We had our second visit with Dr. Ray last week. My daughter is generally quite anxious but thankfully Dr. Ray has a great manner for putting children at ease. She has helped my daughter and previously my son with some medical concerns, and I have always been happy with how she has dealt with the issues. She is a very practical, caring and thorough Doctor and I would recommend her to other parents for helping with their little ones.

Dr Debi Ray was fantastic with my daughter. After seeing multiple specialists and numerous GPs I finally felt reassured and listened to when I met Dr Ray. I was treated with respect and Dr Ray took her time in examining my daughter. She provided a through explanation and recommend how to proceed. I was not rushed in anyway. I would request to see Dr Ray again should my daughter have any issues in the future.

Dr Ray is a wonderful paediatrician. She diagnosed my son immediately and gave the right medication to help him get better where by GP had failed to diagnose his problem after 5 visits. Always happy to answer any questions, explains everything in an easy to understand way and I didn’t feel rushed at all.

I saw Dr Ray recently with my seven year old daughter. She was really patient and thorough. She listening to my concerns and made me feel really comfortable; she was not at all dismissive of my worries. I found her approach was thoroughly child-centred. She was able to quickly diagnose the problem and explain it clearly to us. Then, she was able to offer us a choice of suitable treatment options. I was very pleased with the whole consultation.
