Have you ever been to your dermatologist and left feeling like they didn’t listen?

Did you ever feel like your appointment was a waste of time? Like your dermatologist threw the same old creams to you and expected you to just get on with it?

Getting what you want, and what you need from your dermatologist can be hard. No one teaches you how to get the most from a medical specialist, but there are definitely tips, tricks and hacks that you can use to get the most from your dermatologist.

This is what we are talking about today with Alisha Bridges. You will take away tried and tested solutions to some of the common challenges you face when meeting with your dermatologist. This is the episode I wish I had when I was starting out, I hope you enjoy it 🙂
