Dear Dr. Bernstein & Staff,

Thanks for doing such a great job and making me feels so comfortable during my recent “Follicular Transplantation” surgery. I know it will be several months before I see the results, but I just wanted to thank you ALL!

Dear Dr. Bernstein:

I continue to be exceptionally pleased with the results of your fine work. It was very disturbing to me to watch my appearance change so drastically when I started losing my hair in my thirties. Wearing a hair piece for several years did return my appearance to what I thought it should be but was a constant source of anxiety and required time and money consuming maintenance to have it continue to look its best. And even then, I knew that people could tell that I was “wearing” hair and not growing it.

Choosing surgery was easy, but choosing a hair restoration 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 such as yourself 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 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.

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.
