Consultations are strictly by appointment only. For Expert Witness work, they must be booked through the instructing solicitor. Patients seeking diagnosis and treatment can book directly with ARC Trichology, through our contact form, via email or the telephone.
We will make every effort to respond to all requests for an appointment for consultation within two working days of receipt. Our scale of charges is available upon request.
A consultation for litigation purposes may take up to two hours. This will consist of taking a detailed account of the case history and a visual examination of the Claimant. Samples of any damaged hair may be taken when relevant for microscopic examination. Micro and macro photographic evidence of the Claimant's injuries may also be taken if appropriate.
A consultation for any other trichological service will take approximately one hour. This will consist of taking a detailed account of the patients medical history, family history, diet and relevant lifestyle, prescription and non-prescription medication. Thorough examination of the hair and scalp will take place and samples may be taken for microscopic evaluation where necessary. Macro and micro imaging will be used to assist diagnosis and record progress where appropriate. A diagnosis will be reached and a prognosis given to the patient. Referrals to the patients GP for further investigation may be necessary.
Ms York is licensed to manufacture and/or prescribe medicaments for the patient's home use and appropriate advice will be given at consultation should treatment be relevant.

Advice on issues such as wigs, scalp surgery, hair removal, hair transplants, etc will be given where deemed appropriate.
