Hasson & Wong negative reviews

Recommended Posts

I don’t know much about HnW. What I do know is that there have been patients that have been less than satisfied. I looked hard and long but could not find a Dr. Konior patient that wasn’t happy with his/her results. 

As I said, I am not a spokesperson for Dr. Konior. I was simply sharing my experience hoping someone would find it helpful. So far, I have been extremely pleased with the entire process  

Before I chose Dr. Konior, I had a consultation with a prominent doctor whose name pops up on this forum quite often. I asked him “If you were to have the surgery who would you go to?” Without hesitation, he said “Konior, no doubt. He is an artist.”  That statement prompted me to make an appointment with Dr. Konior and travel to Chicago for a consultation. He is a very honest, straightforward person and I felt very comfortable with him.  

All that said, I had about 3500 grafts over two days, and I am 3 days post-op. As they say, the proof is in the pudding.  Hopefully, I will be this happy 6 months from now.

3500 grafts should be amazing. I had 2000 with him a few years ago and it was enough to provide me amazing coverage throughout  my hairline and midscalp. Hopefully you should be all set.

I can only echo your sentiments about Konior from personal experience. Was always overwhelmed at his level of responsiveness. 

I've only heard of unhappy patients in the distant past from HnW admittedly, has anyone heard anything recently?

You are definitely correct about Konior's approach.

I consulted with 4 or 5 clinics, all whom suggested a procedure of around 1500-2,000 grafts.

However, it was the personal reply of Dr. Konior (not a representative like the others) who suggested I hold off on a HT for the time being, and wait a year or so, then decide if it's truly what I want to undertake.

We emailed back and fourth a few times, and the man just gave me his honest assessment, advice, and peace of mind. It was truly refreshing. You can tell he's an amazing surgeon.

I recently had a skype interview with Dr. Wong. Nice guy, made me feel at ease, said all the right things.

I felt comfortable with him, and am pretty close to booking a procedure with him. I recently googled H & W, and quite a few horror stories online. Stories about patients being double booked, surgeons disappearing during procedures, aggressive sales tactics. 

This is my second, and most probably, last procedure. Not sure if i will recover if i botch this by selecting the wrong surgeon. Been there, done that. 

I need some advice from all the wonderful people here. How are Hasson and Wong viewed in the hair transplant community? Am i in good hands? 

Should i stick to someone in the States?

Thanks. Really counting on some feedback.

I've been in the Hasson office but never actually got a procedure done with them. I went to them to fix the botch job that Baubac did. I wasn't really happy to hear about how they were going to fix the Baubac butchering, plus the expense. However, I wish that I had gone to Hasson before going to Baubac in the first place, as he does seem like one of the better surgeons, although I don't have any evidence of my own for this statement. 

Giving up on HTs altogether now. Not matter what they tell you, succesful grafts can and do fall out. They are not necessarily permanent. Think about this hard before you commit to anything. It's expensive and there is the possibility of being hacked up ( of course, some people do seem to have very good results, just not I ;)).

Guys,

Let's be serious here, Hasson and Wong are no where near a hair mill. They are two surgeons with two teams who perform surgery. Just because they are not one doctor, and one tech doesn't make them a hair mill. Let's not get in to a "my doctor is better than yours" debate. Back to the topic you would be hard pressed to find any negative reviews for Hasson and Wong they are absolutely elite and have been for over a decade.


I do not provide medical advice, recommendations, all responses are my opinion.

yeah i chose the wrong word on that one (even apologised privately to aftermath). It was more of a comment on the level of involvement by some doctors at every step which i now hold as invaluable - given the lack of doctor involvement at a previous clinic is what led me to become a repair patient (essentially one hand wasnt aware what the other hand was doing). However it doesnt mean that the specialised division of labour involved at other clinics, like HnW is necessary a deficit, and given the potential for doctor fatigue might even be beneficial.

Be difficult to find anyone arguing HnW aren't world class
