Thin Hair Issues - Chicago, IL

Overall, the hair transplant experience was fine. However, I wasn't comforatable with the non-clinical patent coordinator examining my scalp before my initial consultation with the doctor. I think the practice would benefit from having a clinical patient coordinator who's also had a hair transplant. The post-procedure instructions should be reviewed with a nurse prior to the procedure, while...

Dr Yates is a True Artist - Vernon Hills, IL

Dr Yates restored my hair on top and front hairline. I had approximately 2600 grafts in all over two procedures. The results are fantastic and my hair looks like it did in my late 20s I'm currently 46. People say I look younger and it gives me more confidence being in the public eye with my job. I am a cosmetologist by trade and have recommended this procedure to several of my clients they...

Excellent experience with Doctor William Yates, he answered all my questions. His staff is excellent as well and helpful. I liked Doctor Yates helpfulness and really liked that he performed the surgery himself. I had a great experience and will definitely go back to Doctor Yates in the future.
