The more details you can share with your dermatologist, the better he or she can understand your hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) symptoms and how they’re impacting you.
Knowing what questions you’d like to ask and openly sharing details about your symptoms can help you and your doctor choose the treatment that’s right for you.
To get you prepared for a productive conversation with your dermatologist, we have created a convenient conversation guide. Print it out, answer the questions, and bring it with you to your next appointment.
It will be helpful to know more about his or her experience in treating HS. Here are some suggested questions.
These questions, along with your responses on the Doctor Conversation Starter, can help to ensure that you and your dermatologist are on the same page before you begin treatment.
