Surgical Hair Restoration: What to Look for in a Surgeon
4. Contact your state medical board to see if any complaints have
been filed against the hair transplant doctor or hair transplant group.
5. During your initial consultation, be sure to meet with the hair
transplant doctor who will be performing your surgery. If your hair transplant
doctor is not available, leave immediately and do not have a hair transplant
performed by that hair transplant physician or hair transplant group. If you
meet with a "medical consultant" remember the following:
a. The consultant should be there to provide you with basic
information on the hair transplant procedure.
b. He or she is most likely not a medical professional and should not
provide you with specific medical or surgical recommendations.
c. Consultants do have their place in this field, but cannot replace a
consultation with a medical professional.
6. Is your hair transplant doctor's practice dedicated solely to
surgical hair restoration? If not, what percentage of his/her practice is?
