Default List of Dermatologists specializing in female hair loss

I am a journalist and I just finished writing on an article for a women's magazine about female hair loss. I also recently began experiencing hair thinning and hair loss myself, so I know what many of you are going through and wanted to pass this along. I did extensive research and interviewed a number of dermatologists who specialize in women's hair loss. These physicians may not be as high profile as Dr. Vera Price but they are equally if not more accomplished and have impressive credentials. Hope this helps.

Wow - thank you. I am in the NYC area and not too satisfied with the doctor I am seeing - can you please list what criteria used and what separates these on the list from others that did not make the list? Thank you very much !

The difference is the physicians on this list have subspeciaties in the field of Dermatology which focuses specifically on hair disorders. They have additional training and certification in their subspeciality beyond a general Certificate in Dermatology. I selected these particular dermatologiusts because they are specialists in hair disorders, they've lectured on hair disease, written extensively on the subject in medical journals and are up to date on new breakthroughs and clinical research. I can't say they are better or worse than other dermatologists who didn't make the list.

Question looking for Dermatologist in South Florida

I came across this site and have been encouraged by the information and the care that members seem to show and share with each other. I'm in need of finding a Dermatologist, Acupuncturist, really anyone that I can go to in South Florida, I live in Broward county (Fort Lauderdale) and work in Dade County (Miami). I just turned 52 last week and went through a bad divorce two years ago, and I think I've been stressing for the last 5 years. I started noticing some hair loss about 4 years ago in the front of my head, if I pulled my bangs back I could see my scalp. But I attributed to my stress and I've been in denial. I also have high blood pressure and have been taking medication for it for about 10 years. Currently taking Diovan. (Someone told me that some high blood pressure medication causes hair lost, I ask my regular Doctor but she said that the one I was taking does not) It seems that within the last 6 months, my thick wavvy hair, is now thin, not much body and when I run my fingers through my hair, I can feel that a third of my hair is gone. I'm no longer in denial, so now I'm freaking out. I've been reading different articles on line and came across something that said that if body lacks "iodine" that could case hair lost among other things, it suggested eating eggs, strawberries, seaweed and a number of other foods that contain iodine. I have not heard anyone on this site mention anything about this. I'm trying to relax and keep myself from stressing, but everytime I pass a mirror or run my fingers through my hair, it all comes back again. My parents who are now 86 and 81 both have thining hair, so I'm hoping it's not hereditary. I just want to get to the bottom of this and find out if its a dificiency, hereditary, stress or something else. I hope someone can give me some directions or advise. Thank you

Default Recommend a Doctor or Dermatologist in Iowa

How do I locate or which website could I go to find a Dermatologist in the state of Iowa whom have subspeciaties in the field of Dermatology which focuses specifically on hair disorders?

Would the website of American Academy of Dermatology be a good place to start to find a reputable (and someone who is experienced & knowledgable in hair loss*) dermatologist in the state of Iowa?

Furthermore, should I go to a Dermatologist or an Endocrinologist to determine the underlying reason for my hair loss?

Thank you!! Appreciate any help that one could provide. LOVE that I have found this site. It's been extremely helpful and comforting to know that I am not alone.

» Forum Vs. Network ?
What Is The Difference Between The Network and The Forum? The "Network" is a social network much like facebook and myspace, only it's just for women with hair loss. A forum is more of a bulletin board to post a question or story for others to read and to receive responses. It's easy and direct. I am hoping that the forum will be easy and inviting for those women who are uninterested or find it difficult to do the social network thing.
