How do I choose a doctor to see about psoriasis?

ANSWER

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

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