Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I had the hair restoration with Dr. Bernstein when I was 57, having worn a hairpiece from the age of 26 (to cover a bad hair transplant when I was younger). Doing it the right way was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. To have spent all those years concerned about the wind, rain and the possibility of someone embarrassing me – which I must admit did happen on more than one occasion – now became a thing of the past.I am now able to play with my grandchildren, go swimming with them and have no fears of any embarrassment. The strange thing was the first day I walked into the golf club, having removed the wig, nobody made any mention of it at all, it does seem that other than immediate family, no-one takes too much notice of you.

Dr. Bernstein,

I would like to thank Dr. Bernstein and his staff for their care and quality service during my hair restoration procedures – due to their professional manner they made me feel quite at ease and confident.

You can’t imagine how happy I am with the hair transplant I had done at Bernstein Medical. For starters, I have a hairline again, and my hair (YES MY HAIR) at the crown has filled in nicely. By the way, the donor area suture healed without pain. How did you do that? Now I know it has to do with a staple process used in the hair transplant, but it is still relatively painless. Thank you again so much.

Hi Dr. Bernstein,

Well, it has been many years since my two hair transplants and the results are still unbelievable. I just returned from my dermatologist’s office and he couldn’t get over my transplant results particularly since they were done so many years ago. Touch up? Not yet, I still have everything you gave me!

Dr. B.

Like many, I watched for many years as my hair thinned. I heard about hair transplants, but thought it was an exotic procedure. Finally, I made up my mind to have something done. During the initial consultation with Dr. Bernstein I found him to be extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional. The day of my hair transplant procedure soon arrived and proved to be a pleasant experience. With Dr. Bernstein performing the procedure, a friendly and caring staff, a super lunch, and watching movies, the time passed quickly and before I knew it I was on my way home. I must honestly say there was no pain, no discomfort, and most of all it is impossible for anyone to tell that I had a hair transplant. I don’t know why I did not find Dr. Bernstein and have hair transplantation years ago.

E. Q.



Dear Dr. B,

I was very close to bald a few years ago. With your expert work, I now have a reasonably full head of hair. Many people tell me that I look years younger, even though they can’t tell that I had a hair transplant. Your work is so expert that even my own mother doesn’t realize that I have had hair restoration. I’m completely satisfied and would recommend you highly.

To Whom It May Concern,

I was referred by a friend who went through the hair restoration procedure and it was a year after for him and he was just happy at the results. This gave me the incentive to research more. Before, I had personally no need for a hair transplant as most of my family members are bald on the top anyway and you live with it. But for me it was different now as I had to represent myself as the designer for a high fashion line of jewelry and it was important to look well. One very important bit of advice was the need not to transplant on the current border of hair line above the forehead as it will not look natural for your age. Dr. Bernstein was very right there.

J. I.



To Whom It May Concern:

Prior to having my hair transplants with Dr. Bernstein, I had two earlier hair restoration procedures that did not look natural. My experience with Bernstein Medical was outstanding. Dr. Bernstein was extremely professional and congenial. He camouflaged the previous work and my results now look great and totally natural. I am really happy with it.

Best regards,
Q. I.



Dear Dr. Bernstein,

Choosing hair restoration surgery was easy, but choosing a hair transplant surgeon was not. I’m glad that I did my homework and I’m more than glad that I chose a very professional and detailed oriented person to perform my hair transplants. Both procedures went smoothly and your staff was exceptional in their support and kindness. I just celebrated my 50th birthday last month and certainly have other age related anxieties but hair loss is now not one of them. My hair looks great, natural and even though more of it is gray, all that it requires is a haircut once a month.

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

My wife and I want to thank you for the outstanding service and care you delivered to me during my recent visit. As you can imagine, the planning, researching and emotional tug-of-war that we went through prior to arriving at your doorstep was somewhat exhausting. But, but, but the good news is that we were very confident going into this venture and extremely pleased that I had it done by the very best of the best – Dr. Bernstein. We are very hopeful of its success and looking forward to the newfound freedom it will bring.

Again, thank you Dr. Bernstein and your wonderful staff for all your good work.

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I decided on having a hair restoration procedure because I was feeling more and more depressed about the hair loss I was seeing in the mirror. Having the procedure at Bernstein Medical was the smartest decision I ever made. I’m much more confident in my day to day business interactions with people and clients. It was amazing to watch and feel the hair growing in as I looked in the mirror day by day.

The staff was very friendly, cordial and couldn’t have been more accommodating the day of my hair transplant. It was a very satisfying and rewarding experience. I’d highly recommend Bernstein Medical because you are the best. Thanks for everything,

Dr. Bernstein,

I have had a terrific experience that is worth sharing with others who are considering a hair transplant.

It was easy for me to decide to have a hair transplant. I knew that I wanted to have my hair back and now I had to make sure that I picked the best doctor. Since I am very analytical in my job as an executive, it would follow that I would scrutinize and go through proper due diligence when selecting a skilled physician to handle this important procedure. I wasn’t about to settle for anything but the best work and I knew I wanted a top notch, experienced professional. I researched the entire US and Canada by reading various websites and from there gathered a short list of doctors. I made phone calls and ended up visiting 3 doctors that do hair restoration in the Boston, Providence and the NYC areas. One of those visits included an open house at Dr. Bernstein’s office in NYC. Here I met Dr. Bernstein and listened as he provided an overview of hair transplantation as well as alternative options to hair transplants. At that open house, I thoroughly reviewed numerous before and after pictures of his patients, and had the opportunity to see a transplant being performed as well as talking to a number of previous hair transplant clients that were willing to share their experiences with me.

I especially liked the fact that Dr. Bernstein clearly stated that surgical hair restoration is not for everybody. I knew immediately that this office didn’t feel like I was in a churn and burn factory-like environment that would simply take all prospective patients and reel them in. In an odd way, I liked the fact that I saw a professional providing advice and commentary that in a number of cases resulted in the patient recognizing that hair transplantation might not be right in their own circumstance. I liked the candor and honesty represented in this first meeting with Dr. Bernstein. I didn’t know how bad I wanted my hair back until Dr. Bernstein pointed out that I came into his office with a “comb over” and it was my way of really trying to cover my head and hide my baldness. During my consultation time, Dr. Bernstein took the time to listen to my entire personal history and understood my rationale for wanting new hair. From that review, I decided on Dr. Bernstein to perform my surgery. I liked his personality, his credentials in being recognized as one of the leaders in the world for hair transplantation, and most importantly, his artistic and technical skills as demonstrated by my direct interaction with prior clients attesting to their high satisfaction levels achieved.

I have had two hair transplant surgeries, October ’04 2213 FUT., and October ’07 1940 FUT. Both of the procedures went flawlessly and I never experienced any pain or swelling of any significance, and I was back to work immediately without anybody noticing anything. Dr. Bernstein’s seasoned staff of nurses and surgical assistants were excellent and performed their work in a pleasant professional manner and they seemed confident and well trained in their roles. For me, this support team represented a key component in ensuring a productive surgical outcome. Their friendly attitude and solicitous attention to my needs as a patient, made the time go by without me wanting or needing anything.

I am writing this for those of you that are apprehensive about this procedure. I can say that it has been one of the best things I have done in my life and my satisfaction level is VERY HIGH. Had I known that the procedure was going to result in such a positive outcome, I certainly would have done it sooner. I believe my initial research for a qualified physician paid off and hope that my story helps you through your process. I wish you fellow hair seekers much success.

Hi Dr. Bernstein,

It is now almost one year after my second procedure and I am thrilled. Although I realize the front of my scalp will never have the density it once did, I am no longer self-conscious whatsoever. I do not cringe when the wind blows my hair back. I don’t have to style my hair every single day to keep it looking full and puffy. I get so many compliments about how great my hair looks. I tell people I let my bangs grow out (which I have) but no one has a clue about the real change unless I’ve told them.

I am so grateful that as a woman I was even eligible for such a procedure. And I am especially grateful that I live so close to Bernstein Medical and that I can afford this luxury. Thank you, Dr. Bernstein, for making me smile again.

Dr. B,

Your friendly and supportive staff, and your own knowledge, kindness and sense of humor, along with your confirmation that I was indeed a candidate for a hair restoration procedure, finally gave me the courage to have the surgery. Now I never have to worry about having the sun shine on my head; I am able to style my hair any way I want to – the main objective is no longer to make sure it’s all combed back over my scalp in the hope of disguising my condition. Honestly, sometimes I have to remind myself that I once had this problem. Having my hair transplant in your office was one of the biggest favors I ever did for myself.

Thanks forever…
L. K.



The Staff at Bernstein Medical,

I decided to have a surgical hair restoration procedure because I like the prospect of having my OWN hair growing on my head instead of a weave or wigs. The idea of this fascinated me. After having the hair transplant procedure explained to me in-depth, I was amazed that it was not nearly as uncomfortable as I thought it might be. Swelling was minimal and I was able to return to work the next day. Having the procedure was one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself. Not only did it change my appearance but help booster self confidence. Now when I look in the mirror I like what I see.
