Customer Question

My grandson who is 12 yrs of age suffered concussion nearly 3 months ago. He is still experiencing headaches and visual disturbance - problems with peripheral vision (mainly on the left side) seem to have developed. He has seen an optometrist who confirms this but we want him to see a paediatric neurologist however can't seem to get an appointment for weeks and we don't think he should wait that long in case something more sinister is wrong. What else can we do ? We live in Cairns Qld but willing to travel to Brisbane or interstate if necessary
