I’m not sure if this is the right group, but I am after some recommendations for a functional GP in WA for a second opinion.  I have been seeing my current functional GP and nutrionist for the past year and I’m not sure we have got very far.

I potentially have mould, candida, Perimenopause, a list of symptoms.

I’m on a tonne of supplements and have done a heap of testing.

I have been giving the names of Dr Nuttal and Dr Price.

Thanks in advance

I was looking in to going to visit a whole practice of functional/ wellness medicine in Mosman Park.  It starts with an R.  I’m not sure if you are allowed to name names?   Was this the place you were visiting?  It looks good but is expensive.  If it isn’t maybe have a look at this place.

Good ones seem to be hard to find in Perth as well as finding a good normal  GP!

So sorry, I didn’t get notifications to say I had any replies.

Sea princess - I saw a GP who specialised in women’s health and an Endo for over a year.  They made me 100% worse. They prescribed me with 3 different hormones and I had a very dark year.

I am still seeing a GP but she is also a Functional GP.  If you don’t mind sharing the GP I will do some research.

Crazyazy - I know what clinic you are referring to.  I’m currently seeing a Dr at our local GP who also works at another medical centre.  I can PM you the name if you are interested.

Yes finding a good GP is hard and I have been told I’m  ot a normal case too many times.
