Hi all,

I wondered if any of you lovely folk might be able to recommend a good GP? (Please feel free to PM me if you'd rather not name them publicly.)

I'm asking on behalf of a friend who has recently moved to Melbourne. He is having a lot of trouble with severe fatigue, and has been consistently fobbed off by the doctor he is seeing at the moment. His current GP insists that his symptoms are related to mental health (my friend is sure that they aren't) and has basically dismissed his concerns. My friend is understandably upset, and wants to find a doctor who would be willing to investigate the issue further.

He is based in North Melbourne, but is happy to travel anywhere if he can find someone who will listen to him.

Many thanks in advance  original.gif

I've found all of the doctors at East Brunswick Medical Centre to be excellent.

I hope your friend gets some answers soon.

Carlton Medical Centre in Rathdowne Street is good.

Yes, these ones are very good by reputation too, but perhaps a little far for your friend.

Thank you so much for your suggestions everyone! EB is such a great resource for things like this  biggrin.gif

I've directed my friend to this thread, hopefully he can find someone to help. As I said, he's willing to travel for a good doctor.

Rather conveniently, he actually lives in Coburg, not North Melbourne - I had my suburbs mixed up  ddoh.gif  (In my defense, I've only just moved to Melbourne myself!)

Sorry folks,

I've removed comments about specific Drs as per the EB Forum Rules (one post removed and two edited).
I have left posts recommending group practices.

You are welcome to use the pm system for specifics.

Kind regards,

Oops, sorry lucky 2, I wasn't aware of the rules. Apologies.

That's convenient, I hear that the clinic in Coburg is really excellent, although sometimes they are so busy that they close their books to new patients. East Brunswick is the next suburb and Carlton isn't far away so I'm sure he'll find somewhere close by. original.gif
