MBBS FRACGP IBCLC PhD

Medical Director, General Practitioner

Dr Pamela Douglas is founder of Possums, a general practitioner since 1987, and researcher. She is an Associate Professor (Adjunct) with the Maternity and Family Unit, Centre for Health Practice Innovation at Griffith University, and a Senior Lecturer with the Discipline of General Practice, The University of Queensland. She enjoys working with families across the spectrum of challenges in early life, many complex, including unsettled infant behaviour, reflux, allergies, tongue-tie and oral connective tissue problems, and gut problems. She first qualified as a lactation consultant in 1994, and has developed a uniquely holistic, non-judgemental, and empowering approach to breastfeeding support (gestalt breastfeeding). She is dedicated to prevention and early intervention for both parent mental health issues and childhood learning, behaviour, and developmental problems. Pam also has long-standing special interests in women's health, mental health, and sexual health. www.pameladouglas.com.au

 

Dr Pamela Douglas - Fees

Please note: if the initial consultation is for a parent and child, exact fees and rebates are dependent on duration of each of the two consultations occurring within the appointment. The figures given in this table are usual, but may change slightly. Whilst children under 16 years of age registered with Medicare* incur no out-of-pocket expenses, further information about fees for individual adult appointments longer than the standard below is available at reception 07 3036 4081.

* Young babies not yet registered with Medicare are billed privately - you can then claim the rebate yourself once you register.
