I just wanted to share my latest experience with Dr. Cole and his staff, especially for those who have not yet experienced a visit with Dr. Cole.
Just a quick history: This is my 4th HT procedure total. All procedures have been minor to medium in size as I'm keeping up with my hairloss over time, which is what is needed for me. After having a strip procedure done the first time with a local doctor in my area, I was so displeased by the scarring and damage to the back of my head that I never wanted to experience it again. This is how my search began for a new doctor and hopefully, a better technique. This is how I found Dr. Cole. After months of research, contact with several doctors and reviews, Dr. Cole, who not only is a very, very kind, amazingly intelligent and skillful man, he was the only doctor who made sense to me. From previewing his work many years ago, I noticed how his hairlines were much more natural looking than most other doctors' works I've seen. This was also the other really important part of the puzzle if you want true hair restoration.
My personal experience: After my procedures with Dr. Cole, I don't see any scars, bumps, or anything out of the ordinary. I don't shave my head. I usually keep my hair about 2 inches long on top, and much less on the sides and in back. No one has ever, ever suspected I had any work done nor saw any signs of it (outside of the small 3" strip scar I have from a different doctor -- but only a rare few see it but don't understand what it is). What a difference. My hair is important to me, not only in my personal life, but also my professional life as some branches of my life require I have the "look" in order to get in the door for opportunities.
I completed my third procedure with Dr. Cole after about five years since the previous procedure. It's amazing to see the evolution over the 8 year span I've visited Dr. Cole. His instruments are more refined and the best they've ever been and thus only add to his skill and efficiency in the procedure. Dr. Cole knows what he wants, what is required, and has taken all the steps to evolve his clinic, tools, and cover all the bases. I noticed how refined the procedure really was. What would take most doctors 8 hours to do, Dr. Cole did in 4 hours, and mind you, this is with the same precision, art and technique he's been refining for years that originally brought me to him.
As a patient, you have everything you need when you arrive. Dr. Cole and his staff are extremely friendly and have thought of everything to make sure your experience is comfortable, efficient, and caring. The time flew by during my last visit and I must say that it had everything to do with Dr. Cole and his great staff and all the amenities he had available for comfort.
I can't wait to see the results begin in a few months.
I hope this brief summary helps anyone considering Dr. Cole.
