    Dr Ray has been seeing my 3 young children for 4 years now and every time she is amazing! Dr Ray always manages to fit us in, no matter how last minute. The children have a thorough check over and we leave with whatever is needed . Not only is Dr Ray an amazing, professional Dr who makes the children feel at ease, it is always a pleasure to be in her company as she is such a bubbly, positive person. Thank you!

    We met Dr Debi Ray to discuss our 9yr old daughters health where she is experiencing brief head pains. Dr Debi put our minds at rest and examined our daughter reassuring her of everything she was doing along the way. She's arranged a follow up in a month to check on everything and also given us her card in the event we need to contact her. Absolutely lovely consultant with a down to earth attitude.

    Excellent paediatrician. Sees all general paediatrics and specialises in developmental issues. I highly recommend her. Refers her children with ENT problems to me and they have always been treated properly first before being sent to me for an expert ENT opinion. I’ve especially seen a lot of her paediatric patients with ear infections, hearing loss, speech delay, snoring, tonsillitis, nose bleeds and tongue tie.
