Physicians List

We do know of some Respiratory Physicians in NSW who are treating NTM Patients. At this time, we do not have their formal agreement to publish their names in this web site. As soon as we have their formal agreement we will list their names and contact details here.

If your doctor suspects you may have TB, then we suggest you obtain a referral to the Royal Darwin Hospital.

The Centre of Disease Control -Tuberculosis / Leprosy / Nontuberculous Mycobacteria

Telephone: 08 8922- 8304

You will need to produce three mucus samples taken one week apart. The mucus samples will need to be kept in the refrigerator and taken to the Hospital.

The symptoms for TB and NonTuberculosis Mycobacterium (NTM) are very similar. If the Hospital considers you may have NTM, then be prepared for the diagnosis to take many months. NTM is difficult to diagnose and takes time to determine the best treatment regime for you.
