“Coaches Corner” – Physician Communication
While you are seeing a qualified dermatologist who is treating you for your Pemphigus Vulgaris, Bullous Pemphigoid, Pemphigus Foliaceus, Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid, etc. you might also be seeing your own dentist, OB/GYN, internist, ophthalmologist or ear/nose/throat specialist.
Please be sure that all of your doctors are aware of your condition and that they have access to your dermatologist. It is important that they know the medications and dosage that you are taking for each medication.
All of your doctors need to be able to communicate with one another if necessary. Being left in the dark will leave you at a disadvantage. Also, if you are going to be scheduled for any major dental work, advise your dermatologist. Depending on the procedure, your medications may be adjusted for a few days prior and a few days following to prevent any flare-ups.
Remember when you need us we are in your corner!
