How to Prepare for Your First Dermatology Appointment

If you have never been to the dermatologist before, the time leading up to your first appointment may be a little nerve-wracking. As with any first appointment, you want to make sure you get your questions and concerns across and that you develop a good rapport with your doctor. Below are a few tips that can help you prepare for your first Denver skin care appointment.

Prepare a list of questions: One of the best things you can do is jot down all of the questions you may have for your dermatologist. Whether it is about a new mole that popped up on your body or you are unsure as to why your current skin care routine is failing, make a list of anything you are hoping to have answered at this appointment.

Prepare to answer questions: This is the first time your dermatologist is meeting you as well, so be prepared to answer some basic questions about your concerns. They will most likely want to know how long you have had acne or what treatments you have been trying up to this point. A dermatologist will also need to know your medical history as well, so be prepared to provide the information they need.

Provide a list of medications: If you are taking any medications, be sure to inform your dermatologist. Some medicines can interfere with others, so your specialist will need to be aware of anything you are currently using. This can also help them determine the cause of any skin conditions you are experiencing.
