5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

Couldn't have asked for a better experience

Dr. Parungau is AWESOME!! I am a 29 year old male with the early stages of a receding hairline. My hair is far from bald but I wanted to try stay ahead of my hair loss. Regardless, to say I had a lot of questions is an understatement. Dr. Parungao instantly made me feel comfortable when I met with him, he was thorough, caring, personable, and explained every detail of his excellent work. He...

Chicagoland's Best in Hair Restoration

After visiting 5 different hair restoration doctors in the Chicagoland area, Allan was the obvious choice. His genuine care for his patients was obvious, and the level of experience he brings to the field is incomparable. Experiencing Androgenic Alopecia can be devastating to a person's confidence, but after years of trying failed snake oils, Allan was there to provide an effective solution...

Amazing experience

Very well, caring. The entire staff was amazing. He really wants the best for his patients. As soon as you walk in the building you feel comfort and become relaxed when you meet the staff. Very comfortable

5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

I had an amazing experience

I've had the Follicular Unit Extraction procedure done a couple times within a 18 month period. Dr. Parungao and the Bosley medical team on both occasions made everything as easy and efficient as they possibly could, from the free consultation to the post-procedure (beginning to end). If you're looking for hair loss solutions, I would recommend you paying them a visit.

Outstanding doctor

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Parungao and his team. He truly is an artist at his craft. He is very nice and puts you at ease the moment you speak to him. He has a great team as well. I initially saw him 2 years ago for a brow transplant. I literally had no eyebrows before (due to years of over plucking) Having this procedure done has really boosted my self confidence. It's amazing...

5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

Excellent all around

Excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I had a 2240 FUE done with him and his staff recently with virtually no pain at all. Not only does Dr. P obviously excel at his craft (as is evidenced by his work and how I was referred to him, but he's also a great guy. If you've ever considered getting an evaluation of your hair loss, he's your guy. There is absolutely no pressure to do anything...

Highest Grade Possible

Dr. Parungao is fantastic. Supremely skilled. Friendly and answered all my questions. Wonderful staff. During my entire experience I felt at ease and confortable. The results of my procedure were as great as I could've imagined. I recommend Dr. P as highly as I can.

5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant

I left confident not self conscious!

Dr. Parungoa was great. My FUE hair transplant went well! We talked about my goals and expectations to put together a plan that I'm excited about. He gave me options based on his experience and expertise.

I highly recommend Dr. Parungao, I'd never go anywhere else - Chicago, IL

After having complications during my first hair transplant procedure with another Chicago transplant surgeon, I decided to try Bosley and Dr. Allan Purungao in the Chicago office. The entire experience was absolutely brilliant. Dr. Parungao was friendly and assured me there would be no such problems this time. And boy was he right. From the start, he and his entire staff were...
