dear leavers,

hi, i am deepender from India... what u want is 5 top hair transplant doctors in USA. here i want to tell u something that in USA if u go for a transplant u will have to pay a much higher amount for the same transplant which u can get in India. In India there is one Hair Transplant Specialist i.e. Mr. Arvind Poswal. I had done three times follicular hair transplant by him as per my requirements. The transplant procedure was very simple and highly hygenic. all the hairs are completely grown. Dr. Arvind Poswal in New Delhi is also doing FUSE (the latest technology). i had also done the FUSE this year also and the hairs and growing now (within 2 months) . India is having a very vast technology in medical. It will be very costly in USA if you do the same. if you have any queries you can ask me more. bye . you can also check the website of Dr. Poswal. i.e. www.besthairtransplant.com/

Beware of shopping by price for a hair transplant or any other doctor like this guy recommends. Its a bad mistake to use price as a criteria for a hair transplant doctor.

another newbie who happens to be a DR A from india patient. If i was a cynical person id think this was a form of spamming. Some message forums make ip addresses viewable, i think it would be good to have here also, to rule out anything untoward.

Well orrible,
It seems the Dr.A patients are just waking up to internet.
Mighty suspicious!- except that I had seen surgery at his clinic myself and posted pics on this forum.Otherwise even I would be mighty suspicious.

I am planning an October session.And I plan to maintain a detail photographic record.
I have done my research well on the doctor but that way if anything goes wrong I will let the world know.
(But I doubt something like that will happen).

I think there may be a simpler reason for his patients suddenly coming on the forums. Net is catching on in India and Dr.Arvind has started mentioning the web address of the forums in his newspaper ads.

Best strip Dr's IMO...Hasson and Wong, Dr.Wolf, Dr.Cole, Dr.Shapiro, Dr.Feller..watching this new guy Dr.Nakstui sp?, works look very tight and natural..

Best FUE Dr's..Dr.Cole, DHI (Dr.Zontos only), Dr.Feller is coming up also..

IMO...NYC is spot on with HW, Wolf, Shapiro, and Cole - to me these are "the 5".

Again Feller is progressing and I think, as Rugger suggested, Seager is worth a nod.

orrible,
Thank you for bringing up something that I settled already, I appreciate that..And yes I did say that..My feelings toward Dr.Cole have changed because I came to conclusion that density when it comes to a FUE/FIT procedure is based on the depth of the patients pocket and not the Dr's doing..

"Worth a nod?" He's worth way more than that.

NYCman ,
I'm glad to hear that, this might be the start of a new relationship
Dr Cole is doing an excellent job and takes a lot of repair cases that no other doctor want to deal. The first thing i learned during my time in this business is that every patient is different, every case is different and when you compare, especially with photos you need to take this in mind. To some people Hair Loss is a disaster and it doesn't matter what Norwood they are, it can bring up emotions to different levels. The goal is to deal with it and to try to help yourself and others by searching and learning from mistakes. Nycman just proved me that he is honest and open minded.

Hey Coolguy,

Were you actually at Dr. A's clinic in India and was it a FUE patient(s)? What thread did you post Dr. A's patient pics at? Just for my own curiosity.

Leavers, were you asking for the top 5 strip or fue/fit surgeons? That could change who you may want to research further and do not forget to check out Dr. Rose as well. Best wishes in your quest!

While Gillenator may feel that I should be considered in the top rated group of physicians, it is important to know that I recently employed his firm for some of my practice management. I and others believe that anyone receiving funds from a physician should state this in posts.

Dr.Rose,
That was a very truthful post on your part..As for your not being on this imaginary list all I can say personally is I don't get to see much if any of your work on this site...

I'm impressed Dr. R. Very commendable of you to volunteer this info. I agree with you 100%. Gillenator, for your posts to be credible please add a signature offering full disclosure. This is asked of all posters in similar scenarios (Bverotti, Whoops, Forhair, Jotronic, among others). Regards.
