Has anyone in Cape Town, South Africa seen Dr Whitaker for psoriasis treatment?

Dr. Whitaker is a dermatologist in Cape Town, you wait a few months before you are able to get an appointment. she has prescribed some light therapy for my psoriasis on my hands and feet as tar cream was not working fast enough.
