Dr Sangeeta Garg (Paediatrician)
Sangeeta completed her MBBS Degree from Christian Medical College, Vellore, India. She trained in Paediatrics at the Teaching Group of Hospitals affiliated with the Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg, South Africa. Since then Sangeeta has worked as a Consultant Paediatrician in Johannesburg, Brisbane, and in the United Kingdom. Following this, she worked for 5 years in Dubbo as a full-time Senior Staff Specialist. Sangeeta was also attached to the University of Sydney’s Rural School of Health as Clinical Lecturer. However, when her daughters left home to pursue tertiary education in the bigger cities, Sangeeta accepted the exciting challenge of working and making a difference in Western Sydney.
Sangeeta finds every aspect of Paediatrics fascinating. Her special interests are developmental and behavioral paediatrics, Autism, ADHD, enuresis, allergy and asthma, cardiology, growth, and other endocrine disorders, weight management, diabetes, reflux, and other infant feeding issues.
Sangeeta aims to provide compassionate, caring and knowledgeable care to all the children and families she comes in contact with.
Sangeeta’s work ethic is from her Alma Mater- Christian Medical College, Vellore in India. The basis of her rich knowledge of organic pathology is the grueling training she received in the battlefields of Soweto in Johannesburg in the days when continuous 30-Hour Shifts were the norm. Sangeeta’s expertise in ADHD, Autism and behavioral difficulties in children was gained in her work in Brisbane and Dubbo. Her notable teachers in child psychology have been her own two daughters.
Sangeeta speaks fluent English, Hindi and can understand Urdu and Punjabi. She also knows a few words of Tamil from her years in Vellore. Sangeeta’s passions are children- helping to make their lives better and to help their parents improve their children’s lives. Sangeeta is also an advocate for children with chronic diseases and from marginalized groups.
