What makes Leading Steps Paediatric Clinic different?

At Leading Steps Paediatric Clinic we count quality care as our highest priority.

That's why we take the time to give you our full attention.

Around the world the average length of a consultation per patient is between 7 and 15 minutes.

Children seen in our clinic are generally allocated one hour as a new patient with a new problem and 30 minutes for a review consultation.

Teamwork:

We have a collegiate approach and are always prepared to organise a second opinion for diagnosis and management. We recognise and respect the expertise of our colleagues and often consult and confer with each other regarding unusual or complex conditions.

Communication

Caring for your child's emotional, medical and psychological well being is central to our child centred focus. We always endeavour to provide appropriate written information to our patients and are willing to receive subsequent queries. Please ask if you would like to receive a copy of your child's letter back to the GP.

We consider this a ”Patient-Doctor” relationship and are always keen to hear the outcome of our management advice.

Please visit our  Leading Steps Paediatric Clinic Facebook page where we  regularly post up to date news and medical information of interest to families.

Teaching

Our clinic takes its responsibilities to improve the health of children very seriously and this includes taking on a teaching role. This involves lectures to local General Practitioners and also having medical students from Bond University and an Advanced Training Registrar in General Paediatrics working out of our clinic. If you prefer not to have a student or registrar present during the consultation, that is absolutely fine. Please just tell the secretaries or Paediatrician.

Results

In all organisations, information can go missing. “No news is no news.” If you haven't heard in a reasonable time (say two weeks, unless told specifically the test may take longer) about a result that you are expecting, please contact our clinic. Once again, quality care is our highest priority.

Multidisciplinary

Leading Steps Paediatric Clinic includes specialist paediatric physiotherapists, psychologists and occupational therapists under the one roof for your convenience. We love working together to create the best outcome for our patients.
