Default Baby doctor in Abu Dhabi

Can anyone recommend a good baby doctor or hospital (for a routine check up) in Abu Dhabi? Dr Maurice Khoury at the Gulf Diagnostic Centre was recommended but he seems to have left. Cleveland Clinic also possible (but apparently it's too new so they haven't hired good baby doctors yet). Thanks!

Dr Maurice (whom we use) is moving to Healthpoint, which is a far better clinic than GDC anyway.

Cleveland Clinic has no paediatrics (or maternity).

I'd never go to a baby doctor here. I can't even imagine how they get a visa.

Do you guys get equally confused when someone says "I'm going to the eye doctor"? Do you imagine that it's an eyeball with an MD?

That would English speak, as opposed to using Greek and Latin words to describe things we have English words for.
