Dr Daniel Golshevsky


General Paediatrician

Dr Daniel Golshevsky consults at Melbourne Paediatric Specialists in Parkville and at Cabrini Children's Centre, Malvern and welcomes new patients and referrals.


Dr Daniel Golshevsky 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, upper airway problems and  congenital heart disease.

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.

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.


Daniel is an experienced General Paediatrician, who graduated in medicine at the University of Melbourne. Daniel has worked at The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) since 2009 and has two young children of his own. He is the former Chief Resident Medical Officer of RCH and is involved in the creation and maintenance of the RCH Clinical Practice Guidelines, an online paediatric resource used internationally. He is also a regular expert reviewer for the Raising Children Network website.


Daniel sees each patient within the context of their family, community and society. He believes that all children are unique and that a treatment plan that may work for one, may need to be tailored to suit another. Daniel also works closely with GPs, community groups and allied health professionals to create the best treatment framework for your child.


Daniel has a strong interest in research, most recently exploring the impact of media and screen time on children’s sleep and behaviour. He continued his involvement with the University of Melbourne as a tutor for medical students and is also a member of the Neurobehavioural and Paediatric Society of Australasia (NBPSA).
