Your Doctor Works For You

Written by Joe Tillman on February 13, 2008

We’re the best! This is something that you will read or hear from just about every hair transplant clinic in existence. Why else would you choose them if they are somehow less than the best, right? So the problem becomes one of figuring out if the hair transplant clinic you are interviewing is actually “the best” for you. Here’s how to do it.

First, notice that in the paragraph above I mentioned an interview. What does an interview have to do with picking a hair transplant clinic? It’s pretty simple really. You are hiring a clinic to do a job for you, in this case, restoring your hair. They are working for you so it is up to you to make sure you are “hiring” the best clinic for the job.

The chance of any doctor that you are speaking with having actually performed hair transplant surgery on an “A list” actor or celebrity is pretty small unless that doctor is in the Beverly Hills or greater Los Angeles area. Now, this is not to say that they absolutely, without a shadow of a doubt, are lying but the chances that YOUR doctor worked on a big name celebrity are slim. Read more
