Saved Me. Redondo Beach, CA

I also had poor growth results from a transplant when I was 18. dr Umar took me in, did tests, biopsies, and even offered a mini session to see how it turned out. 5 years later, and several transplants later,...

Amazing, Professional, Meticulous, and Caring! - Redondo Beach, CA

I am a 31 year old Caucasian male. I began to lose my hair when I was 18 years old, and heading into college.
