought my MRI to my home Sea Point which I thought was a fantastic and unselfish gesture as my wife Loren and I were under so much strain and pressure.

Happily the operation in JHB was a success. Without David  care I do not know how I would have coped with the pain while in Cape Town and my return home.

Hopefully on the 15th April 2017 I will be running the Two Oceans 21km race.

Thanking you for all your help”
