New online consultation platform

Due to the current climate of self-isolation, social distancing and concerns about ‘unnecessary journeys’ we have taken steps to ensure we can still help you with your hair loss & scalp problems.

We have introduced an ‘On-line Consultation’ platform where Iain will be able to consult with you face to face via web-cam.

Usually, our orthodox ‘face-to-face’ consults happen in the following way:

  1. A detailed case history is taken, an examination of the hair/scalp is performed,
  2. A preliminary diagnosis is reached.
  3. Diagnostic tests are required, such as Blood tests, or a period of using certain products to evaluate efficacy is needed to come to a specific diagnosis.
  4. A follow-up discussion is then needed re-diagnosis and prognosis.
  5. Monitor, discuss, follow-up, re-evaluate…and continue.

 

With an online consultation, it is slightly different;

  1. A detailed case history is taken, a preliminary examination is performed via webcam, I will be able to determine the general/potential issues which could be affecting the hair.
  2. A preliminary diagnosis is reached.
  3. Diagnostic tests are required such as Blood tests, or a period of using certain products to evaluate efficacy is discussed and implemented.
  4. A follow-up discussion, including the missing examination of the hair/scalp, is then performed and a diagnosis and prognosis reached together as the tests have already been implemented.
  5. Monitor, discuss, follow-up, re-evaluate …and continue.

After the online consultation, we may write to your GP for blood tests. However, in the present situation, I would not go to your GP unless necessary.

We can assess blood levels by using home testing kits which are inexpensive, accurate and quick.

After diagnostic tests are completed, we can talk again online, or you can opt to visit the clinic in person at a later date where I can then look at the hair/scalp and refine my pre-diagnosis as I will have all the information in front of me.

 

Fee structure:

The price of the online consultation is less (of course):

The cost of a online consultation is £75, if we need to see you face to face after this you will be charged the remainder of the usual consultation fee. (£125 for females & £95 for males).
