In brief: Primary doctor first

A person who is losing hair can see his primary care doctor first.
After an evaluation, the primary doctor may refer the person to an endocrinologist if there are signs of a hormonal problem (which tends to increase or decrease hair evenly, with the hair and skin not looking diseased); or to a dermatologist if the hair loss is uneven, or if there are signs of infection or inflammation in the skin.
