“Attention to detail, compassionate and individualised are some of the stand-out qualities that define the care delivered by Dr. Menakaya. I was referred to him a few weeks prior to the delivery of my daughter during a pregnancy which was considered high risk. His warm, gentle nature quickly put me at ease! He was both attentive and responsive to my concerns and I felt that my experiences and expectations were held in high regard. My husband and I were engaged at every level of decision-making, which resulted in the development of a care plan that reflected our unique circumstances and expectations. He closely followed us up after our baby was born and he has always been available for a quick phone consult which made the first few weeks of parenting a lot less terrifying! It is particularly very comforting to access in-office appointments as needed in the midst of a pandemic. Baby's growth and development is closely tracked, her vaccinations are on schedule and we always get nifty parenting tips and tricks that actually work! We have had a seamless care experience and we intend to keep him on as our family paediatrician. I cannot recommend Dr. Menakaya enough! “
