Need to see a dermatologist? Here's how to save on your visit:
- Check your health insurance - dermatology may be one of the services that are covered. Check to see if you'll need to only pay a co-pay, or if you will need to pay more up-front. You may need to get a referral from your primary care physician.
- Check out over-the counter skin products before you get those prescribed by a physician. You may find a product that works for you, and is a lot cheaper. There may even be coupons available for your products, and if you watch for a sale, you can save lots!
- Do your homework. Ask friends and family for advice on finding the right dermatologist. Don't forget to search on the Internet - search for "brachytherapy dermatologist " if that's what you're looking for, for instance. But be sure to call the dermatologists you find and ask about their services and costs.
