Your Pediatric & Family Medicine Team for Children's Services

OASIS International Hospital

    Good communication is vital in the healthcare profession. Gathering a comprehensive medical history is by no means a simple task for a doctor. It is equally demanding for the patient to convey their ailments and medical history and to understand the suggested treatment. If the patient is a young child, this situation can be infinitely more difficult for the child and their parents.

    At OASIS International Hospital, we do our best to meet both your healthcare and language needs, so visiting the doctor while abroad, won’t be such a culture shock, and your voice will be heard and understood.

    “Working here in China, I’ve come to understand the vital role I’ve come to play in their healthcare system. In this foreign environment, the ability to communicate with patients and parents in a language they understand, to educate and most of all, reassure them is very important. Building a rapport with patients and parents is also key in Pediatrics and of course the healthcare profession. Being a doctor is more than just treating the illness. Being someone who’s approachable and trusting is also important, so parents feel they can air their concerns about their children’s healthcare needs.”

    “For some reason, I always wanted to be a doctor. I suppose it was because the few times that I became ill, the kind doctors who looked after me, and in my eyes, made be better, impressed me very much and they became my role model. My parents had migrated from Greece to Australia before I was born, so I went for my medical studies at Sydney University.”

    “I have always been very interested in mysteries and getting to the bottom of seemingly complicated cases. To me, being a doctor is being a specialized health detective. I enjoy piecing together different symptoms and trying to find an underlying diagnosis. As a general practitioner, I see people of all ages with every single complaint imaginable. Each case is different because each person is different and how symptoms affect their lives is so variable.”
