Dr Moodley has been in private practice since 2015 and is currently consulting at Life Entabeni Hospital, Life Mt Edgecombe Hospital and The Gateway Private Hospital.
Her approach to paediatric care is that of prevention, early detection of disease and initiation of suitable treatment - involving the least invasive investigations and the use of appropriate medication in the care of ailing children.
