    Dr. Ray was brilliant! Knowledgeable, sensitive, personable, informative, caring, sincere and more. I immediately felt at ease and more importantly so did my 3-year old daughter. Dr Ray took time to initially build rapport with my daughter before she went into the examination stage. When examining my daughter, she made it seem very natural so as to make my daughter feel comfortable. She responded to my questions with great thought. Overall I was highly impressed by Dr Ray's approach and delivery which was refreshing compared to the monotonous doctor experiences I've become all too accustomed with.

    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.
