During a consultation the paediatrician will ask numerous questions related to the complaint, but also to the general health and development of your child. There-after he or she will be examined in a child friendly environment, where not only the problem area will be examined but the whole child to reveal other related and non-related signs. After the examination the paediatrician will discuss what she found, and appropriate treatment will be prescribed as well as advice given.
If you were referred by your GP ,the paediatrician will give your GP the relevant feedback.
But you do not need a GP referral to make an appointment, unless it is required by your medical aid. No problem is either too big or too small to warrant our attention.
Whether your child is in perfect health or very sick, we are ready to make your experience and that of your child not only fun, but also filled with information, advice and peace of mind.
