Specialist Physician/Nephrologist Dr Adriaan Slabbert joined the Lenmed Group in February 2019. He started off as a civil engineer at the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry in 1998. Realising this was not his calling, he enrolled as a first-year medical student at the University of the Free State in 1999. Funding his project by giving structural engineering classes to final year Technikon students, he obtained his MBChB degree in 2004.

He became a fellow of the College of Physicians of South Africa in 2014. On 2 separate occasions he worked in Kimberley Hospital, from 2006 to 2009 and again from 2013 to 2016. Realising the need for a nephrologist in the Northern Cape, he obtained sponsorship to qualify as a nephrologist at Stellenbosch University.

Dr Slabbert is married to Dr Marietjie Slabbert, a paediatrician, working on state side. They have two boys: Bernard, 5 years old and Pierre 3 years old.
