Visit to Dr. H. Rahal's Clinic in Ottawa, Canada

Recommended Posts

Having seen many impressive hair transplant results from Dr. Rahal's patients on our forum over the past year, I expected to see the very best while at his clinic. I'm pleased to write that after seeing he and his meticulous and dedicated staff performing truly ultra refined grafting I can now understand how they consistently produce such impressive and ultra refined results.

 

Dr. Rahal has worked for over ten years to evolve and refine his technique and build up his large and experienced staff so that they can provide patients with large and highly refined sessions exceeding 3000 grafts. At least two of his lead medical technicians have been with him for over ten years.

 

On the day of my visit I had the pleasure of speaking with three of his patients in person and his staff. They all spoke in glowing terms about Dr. Rahal's passion for his work and his patients.

 

I had heard the stories about him driving his patients around town and to the airport to make not just their surgery but their visit optimal.

 

One patient who posts as "RahalPatient" on our forum came by so I could see his very impressive 9 month results, which are also shown in this photo album. In only one session "one pass" he truly achieved both naturalness and density.

 

He spoke to me in private in glowing terms about the amazing personal care and interest that Dr. Rahal took in him following his surgery. He told me how impressed he was by the follow up calls that Dr. Rahal made in the weeks after his surgery to assure that his progress and recovery was good.

 

Another patient came in for his six month follow up and had excellent growth and density at only 6 months. He had done just under 1,600 grafts to restore his receding hairline. He reported that his transplanted hair had started growing at less than two months and that he was very happy with his treatment, service and results.

 

A female patient who had diffuse thinning on top was also in the office and showed me her results. She had really restored a full look in her thinning areas and was delighted that she could now style her hair any way she wanted. Her donor scar, even upon close examination was virtually impossible to find.

 

She and all the patients I saw in person had virtually undectable donor scars and their transplanted hair and scalp looked absolutely natural.

 

On the day of my visit the patient of the day was from Korea. He had lower than average density and the vast majority of his follicular units were one and two hairs, as is typical with many Asian patients. Thus despite taking a fairly wide and long strip he only yielded just under 3,000 grafts.

Pat,

 

After seeing so many of his patient's results online and even seeing member Hairfree's results in person, it is not a surprise for me to read that Dr. Rahal is producing superb ultra refined results.

 

It is also apparent that he goes above and beyond by showing genuine concern and care for his patients - bringing patient satisfaction to a whole new level.

 

Thanks for the detailed review!

 

Bill

This man and his staff define PROFESSIONALISM

I was just in there for surgery (results to follow) and he actually cares about his patients (Provides food, rides).

I just had my donor stitches removed and my family physician

could not believe how meticulous his work was.

 

Highly recommended.

Did he visit again? Where can we see the updated review, or are you talking about his visit in 2007?

No, but I would love to visit Dr. Rahal, I have been a fan for quite sometime. Perhaps, it is something we can arrange in the near future.
