Dr Lawrence at Bayside Women’s Health is supported by Linda and Jenny who are highly experienced, capable and dedicated reception staff. They are easily accessible, at the rooms, and can assist with queries you may have regarding the practice.
All babies delivered by Dr Lawrence will be referred, soon after birth, for expert paediatric examination. The reasons for this are twofold. Firstly to ensure that problems with newborns are quickly and expertly managed, and secondly to establish a link with a paediatrician should problems or queries arise at a later date.
