Scalp Examination

hair & scalp examination, diagnosis & treatment

During the consultation, David will try to establish the cause of the problem by examining the scalp and obtaining information from the patient. If necessary, the hair can be examined microscopically or analysed for its mineral levels. David may suggest that specific blood tests be run.

Once the problem has been diagnosed, David will discuss the cause with the patient and decide whether the problem:
• requires topical and/or internal treatment and, if so,
which treatment would be most beneficial
• is such that referral is necessary.
