Australian Medical Association Victorian president, Dr. Stephen Parnis has already expressed his disappointment on the inability of the government to release the list of patients waiting for his outpatient services. People who are waiting have issues needing prompt attention, such as stones in their gall bladder, said Dr. Parnis. Gallstones need quick action to prevent infections from putting a patients life at risk. The more the delays occur in that area, the more it impacts on the individuals health and adversely affects other parts of the hospital. People who are outpatients too long could end up in already overcrowded hospital emergency departments.* Victorian father and founder of a search engine to find Melbourne medical specialists I Need A Specialist, Darren Lemin says, This is exactly why we created our search engine that links patients in need with qualified and respected medical specialists in Melbourne who dont have such ridiculous waiting lists. The problem is that a high amount of GPs are referring patients to just a small number of specialists, but realistically there are many more specialists available and the patient has a right to have access to health care sooner. http://www.ineedaspecialist.com.au/ Darren was diagnosed with Acute Myloid Leukaemia 13 years ago. With a wife and 3 children all under the age of 8, it was one of the scariest times of his life. Darren was completely in the hands of the local GP who referred him to the best specialists in the field, and luckily for Darren he has been in remission ever since. But his health scare prompted a commitment from Darren and his family to spend the rest of their lives giving back to others. Darrens wife Michelle has now been working in the health industry for 15 years, and each time family or friends have had health issues they turned to Michelle to see what she could do to help them, who she recommended they saw, and sometimes she could even link them with Melbourne medical specialists that had shorter waiting lists than their GP-recommended specialist. This got Darren thinking, wouldnt it be great if everyone had access to this sort of information and contacts that are usually exclusive to people working in the health industry? http://www.ineedaspecialist.com.au/ Darren launched the online search engine for medical specialists I Need A Specialist to provide patients with options that he knows he wouldve appreciated when he was battling cancer. Patients using the I Need A Specialist service have reduced waiting times for initial appointments from 3-6 months, to under two weeks.

Michelle soon got a reputation for having valuable information on Northern Suburbs’ medical specialists and would spend hours talking with friends, family, and even strangers that were looking for a specialist. Then she would speak with specialist doctors in the Northern Suburbs she knew, sourcing information and appointments to ensure that they would be seeing the right specialist for their particular condition. Her family and friends took this information to their GP to organise a referral. That got me thinking… Wouldn’t it be great if everyone could have access to healthcare specialists in one place, to give them the knowledge to make a firm choice and the support that comes with those uncertain times? said Darren. As a result, http://www.ineedaspecialist.com.au/ was born. The I Need A Specialist website was founded in 2012 by a group of dedicated health industry experts with over 15 years of experience. Even with general search engines such as Google and Yahoo, looking for a medical specialist has always been difficult. Many of Australia’s top specialists still don’t even have websites. Darren explains, In the past, when you wanted to find a specialist, you either had to rely on your GP’s local network, word-of-mouth recommendations from friends, or place your trust in the specialist practicing at your local hospital. We knew there had to be a better way to connect patients with Australia’s leading healthcare specialist doctors online and get them in for medical treatment faster.
