Any medical people here?

How do I go about finding a top oncologist in south east Queensland? I'm looking for a second opinion for my FIL. 

Thank you in advance.

Sorry to hear about your FIL.  I'm not a medico, but Mr T has just done chemo.  Both his surgeon and oncologist are Associate Professors at USyd, work in tandem at Macquarie University Hospital.  The oncologist is head of clinical trials.  Which means that, although MrT's treatment was tried and true, we know that it is still considered the best option.  If he needs more, these are the guys who will have the special tricks at their disposal.  

So, the best option I could offer would be to find the oncologist who is head of clinical trials at whichever university hospital is the best regarded in SEQ.

I know I'm a long way from you, but I can ask my riding buddies, they're all doctors and specialists, so might have some ideas for you.

Sorry to hear mate!

Tortoise, Thank you for the info. It gave me a new direction to research.

Goughy, he is in Dalby. Current treatment is being conducted in Toowoomba and Brisbane. 

He had a cough last Sep and a cough at Xmas. I didn't know it was the same cough as I don't see him often. Then prior to Easter there was blood.
