Dr Kris Goodwin


Dr G grew up in Kloof, a small town just outside Durban. He has always had a passion to help people from a young age and loved doing outreaches with his church group in his hometown. It was from this desire to help people that he discovered his calling to be a doctor. He excelled in high school and matriculated with full distinctions. Having earned a scholarship, he moved to Pretoria in 2006, where he studied medicine through the University of Pretoria.

After graduating, Dr G moved back to KZN, where he did his internship and community service training at Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital, an extremely busy hospital where he gained vast experience in all fields of medicine. He spent rotations in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Primary Healthcare in rural clinics, as well as Anaesthetics as a community service officer, but particularly fell in love with the latter.

That’s when he moved to Pietermaritzburg complex, and attained a Diploma in Anaesthetics, through Edendale and Greys Hospital. He spent 2 years in PMB, before moving back to Gauteng at the end of 2018, and joining private practice.

Through hard work, passion and his caring nature, Dr G has built a successful and thriving practice in Johannesburg. He believes in a balanced, integrated and evidence-based approach to self care, where educating patients on physical health, mental health and spiritual health is key to living a full, happy and healthy life. He has developed a keen interest in IV Therapy medicine, and is currently furthering his studies with a Diploma in IV Therapy to make sure his patient’s get the very best and up to date vitamin therapies. He truly values his patients, and sets the highest standards, to ensure his patients get quality treatment and care.

IV drips are my specialty as I have always been fascinated by the human vein system.
