Home People MEN WITH MOMENTUM: Dr Henk Jacobs


“Success should be the ability to have time to spend with your family and friends, financial stability, and peace in your heart after a long day’s effort and thoughts.”

This is according to Dr Henk Jacobs who is a medical doctor, GP and owner of Doctor on Call after-hours units, as well as Dr HM Jacobs Inc. & Associates.  He also works at EmoyaMed and Stirling Hospital, where he is a physical rehabilitation doctor with Greymil Physical Rehabilitation.

When the introverted doctor is not caring for his patients, he loves to enjoy a meal at Avanti Woodland Hills, or to spend time with his family. Some of his fondest memories of last year was the birth of his baby girl and opening two new practices, one at Pelonomi Netcare and another at EmoyaMed.

He draws his inspiration from his wife and family, together with hours and hours of hard work and seeing the progression and improvement in patients with gratitude also gives him hope. What motivates him to get out of the bed in the morning are the beautiful Bloemfontein sunrises and the voices of his wife and one-year-old daughter.

Dr Henk does not believe in looking at other practices as competition but rather as a helping hand which assists him with those in desperate need of medical attention.

He advises that one should constantly analyse situations and be consistent when taking on a task or challenge. “I believe that people should work hard, believe in themselves, chase the dreams and purpose, and always slim down on the overheads.”

Even though working hard is very important to this Bloemfontein doctor, he believes in taking time out for himself: “I think time for yourself can be alone or with family and friends, to recharge with a braai, mountain biking, a long walk, or just well-earned break, or a holiday by the sea,” he concludes.
