Good Day. During 2016/2017 my wife stayed with me before we got married. We both had doctors visits but I did not have a medical aid yet. Can the doctor's fees be deducted from my tax? She also got pregnant with my child and we had monthly check ups.

If you regarded your wife as your dependant when these doctors bills was incurred then you are definitely allowed to capture it on your return under the out out of pocket medical expenses section.
