Patient Care



Children have special needs through their various stages of development.

In the early years, it is important to monitor the milestones of development. As our children grow to school age, we want to ensure immune issues like asthma, eczema and allergies are identified and well-managed. As they enter school we want to support healthy attention and focus, as well as physical activity. As they enter their teens a whole new set of concerns appears. Boys and girls have their special needs during puberty including hormone health, but also skin issues like acne, and digestive complaints may appear. Young ladies may need special assessment and support with their menstrual cycles. 

A well-Child visit is an opportunity to have a clinic visit with an open agenda.  Dr Joe will take the time to review body systems such as digestion, skin, bowels, mood, energy and more in a safe and comfortable space.  It is a time to discuss development stages and to introduce topics such as nutrition, physical activity and lifestyle into your child’s healthcare conversation.

Dr Joe is sensitive to the needs of children of all ages and is able to work with them to help them understand how food and lifestyle can be an important factor in their health. Our online booking system is available here for you to book an initial appointment.
