Hello I’m curious if this establishment accepts Florida blue insurance, also I am curious if you guys help treat hair pattern baldness and help with hair regrowth

Thank you for your question. I have run your question by our office manager, who tells me that we accept most Florida Blue plans. However, she would need to see or have you provide details from your insurance card to know for sure if we take your specific plan. And yes, we diagnose and treat all forms of hair loss or alopecia. Please contact our office number 865-450-9361 if you would like to schedule an appointment to discuss this further. You can ask specifically for our office manager to address your question regarding insurance.

My wife says: “My hair is falling out by the handful. It’s breaking off and it hurts to brush and it tangles up.” She’s went to her doctor and he says maybe she needs an anti-depressant. She was quick to decline that. (Doesn’t need it in my opinion either) She has stopped taking birth control for a month now in hopes of us having a baby. She eats healthy and exercises. She also has thyroid issues. Her Thyroid doctor says the numbers look fine though. She takes meds for that. I believe the thyroid has caused some hair issues in the past. She also has been using hair growth formula from the drug store for years. What could cause this and What type of doctor would be best?? This is a major deal for her.

My 5 year old daughter has about 10 warts on her fingers, and they will NOT go away. We’ve tried having the largest ones frozen at her pediatrician’s office and using the highest strength OTC medication you can buy, but they keep coming back. They are spreading even more now, and I am wondering what the best thing to do to get rid of them would be? They have been there since before August. Thanks.

My armpits sweat all day long. Soaking through my shirt, and the sweater I wear. It doesn’t matter if I have a jacket on or just a T-shirt. within 3 hours after getting my day started my shirt is already soaked. I have tried scrubbing them and reapplying deodorant multiple times a day, and it doesn’t help anything. I need to get this fixed ASAP, as I have already ruined several shirts because of it.
