Taking Care of the Little Ones
Growing bodies and developing immune systems face all kinds of health challenges. Though rarely serious, it breaks your heart when your little one is unwell.
The GPs at the clinic are experienced in treating kids of all ages. They either have extra training in paediatrics or take a special interest in common childhood and adolescent health conditions.
Most doctors are also parents and empathise with having a child who’s feeling lousy. We can help your kids with:
- Anxiety and depression
- Behavioural problems
- Chronic childhood diseases (including asthma, eczema and hay fever)
- Coughs and colds
- Developmental milestones
- Infant care and nutrition
- Skins conditions, including acne treatment
- Teenage and pubescent health
