MBBS, FRCPCH (UK)
"I started working at Spire Dunedin Hospital only recently but already feel the attitude and welcoming nature of the staff and facilities are good. Patients have fed back to me that they feel looked after by the staff."
I completed my specialist registrar training in Oxford Deanery in 2002 and started working as a Consultant Paediatrician at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust in Reading. I now consult at Spire Dunedin Hospital, Reading, where I look after general paediatric problems from neonates to 16 years of age.
I specialise in general paediatrics with specific interest in infant feeding problems such as reflux, cow’s milk allergy; headaches, migraine and migraine variants; fits, faints or possible epilepsy; unusual head shapes; syncope, chest pain, palpitations, heart murmurs; UTIs; respiratory problems including asthma, persistent cough; bowel problems, including recurrent abdominal pain, constipation and persistent loose stools; initial diagnosis of severe fatigue; initial assessment of developmental concerns and then appropriate onward referral; other general paediatric problems.
A GP referral is required, so that all notes are available before a consultation with me.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Ravi Kumar at Spire include:
Spire Dunedin Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
