Hair Disorders

The Duke Hair Disorders Clinic is under the direction of Dr. Elise Olsen, immediate past President of the North American Hair Research Society and author of the textbook Hair Disorders: Diagnosis and Treatment.
Patients with hair loss or hair overgrowth disorders that are physician-referred will be evaluated and a diagnosis and treatment plan developed.
All patients are evaluated with a complete history, physical examination, and, if necessary, laboratory studies.
Evaluation often involves scalp biopsy and microscopic examination of the involved hairs.
To refer a patient to Dr. Olsen, please fill out the New Patient Referral form.
