He is supportive and very thorough, takig a full and detailed history and family history of symptoms. (He often runs late as he is so thorough.) First consult is very detailed and comprehensive. Measures postural drop correctly as so few doctors do and tests blood pressure throroughly on subsequent visits. Doing active research. Especially good for OI/POTS and EDS (Orthostatic intolerance, Postural orthostatic tachycarcic syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome - and there are comparatively few doctors who are informed in these areas at the moment. I would highly recommend this doctor; I have seen him over a year now. Clinic staff are wonderful too. He responds to emails from new patients so email him (or phone the clinic 9496 5029)to see if he is suitable for you before getting your GP to fax a referral to him is best.||Respond|
