Recommendations for doctors in NJ
My mother has been stuggling with hair loss for quite a while. She has gone to a few doctors but they have either brushed her aside or had the worst bed side manner. Can anyone provide me with some names of understanding, sympathetic doctors that she can meet with and talk to?

Very few doctors are knowledgeable about hair loss. I have many patients from NJ come to see me in Manhattan so presumably they were not able to find help in NJ.

My book, It's Your Hormones, contains sufficient detail for doctors to diagnose and treat their patients but many are unwilling to follow recommendations from a book also intended for lay people.
