She believes that restoring hair is a labor of love, and that hair is an essential component of a patient’s dignity.
The reason I chose Dr. Wasserbauer was that she and her staff were so professional and knowledgeable, but they also were very low key and down to earth. They made me feel like family and that I was very well cared for.T. L.
Dr. Sara didn’t push me to make a decision and even gave me other patients to talk to so that I was comfortable making my decision. The whole process was relaxed and professional.G. R.
The staff at Dr. Sara’s office is wonderful. I learned so much from them just by sitting in the waiting room! Everyone took their time answering all my questions about hair, and even random questions about health. I’ve already sent 2 of my friends to their office for consults.R. T.
