So Nice I Did It Twice And You Should Too!
I am a 51 year old man. I had moderate to severe hair loss at my front hairline and crown area. My friends and loved ones “jokingly “ called my crown a blank canvas. I am an upscale salon owner and very accomplished stylist. Needless to say my hair low was not humorous to me at all. Dr. Wasserbauer was kind sensitive and totally professional. She and her staff worked around my hectic schedule to find a time that worked for me. Dr Wasserbauer explained every aspect of the procedure until I felt comfortable with watch was going to happen. The only discomfort I felt was the numbing shots, it was brief and totally bearable. The staff were caring and very professional. Even lunch was delicious ( Sara I need the name of that sandwich shop) . Following the home care instructions is simple and with doing exactly. By the way I’ve done it twice now and still can’t recommend it highly enough. Thank you Dr. Wasserbauer and your wonderful staff!
