A doctor who specializes in skin care, called a dermatologist, can be a big help with your psoriasis. He'll be up to date on all the triggers you should avoid, symptoms, and treatments.

When you look for a dermatologist, start by asking your primary care doctor for a recommendation. You can also check with the American Academy of Dermatology, which has lists of specially trained doctors. A nearby medical school is another resource.

Questions to Ask a Dermatologist

Ask these questions to help you choose the right doctor for you:

  • Does your office accept my insurance?
  • How quickly can I schedule a visit?
  • Do you have patient references?
  • Are you available after hours?
  • Do you have evening or weekend hours?
  • Do you have a special area of interest in skin care?
  • How many times have you done the procedure I need?
