They do not believe me
Dear Dr. Cole
I searched all over the Southeast for the best hair transplant available. After meeting with many Doctors and patients, we made a decision that I have never regretted. Dr. John Cole and the team at The Cole Hair Transplant Group were the best I have ever seen. I was treated with the highest of respect and in a very professional way.
I have been pleased with the surgery for many years now. When I get a hair cut and tell the stylist that I had transplant hair replacement - they do not believe me. It is the most professional transplant available anywhere that I have ever seen. I have seen some pretty horrible jobs from other Doctors who do transplants.
I know you will be very pleased with the work of Dr. Cole and his staff. If I can assist you in any way, Please do not hesitate to contact me again.
God bless you and I wish you the very best.
I am including a couple recent pictures with a full head of hair! You can have it too!

My Hair is Coming in Really Well!
Hey everyone! Can't wait to see you guys this coming Saturday. My hair is coming in really well. So far, as I expected, I am very pleased. I am constantly looking in the mirror, and in doing so, find myself in awe of the work you guys performed. I love you guys! Dr. Cole and staff are top notch! I had a wedding reception to go to this past weekend and one guy made the comment, " Yeah, some guys go bald, some guys go gray . . . looks like you don't have to worry about either." I can't begin to tell you how good that made me feel. I had my hair cut before the reception and my barber said my transplant was incredible. He wanted to know where my scar was! He couldn't find one. He said that he would like some business cards to handout to clients. More business for you = more business for him! I know I still have a lot more growth to come so I'm totally stoked to see the end result. Thank you guys for doing such a good job and I look forward to my future procedure (hopefully, my last). Kids are expensive!
Results Are Truly Fantastic!
I wanted to give you an up-date now that the procedure has had the benefit of 6 months. I have to say that the results are truly fantastic! After the initial problem of some hair loss, seemingly overnight the hair started to grow in. This has been the best procedure i have had and although it is the largest procedure i have had to date, the yield is truly amazing. To say that am delighted with the results would be an understatement! I don't know whether the sample of the new process helped create better results. Whatever may be the case, you're a maestro and i'm a happy customer! Sincere thanks to you and your team! This has really worked.
Thank You for the Hard Work
Dr. Cole and team,
Thank you for the hard work, the focus and attention to detail that you and your team displayed last week during my surgery. Your work has already begun to erase much of my anxiety. I realize that you are a talented Doctor and that you expect the best from your assistants. That combination of talent and dependability makes a huge difference. Also, your advice and your honesty made me comfortable. I knew after we discussed my options that I made the right decision to have you correct a mistake another Doc made in the past on my hairline. I would highly recommend anyone who has hairline issues from a past surgery to consult and to work with you and your team.Thank You,
I Am the Italian Patient
I am the italian patient, sorry if I did not write before, but I'm a bit shy and I'm not very familiar with forums.
My first comment is to say publicly thanks to dr. Cole and his wonderful staff for the great work they did on my head The operations really changed my mind and my life, and, after many years of hair-losing, I could finally live a long period of hair-growing in places where before there was just the desert!
What can I say more? Results are very natural, I had a very light and no problematical post-op, hair and bht are still growing. I'm completely satisfied. Thats all.
Sorry for my poor english. If there are questions, I'd be glad to try to answer. Ciao a tutti!

4 Years Ago
Hi Dr. Cole, hope all is well. It has been some time since I checked in with you, and I wanted to pass on some impressions of my progress.
The good news is that things continue to improve up there on the 'ol head. I just came from a professional conference, and I hadn't seen some of my colleagues for some years, and also met many new people. The new people I met didn't seem to notice anything about my head (the dreaded stare at one's pluggy scalp I was so accustomed to). That was a good experience.
More often than not, however, people commented on how "healthy" I looked, especially people who hadn't seen me for some time. They said that couldn't quite put their finger on it, but that I looked "younger" than they had seen me . . . I pointed out that I have more grey hair than I did years ago, so how could I look younger? This seemed to puzzle people, and many just said that they couldn't quite figure it out, just that I looked strong, good, and healthy. Not too bad, huh?
I presented an academic paper before 500 or so people one of my last days at the conference, and while this was something that I would have avoided like the plague for the past 7 or so years (as the plugs became more and more obvious), it was a breeze and I enjoyed it. One person asked if I had taken a public speaking course or something. Of course I didn't tell them that it was as simple as getting some of my confidence back after shattering it with my bad decision to go to Bosley inc. all those years ago. Thus, in a way, with the boost provided by removing the plugs, I am simply starting to remember "who I am", rather than continuing to allow myself to be the insecure person I had become, due to the bad HTs.
In reference to my noggin, things continue to improve. Growth in the linear scars continues, I can shave down to a number 4 now in back without much showing, and this is a major improvement. The front is also looking good, I can style it with much less evidence of bad HTs. There are about 5 or so plugs that are still visible, and two areas of the hairline that while not pluggy, are still a bit "patchy" (the very front, to the right) and the left temple. Under bright neon lights, I have seen a wandering eye or two as well. However, I know that for my type of repair, 7 months out is not the end of the story, and thus I continue to hope for additional improvement.
Again, thanks for the extra mile you worked on my head, it has really made a difference.
My experience at the Cole clinic was *** amazing. I was there for about 3 days or so back in October of 2005. It was almost like a dream; it was a dream, really. I was a little nervous a first obviously because this was my first time but just looking ahead at what was to be really gave me the courage to go through with the surgery, and at the end, it turned out better than I expected.
It's been about 7 months now since the surgery and I am so satisfied and this is just the beginning. I really miss Alpharatta and everyone at IHTI and can't go back and visit them all. The experience was more than a life changing experience for me because I met so many great people there at the clinic that really care about you and your well being. My life has changed now. I don't worry about hairloss anymore, it's the other things like traffic, work, etc, but when I look back at the way my life was and the way I felt when I was losing my hair, these things are really mundane. I feel as though as long as you feel good about yourself, you'll view the world in a more positive way. This does not mean that everyone should go out and get a transplant; it's not for everyone, actually. Some people might be satisfied with the way they look even if they're losing their hair. However, some people look in the mirror who are losing their hair and don't really want to look different, but want to look the way they did when they had hair. Thanks Dr. Cole and the team.
This journey has been one of the greatest experiences of my life!
My overall experience with the procedure was outstanding. I've been going for about 10 years now and have had 4 procedures. (I started when my hairloss was minimal at 26 years old.) I opted for a few small procedures at first (300-400 grafts) and then a few bigger ones (1200 grafts). I really didn't "need" the most recent one. I was kind of getting greedy because the results are so good. Nobody can tell that I have had the procedure. Its very natural. Sometimes people say that I look good or that I've lost weight. Occasionally, they will ask if I've been using a new hair product. Those are only people who have known me a long time and see me infrequently. As for the results, yes, I got the expected results and then some. I am often mistaken for being in my late 20's. (I'm 37 next month). It takes about 8 or 9 months for new hair to start to show (after your surgery). After a year, it will be all grown out. You will look in the mirror and notice a difference one day and realize it worked. As for the overall time it takes, I could have stopped at the second procedure (total 900 grafts), because my original goal was to not look (balding). I was still thin in a few areas and wanted to go for it, so I had the big ones done as well. If you want to accelerate it, you could always do big procedures close together. I'm just more likely to take baby steps. I'm obviously a big fan of Dr. Cole's work. I wouldn't let anyone else work on me. I'm lucky I found him! If you have any other questions, just email me back. Good luck! Andy
I would just like to give you a quick follow up on my procedure yesterday and Tuesday. I will send back your survey form to you in the near future.
I would like to say that I am extremely impressed by the high quality of service that I received. Everyone that I dealt with was very corteous and professional.
Dr Cole is everything that I heard he was. In my opinion, the best FIT/FUE doctor there is. His attention to detail is most impressive. He definitely exceeded my expectations. And I really like the new hairline he gave me!Thanks to all for a great experience. Chuck
A Surreal Experience
Dear Dr Cole,
I've been balding since I was 19, now 50, so I know how to maintain. My younger brother who looks like my twin is a Norwood 7, donor is thin too, told him a HT is not an option. He never used anything to maintain, didn't believe in it. Been slicking my hair back lately so people at work have been calling me Pat Riley, getting many compliments on how much I've grown. This past Friday 5 guys inspected my scalp in my office because someone mentioned that I went to Atlanta and there's a good HT doctor down there that's my I have so much more hair. They finally concluded it's way too natural to be a transplant, must be the propecia and minoxidil foam, good work!!!
Anyway just got into a relationship with a beautiful woman. Thanks Again.
