Dr Toby Greenacre
Paediatrician in Nowra and NSW South Coast
About Dr Toby Greenacre – Care, Service & Communication
The guiding principles of Dr Toby Greenacre’s paediatric practice are Care, Service and Communication. We believe that our children, their good health and education are our country’s greatest asset.
Toby is a Consultant Paediatrician who completed his Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery in 1977 at the University of Sydney. He completed five years of paediatric training at the Children’s Hospital in Sydney in 1983. In his final year he was Chief Resident and became a member of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. He began his practice as the first full time paediatrician in the Shoalhaven in 1984.
Toby has worked for over thirty years as a paediatrician, resettling his family with his wife and commencing his practice in the Shoalhaven. They have five children, two of whom were born here. He has a deep commitment to the children of the Shoalhaven region demonstrated by his services to the local hospital, extensive outreach clinics to Ulladulla and beyond to the Victorian border, and work with the Shoalhaven Kids In Need charity.
Toby holds a long term commitment to teaching and mentoring students and staff at the hospital and has close personal links with many specialists in NSW.
By referral only
Toby sees children by appointment only, following a referral from their family doctor or hospital. We ask that referrals be forwarded to us by fax, mail or in person, prior to making an appointment. This assists us in ensuring appropriate time has been set aside for the consultation.
An initial consultation may take up to 45 minutes and follow up appointments may take up to 30 minutes. It is very helpful if only the child that is being seen by Toby is brought to the consultation. This assists both parents and doctor to concentrate fully on the needs of the child being seen. We do appreciate that this is not always possible.
Making an appointment
Please call Toby’s friendly team on 02 4421 3088 during business hours to make an appointment for either the Nowra or Milton/Ulladulla clinics. Courtesy SMS reminders are forwarded to your nominated mobile number two working days prior to your appointment.
An appointment should be made for all prescription requests. This enables ongoing assessment of treatment, and provides an opportunity to assess patient progress.
In the interest of patient care and good medical practice, test results will be discussed at a consultation with Toby.
Referrals to hospitals
Toby refers children requiring tertiary care either to the Sydney Children’s Hospital or the Children’s Hospital Westmead.
Emergencies and after hours
If your child requires urgent medical attention, call 000 and ask for ambulance assistance. For non-urgent assistance, contact your General Practitioner after hours service or go to the nearest Accident and Emergency Department at your local hospital.
