Why haven’t you answered my question?

Dear Dr. I - why haven\\\'t you answered my question. I\\\'ve written several times.

Dear Readers and Friends.  I truly, truly wish I could answer each and every one of your questions.  Sadly, there are just too many questions now for me to answer them all.  I try to pick the questions that I think will have the most value to the most readers.   So….. if your question is really specific only to your situation, it’s less likely to be answered ususally.  

With a busy medical practice,  three children, and writing for content for the site, there is less time for blogging some weeks.  Also (and I know this is a novel concept :)), I really do try to make family vacations just family time.  Here in the U.S. it was Thanksgiving last week and so our family had a nice holiday with family ranging from age 85 to age 10.  I think that’s priceless and I know many of you agree with me!  So here are some thoughts for you for help:

  1.  Check on SkinTour first.  Look for your area of interest under the Topics section and also under the Blog Content section.  We’ve recently made all the blog content easier to find.
  2. Call your doctor or nurse in the office where you had the procedure if you are having a complication or a problem.
  3. If you’ve already had such a bad experience or gotten no response from your doctor, seek a second opinion.  Info on how to find a good doctor.

Hope this helps,

 Dr. I

Ask Me Something
SkinTour Skincare
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
