Building trusted relationships with our parents and patients is a priority to us; ensuring that parents are well-informed and patients feel safe and at ease is always important to us.

As a father himself, local paediatrician Dr Maraschin is aware of the stress parents endure and experience when their children are ill or facing discomfort. At the point when curative medicine is required, it is the aim of Dr Maraschin, whenever possible, to assess acutely ill children on the same day.

  • Dr Enrico Maraschin is one in a million, he has looked after all 3 of my children .Our association goes back almost 19 years. All 3 children have had major issues and if it wasn’t for him they wouldn’t be where they are today. We can safely say he has guided us thru thick and thin, taken our calls whenever we needed him ,met us in the middle of the night at Morningside Medi clinic for admissions, even delivered my micro premature little miracle on an off day!! If it wasn’t for Dr Rico our 815 g little girl would not have survived. Enrico is a compassionate and caring individual who has the interests of his patients at heart, his staff are fabulous people who do their best for the patients and will fit you in wherever they can. We are still very much part of the practise , and when I look back I can definitely say I am so grateful Dr Rico was on call the Saturday I went into Labour with my oldest daughter. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful doctor who has become a great friend. We are forever grateful for the care given to our 3 Treasures!!!

  • We have been with Dr Enrico Maraschin for almost 7 years now. He helped with the delivery of our two children, aged 6 and 4 now. My wife and I always like evaluate our experiences with service providers/brands that we engage/interact with. Man oh man, are we in awe of Dr Maraschin and his practice. He and the practice staff are always professional, knowledgeable and leave us with memorable experiences every time we visit his practice, albeit the fact that we would be bringing our sick children to him. Within no time after visiting him, our house is filled with lots of laughter, joy, loud screams of “mommy/daddy” and tons of priceless smiles again. Dr Maraschin’s passion and commitment to his work is unparalleled. He builds an awesome rapport with his patients. We can provide testimony to this as our kids adore him, so much so, with even the slightest of ailments, we often hear “when are we going to Dr Maraschin mommy/daddy?” We could not have chosen a better paediatrician for our children! Dr Maraschin, thank you to you and your staff for making our lives easier!

  • I am a mom of two girls. When my first daughter was born – i was so I love and so incredibly scared at the same time. Dr Marshkin was kind, patient and incredibly thorough… always taking the time to cover all bases and answer any questions or concerns that i may have had. My eldest daughter was hospitalized twice as a baby – Dr Marskin was phenomenal through this very stressful time. My girls are bigger now and they absolutely adore Enrico – he is warm and gentle and always takes the time to check my little ones out from head to toe! I am so grateful to have such a wonderful doctor for my children. You can be confident that your most previous small humans are in the best hands with this world class PAed.

  • Dr Enrico Maraschin in my family’s eyes is the BEST Paediatrician by far! I actually found Dr Maraschin when my little one was extremely ill and I called the Emergency Room to find out who was the Paediatrician on standby. They had given me Dr Maraschin’s number on a Friday evening and to my surprise, when I called at 18h00, he answered and asked that I bring my little one to his rooms. Immediately when I walked in, I could feel a caring atmosphere as Robyn Maraschin was there to take my little one as I carried him in to check his temperature and weight. As the Doctor called us to his rooms, my heart was beating rapidly as I know my little one is petrified of doctors. I did not know how he was going to react with a new doctor and being so ill – I was waiting for the screaming moment and I would blush with slight embarrassment. To my surprise, none of this happened. Dr Maraschin is so so good with children – he had my little one smiling and he was not scared for one second. At this moment, I was extremely pleased with my experience and I was a world away from my previous experiences elsewhere. I could see that Dr Maraschin had been so busy that day but he still took the time to see my little one although it was a late Friday night, and yet he still took the time to make us feel like we were the only patient there and that we were the first patient of the day – nothing was rushed. From that day on, I only went to Dr Maraschin and as I was expecting my second baby via c-section, my Gynaecologist asked which Paediatrician I would like present at the birth – with no hesitation, I simply advised that Dr Maraschin is to be there (no other Paediatrician than Dr Maraschin or else we change the c-section date). With taking my little ones to Dr Maraschin, I have always been able to talk to the doctor and get problems resolved. Coming here is like dealing with trusted family and I would not consider changing Paediatricians. I am still so thankful that I found Dr Maraschin and his team that day and that he kept his doors open so late due to his absolute passion which is so obviously seen by all his patients. Thank you so much Dr Maraschin and team for providing such convenient care and always being there no matter what.
