5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

Self Renewal - Atlanta, GA

Being roughly 45 years old and a 3 on the Norwood scale I had serious doubts on ever having a hair transplant done. I kept seeing awful strip scars and I knew if I did have the procedure done I would defiantly have the FUE surgery. I did plenty of research and I started saving for my procedure. I called Dr Cole after years of waiting and I can honestly without a doubt, one of the best...

43 Year Old Male, 3957 Graft FUE with Dr. Cole - Atlanta, GA

I have seen many great progress stories on RS and thought I would share mine as well. I am currently in month 10 since the procedure though I kept a detailed record of my progress. I'll start off by praising Dr. Cole and his Atlanta crew. I would call nearly 4,000 grafts to be a large procedure. There wasn't a single person in his office that wasn't assisting Dr. Cole during The procedure. It...

1030 Strip Fu Hairline Repair with Dr Cole in Nicosia Cyprus- Aprox 12 Years Ago.

This is a review I wrote at the time of my operation with Dr Cole repairing my UK ht by the dreadful Nobel Clinic near Gatwick, London. Given the time, I didn't have much in the way of digital imaging or internet beyond basic dial up so I hope you can excuse the lack of pictures- I did my best to describe what it was like having the operation and I hope that is of some help to some of you. I...

36 Years Old, Scar Repair with Dr. Cole

14 years ago had a strip hair transplant from an unprofessional Dr. in Israel. his results were not satisfying and I was left with pathetic front hair line, and a bonus scar on the back of my head. As I grew older I continued to lose more hair, and the hair graft that were transplanted were looking more visible and didn't look natural. At some point in my life after I got married and...

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

I was 58 years old at the time of my hair transplant last year. The consultation was very thorough and the hair transplant procedure went like clockwork. My hair has grown back and it continues to thicken. If you are considering hair transplant I would strongly suggest that you contact Dr. Cole's office. I am pleased beyond measure.

50 Year Old with Thinning Hair - Alpharetta, GA

I finally had first of four procedures starting in may of 2014.. total of 2500 grafts so far. the procedure is so non invasive, I have had no down time other than taking it easy at the gym. Any sign of something being done...

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...

AMAZING DOCTOR with amazing surgical skills.

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
