“Parenting is a wonderful experience – but also holds unexpected worries and questions. Being a mother of three boys, and having worked in children’s hospitals for almost a decade, I have an in-depth understanding of the challenges involved in protecting and supporting your child’s health.
As a children’s doctor with years of experience, I can help your child, whether it’s your baby’s sleep, your toddler’s limited speech, or challenges when your child is diagnosed with a chronic disease.
I am delighted to join the Osler Health team, whose patient-led ethos and ethical approach parallels my own. My message to any concerned parent is, ‘Please don’t worry needlessly, come in and we can find some solutions’.”
