Your Doctor Works For You

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. Think of the hair transplant clinic (s) you are considering as contractors that you want to build a house. You want to make sure you are dealing with a contractor that has quality employees to consistently build great houses.

The materials they use obviously need to be of the highest caliber and in this case the materials are your hair. They also have to use the best tools of the trade and must be proficient with them. Learn what tools the doctor and staff use and find out the benefits of those tools and how they will serve you best. Why do they use those tools and why are they better than other tools you may learn about.

Ask your doctor if you can have a look at their references. In this case the references are the patients and you should be able to come away from your doctor’s office with a list of patients that have agreed to comment on their experience and maybe even meet with you in person. If you are considering a clinic that is out of your local area then you may have to travel a bit but a one or two hour drive is definitely worth it when you are making a life altering and permanent decision.

Finally, you should be able to see dozens of examples of the clinic’s past work and this would be in the form of documented before and after photos and/or videos. The clinic you are considering should have, in my opinion, no less than fifty examples to share. This will help to establish a record of consistency when combined with meeting patients in person.

Remember, the doctor and clinic you choose is working FOR YOU, not the other way around. You owe them nothing and if something doesn’t seem right then you should step back and consider your decision. There is nothing wrong with getting the jitters before a surgery. I did and so does everyone else but if you have questions that are unanswered before a surgery do not get in the chair until those questions are answered to your satisfaction. If and when each of my suggestions are met and you actually feel good about your decision then you can start building your house.
