How to Find a Specialist Doctor Quickly and Easily – INAS Helps Desperate Mum
VICTORIA, Australia September 2014 – Finding specialist doctors can be quite the challenge, especially for Australians living in regional towns and remote areas where access to specialists can be difficult. In fact, it’s not uncommon to wait several months for an appointment with specialist doctors.
The parents of David (name changed for privacy reasons), a boy who presented with behavioural difficulties, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and hearing concerns, required a paediatrician specialising in ear, nose and throat (ENT) and surgery to perform an ADHD test and hearing tests on their son. David’s mother became desperate after making over 40 phone calls to find a specialist doctor, but was told the earliest available appointment was three months away. She approached I Need A Specialist (INAS), who was able to organise a specialist appointment for David in seven days; and all three appointments were made on the same day at the same hospital so David was seen to quickly and easily.
David’s mother says, “I can’t thank I Need a Specialist enough! After nearly 40 calls to paediatricians, the earliest appointment for an ADHD test was August this year (3 month wait). Like all parents, the stress and emotional heartache of such a long wait was excruciating! I Need a Specialist found us an ENT surgeon and paediatrician on Monday. A week’s wait! Thank you again. Our family is ever so appreciative of what you have done. Fantastic service.”
INAS owner Darren Lemin started his business after experiencing frustration and fear during his own struggle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. Without knowing anyone in the health industry at that time, Darren put his trust in their local general practitioner (GP) and hoped that she was referring him to the best specialist doctors in the field. Thankfully, the GP found a specialist doctor and, after three months of intense treatments and many near-death experiences, Darren emerged a cancer-free man. When he was finally told that he was in remission, he and his family vowed to make a difference to others.
Darren and his wife, Michelle threw themselves into fundraising and awareness for a number of different charities. They helped raise $20,000 for the Leukaemia Foundation and $15,000 for The Cancer Council’s ‘Relay for Life’. The Lemin family also took part in the walk for Juvenile Diabetes shortly before Darren’s son was diagnosed with the same disease. Through the contacts they had made and Michelle’s work in the health industry, they knew who to turn to and where to go. www.ineedaspecialist.com.au
Over the years, relatives and friends faced their own health issues and Michelle was there to help them find a specialist doctor, ensuring that they were seeing the right specialist for their particular condition. It was during this time that Darren developed an idea to form a central source for people to access healthcare specialists, and consequently I Need A Specialist was born. www.ineedaspecialist.com.au
