About Hey Fella

We are changing how gay men access healthcare

Gone are the days waiting to get into a GP and wasting time going into the clinic only to have a awkward conversion with a doctor like "What's PrEP?"!! Using technology we are creating a new health care platform for gay men to access health care anywhere in Australia.

Why we started Hey Fella

‍Founded in Brisbane by Dr Cris Quitral and Luke Fuller - Hey Fella is your online gay doctor serving patients Australia wide 7 days a week all online. We are on a mission to:

  • Bust the stigma associated with gay mens health & sexual health (trust us, we have heard it all!)
  • Make talking to your doctor fun (we aren't your usual doctor in a white coat)
  • Provide evidence-based, respectful, sensitive, non-discriminatory care through accessible &  innovative technology when it suits you, regardless of your location (Hey Rural Australia we see you!)

Stigma and barriers to healthcare access for LGBTQIA+ community

Stigma still presents a big barrier for the LGBTQIA+ community when accessing primary care within Australia.  This together with the fact getting into a GP within Australia is becoming increasingly difficult (with upwards of 7+ day waits) this leads to poor health care outcomes and greater barriers.

  • LGBTQIA+ health knowledge & exposure is limited which leads to conversations like "What is PrEP"
  • LGBTQIA+ individuals are less likely to report having a regular GP, with 65.5% compared to 80% of the general Australian population [1]
  • Compared to work, family and educational settings, healthcare is where LGBTQIA+ Australians feel least accepted (43.4%) [2]
