A Note to Parents ...

Dear Parents,
It is a constant worry for all parents today whether our child is growing and developing well in accordance with the normal milestones. The good news is that it is easy to know about growth just as one can measure and follow up the weight, height and head circumference. Development however is more subjective and often we are unsure whether child's cognitive, social, emotional, social behaviour and academic performance are on the right track. It is here that Early Screening & Intervention is important so that developmental disabilities are identified early and addressed which serves to enhance the child's learning and development, minimise developmental delays and result in positive outcomes in school and social life.

We, at Dr.KMH would like to put your worries at rest. The Child Development Centre at Dr.KMH is one of the most advanced state of the art centre with the latest technologies and an experienced team of Doctors and nurses under its roof. This camp would be an ideal opportunity for you to address your child's problems ( or even rule them out ) and ensure their development is on the right track. It is towards this end that we have worked out some special packages to suit your specific needs.

It gives me great pleasure in introducing our dedicated team of professionals our department who are there to serve you with great empathy and care.
