PaediatricsA paediatrician is a doctor who provides specialist care to babies, children and adolescents. They have training in the diseases and illnesses that affect children and they are also knowledgeable in how babies, children and adolescents grow and develop. The Adelaide Paediatrics paediatricians are all highly qualified and very experienced in working with children and the broad range of issues they can have. They are all trained in Australia and are members of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). Your child might see a paediatrician for further assessment or treatment of:
- behaviour problems
- developmental issues
- learning difficulties
- intellectual or physical disabilities
- syndromes such as Down Syndrome or Fragile X Syndrome
- newborn health checks
- weight and growth concerns
- sleep problems
- feeding difficulties
- bed wetting
- any other medical concerns
Our paediatricians also service several private hospitals providing neonatal care immediately from birth to make sure everything is okay with your baby.
A doctor’s referral is required to see a paediatrician as they are specialists.
