I don't have the words to say how much I admire and respect Dr Cole. He is technically brilliant, a world class scholar but blends this with a kindness and humanity that helps him see the bigger picture for each of his patients. Genuinely outstanding man.

36 Years Old, Scar Repair with Dr. Cole

Dr. Cole is a true professional. He demonstrated a strong medical ethics, he was very honest all the way. During the consultation he set the expectation with me of what is possible and what is not. His experience, his artistic view, and honesty really bought me on the first meeting. He was not hesitating to present the unpleasant truth that it will take at least 2-3 procedures to deal with the scar, and that the end result might still be visible and I might need more procedures in order to provide the result I visualize in my mind, whatever I choose to do the scar will look much better and less visible even after 1 procedure . Even when I tried to push for 1 procedure and move on, he didn't attempt to mitigate his opinion and presented his view backing up with more facts till I comprehended the situation . In this business there are a lot of crooks and unprofessional doctors that will feed you with what you want to hear just to score more profit. Choosing Dr. Cole with his attitude and knowing he is a pioneer in the hair transplant business especially with the FUE, faded away all my hesitations . After the first procedure the scar visibility improved in 80%, and after the second procedure I really hope I can put behind the mistake I made 12 years ago, and move on without providing silly excuses to people who ask me about the scar. The day of the procedure went smooth, the procedure was completely painless and was over after 5 hours with a lunch break in the middle. The staff at Dr. Cole’s clinic are AMAZING, I felt really good at their hands the girls who worked on my head were really nice, gentle and most important professional. A special thanks to the AMAZING LUBA the anesthetic nurse who made the whole process completely painless she was gentle, caring and a great conversion person who helped me to kill the time, and came to check on me every now and than. I also felt great among the non medical staff who surrounded me ( The receptionist, The photographer- "Ronen the GEVER”, and other people whom I met. I really felt comfortable and relaxed among his staff) Needless to say that Dr. Cole himself is the one who actually does the harvesting with his own hands ( not a robot or a Dr. assistant like other clinics). He chose grafts from different area’s in the head, so when I shave my head there will be no white spots always thinking ahead of the natural look, he selected grafts which has the better chance to survive in the scar tissue, and he used different size of holes based on his experience to plant them back in the scar. The procedure itself was painless, the staff was friendly and caring and Dr. Cole himself projects comfort and professional confidence that your are in good hands. During my second procedure (15 month AFTER the first) Dr. Cole took special care of me and he decided to fix the unnatural look of my front line this was done without extra charge just based on his good will. He also injected a mixture cells called ACEL that help the donor area and the recipient area to heal faster and improve their survival chances, also that was done without me asking , it was a nice bonus that was a really really nice gesture . I would definitely recommend each person to do a thorough research before deciding to take such procedure, I must say from my point of view I have FULL satisfaction from my choice to go with Dr. Cole. He got what it takes to be successful in this business – he is honest, sharp, creative, professional, knows to listen, knows skin and hair and bring great results. I highly recommend him.

Hair Loss at The Crown of My Head - Alpharetta, GA

Dr. Cole was very knowledgeable and described what to expect with this procedure. Also, they gave me a timeline of what to expect and when after the procedure. The team that did the transplant was very efficient and made me feel at ease. I am extremely satisfied with the people that I dealt with and with the results which are amazing.

What a difference! You HAVE to visit Dr. Cole............

After several transplant procedures over the years with different doctors, I still had a terrible frontal hairline and large areas without hair, resulting in a comb-over hair style that I did not like in order to hide my hairline and bald spots. Little did I realize that I was only fooling myself! Then I discovered Dr. Cole. While I was not particularly keen about the trip to Atlanta being...

I had two procedures done with Dr Cole. The result is just fantastic. The last procedure was to repair the very poor job done by alan bauman. ( Worst mistake of my life going with bauman ) Dr Cole surgical skills are just superb!. On top of that he really CARES about his patients. You can tell he genuinely cares about his patients. I will always be thankful to Dr Cole
