5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant
I had looked at the doctor's work online and it was really impressive. I compared his work to other doctors and liked his hairline designs and how he could get so much coverage from a relatively low number of grafts (compared to what other doctors were recommending and using.) Dr. Vories is so nice and accommodating. He really has a relaxed confidence that puts you at ease. The procedure took 7 hours which included a lunch break. The facility was clean, the doctor and the tech were great, and time flew because there were music videos playing on a huge screen in the operating room. Pain was not an issue because the doctor really was proactive about using the local anesthetic and responsive when I told him I could feel something. Most important, I love what I see so far!
5 out of 5 stars FUE Hair Transplant
I waited until I long after the 1 year results to post. I'm a 41yo male with standard MPB that was especially severe on the crown. I had a consult with Dr Vories. He did such a natural job working with my swirly crown that no believe me when I tell them. It's not overdone. I had FUE, and it was very effective.
