I received what appears to be a random email from an executive recruiter at a firm in NY. She has a client but can not disclose who it is at this time ( ie. Non disclosure agreement ).

Serious question: Men, those seeking a medical opinion from a Dermatologist for hair loss, would you consult with a Dermatologist if he himself was bald?
