Dr Noline van den Berg
I graduated from Onderstepoort in 2006. As a new graduate I was exposed to a large variety of surgical, medicine, reproductive and exotic cases at Rant-en-Dal Animal Hospital. I moved to Melville Animal Hospital and learnt valuable skills in client communication whilst practicing a high standard of veterinary care. At the end of 2008 I joined the Roodepoort SPCA where I gained a great deal of experience in shelter medicine, disease control and prevention as well as in a variety of surgical disciplines. I worked at Bergbron Animal Clinic for 5 years where I honed my veterinary dentistry skills before moving to Fairland Vet as the GP vet in a referral Radiation Oncology practice where I was exposed to a variety of oncology cases. I joined Idexx in June 2018 as Medical Advisor.
