The doc is inBeen really busy. Very happy w/ the results thus far. Please let Dr Cole know that I am greatly appreciative of what he has done for me. There was a period of time when I thought that my life was practically ruined thanks to previous doctors. I couldn't leave the house- not w/o a hat. I felt helpless and pissed off. I look and feel completely normal again! no more hats. I don't think that my patients, my family, or anyone else can tell that I have a HT. I have only the highest opinion of Dr Cole and his work is truly grateful. God Bless him. I look forward to sending photos soon.

My recovery is going exceptionally well. I am following the recovery instructions to the T. By the end of day 5, 70% of my scabs fell off. By the end of day 6, 95% of scabs are off. I have not had any shedding and the HT have doubled or tripled in length since surgery. I really didn't expect that. My hairline looks very natural and you cannot tell the hairs were transplanted. I am still waiting for my scabs to fall off in the donor area and the remaining hair to grow to add coverage. Another 4-5 days and you won't be able to notice anything was done. ***. I look a few years younger already.
Please thank Dr. Cole. They were awesome. The staff were great also. If I need to come back in a year or so for more work, I will not hesitate to do it again.
Talk with you soon and thanks for everything.
For the first time since 1973 I am free
Posted by EH For the first time since 1973 I am plug free...I can't thank you enough!! I just want you to know that I just came from my Doctor to have the stitches removed and he was amazed with the quality of the work. Dr. Cole, you advised me on Friday that I may be red in the removal area for a while,but as of right now some areas of removal have almost totally healed. My Doctor said I was hardly red at all. As of today I would say a third are pink,and some just look like small red dots not detectable at all with the way I wear my hair. Overall the skin around the removal site is normal color. This only four days post!! Again many thanks for the dedication and support . The only negative of the entire experience was how sore my ass got from sitting in the chair. Next time in Atlanta I will stop to show you the results,and I will also try to send some pictures by the end of the week. All the best, EH
My experienceHi Michelle, so far so good. Today is the 1 week mark, and the scabs are slowly coming off, and the religious use of the Biotin spray from haircycle.com appears to have reduced the redness to nil. The donor area is growing out nicely, and there's no pain or discomfort at all. Come to think of it I didn't have any post-op pain or swelling.
Dr. Cole's a pro's pro at this business, and I know I made the right choice by choosing him. It made for a nice little vacation from my business, and the Residence Inn provided a relaxing place to hang out. You're a nice group of folks, and if I'm back in the area I'll stop by to say Hi, whether I have another session or not.

Hi, in case I enhance my well deserved reputation as a wind bag (going on a bit) I will keep this post short. I have just got back to the UK after another wonderful experience at Cole's clinic.
This time I was aiming to fill in my hairline with another strip of aprox 1000 grafts, but I think the final count was a good deal more than that.
I am just 12 days post ht now and my donor area is fine, my stiches are falling out, I can sleep on the donor site, and my hairline has looked fine for about a week, you guys are just so good.
In addition to the expected delights, of Dr Cole et al, I also got to go for an extra sandwich (in addition to my grinder!) with some of the team after work. Just to give any readers an example of how great these guys are hairtec not only got me a natty little bandana to wear to the cafe, but offered to wear one himself to deflect attention from me while we were out.
I think the world of all you guys, thanks again for a great trip.
"WRF" E-mail testimonial (experience)Email Testimonial: Attention John Cole, MD During the past three days it was my privilege to be your patient at the IHTI where I received outstanding restorative hair care from you and your surgical team. I know that you are well aware of the superb skills of your specialty and support staff. However, please permit the following comments based upon personal observation. From the beginning of my referral and initial telephone contact with IHTI, it was evident that the physicians were supported by a dedicated and enthusiastic staff. During my first visit it became apparent that the cohesiveness of your group was in large measure due to your demonstrated professionalism and dedicated efforts as a leader and mentor. Your superior surgical skills were enhanced by your sensitivity to individual patient needs. Your entire staff demonstrated a similar rare sensitivity to my total needs. I would like to recognize each one and will look forward to receiving the correct spelling of names, as per our conversation. Many laudable statements may be made concerning the traits of those with whom I had contact. Compassionate, kindnesses, consideration, social and cultural awareness of the needs of patients, a great sense of humor are but some of them. I am very appreciative of your dedicated efforts. You are very fortunate to have so many fine individuals on you staff. Let me take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks and deep appreciation for the outstanding professional services rendered to me and to wish you continued successes in your research and treatment endeavors. I hope I have sufficient scalp donor follicles to restore the hairline. If the esthetics of the body hair is pleasing, I should have adequate donor reserves. I am doing exceptionally well and hope to see you again. Doc, enough said! Your achievements genuinely place you among the elite of the profession! My personal wish and prayer for each of you is that the many kindnesses shown to me will be returned to you a thousand-fold. WRF
Benny's testimonial-quoted from e-mail
Thanks for the newsletter. It's Benny, the complementary repair case from October 2003. Happy New Year to all there too.
I'm back at university thanks to the big improvement in my appearance from the surgery. I just got my first semester in 10 years' results back. 3 A+'s and 2 A's. Not too bad after my 10 year layoff. :0) I'm studying for a Geography degree. I am interested in Demographic/Urban/Economic Geography issues with some Environmental aspects as well. I plan on using Computer Mapping and GIS skills I'm learning to have an interesting career. Thanks for helping me make this possible.
Thanks again. It seems like such a long time ago I was down there in Atlanta. I'd love some of that warm weather. Here it's -40C lately and I think that's about the same in Farenheit when it's that cold. Brrrrr.
I'm not very involved at all in online forums anymore. I find it too upsetting and anxiety causing. And with my studies I have to spend alot of time doing schoolwork. I do a lot of studying, and it's nice to see it paid off my first semester back with the A's and A+'s.
Say hi to everyone for me. Good luck spreading the word on FIT. And have there been any good "chair parties" lately?
BTW, why the Finnish on your Christmas Card? I love it. I was an exchange student in Finland in '92-'93. Mina olin vaihto-oppilas. Kuka on Suomalainen Atlantassa? Mina unohdan liian paljon suomea. Hyva Jolua ja Onnalista Uuden Vuotta!
Thank you again for helping me get my life back.
Luckoftheirish in the NY seminar
Dr. Cole and Forhair,
It was truly a pleasure to get to speak with you gentleman with weekend. The seminar was very interesting to me and certainly worth the bus ride from Boston.
Over the past couple of months I have been getting increasingly upset and depressed about my hairloss. Seeking help from HT "doctors" made it a lot worse because they all said I had average hair and that I should get surgery. Some things that Dr. Leonard said to me were particularly upsetting (he even discouraged me from shaving my head. What a jerk, I'm 24.). I suppose I knew that I was being lied to but when a person is worried about hair they tend to internalized these types of comments. My buttons were being pushed and it did mentally hurt me for sure.
My point is I feel a lot better about my situation after speaking with both of you. I truly do. I think I like doctors who employ densometers and logic in consultation - instead of just salesman and boobery. Thank you for respecting my intelligence and being honest and concerned etc (man, you guys are funny too). At last, I feel as though my hair is a manageable problem. When it becomes unmanageable I believe I know who to call. I'll be saving my paper route money until that day (and harassing Pat Hennessy).
Forhair, your hair looks very good and undetectable.
Dr Cole, you are like a cat, nobody knows where you've have been.
Thanks you for your help guys, I feel a lot better.Sincerely,
"TK" testimonial by email
What a journey! I read and read as everyone shared there opinions. Spoke to the 4 Doctors. Read all the positive and horror stories. And finally jumped in. 1200 in the front in one day. Probably not enough I thought, but I was a little nervous. 1 month later around 800 in the rear.
Dr Cole was fantastic in every way. Now that it worked, and I like the results. My view of Dr Cole has gone up again.
I want more but I feel like the rush is off, I'm happy. I'm watching to see what's next, how's my hair holding up. Will my hair loss stabilize? etc.
I have plenty of donor hair left so I feel good about having hope for the future. There are things that are more important to me than my hair. But WOW it has lifted my self esteem. Made a bigger difference in my life than I thought.
Thanks for all the help, and I'm glad I could give back in some way.
Arfy always seemed to have some really good information and advice.
Of course I want more more more. But $$$ is always an issue, and as I said earlier I want to see where things are going for me and the industry. I hope in the next 6-12 months to make my next decision.
I try to check in once a week to see what's up, but I think its true if you get great results (I feel there great) you seem to just move on.
I hope my hair stays, hairloss stops, and a magic pill is invented to grow hair :)
FUE without shaving the headI arrived home safely and it is hard to put into words how thrilled I am with the work! I have no idea how many we did, but I know with all the repair work it certainly turned into a longer day than anticipated and I want to make sure you feel fairly compensated. I also want to send Patrick and Nelson something for all their extra time so they don't mutiny on you. I don't know if doing the CIT without completly shaving the donor area is something that you now do routinely or if that was just something you are experimenting with , but it is remarkable to think that in four days when I take out the stitches, there will basically be no trace that I had anything done! lowering the cost of CIT it probably doesn't help you any but I am ecstatic about it. It is the world's fist truly undetectable transplant! The worst part of an CIT procedure for me in the past was always the "regrowth" period when you had to camouflage with Topic or Couvre. This completely eliminates that!! Again, I am thrilled. Thank for your great work, compassion and attention to detail that no other doctor can match. Talk to you soon...
