Hi there,

 

This is my first post here. I tried to make an appointment with Dr. Nader thanks to this forum. Today I received a reply from his assistant with the following message:

 

“Based on the photos you sent we are unable to determine if you are a proper candidate for a hair transplant. We would like to advise if you have a chance to visit a local dermatologist he can give you a lab order for testing. Anything from a low testosterone, low thyroid, low ferritin level might also cause diffuse alopecia and need to be discarded. We consider recommending finding the right diagnosis for your hair loss before recommending a hair transplant as a first option. We want to make sure we recommend the best possible outcome for your hair.”

 

Anybody else went through something similar? I didn’t know that you could not be a candidate. Thanks and any answers are highly appreciated.

Patients get turned away for several reasons, but mainly because they don’t have a stable donor supply. Can you post some pictures?

In the photos it may appear as if the donor area may be thinning. However, this could be just the lighting. I would suggest having someone retake the photos for you, try to take photos in natural light, if you’re taking a picture directly under a light, the light may reflect off of your scalp causing your entire scalp to look thin.
