Diving physician recommendation

Wonder if anyone can help me out with recommending a diving physician in Melbourne for me? Looking through themail SPUMS directory, it seems most doctors registered on there are GPs or specialists in areas not specifically diving related.

I've been diagnosed with sarcoidosis, and would like to see a diving physician who is able to interpret my symptoms, chest scans (xrays and CT), and my reaction to treatment, and advise me of the outlook of my short and long term diving impact.

After contacting a couple of doctors listed on the SPUMS website that I couldn't find a suitablend appointment time, I called the alfred hyperbaric unit for a suggestion. They recommended that any diving doctor will be a suitable first point of contact, and that if they find they need further assistance that they would either contact or refer me to the Alfred hyperbaric unit.

So I found a convenient doc in the city, and will take myself along with xrays and CT scans to see him during the week.
