    Assessment of Vitiligo Patients’ Perceptions and Opinions About Their Dermatologists When They Were First Diagnosed

  • Abstract Take Home Message

    Understanding the firsthand experience of patients with vitiligo and how they perceived their first dermatologist encounter is key to improving the patient-physician relationship and properly addressing their unique concerns. Preliminary results so far indicate patient desire for more in-depth explanations of their diagnosis, as well as the need for a greater demonstration of compassion and empathy regarding the emotional impact of vitiligo.
