Welcome to Gosford Paediatrics!
We provide comprehensive medical care for babies, children and adolescents aged from 0 to 18 years.
Our larger and newly furnished rooms at Hills Street Professional Centre in Gosford, allows our Paediatrician, Dr Anthony Zehetner, to care for your newborn, child or teenager in modern, comfortable surroundings.
Free parking across the road in the dedicated patients car park and an internal lift are provided for your convenience.
The forecourt and main entrance to Hills Street Professional Centre is currently undergoing maintenance and renovation works.
For some days in September and October 2017, access to the building will be via an internal stairwell (entrance through the staff car park driveway beneath the building).
Unfortunately pram and wheelchair access will not be available on those days. Our staff will try to inform you if you are affected by the building works though some late changes may still occur.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
