Dr Burger grew up in a small country town in South Africa, very similar to WA just with many more mountains that are covered in snow in Winter.
He studied medicine at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. After 15 years private practice in South Africa Dr Burger came to Australia in 2001 for a 6-month working holiday, and as a family decided to emigrate to WA.
Dr Burger and his family lived in Morawa for 2 and a half years and then Wongan Hills for 4 and a half years, moving to Australind in 2008. Dr Burger’s wife is a maths teacher at a local school and together they have 4 children and 7 grandchildren.
Dr Burger enjoys the full spectrum of a GP Practice, babies to aged care, preventative medicine, skin checks, minor surgery etc. He thoroughly enjoys his work as a general practitioner.
To brighten his day Dr Burger likes talking to his patients about camping, gardening and cars.
