Contact Us


Due to extensive wait times, our Paediatricians have regretfully had to close their books to all new patients.

A referral letter from your GP (or another specialist) is required in order for us to make an appointment. You can send us your referral electronically via our contact us page or email it along with your contact details to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Alternatively it may be faxed to (02) 4312 6233. One of our team will be in contact with you to arrange an appointment once the referral has been reviewed. They will advise an estimate of the applicable consultation fee at the time.

This is a private billing clinic and payments for consultations are required on the day of the consultation. There is usually a rebate available for medical consultations through Medicare, if a valid GP referral is provided for the consultation.

Online Claiming through Medicare is available for those eligible for quicker payments of Medicare rebates.

What to bring to your first appointment:

Copy of referral (written within the last 12 months)
Medical reports and consultation letters
Allied health reports and letters (Speech pathologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, dietitian, others)
X-ray and other imaging reports
Blood and other investigation results (pathology reports)
School / childcare reports and letters
School counsellor reports

Wait times to see a paediatrician are unfortunately often very long, but there’s a lot you can try to arrange before your first appointment, including various professionals you can see to get support and assessments completed if necessary. The more information you have on hand, the more you’ll get out of that first appointment with a Paediatrician. Below are some suggestions to look into, and your GP will also likely have some additional ideas.
