Just had an FUT HT on 7/26/19 with Dr Scott Alexander in Phoenix, AZ. I'm 46 years old and after MUCH research, almost 2 years worth, I decided Dr Alexander would be the perfect doctor to perform my HT.
From the very first consultation with Dr A I felt very comfortable and NEVER pressured. His staff from day one were always very warm and made me feel at ease. They let me take this at my own pace and were always very open and willing to answer my questions along the way. I had my wife along in the 2nd consultation, almost a year later, she also felt extremely comfortable with Dr Alexander and his staff, so I decided the time was right to move forward.
Their front office is warm yet private and the surgical area is what you would expect it to be, very clean, organized and sterile. The surgery itself went down like clockwork. From all of my research it was everything I expected almost to the letter with no surprises. I'd have to say that from process, comfort level, professionalism, and expertise of Dr Alexander and his team I'd give them an A+.
Now results...Only time will tell but I feel great about the surgery and will be posting photos and updates as things progress....
One other mention of credit needs to be given. I have to thank Spex for helping me through this entire process up to the surgery and now beyond. He has answered all my questions (hundreds) and has been nothing short of a freaking hero to all the ppl, including me, that are flipping out about losing their hair and not knowing what to do. Thanks, Spex
Pics coming soon...
I had my FUE surgery done on June 6th, 2014 by Dr. John Diep. Before selecting Dr. Diep as my surgeon, I did extensive research for about a year on FUE procedures and looked at many before and after videos. After viewing some of Dr. Diep's videos on youtube, I was instantly intrigued. I liked how detailed his videos were and how he explained everything in all of his videos because each patient/case is unique. I also loved the fact that he was active on youtube and posting RECENT videos of his work. This made me even more comfortable. I knew then I had found my surgeon!
I flew in from Maryland and arrived in San Jose on June 5th. When I arrived at his clinic on June 6th, we were greeted with his staff which they were pleasant. They also asked what type of lunch I wanted as it was going to be a long day for me! I met Dr. Diep shortly afterwards and he explained to me everything that was going to go down. He then outlined my hairline and areas where he was going to do my work. After seeing this, I was excited to get this process started.
After the procedure, he gave me some instructions of what to do in the coming days/weeks/months. The after pics are were taken today (7/4/2015). This is the longest I have let my hair grow since the surgery. Before I kept my hair cut low (1) so everything could look even while I was waiting for my new hair to grow. After a year, I can honestly say the surgery was a success! I told Dr. Diep I stare at my rear view mirror sometimes looking at my hairline...lol. It just feels good to have a straight hairline once again!

Info on me:
Flew in from Maryland.
Here are my BEFORE pics (taken day of surgery (6/6/2014) and the recent pics taken today (7/4/2015). On the recent pics, this is the longest I have let my hair grow since the day of surgery. Before then, I had kept it low at a 1 to give time for my implanted hair to grow. My last hair cut was 2 months ago. Every week since then, I have been getting more and more coverage.
