Red face Looking on Long Island

Hi, I'm sorry, I don't have a recommendation, but I'm hoping someone knows a good hair-loss specialist on Long Island, in NY. I already know about Dr Redmond (in NYC) and Dr Ted Daly in Garden City. If you have any other names, I'd love to know. Thank you.

Hey Victoria - I haven't heard of Dr. Ted Daly, is he known for treating women's hair loss? Did you ever see him or Dr. Redmond?

Yes, Dr Daly is a hair-loss specialist, I saw him in October 2007. He sent me for a ton of bloodwork, and except for low iron, found nothing wrong. He did two biopsies. When I came back for the results (3rd visit) I was only allowed to see a nurse, who said I had AGA. She gave me prescriptions for clobex and something else (I can't remember, but it was an awful foam), told me use Rogaine and take lysine, biotin, a muktivitamin and tums (for calcium). She cut a chunk of my hair while removing the stitches. I had questions she could not answer, and told me if I wanted to see the doctor again, I'd need to make another appt. He did not accept my insurance, I did not make another appt. To me, it was like "take 2 aspirin and call me in the morning". I personally was not happy there.

OMG, I'm so sorry for experience you had with this doctor. I think that story is similar to what many women experience when they see doctors for their hair loss. It seems it simply isn't taken seriously and the doctor (men and women) are very callus to the whole thing. You know because it isn't life threatening or anything. I sort of beg to differ on that. How many times have you been driving in your car and glanced at your hair loss in the rearview mirror? I've done it more times than I'd like to admit, I'd say that's pretty darn dangerous eh? I never did that before my hair loss, I always kept my eyes on the road at all times. I smack myself each time I do it.

Oh, I am so guilty of that too! Just this morning I did it. And then I was checking my eyebrows - they've gotten sooo patchy - It's pretty humid here so I was trying to make sure my bangs hadn't curled up and that my eyebrows were sort of covered (not as easy as it used to be since my bangs are thinner too!)
Plus the stress it causes is very bad for us (don't you love the doctors who tell you not to stress about it? Oh, OK, sure!).

And I hope you had a nice day yesterday

First the doctors tell you the cause of your hair loss is STRESS, then they tell you not to stress out about your hair loss. AHH HA HA HA LOL -- says the 50 year old male doctor with a full head of hair.

Yes I did have a nice day yesterday.. Thank You! xoxo

Default Dr Redmond

The only other "hair loss expert" I have heard of online is Dr. Redmond. Has anyone here been to him? I dont think I can handle a trip all the way into the city because I have been ill, but if he is absolutely amazing or something, I would consider it.

Any other hair loss experts on Long Island besides Dr. Daly? I wish I could find a list online somewhere of dermatologist that specialize in hair loss.. Does any such list exist?

Vicki-- I know you had your thyroid levels checked, but i cant remember if you had your thyroid antibodies checked to rule out hashimotos. I know the eyebrow hair loss is indicative of hashimotos thyroiditis (Sorry if I already talked about this with you.. my memory is so bad now. Just wanted to mention it just in case I hadnt) *HUGS*

Hi Elissa, I don't know if the thyroid antibodies were checked, but I'll put that on my list too. Thank you for mentioning it.

As for Dr Redmond, there seem to be quite a few women on the network who've seen him...I think you can do a search of blogs by putting his name in.

And I really hope you feel better!!! xxx

Yes- I have been seeing Dr Redmond for over a year now- after a bunch of horrible experiences with other doctors. I to did the trip sick and yes it is worth it- he is amazing. Also- if you are feeling up to it and can splurge, Dov at Dov Salon in NYC is amazing. He specializes in hair loss and is the most compassionate person I ever met.
Good luck.

» 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.
