Dr Elizabeth Pickford
Dr Elizabeth Pickford has been a Consultant Paediatrician since 1993, working in her own practice, as well as at the RPAH Allergy Unit since 1999.
She specialises in food intolerance and allergy, and its contribution to babies’ and children’s heath and development.
She graduated from the University of Sydney in 1986 with Honours, gaining first place in her year in Paediatrics and therefore earning the Carnation Prize for “Proficiency in Paediatrics”. She completed her Specialist training at The Children’s Hospital Camperdown, and has since had many years in a busy Paediatric practice.
She has two children of her own, which makes her very approachable, and gives her a special understanding of the problems which parents sometimes face.
Dietitian Jane Dostine completed her Masters in Human Nutrition and Dietetics at The University of Sydney in 1992. She has worked with the specialist team at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Allergy Consulting Rooms for the past 14 years. Her expertise gained in the management of food intolerance and allergy is brought to her Castle Hill private practice.
Jane is a member of the Dietitians Association of Australia and recognized as an accredited practicing dietitian. She has a Certificate in Home Economics, enjoys food and nutrition writing for the media and engages in community nutrition education.
As a mother of three children, Jane is busy practicing what she preaches; healthy food and cooking, plenty of fresh air and activity, balancing work and family.
