    Re: What kind of doctors do treat hair fall?

    Neither. "Hair fall" isn't a thing.

    What sort/kind of doctors treat hair loss?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    What kind of doctors do treat hair loss?

    That emphatic use of DO would be correct only in a context such as this:

    Bill: Do proctologists treat hair loss?
    Ben: No.
    Bill: Do gynaecologists treat hair loss?
    Ben: No.
    Bill: Do urologists treat hair loss?
    Ben: No
    Bill: What kind of doctors do treat hair loss?

    When we use what, when, how etc as a question, do we not ask it with verb before noun format? Eg .Did he come? When did we come? How did he come? Which route did he use to come?

    Is it different if we start with "What kind"?

    What kind of government is there in China? The expected answer is communist or democratic.

    When the interrogative word or phrase is the subject of the verb, we use normal affirmative word order.

    For the benefit of those who don't know the answer: a trichologist.

    I'm now wondering whether you have a trichologist, Rover, and what his or her name might be?

    I will be very grateful if you can give few example sentences.

    What kind of government is there in China? Is this sentence wrong? I can't see any other possible way of question.
