I tried calling several dermatologists to make an appointment and the soonest appointment I could get was June 26th. One place couldn't get me in until September! Luckily, I was able to get an appointment with a PA for next week. I am so happy that I will get someone to look at this problem soon. The receptionist said that the dermatologists at this place mainly do surgery and don't treat general problems. Is there any difference between a dermatologist vs. a PA? I have this fear that the PA or even doctor won't take the problem seriously. I still have my appointment in June in case the PA doesn't work out. Also, are there any specific questions I should ask or things I should mention to make sure I get the most effective treatment?
