Dear Dr. Bernstein,

This is an overdue thank you for the work you have done for me. Dealing with hair loss is a very private issue, especially when you are a woman dealing with the public. I found that people were always drawn to my receding hairline, rather than looking directly at my eyes. The impact of one hair transplant has remarkably changed this. Your expertise in placing the transplanted hair and creating a new hairline is remarkable. My hair loss is no longer a secret. You helped resolve this for me, and I am very grateful.

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I want to thank you for taking the time to see me for my consultation in early December. It was a very informative meeting. I have been interested in having a hair transplantation performed for many years, but I have hesitated for many reasons. Finding the right doctor who performs the right procedure has been difficult. I believe that the follicular unit transplantation procedure performed by you would be my best choice. Certainly, I have heard many good things about you, and I congratulate you on the reputation you have established. As a physician, I know that this type of reputation comes only with hard work, superior skill and unquestionable expertise. Unfortunately, only a handful of doctors ever achieve this level.

I will likely schedule my surgery for some time next year. In the meantime, I will continue to use Propecia.

I hope that the holiday season has been a safe and happy one for you and your loved ones. I look forward to seeing you in the OR.

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I am writing to let you know what a pleasant experience I had with my surgery. I wanted to thank you and your wonderful staff for their attention, professionalism and work ethics. They were not only impressive but also therapeutic for a nervous client such as myself. Thanks again for a job well done. I would tip my hat to you, but I WILL NOT BE WEARING ONE EVER AGAIN!

Dr. Bernstein,

In a day and age when kindness is thinning out faster than my hair, I wanted to thank you for your kindness in seeing me and providing the prescription for Proscar on the spot, just like that.

Thank you and see you in a year!

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.



Dear Dr. Bernstein and staff:

Just wanted to thank you for all that you did before, during and after my hair transplant procedure. You were all true professionals, from my first interview, to my follow up visit.

Dr. Bernstein, your knowledge and confidence in your procedure were the catalyst for me deciding to have my transplant done in your office. Your staff was patient, kind, humorous, and their teamwork was incredible. At all times, they maintained a professional attitude, and they never made me feel like I was just next in line. Although I was nervous at first, I soon felt that I had made a good choice. Thanks again.

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

Ever since I was diagnosed in 1987 with hereditary hair loss and advised that I was a candidate for hair transplantation, I knew that “someday” I would undergo the procedure. Over the years, my hair loss became noticeable (and not just to me, as it probably was in 1987) and in 2001 I visited your website, and then your office for a free consultation. 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.

Well, the most stressful part of the day of surgery was my worry that the taxi would not show up to take me from Manhattan to Fort Lee where I planned to have the hair restoration procedure! Once I arrived, your wonderful staff put me at ease and the only pain I experienced all day was a slight pinprick sensation when the local anesthetic was given to me. The pleasant haze I was in during the procedure, along with the conversation and banter I enjoyed with you and your staff, made the whole experience almost enjoyable! I went home and relaxed for a few days in pleasant anticipation of the good results I knew would follow.

For several months I made myself forget about constantly running to the mirror, and about 10 months later I noticed a definite improvement in the fullness of my hair in the front. After about 18 months, I was very happy with the results and felt that I had a “normal” head of hair for the first time in years. In 2005 I had a second procedure and now feel that I am almost in that fortunate group of “thick-haired” people.

I would urge any woman who is a candidate for a hair transplant to have no qualms or hesitation about having the surgery at Bernstein Medical. There is no “down side” to it–just a day or two out of your life and wonderful results within the year. 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.

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

Today is the day after my second procedure and I thought I would drop you a note to let you know how satisfied I am with my entire experience with you and your very professional staff.

In 2002, I visited quite a few hair transplant practices before being recommended to you by my dermatologist. I’m certainly glad he made the recommendation. What impressed me about you was the combination of your ongoing dedication to hair restoration research, you commitment to the “artistry” of hair restoration that seemed to be lacking with other practitioners, and your overall level of professionalism as a medical doctor.

After my first procedure a year ago (and my countless questions both before and after the procedure), I, like all of your patients I’m sure, anxiously awaited the results to come to fruition. Needless to say, I was so happy with the results that the second procedure was never in doubt. To your prospective patients, “The hair will grow I say!”, and it is certainly enjoyable to watch new hair flourish after years of the opposite. Perhaps the most “credible” compliment comes from my hairstylist. She has many clients who’ve had hair transplants from their physicians, and she never fails to compliment me (and hence you) on my results in terms of both density and aesthetics that I achieved from just one session.

During both procedures, I was kept completely comfortable by your staff, and to anyone considering hair transplantation, I would describe the process to be painless and the post-op discomfort to be minimal at best. I will be happy to be a reference for you at any time in the future.

Please extend all my sincerest thanks to all who assisted in both procedures – Ruth, Bernice, Jill, Mari, Sandy, Nancy and Sejal (I hope I’m not forgetting anybody). I appreciated all their efforts and consideration towards my comfort, and their enjoyable conversation made the session that much easier as well. Many thanks to you all!

Yours truly,

L. R.



Dr. Bernstein and Staff,

I can’t tell you how happy I am with the continuing improvement from my repair procedures. Although still only 6-7 weeks from my last visit, I can see a more natural look is developing. The real proof is the favorable comments from family and friends and the less self-conscious feeling when going outside bareheaded. A big THANK YOU.

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I would like to thank you and your staff for the professionalism that was displayed during my procedure. My hair loss has been a distraction in my life over the last several years. I was very apprehensive about the hair transplant industry in general. There seems to always be inconsistencies regarding this industry, making it even more of an emotional impact on the patient’s decision, and commitment to find the right physician for a hair transplant.

It is apparent that you, along with your staff are truly motivated to make sure everything is done for the patient. Being a Paramedic, I was impressed with the treatment that I received. Your bedside manner is a true testament to you as a person and physician. I am typing this letter 3 days after my procedure of 1,900 grafts. I am very anxious to see the results during the months ahead, and am confident that I will be pleased with the results.

I look forward to seeing you again for my follow up visit in eight months, until then please extend my gratitude to your entire staff. Have a great summer.

Just a note of Thanks!

Dr. Bernstein,

It’s been a week and 3 days since my hair transplant procedure, and I just wanted to say thank you for everything. From scheduling my consultation and my procedure a day apart, to covering my stay at a rather nice hotel, you made this as trouble-free as possible. My consultation with you was brief and to the point; although I failed to bring my list of questions, you were very honest and helpful with your advice.
Your staff was great, and their laid-back demeanor really made me feel at ease.

I’m still using the shampoo and sponge you provided as per my aftercare instructions. The shampoo has not dried my scalp out at all: if anything its keeping my hair somewhat oily.

If these questions would be better addressed to another one of your staff I apologize. I mainly just wanted to say thank you for everything and I look forward to seeing you again for a follow-up evaluation a year from now.

Thanks again,

C. K.



Dear Dr. Bernstein,

This letter is long overdue.

I used to think about losing my hair 95% of my waking hours (and also many of my sleeping hours). That was too much time and energy spent pondering something that made me feel poorly about myself.

The most satisfying result from having the hair procedure done by you is that I think much less about my hair, except how really great it looks!

I am very, very grateful to you and your technicians and look forward to seeing you for my second procedure.

Thank you.


R. R.



Dear Dr. Bernstein,

It was a great pleasure in having my hair transplant done in your office. I appreciate your advice and friendliness. I was especially taken by the congeniality and dedication of your staff, each unique and charming in their own way. If you ever need a recommendation from this area, count of me to be your greatest support.

I have researched this procedure for 15 years. After the seminar with Dr. Bernstein I am convinced that I am DOING it and that Dr. Bernstein WILL be the Doctor.

I would never have believed that there really existed a true professional and honest Doctor. I am truly grateful for having the opportunity to witness an actual procedure and talk with a patient as the surgery was in progress.

That’s what I hoped for and expected. Photo’s just didn’t warrant my trust from any Doctor.
When I met actual patients and saw Dr. Bernstein’s “work “I was totally convinced. I was even more convinced when I heard Dr. Bernstein recommend that a particular person “not bother “, and just live with hair loss

A lot of Doctors would ” sell ‘ anybody, but I believe and I am convinced that Dr. Bernstein is a true professional and ethical Doctor. In this “world” it is almost hard to believe.

Thank You

Dear Dr. Bernstein,

I just wanted to send you a letter of thanks. It’s been one year since my second procedure, and I’m very happy with the results. I came to you after looking onto other companies, and one word came to mind after visiting: integrity. Everything that I was told came to pass. All my questions were answered honestly by the staff and patients. Those staff members who were particularly helpful to me during my procedures were: Bernice, Lisa, Nazia, Phillip and Sejal.

I was never rushed to have a procedure. In fact, I was encouraged to wait and think about the procedure instead of making a quick decision. Another company wanted me to undergo a procedure about a half hour after I walked in the door. I was totally prepared for the procedure and post-op, including time frames for healing and hair growth.

I was so pleased that I recommended you to my brother. He just had his first procedure this month and is very excited about the prospect of having hair on his head again. So was I. So thank you very much for the good work you did and the ethics you practice. It’s very refreshing to deal with such a professional organization.


J. S.
