From central Sandton, take Rivonia Road going north (away from town).  Cross Grayston Drive.  Miss one set of traffic lights (Cell-C) and take the next right into South Road.  Go down the hill and up the other side, where you should turn left at the next lights into Bowling Avenue.  Turn right directly after the next lights into Darwin Road and you will see the Wendywood Shopping Centre in the fourth block on your left just before Wendy Road ends at Western Service Road.

From the M1 Motorway, take the Wendywood/Kramerville off ramp.  Turn West (towards central Sandton).  At the T-junction with Katherine St / Bowling Avenue, turn right into Bowling.  Directly after the third set of traffic lights turn right into Darwin Road (before Espirit Estate, but you can turn right there too) and you will see the centre in the fourth block on your left just before Darwin Road ends at Western Service Road.

Joel's practice is on the first floor.  The entrance to the upstairs offices is at the south end of the centre, on your left as you face it from the car park, the near end if you entered at the Darwin Road entrance as given in these directions (the far end if you came if from Wendy Road, the north entrance).  If you came in off Darwin Road, it's on your left.
