Can anyone recommend an empathic gyne oncologist who is proactive and holistic in their treatment approach, and up to date with relevant trials?
The best advice I can offer you is to talk to your GP. Depending on where you live as which Dr's are available. If you were in QLD I would have recommended Dr Lou Perrin. He is and Oncology Gynecologist. I have been a patient of his for many years. He practices out of the Royal Woman's Hospital in Brisbane and also has rooms at the Mater Hospital in Brisbane. Hope this has been helpful. Have a lovely day and I hope you find a Dr that you like.
Thanks so much for your advice and I realise I left my area off the email. I am in Victoria unfortunately. We are working with my GP to find a good one but so far no luck. Will keep trying.
OCA are unable to recommend specific gynae-oncologists but I have attached a link to gynae-oncologists who practice in each state of Australia:
You may find it helpful to print it off and take to your doctor. Other women on this forum may be able to share what they have found helpful in choosing a doctor as well.
