Dr Rania is an experienced Paediatrician who is originally from Lebanon, grew up in Dubai, and studied medicine in London, before returning to Dubai            11 years ago.

She has a passion for treating the child as a whole, with wellness and disease prevention at the core of her practice. She believes that to maintain good health, one needs to address all the aspects of life: physical, mental and social, and focuses on educating and empowering parents and children to take ownership over their health and wellness.

Dr Rania’s particular area of interest and expertise is in Gastroesophageal Reflux and in feeding difficulties of newborns and infants. She treats all other areas of paediatrics such as childhood asthma, allergic rhinitis, recurrent cough, abdominal pain, growth concerns, as well paediatric rashes and skin conditions such as eczema and urticaria.

Dr Rania’s vision for ‘Redefining Family Care’ culminated in her establishing Circle Care Clinic in December 2019. Circle Care Clinic puts the child at its core, and extends its healthcare services to all other members of the family, with views to providing a one-stop shop for all their health-related needs.
