5 out of 5 stars Hair Transplant

Hair is looking great these days

I was in a band and always had really long crazy hair. I started losing my hair, so I always wore bandanas or hats to cover the baldness. I visited a few hair restoration clinics and did not feel comfortable with how I only met with sales consultants. When I went to Dr. Behnam, I liked that I actually met with the doctor himself. He went over everything I needed to know before committing to...

By far the best Doctor

By far the best doctor I came across when it comes to hair restoration. I literally talked to 3 different doctors and all of them were so desperate to do a transplant on me, but Dr. Sean was the only one who wanted me to wait to be able to achieve best results, even when I asked him to do the surgery. He is as honest as a doctor can be, I started losing hair when I was around 24 and since then...

FUE PROCEDURE

Through the years I have watched my hair disappear. My kids would always make fun of my ‘landing strip’ on my frontal hairline and how old I was looking. Now only three (3) months after my surgery, I have regained some of that youthful character I possessed when I was in my thirties. It is still early after my surgical hair restoration surgery, and I am excited with how much more hair I wil...

Reasonable Pricing

I went to Dr. Sean in December of 2016 I had two previous transplants by another doctor and decided to change to Dr. Sean . My front hairline had some "pitting" and it looked like I had a transplant done. After Dr. Sean, my hairline looked natural and he thickened other areas that needed it. I even interviewed with two other hair transplant doctors, just to explore my options. I went with Dr....

Clean & Comfortable

Completely awesome experience. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The office space is clean, comfortable, and relaxing. I almost felt like I was at a spa. The experience exceeded my expectations. Doctor Sean has gifted hands. The staff was very professional, very empathetic, and totally accommodating to my needs. They made me feel like my comfort was their paramount goal. Even the...

THE BEST

I'm writing this review as a patient of the Dermatology and Hair restoration Clinic. Prior to coming to Dermatology and Hair Restoration Clinic, I had consulted with two other hair clinics that included, Bosley Medical and Dr Zirring My experience with Bosley medical was very good and I was quite convinced that I would have them perform my procedure until I met the crew of Doctor Sean's. Dr...

Painless FUE procedure

I am at the stage where I am waiting to see results from the FUE transplant. They aren't visible yet, but should be soon if it worked. Dr.Sean Behnam and his staff have been competent and compassionate through this process. Entire explanations of the process have helped greatly. Explanations that prepared me for what was about to be done. The procedure itself was painless. Explanations for my...

Miracle Doctor

Dr.Sean and his team are miracle workers. I have seen about 5 different hair transplant surgeons in different city's (most of them from highly reputable clinics ) Most of them spent barely any time with me during consults only to recommend the expensive technique, My first consultation with Dr. Sean was the most informative and educational out of the 5 I had with other surgeons His fully...

5 out of 5 stars Hair Transplant

Thicker fuller hair

When I called the doctors office I was able to speak to a sympathetic and understanding person about my condition ( balding area on my head ) and assured me my own personal experience in getting a diagnosis and the frustration was not unusual and she assured me they would help scheduling me before my big day is due. They did just that, forms were provided just like they advised during the call...

Thank GOD for Doctor Sean

I was worried about doing the surgery till I found Dr. Sean on This site and I am so glad I found him! He was very friendly, approachable, answered all my questions & made me feel very comfortable. It was a painless procedure & I was surprised all the grafts were placed even before I knew! Staff were very friendly & nice! My healing was very smooth & painless, way better than...
