"Is there cardiac coronary stenting fraud within Australia?"

About: The Sunshine Coast Private Hospital

(as the patient),

I have been informed by the Mayo Heart Centre [USA -Files in my possession] that I should never have been in a cath lab or had three cardiac stents fitted. All my files were uploaded to the Mayo by my local GP and it has taken me over four years for a health clinician to confirm this: I did not have any symptoms of coronary heart disease but the cardiologist at a private Queensland Hospital made it appear as such. The doctor even recorded the "patient presented with a history of chest pain" but my GP states I had no history of chest pain, [damaged chest muscle only, 5 years earlier] Both the GP’s and the cardiologist files are in my possession. It seems that this is a procedure for money only and, from my point of view, that some cardiologists in Australia would not write a true clinical report, which is why I had to go to the Mayo for an unbiased honest report.

I consider with the reports in my possession that some specialists in Australia could operate in a more honest, open, professional manner.
