How to Find Specialist Doctors In Rural Areas or Online


MELBOURNE, Australia December 2013 – Most Australians living in the major metropolitan areas are lucky enough to have access to expert medical care, numerous specialists and a choice of hospitals.  But in this vast country, some people in rural areas do not have access to the medical specialists they need. Leukaemia survivor Darren Lemin says, “Many people who live in rural Australia don’t have access to specialist healthcare. Thankfully, some specialists use an Internet-based service, Telehealth, which allows patients to communicate with specialist doctors remotely. This service removes some of the barriers to accessing medical services for Australians. This is especially useful to those who have difficulty getting to a specialist or those who live in rural and remote areas. The Specialist, GP and patient have a video conferencing consultation without the patient leaving their home town.”

Yet, if the GP-referred specialist doctors online is booked out for months in advance, this service does not help the patient get the earliest available appointment. Fortunately, since his own life-threatening medical scare, Darren’s commitment to supporting others through their medical challenges drove him to create a search engine for specialist doctors in rural areas or online called I Need A Specialist, which can help cut down the waiting time dramatically by linking the patient directly with the specialist they need.

Darren explains how the I Need A Specialist system works. “When you visit, you can search for Australia’s leading healthcare specialist doctors online and request an appointment quickly and easily. I Need A Specialist broadens your access from the specialists your GP may recommend, to a nationwide community of Australia’s leading healthcare specialists – giving patients  real choice and peace of mind when it comes it selecting the right healthcare specialist for you and your family.”

I Need A Specialist is a completely free service for patients that helps them find specialist doctors online or in rural areas and request an appointment. Before contacting I Need A Specialist, most patients initially had to wait 3-6 months for their respective appointments with a GP-referred specialist, but by using I Need A Specialist these patients cut their waiting time down to under 2 weeks, in some cases getting an appointment the same day.

I Need A Specialist client Deb from Echuca was very grateful for her experience. She says, “It was suggested by a friend that I contact you to see if you could help me find a specific specialist. Living in a country town, you don’t always know where to ascertain the information you require. Thank you for guiding me and assisting me with an appointment. I was unaware we even had this service in Echuca.”

Alana D of Ferntree Gully, Victoria says, “A great way to find a healthcare specialist quickly and close by. I’ll be telling my friends about”
