Specialist Paediatrician MBChB, MRCP(UK), FCP(SA).
My medical journey started almost 30 years ago as a General Practitioner in a Small Town, Waterfall, not far from the Hospital I now work in; Hillcrest Private Hospital. During this time as a GP dealing with young families and their precious new off-spring, a “Paediatric call” was heard loudly. Along the way I travelled with my family to the U.K, to specialise in Paediatrics, gaining the British Paediatric Specialist qualification, MRCP(UK) Paediatrics within two years. I was fortunate enough to work in centres of excellence like Great Ormond Street children’s Hospital and The Hammersmith Mother and Child Hospital, gaining top-level experience and learning from leading experts in children’s care and development. On returning to South Africa, my journey continued in the Department of Paediatrics, at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. In 1998 I gained my South African Paediatric Specialist Qualification, FCP(SA) Paediatrics. After spending time as a consultant at the Johannesburg General Hospital, the yearning to return to Durban grew stronger, and in 2000 I returned to Durban to enter private practice.
I enjoy all aspects of Paediatrics and child health care. I get a real buzz interacting with parents and their children, solving problems no matter how small they appear. I manage babies’ care as small as 500g and 25 weeks at birth and on the other end “children” over 90 kg and 25 years old.
