Dr Leo's Philosophy of Care
Philosophy of Care
I believe strongly in practising modern, up-to-date medicine that is based on robust evidence.
I adapt readily to changes in the practice of paediatric care. The basic care I provided 20 years ago has changed tremendously since.
To me, every child is unique. Thus, developing a relationship with children, teenagers, and families is important for me to provide the right care each child needs.
Reduce Medication Reliance
I am a strong believer that most children need few or no medications, and enjoy working with parents to determine what medicines will help, and what is unnecessary. This is a central part of my practice.
