Dr Daniel Golshevsky (Golly)

Dr Daniel Golshevsky (Dr Golly) specialises in children’s acute and chronic medical conditions from birth to 18 years, with particular interests in unsettled babies, continence, constipation and toileting problems, as well as sleep & behaviour issues, autism & ADHD and upper airway problems.

Daniel has rooms at Cabrini Health (Malvern, Victoria), Melbourne Paediatric Specialists (Parkville, Victoria) and works at The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne. He is a board-member with Tiny Hearts Education, providing quality, multi-lingual baby, infant and child first aid CPR and birthing courses to parents around Australia.

Practicing holistic care with a family-centred approach, he believes that every child needs a management plan that is tailored to them, within their psycho-social environment. Parent education is a major focus for Daniel and in addition to overseeing an overhaul of more than 300 paediatric fact sheets for The Royal Children’s Hospital Kids Health Info library, he produces video content of common children’s health problems.

Daniel also has a strong interest in the media and its positive and negative effects on children’s health. Known in the media as Dr Golly, he appears regularly on Channel Seven’s Good Friday Appeal as well as other television and print features.
