Default Reviews from Gabel and Cooley

Hi All, I'm considering an FUT (both docs have recommended around 3000-4000) procedure in the near future. I've had an in-person consult with Dr Konior and if his wait time wasn't so long, i would've booked with him, with no hesitation. This has led my research to Dr Cooley and Dr Gabel both of whom are highly recommended on this forum.

I've spoken to Dr Cooley's patient advisor and she came across very professional and talked through the procedure in great detail. I also liked the fact he does the majority of his procedures without shaving the recipient area, which is ideal for me. A big tick in his box!

I've not managed to speak to Dr Gabel yet as he was away last week attending a conference.

I'd like to hear and read from previous Gabel and Cooley's previous patients and hear about their previous experiences?

Look forward to hearing from you!

Have had two FUTs with Dr. Gabel, thumbs up all the way. He cares and is involved every step of the way, my only regret is he didn't do my first FUT.

He augmented the density big time to make a happy camper, and refine the hairline.

I've personally met and spoken with patients of both doctors and I think you really cannot go wrong with either one. Good luck!

Greetings,
I had an unshaved FUT procedure done with Dr Cooley in July 2017; I've kept my pictures and notes offline for now as I'm only about 86 days out so the results won't speak for themselves for a few more months. I will start posting what I've documented next month.
Did you speak to Lollie? She's great
As for my experience, the whole team works great under Dr Cooley's leadership. While I was awake I remember Dr Cooley being there for close to the entire procedure.
If you have any questions in particular feel free to reach out to me and I"ll do my best to answer them.

Both surgeons produce consistently good results. As hairthere says, you're in safe hands with either of them.

You would be in great hands with them both, if you are not able to line up consultations with them both in person are you able to fix a time to speak on the phone or video chat. That way you can get a feel for them and they for what you are hoping to achieve.

Thanks for your response, hope your procedure went well! Yes i spoke to Lollie and yes she was brilliant. I absolutely did not feel like she was over selling the clinic and in particular Cooley's work. I have also sent you a PM. Thanks!

Thanks Pete and David appreciate your responses. Definitely pushing to speak to Cooley over the phone. I wouldn't book anything unless i have at least spoken to the surgeon or met him.
