5 out of 5 stars Hair Transplant

Results As expected !

Hi everyone, I decided to write a testimonial because of the amazing results I received from my surgeon. In December I had an FUE Hair Transplant. To give you a little background information, I am 29 years old and decided to have the procedure done due to my receding hairline. When I went to see Dr. Sean for my consultation, he made me feel so comfortable and gave me reassurance that he...

Amazing work !!!

WOW & THANK YOU!! Those are my 2 words for Dr. Sean Behnam . I found him on yelp with exceptional reviews and experienced exactly that - from my first visit through post surgery visit (all within 5 weeks time). First visit he performed a simple in-office scalp check up , which ironically NONE of my other Drs I went for consultation did! This was followed by drawing on my scalp to see the...

Good bye Toppik / Hats

Dr. Behnam ( Sean ) is THE BEST. I have been going to him for the past 7 months for my post -op follow up appointments and he has great bedside manner and truly cares about his patients. I had an FUT Hair Transplant done by Doctor Sean and I am shocked with the results ! It's insane how 8 hours sitting in a comfortable chair, while technicians are working on your head, pain free !!!! can...

I was recommended to Dr. Sean by a friend for an issue I had with my male pattern hair loss .I had a really bad hair loss to the point where I was wearing hats everyday.

After seeing him for an evaluation I went ahead and booked my appointment for the surgery. And now few months...

Fox 11 Good Day L.A.

Found Dr. Sean on Fox 11 Good Day LA few years ago when looking for a new doc. His ratings were very high, and for good reason. My favorite two things about Dr. Sean is that he is punctual and friendly. He doesn't keep you waiting if you have an appointment. And if you don't have an appointment, the wait has not been unreasonable. Dr. Sean is instantly likeable as he calm, positive and...

What a great doctor

I find Doctor Sean compared to all other surgeons I have met; the most intelligent; compassionate; patient in listening and responding to my concerns; promptly responsive with treatments that are successful in bringing the desired results. I have chosen the FUE method and I am very happy with my decision. The results are remarkable. I sincerely appreciate his faith based approach to...

Just a great experience

I've had my hair transplant a year and a half ago and it went great, actually better than I've hoped for. Dr. Sean Behnam and his staff couldn't have been nicer from beginning to end and I just want to thank them

The time machine

Dr.Sean has such a calming effect and his entire procedure was totally pain free. He is very professional and at the same time personal. Him and his assistants were wonderful. They are located in a very convenient location with a parking structure. Beautiful office and very organized. As of now ( 3 days after surgery ) the hair looks full and the hairlines looks natural so I'm happy !!! I will...

Professional Doctor

My consultation day, i was promptly greeted upon arrival and all information was taken care of at the front desk. I sat in the waiting area and was taken to an examining room a couple of minutes prior to my appointment time. The attending nurse took all the information and explained that Dr. Sean would be with me momentarily. Dr. Sean arrived a couple of minutes later and we discussed the...
