Leaking (dripping) from patio sliding door

This morning saw water leaking(dripping) from inside the top of our patio sliding door frame. Is the flashing problem? who should we call for it (siding people)? Any advice and suggestion will be greatly appreciated!

It’s super unlikely this is coming from the door based on where you say it’s coming from. Need some pics from the outside but it’s more likely roof.

Check the flashing all around the top of the door (where the flashing meets the house AND where it meets the door) and re-caulk really well it using an exterior grade window and door caulking. If it still leaks after that, its coming from your roof or a crack in the bricks/siding somewhere
