Heymanse Posted June 11, 2010 Report Share Posted June 11, 2010 (edited) Anyone know of South African doctors in the Hills District or for that matter, anywhere else in Sydney? Like a previous forumite, I'm getting frustrated with doctors here - I have to this day not seen one Australian doctor either, just doctors that have immigrated from other countries. There has been rare occasions where they actually got the diagnosis correct but more than often they don't. Just 2 weeks ago I went to see a doctor w.r.t. a rash I had after returning from a trip to Fiji. I told the doctor that I think sandflies bit me - he neither confirmed nor denied that the rash was as a result of sandfly bites. Gave me an ointment and the rash got so bad that I went back to another doctor three days later. She took one look at me and said I had shingles, possibly chickenpox because the rash seemed to have spread to other parts of my body. Thanks to google, I did my own research when I didn't get better after 5 days and realised that the only thing I had was hives - an allergic reaction due to bug bites I got in Fiji and nothing that a good ointment against the itching and antihistamine tables won't fix! So now I'm over and done with all these foreign doctors that just do some guess work as to what is wrong with you and don't do throrough examinations / tests before coming to a conclusion. So if you know of a South African doctor out there, please let me know. Edited June 11, 2010 by Heymanse Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
