Children’s Health

Paediatricians specialise in children’s health, which is an area concerned with the development and health, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of the diseases of children. But paediatricians are often expensive and sometimes it can be difficult to book specialist appointments on short notice, especially if your child is facing a sudden medical illness or emergency.

Instead of going immediately to a paediatrician, try visiting Dr CG Du Plessis & Partners. As general medical practitioners who are also parents, we understand the stress and worry that arise when it comes to the health of your children and the desire to seek out a paediatrician’s services. We strive to bring your children the best health care, specifically suited to their young needs and requirements.

In today’s world of over-diagnosis and over-treatment, the over-use of prescription medication and antibiotics is rife, contributing to the prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. To combat this, we take a considered and conservative approach to children’s health. All of our children’s examinations are thorough, with an emphasis on checking milestones and progress against ranges of normal growth and development.

The first three years of a child’s life are a difficult time, especially for new parents, and it is a good idea to have regular check-ups with every immunization visit. It is also helpful to get a professional medical doctor’s opinion on the myriad of minor complaints that your young children may struggle with.

We also work closely with our referral paediatricians and encourage our patients to do their annual or bi-annual paeditricians assessments to ensure normal development and progress of our most precious patients. childrens-health
