I previously posted on here asking if it looked like I was having hair loss or a cowlick. I got mixed feedback, so I asked a doctor (not a derm) who said it’s not hair loss, but I want to go to a dermatologist to be evaluated so I made an appointment for 2/25. I’ve read some things on this board about people being written off by dermatologists, trying to shoo them out of the office, being dismissive, etc. I feel like I have some thinning, but nothing terribly bad. I’ve had people tell me I’m going to be laughed out of the office for even going, but it’s something I’m noticing. I guess I’m just wondering how to handle the appointment when I’ve never been to a dermatologist? I don’t really know what I’m looking for him to tell me, but I guess I’m having pre-anxiety that I feel like I’m noticing what may or may not be thinning and the dermatologist is going to think nothings wrong, thanks for coming, bye. I know I can always go to a new one, but things get expensive. Just wondering how to handle it from the beginning.
