What should I consider when considering a Dermatologist?
To find a Dermatologist, ask your Doctor for a referral. Word of mouth is still one of the best ways to find a Doctor. You can search by location, convenient hours, Medical School training, but you need to be comfortable with your choice. Your first visit can give you a great idea if you will be happy. Did the Doctor listen, was the staff warm and helpful, did explanations make sense, were treatments recommended appropriate? For some, gender is a consideration. That said, the Dermatology workforce is quickly becoming a 50/50 split between males and females.
