A paediatrician is a specialist doctor who looks after a range of medical conditions in children. They are experts in the health and development of babies and children. They provide care when children do not seem to be developing normally as well as diagnoses and treatment illness in otherwise healthy children.
Our paediatricians have particular expertise in problems with growth, feeding, physical and intellectual development, and behaviour. They can also see your child regarding a wide range of other conditions when your GP would like some further specialist advice. The conditions include: skin conditions, chest complaints (asthma, heart murmurs), infections,and chronic or recurrent health problems. If you want your child looked after in a specialist paediatric setting ask your GP to refer to Kidzhealth.
