I agree with every thing Giggle says and I could'nt agree more about the Greenslopes Specialist Centre.
I have a cancer problem as well as Lupus and I can't speak highly enough of the specialists or the Greenslopes hospital.
I'm in Pacific Pines so a little south of Ormeau, but I travel to Greenslopes, its an easy run from our way.
However I see my Rheumy at Southport Specialist Centre.
The first thing to do is get a good GP who can do a Referal for you to a Specialist
If you would like to catch up when you're up at Ormeau you could pm me. Don't know if you have transport, I can always come up.
My brother in law is shifting to Ormeau from Perth in a fortnights time, so I'll be coming up that way regularly in the future.
Look forward to chatting to you
