Newborn and Paediatric Consultation

Often families find standard or even long appointments are not enough time to thoroughly address particular concerns for their little ones. Dr Lauren Healy is offering these longer appointments as way to address specific concerns parents may have for themselves or their children, without feeling rushed.

Dr Lauren Healy is the only GP currently offering Comprehensive Newborn and Paediatric Consultations at Next Practice Prahran. After booking your initial 45 minute session, Dr Lauren Healy will advise what length appointment is required for any follow up consultations. Please visit the Fees page of our website for pricing.
