Good day group,

I live on Long Island, NY, and I am considering getting a third (and maybe more) treatment(s).

I have a few questions that I would greatly appreciate if the group could answer to assist me.

My first two procedures were done by Dr Hitzig. I am not happy with results I got. But maybe it is OK. I am not sure. Are his methods new? Best? Sound? I know about his legal nonsense. Who cares. I care about whether he is good or not. Any feedback?

I am now seeking a new doctor.
Here are the doctors I am considering:
Alan Feller
Mark Baxa
Robert Dorin
Robert True
They all have offices on Long Island
(Does any one know of any other good MD's on Long Island?)

Out of these doctors, which do you feel is the best with best results?

I am not a rich man, so Alan Feller's statement in his ad on the site that he works relatively inexpensively is intriguing. Is he still good?
Does he use the best techniques?

What is the best technique that I should make certain these doctors use when I speak to them?
Which one's of the above use the newest and best procedures?
Does Feller use them?

Has anyone used Feller? Any feedback?

Any idea how much approximately feller charges for an average procedure? The others?

If my units are screwed up, how about having them removed and replaced? Is this a big deal? Am I going to look like heck for awhile if this is done? Does it have to be done?

I have itching sometimes, years later. What is this?

Is these anyone who knows a lot about all of this that I could spend a few minutes with on the phone? I would appreciate it eternally.
If so, you may email me at:
acil@optonline.net
Anyone else may feel free to email me with help as well. Thank you

Thank you all for contributing by taking time to answer all the above questions.

Thank you and God bless

CD

I speak from personal experience with Dr Feller. I had 900+ FUE with him into my hairline to repair my previous unsatisfactory HT work.

I now act as a showcase for him in the U.K and many people have inspected this work with much praise.

Dr Feller is respected as one of the best HT Dr's in the world. He is highly ethical and his results are quite astonishing. Combined with his high levels of skill and precision he is also a gentleman. See a recent post made by him on the board only a few days ago.
Link to patient pics

Dr Feller performs all the latest techniques and has been for some time, including Tricho Closure, Lateral slit, and FUE.

His pricing structure is very competitive. You need to look at the structure on his web site to see cost for your individual size surgery. It is not possible to give you an average price as this depends on the size surgery you require and with which technique - see his costs on his site.

The best thing you could do with living so close is to contact his office to arrange a consultation with him. You are fortunate to live so close - Many guys travel all the way over from the U.K to see him - its a mission to say the least!

Good luck and if i can be of any further help please feel free to email me.
Regards
Spex

I just had a HT with Dr. Feller. He did nice work. I got around 2500 grafts done. My hairline is a little crooked but I am still happy. He seems like a nice guy and all I have heard about him was nice things. His office could use alittle work because it is very unorganized.

CD,

Welcome to our forum. Dr. Feller, Dr. True and Dr. Dorin have gotten consistantly good patient reviews on this forum (as has Dr. Bernstein in NYC) and they all perform state of the art hair transplantation. I suggest you click on the "Find" button on this forum and do a search using the last name of each of these surgeons.

Then do a free consult with those you are most impressed with.

Keep us all posted and best wishes, Pat

CD,

If you must stay in the NY area you cannot pick a finer surgeon than Dr. Feller, period.

I am a patient of Dr. Robert True. I can guarantee you and in fact do guarantee you, that in my opinion NO doctor in the world is more capable and expert at crafting the best possible hair transplant result from what's available. In addition he and Dr. Dorin have the kindest, most professional nurses and technicians assisting, all of which has made this whole process a dream come true. I've seen hair transplants as an adult since 1965...so I know what I'm talking about. I am 52 years old. No one can tell that I've had the surgery nor have I told anyone. Everyone assumes I've gotten this unbelievable great result from medication. I realize there are many patients out there with a specific allegiance to one doctor or another. This is my take on things. I would consider making a decision about having a hair transplant in NY without consulting True & Dorin to be a seriously incomplete one.

I flew all the way from Europe to have my HT with Dr Feller in November 05. My results so far are on view in the photo section. My surgery went well; no pain, no swelling, no complications and now I'm growing hair and it looks natural. So, I have no hesitations with recommending Dr Feller - in fact I'm flying over again next month to see him for his opinion on what could be done about my crown.

PB

Andyb,

Sorry, but your math doesn't work out. You said you've "seen hair transplants as an adult since 1965...so I know what I'm talking about".

You then say that you are 52 years old. I don't think that an eleven year old is an adult and I find it odd that you were looking at hair transplants as a sixth grader. Is this simply a typo?
