Dr. Bernstein,

I just want to thank you for doing such a great job on repairing my linear scar on the back of my head. You conducted two FUE’s on me, one 2009 and one in 2010. I sincerely appreciate your help and the change you’ve made in my life.

Dr. Bernstein and Staff,

I wanted to take an opportunity to thank you for the wonderful job that you have done in helping repair the poor transplant work that I received from another doctor. The skill that you and the entire staff exhibit can only be described as artistic. The “pluggy” look that I suffered with for years disappeared with the corrective procedure you performed, and I cannot wait for the 1,167 grafts I just received last week to begin growing. It was a miracle that I found such a reputable group to work with, and I only wish that every prospective patient who is even considering a hair transplant procedure have the opportunity to speak with you and your staff first hand. Your integrity is to be applauded. Best wishes and I look forward to talking to you in the future.

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I just thought I would drop you a line to let you know that everything is going just fine and healing very nicely.

The main reason I am writing it to express my appreciation to you and staff. Everyone made me feel very, very comfortable, considering what I was going through.

I knew I made the right decision on having you do my hair transplant after last Tuesday. I can hardly wait to see the end result. I look forward to seeing you and your staff in June.

Thanks you all very much!

Dear Dr. Bernstein & staff,

I appreciate each and everyone’s hard work during my procedure. You were all extremely professional, courteous, friendly, thoughtful and funny! I am looking forward to the “harvest”! Thank you!

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I had been losing my hair from the crown for 7 or 8 years when it started to fall out from the top and front as well. I could tolerate the crown loss as I couldn’t see it, but by the third year of top and front loss my fragile ego could no longer tolerate it. I set about searching the internet for information on hair transplants.

During my search I discovered follicular unit transplantation and Dr. Bernstein’s seminal research on the topic. I was very impressed with both. Shortly thereafter a business trip took me to New Jersey and I took advantage thereof to attend an open house at Dr. Bernstein’s office. The doctor’s open and honest approach to hair transplantation closed the deal for me and I arranged for my first session some 10 weeks later.

When the time for my session came, my wife and I flew out to New Jersey. We preceded my hair transplant session with a day in Manhattan. It was highlighted by an afternoon at Broadway’s presentation of The Lion King whose tickets we managed to get at the Times Square half-price booth. Our time in New York was worth the trip by itself.

My wife dropped me off at Dr. Bernstein’s New Jersey office the first thing the next morning. Upon entering the office I was provided with a uniform-of-the-day and shown to my “operating room”. I most remember the large comfortable chair and the T.V. which was made available for my viewing pleasure along with a wide selection of video tapes. Once I was seated the doctor came in and drew my new hair line. He then administered the local anesthetic which facilitated the painless removal of the donor hair strip from the back of my head. Then, while the follicular units were being harvested from the donor strip, he generated the first set of implant sites – kind of recalled my days of planting pine trees.

The follicular units were planted in the recipient sites which the doctor had prepared. I was left to occupy the time as I saw fit subject to the constraint of staying in the chair and keeping my head moderately still. This set of operations was repeated until around noon when my wife came in and we were given an opportunity to have a very nice lunch together in the “operating room,” courtesy of Dr. Bernstein.

Following lunch the routine was resumed until the some 2000 follicular units were successfully planted. This was accomplished by about 3 o’clock. We then spent an hour or so cleaning up and being given our post-operative care instructions. My wife then drove us to the hotel and following a night of modest discomfort – eased by the drugs provided upon our departure from Dr. Bernstein’s office – we flew back home.

I had scheduled the procedure at the beginning of a 2 week vacation. I had done such to provide sufficient time to recover from the hair transplant. This turned out to be unnecessary as there was very little negative residual affects from the procedure. However, it did provide time for the obvious physical appearance changes to recede and allowed me to cover those remaining with a comb over. Consequently, when I returned to work, none of my workmates ever mentioned noticing anything different about my appearance. During the following 6 months my transplanted hair went through its break in period and became at one with the hair which had preceded it. I was very glad that I had undertaken the hair restoration and that I had chosen Dr. Bernstein to make it happen.

Unfortunately, with the passage of time my original, non-transplanted hair continued to depart my company. Several years later I returned to New Jersey and Dr. Bernstein to counteract this impact of time. The 2nd transplant was pretty much a repeat of the 1st except for being a bit shorter owing to the need for fewer follicular units to be transplanted. By this time I was retired from work and had no worries about encountering any workmates. But it really didn’t matter as the 1st procedure provided me sufficient hair cover to venture forth bareheaded on the day following the hair transplant confident that no one could see anything different. Looking back, I am very satisfied with my decision to undergo hair transplantation and to have done it with Dr. Bernstein and his staff.

Hi Doc,

I was just looking through your website and felt compelled to write just to say hi and thanks for what you and your excellent staff have done for me. I had a procedure done a couple of years ago and it has changed my life for the better. I only have the highest of praise for you, your staff and the results achieved with only one procedure. I want to get a second one done but am a little afraid of using up the donor hair too soon. Maybe next year.

Thanks again,

P. B.



Dear Dr. Bernstein,

Almost a year after my initial consultation, I’m writing to express my appreciation to you and the staff for the excellent treatment I received during my procedure in November.

I was impressed by the professionalism and special care I was given by you and your staff during my procedure. I’d like to thank the staff there for making me feel much more comfortable than I had expected to be during surgery.

I am very pleased with the results. After only a couple of months, there was a noticeable difference. Now, nine months later, my hair looks so much better than when I first came to see you that it amazes me. I feel much better about myself.

Thanks again to everyone.


P. B.



Dr. Bernstein & Company:

I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how I am doing. I am eleven days post-op. My scabbing/crusting is totally gone. Tomorrow will be my first day back to work, and I have no concern that my procedure will be detected by my co-workers. I have examined my scalp in the mirror under bright lights and I cannot tell that I had anything done. I have a hard time keeping my hands off of my head and feeling the new growth up there. I know that more than likely they will shed and I will have to be patient for the re-growth to appear. I keep hoping that I will be one of the five percent who retains their implants, but will not be shocked it I am not.

I am thrilled with my decision to go ahead with my procedure, and am even more pleased that I chose you and your staff to do the work. You all made me feel very comfortable on a day that I thought would be very stressful. It was in fact an enjoyable day. Probably a small part of that was attributable to the drugs. But seriously, thanks again and I will be seeing you in ten months for an evaluation. Until then, hairs wishing you all the best (No that was not a spelling mistake, but an attempt at humor)!

Your biggest fan,

P. B.



Dr B. & Staff,

I decided to have the hair transplants because I used to wear a hair system. The maintenance was hard to keep up with. It limited my activities. There is nothing like your own growing hair. I decided to do my hair restoration with you, Dr. Bernstein, because you were the most honest and realistic out of all the hair transplant surgeons I met concerning the procedure.

Having a full head of hair has restored my confidence and has given me back my youth. My current girlfriend was shocked when I told her that I had hair transplants. The work that you and your staff do is undetectable. Before the first procedure I was very nervous. I did not know what to expect. Your and your staff made me feel comfortable by assuring me and allowing my friend who is a therapist to come in and relax me. I did not feel any discomfort throughout the hair transplant. There is discomfort after the procedure however the valium and the other medicines prescribed get you through it. I felt that this was well worth the experience because you cannot put a price on your confidence and your self-esteem.

Best wishes,
F. F.



Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I wanted to say a BIG thank you for the surgery last Friday. All is healing incredibly well and I’m feeling fine. Our banter during the procedure definitely moved things along at an incredible pace and I was truly amazed when I was finally told, “you’re ready to go”.

My gratitude to you and your staff is really quite impossible to describe in words, suffice to say that my relationship with you and the work that you have done for me has turned in to a life-changing experience.

I know you will continue to hold your position as world leaders in your field purely because of your consistent high standard of work, and more importantly, because of the absolute ethics you apply to that work. In an industry full of charlatans you truly stand out as a shining example of how a patient should be properly treated.

Please continue down the road you have set for yourselves and know that you have a dedicated advocate in myself.

I thank you once again… please also thank all of your gracious, wonderful staff!

With kind regards,

G. K.



Dr. Bernstein has my highest endorsement. I have been meaning to write. It is 7 months now and I am so happy. What a difference! Please let him know.

Everyone who knows things it looks amazing and absolutely natural. Those that don’t know just think I’ve got a head full of hair. Isn’t that nice. Best investment I ever made. Thank you.

M. G.



Congratulations to Dr. Bernstein.

Just a quick note to express how pleased that I am with the results of my first procedure. My hair is growing in nicely and I am scheduled for a second appointment this June. Thanks for the great service – Dr. Bernstein works miracles.

Best Regards,

B. A.



Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I wanted to thank you once again for the truly remarkable work you performed on the 3rd of January. As usual it was an extremely pleasurable experience and you and your staff went to great lengths to keep me comfortable, happy and amused.

When I reflect on my history (3 full surgeries and a mini plug-excision procedure) it is still awe-inspiring to look back at the original condition (both aesthetically and medically) of my hair/scalp and at the current condition. At the risk of sounding sycophantic you have performed, in my view, nothing short of a miracle and I do not use the phrase lightly when I say, “you have changed my life”. I know that you will continue on your path to supply hair transplant procedures of the highest quality and will also strive to maintain the absolute integrity and credibility that you have made part of your philosophy.

Hopefully, I have had my final surgery (until you can clone my hair!) but I do want to let you know how much I appreciate what you have done for me and that I will continue to support you whenever you need me.

I am enclosing a little something for you and all of your staff as a small token of my appreciation for all you’ve done.

With many thanks,
Best regards,

G. K.



Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I decided on having a hair transplant procedure because there is nothing better than having and maintaining your own growing hair, so having surgery was a no brainer for me. My personal experience with hair restoration surgery is that there is very little discomfort despite my initial concern.

I am an extremely impatient and anxious person so you would think that waiting for my hair to grow in would have been sheer torture. The time between my surgery and when I began to see my new hair passed so quickly that I barely remember ever waiting for something to happen. Before I knew it, my hair had grown in.

There is nothing like having that confidence that only a full head of hair can give you. A full head of hair is symbolic of youthfulness and virility as well as healthfulness and well-being. Although I have never had self-esteem issues, any boost to one’s self-confidence is a positive. I would definitely have further transplants if Dr Bernstein felt it was warranted.

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

This letter is to thank you and your staff for the care I received when I had my transplant performed at your facility on August 25.

I am amazed at how pain-free the procedure was and am extremely gratified by the results. Your placement of the grafts is amazing and I am extremely happy and pleased at how far 1,600 grafts can go.

I also would like to that all of your staff who were very competent, courteous and friendly at all times. It truly felt like I was with family during the entire procedure. Everyone showed that they really cared and were trying to provide me with the best possible result.

It was surprised that all of the little details that were described in your brochures were right on the money – even down to the lunch and ice cream sundae!

I would highly recommend your facility to anyone!

Sincerely yours,

M. R.
