In brief: Depends on cause...

One's primary care doctor can check for medical causes.
If none are found, then one can see a dermatologist, especially one specializing in hair restoration (some treatments: minoxidil, hair transplants, etc...). Medical causes may include: hormonal problems (low thyroid), seborrhea, alopecia areata, stressful illnesses. Other causes: genetic male/female pattern baldness, telogen effluvium, etc...
