Looking for a Specialist Doctor Made Easier & Faster with New Melbourne Medical Specialists Search Website
MELBOURNE, Australia December 2013 – Statistics published by The Age 2011 audit show that, as of June 30 in 2011, 79,000 people were waiting for their first doctors’ appointment and about 55,000 Victorians were on the elective surgery wait list. Victorian Health Minister David Davis reveals that waiting times for care have also blown out with scores of patients waiting longer than clinically recommended times for care.*
“As a leukaemia survivor who would have died within weeks had my condition gone undiagnosed, this kind of wait to have serious (or even just seriously irritating) medical conditions which impact on quality of life looked at did not sit well with me at all,” says Darren Lemin, now Director of I Need A Specialist, a search engine to help Australians looking for a specialist doctor. “The reality is there are many Melbourne medical specialists qualified and available for appointments, but GPs and hospitals often only recommend a small proportion of specialists who already have really long waiting lists – it just seems inefficient for all parties.” www.ineedaspecialist.com.au/
When it comes to health, an area where inefficiencies could mean life or death, Darren believed something more should be done to show patients how to see a specialist faster. That’s why he created I Need A Specialist (INAS), a free website that provides a fast and easy way to search for Australia’s leading healthcare specialists and request an appointment online. I Need A Specialist offers full access to a community of Australia’s leading healthcare specialists, who can be easily found with search options such as specialty, suburb, hospital name etc. – giving Aussies real choice and peace of mind when it comes to selecting the right healthcare specialist for their family.
Darren says, “Many of the patients that contact us looking for a medical specialist have a wait of 3-6 months for their appointments by a GP referred specialist, and since we launched the I Need A Specialist service, the wait time for appointments has only ever been between 1 day and two weeks so using this service has quite literally changed lives.” www.ineedaspecialist.com.au/
Melissa from Doreen, Victoria was also looking for a specialist doctor online and found one at I Need A Specialist. She says, “I can’t tell you how thankful I am! I am crying right now! Thank you! You have saved my daughter’s life.”
Brendan Thomson from Plenty, Victoria found the Melbourne medical specialists he needed with the help of I Need A Specialist. He says, “I recently needed to find two specialists for different issues. Both appointments were made very promptly and I have been booked in for procedures at a local private hospital. Thanks for making it so easy. Great service.”
