Does anyone know of list of doctors I can use to find a Dermatologist in Birmingham Alabama that specialize in hair loss. The one that pulled up on HairDX test was the one that I already saw. He didn't do much, took a quick look at my head and said you got 3 options propecia, rogaine and transplant. Although he said I wasn't quite yet a canadite for transplant. I told him my fear of propecia, again he didn't say much one way or the other. He said he has several patients has used it and no one has ever stopped taking it due to the sides. He then said that he took it for 5 or 6 years himself and then decided that its only hair and therefore he stopped. Which made me question if the drug is so great why did he stop taking it? . He also mentioned a genetic test but said it doesn't prove much all you have to do is look in the mirror to see if your prone to baldness. I was wondering if I could find someone who specialized in hair loss that my be able to provide a little more input. My fear is that he was speaking the truth whether or not you want to risk the treatments is a personal decision that doctors can't really help you with.
