"Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency/ AHPRA"

About: Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency

(as the patient),

I lodged a legitimate complaint to AHPRA against a cardiologist in Queensland in respect to falsifying files of consultations, a procedure performed without the symptoms, and the over prescription of Crestor medication. Without going in to their response in depth, the facts are, they failed to answer the pertinent questions re: The reason for cardiac stenting, and lack of my symptoms for same. They appeared to disregard any medical evidence gleaned from medical facilities around the world, and instead seemed to rely on the Medical Health Board cardiologist, who practices together in the same Sunshine Coast Buderim Private Hospital, and is a colleague of this incompetent cardiologist I have lodged the complaint about. In my opinion this is bias at its highest, in these incompetent Health and Government bodies.

Section F of their response States: ‘the dosage of crestor is applicable to the Australian Heart Foundation guidelines’ > I believe this is a total lie, as when I contacted the Heart Foundation they emphatically stated that it is up to the clinician to monitor and prescribe dosage.

I have been informed from another independent body that they know of this incompetent cardiologist in NSW, and that he is on their black list. They also stated that he is known to Queensland Health and believe he should be deregistered.
