To this day unfortunately there are many doctors who simply do not have an understanding of hyperhidrosis. Overall lack of knowledge about this subject is still very common within the general medical society. It is slowly becoming more acknowledged by physicians but if a response from a physician to the patient is lacking you can refer them (the doctor) to this site and links to all the in depth information provided including the various papers written by Dr. Reisfeld in respected peer reviewed medical journals. Dr. Reisfeld is also happy to speak with any physician about it.
