He migrated to Australia in 2011 to continue his paediatric training at the Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney. After completing his fellowship in General Paediatrics as the Chief Resident Medical Officer at John Hunter Children’s Hospital, Newcastle, James relocated to Melbourne with his wife in early 2018. He continues to provide paediatric care in rural settings in NSW and Victoria.

James employs an evidence based, collaborative, and family centred approach to his practice. He greatly enjoys engaging with young people and families, helping them to navigate a range of behavioural and neurodevelopmental issues.
