About

I am a Neonatal Paediatrician who specialises in the care of newborns and babies up to 3 months of age. I have particular experience in caring for babies who are born with or develop health concerns in the early days of life in particular premature babies in Special Care Nurseries, and babies requiring the administration of respiratory support, including High Flow Oxygen therapy, CPAP and ventilation. I also follow up on newborns who suffer complications following the birth or those who have abnormalities detected either antenatally or postnatally. I have looked after children in many countries as I have trained and practiced both in Australia and abroad for over 20 years.The practice is a happy, welcoming place where your child can get the care and attention he or she needs.
