When to call your dermatologist, plastic surgeon or doctor?
Dear readers and friends – Please pay close attention to this!! An online site is never, ever a substitute for calling your doctor. If you are having a side effect after treatment, a reaction that you’re not sure about, panicking or worrying about something more than a little, you need to call your doctor!!! More on finding a good doctor.
Call right away for anything that could be serious. If it’s a more routine question, waiting a day or two or three could be fine, but only you can determine that. And if you have lost faith in or don’t communicate well with your doctor, then it might be time to seek a second opinion.
This is also why I really advocate against going to "clinics" for any procedure if there isn’t a board certified doctor (in the appropriate specialty) on site full time or close to it. If you have a problem, a "weekend certified technician" is not going to be able to help you. There are some things where cheaper is not better.
