Dr Nicole White is passionate about providing focused healthcare for children and is excited to announce the opening of gp 4 kids in Brisbane’s inner north. Through many years of medical experience and education with a focus on paediatrics, Dr Nicole has obtained the skills and knowledge to offer you a focused general practice service for your children.
How can gp 4 Kids help your family?
Are you worried about an aspect of your child’s health? Perhaps you are concerned about their growth or physical development. Maybe the school or kindergarten has raised concerns about your child’s behaviour or learning. Do you have a newborn baby and you are struggling with breastfeeding or an unsettled infant? Are you worried about your child’s diet? Or perhaps you are concerned about their emotional wellbeing.
Parenting is one of the most challenging roles we face in our lives and stress around the health and wellbeing of our children can be overwhelming. As a parent of three young children herself , Dr Nicole fully understands these issues. She is available to give you the time, expertise and attention required to address your concerns.
Dr Nicole works with a close network of paediatricians and allied health practitioners including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, dieticians and psychologists and can help you access these services should they be required for your child. When it comes to issues around development, learning and behaviour, identifying the strengths and weaknesses of your child and targeting intervention will improve outcomes for children. Figuring out how and where to begin this process can be confusing. Dr Nicole can assess your child and then arrange the most appropriate pathway for further assessment or intervention as appropriate.
