Australia specialist

Hi everyone
I’m searching for a doctor somewhere in australia that can help me. I come from a town in north qld and its goings to take 5 months to see a neurologist I can wait that long I have had bad dizziness since November I also suffer from from ringing in ears and migraines. I have had dizziness for 3 years but its gotten bad since November. I can hardly drive and find it difficult going to work so my sick leave is being used up quite fast so I need answers can someone recommend a good specialist who can help me
Thanks
Jess

Hi Jessiac
Sorry to hear you have been suffering for three years. Can you get down to Sydney? Quite a few of us from around Australia have seen Dr Ron Granot in Sydney at Bondi Junction. If you can see him as a private patient you don’t have to wait too long. If you do a search on the forum you will see that he is a very experienced neurologist & has diagnosed many patients with migraine associated vertigo. He is very thorough & will listen to your story - also very caring & approachable!
I saw him two years ago after not getting any help in Adelaide & have never regretted making the journey. I can still keep in touch with him by email with any queries I have. He has a web page with his details so take a look.

Thanks I was thinking that if I really wanted answers then I might have to go to Sydney I have read on here good reports for him I will have to check him out

Jess,

I’m another patient of Dr Granot’s. He really is very good.

Prior to seeing him you might consider giving the diet and lifestyle measures a go to see if that helps. If you’ve already done that you could consider Periactin (one of his favoured meds), it is OTC.
