Its a she.

You may be able to get an appointment without a referal. Just call up and ask the secretary any questions.

I did get a referal from my doctor though.

She will give you accutane if you need it and ask nicely I guess.

You will have to have tried antibiotics and prescription topicals before going on accutane.

Its the only derm I've ever had, so I dunno if you would consider that a long wait or not.

---Actually its been quite a long time since my initial visit so I don't recall how long u have to wait if you're new.

I still think it will be among the shortest waits you can find.

awesome.

I have tried everything topical and one kind of antiobiotic pill, will the derm consider accutane in your opinion?

I expect she will make you try 1 more antibiotic before giving out accutane, you can always try asking though. She will also prescribe a topical if she gives a different antibiotic.

any idea for the reasoning behind this?

I'm leaving for the army in the summer and have to be off all meds by then..

if you have to be off meds by then you also would not be able to take accutane.. an accutane course lasts 6 months

Stopping short may make things worse.

Accutane is dangerous and is only prescribed unless they are sure nothing else works.

Thanks.

I was told that not all accutane courses are six months, and can be as low as 3... Oh and by summer, I mean august.
