Just thought I’d make use of the vast array of knowledge that is RA!
I need to get a relatively small procedure undertaken here in Canberra (removal of a smallish ‘cyst’ sort of thing from my arm). My GP (based where I am from in NSW) isn’t willing to do it because of its location, and he originally referred to me to a general surgeon where I am originally from. However, I am finding it exceptionally difficult to get an appointment with the surgeon up there that I can get time off work that is suitable to all.
Hence, I’m going to get my doctor to do a new referral to a general surgeon in Canberra, to make it easier to get it done. But I wouldn’t have a clue where to start in finding a decent general surgeon down here. I was hoping someone on here can make a recommendation based on past experiences as to who to go to.
