Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.

Can I please ask if your baby has had any recent injury, any swelling anywhere, signs of pain, fever, rash, cough, breathing issues, vomiting, etc?

Can we text can’t call

When did you notice this issues and have you noticed anything else?

You can ignore phone call requests as they are auto generated and not by me.

Just noticed last two weeks

She does turn her head left but won’t stay that side and when does tummy time pulls up more on right side

Torticollis is quite rare and what you have noticed could be something else.

If she is well otherwise, then I don't think she needs any urgent intervention now.

I suggest you monitor her now and make an appointment to see her GP tomorrow for full physical assessment in view of her age and your concerns.
