Choosing Cayman Islands Paediatricians

I am Dr Sara Watkin, Paediatrician & Neonatologist at Optimal Healthcare and I have long been an advocate that parents should choose a paediatrician they feel they can be with throughout their child’s time in the Cayman Islands. The more we get to know your child, the better we are at helping them thrive. I encourage all of my parents to visit as many paediatricians as they need to in order to get that right. Different things are important to different families. I am known for my empathy and relationship with the children, and for having a proper formal accreditation in neonatal medicine alongside my paediatrics.
