Our goal is to provide excellent service with a caring and compassionate approach to your patients needs. I take care to reinforce your role as your patient’s primary physician and my role as a consultant. Patients with urgent medical or surgical needs are given priority in the appointment system. Appointments for nonurgent medical problems are scheduled several days to several weeks in advance. I routinely forward a summary of diagnostic reports and treatments to you (and any relevant parties) within 48 hours of consultation.
I treat a broad range of conditions including asthma, emphysema, asbestosis, mesothelioma, silicosis, sarcoidosis and bronchitis. Also, sleep disorders including sleep apnoea, periodic leg movement disorder, insomnia and narcolepsy. I am also happy to discuss any potential patients over the phone should you have any queries.
Our onsite Respiratory Laboratory uses modern Jaeger equipment and we conduct many diagnostic tests including Spirometry, Flow volume loops, Complex lung function and Mannitol Challenges. These may be performed independantly of a consultation if required.
Also, my wife, Dr Linda Allen, offers psychiatric treatment to patients with cancer (particularly breast), grief, depression and anxiety.
In our rooms we have a resident CPAP specialist through Genesis Sleepcare.
Referral pads for consultations, external lung function testing and sleep studies, can be ordered by contacting the rooms on (07) 3719 5577 or here.
External lung function tests are all personally reported on within 48 hours.
