Review on Google – “We recently had our second daughter at Mater mothers private. Our daughter was born via csection and Dr John Gunn was our allocated paediatrician. Our daughter was placed on my chest immediately and Dr Gunn checked over out little one whilst she was on my chest (rather than taking her away). I sincerely appreciate his willingness to support our request for skin to skin. Dr Gunn was friendly and no fuss. Would happily recommend him.” – Abbie Pickering

Review on Facebook – “Excellent in his ability to communicate with kids, especially ours who can take a while to warm to new people. Easy going but also attentive. He’s great working with others when it comes to our kids- he genuinely takes note of our observations and the observations of our kid’s teachers. Cannot recall a single negative experience in our interactions with him or with his office team- all of them do an amazing job. Would recommend Dr Coman anytime, without reservation.” – Hayley Elise

Review on Google – “Dr McGill looked after our new baby boy in SCN at the NWPH. He was very professional in explaining to us what was happening with our son and what that meant for the future. Our son is fitn and healthy thanks to him doing precautionary tests and being contactable by the nurses even on his day off. He has a dry and sarcastic sense of humour which made me laugh quite a fair bit in a somewhat of a stressful situation. I appreciated that greatly! Would recommend and will request him for our new bubby! Thank you!” – Keyly Lindores

FAQ’s

Paediatricians typically treat a wide range of medical conditions, including birth defects, genetic disorders, infections and illnesses, mental health issues, chronic medical conditions and injuries. They may provide preventive care such as physicals and immunizations, as well as diagnose and treat minor injuries and illnesses.

Parents can help their child feel more comfortable during a visit to the paediatrician by preparing them in advance, encouraging conversations, reassuring them of confidentiality and safety, scheduling appointments between activities and breaks, trying distraction techniques such as storytelling or playing games when possible, keeping waiting times short and explanations simple, and engaging in open communication with their paediatrician.

Paediatricians must have a minimum of five years of core medical training and a minimum of three years of specialist paediatric training in order to be able to practice. They will also need to meet the requirements of their respective Royal College and Medical Council before they can register and start practising as a paediatrician.

Paediatricians commonly face challenges that include long hours, managing difficult cases and dealing with the emotional stress of caring for young patients. They must also often deal with regulatory issues and professional changes such as new technology or treatments that require additional training. Finally, paediatricians must balance their own personal and family needs along with their commitment to providing quality medical care to their young patients.

The average salary for a paediatrician in the United States is approximately $185,000 per year. Salaries can range from around $135,000 at the lowest end of the scale to upwards of $250,000 depending on experience and location.
