Phillo Beukes founded the Hunters Medical Centre practice in 2001 upon his return to South Africa, after working in the United Kingdom for four years. Built on a philosophy of "correct diagnosis first time, every time", the emphasis of his practice was placed on serving the local community.
The valuable experience gained by working in England and the knowledge gained from completing numerous post graduate courses and higher education studies not available in South Africa, shaped the vision of the practice: striving towards excellence in treatment and rehabilitation.
Ryan Teeling joined the practice in 2012 from Somerset-West.
The practice is closely associated with the Knysna Life Healthcare Hospital situated right next door in Hunters Home.
