Refund policies of the top Doctors?

Recommended Posts



Each case really needs to be taken on an individual basis. But several reputable physicians have offered and given refunds in extreme situations.


While the chance of success in the hands of a quality hair restoration physician is extremely high, in my opinion, it's always best to discuss these policies with physicians ahead of time.


Patients are always informed of these policies in the paperwork they sign prior to the procedure. But far too often patients just hope for the best, sign their life away and don't ask their physician about these policies. In my opinion, patients need to be proactive prior to surgery in discussing these concerns with their doctor so they are fully aware of how their concerns would be handled in the event of less than optimal growth. Knowing these policies ahead of time will help patients make an informed decision on proceeding with the procedure.


The bottom line however is, a stand up physician will stand behind their patients and help them get the results they ultimately deserve. But patients also must have realistic expectations as to what can realistically be achieved both short and long term. That's why hair restoration is really a collaboration between an educated patient and a quality hair restoration physician.


I hope this helps.

Its a lot easier for the docs to earn money than for us to earn it so sub standard results need to be refunded or otherwise compensated.


A bad result could bankrupt somebody very easily, because of them having to spend money to get it rectified.

Does anyone know if the top Doctors on this site offer a refund or partial refund when there is a total hair growth failure? I ask this because i have spent alot of money on HT with 2 south florida doctors. The results with nothing with both and both refused to refund a pennie. I just feel like a top doctor should stand behind his work.


Dear runman


Yes Dr Humayun Mohmand of Pakistan offer 100% refund incase of complete failure. Its the patient's choice if he wants to trust again and come for 2nd complimentry surgery or refund his money.

A simple refund isnt really enough in the case of complete failure. What about compensation for the loss of donor grafts etc?


Many of these HT folk routinely lie, use camera trickery and fraudulent claims to get as lure as many fish as possible. Often, they will perform HTs on guys who are clearly unsuitable or very young, condemning them to lifelong regret, humiliation and financial hardship. Naturally, they wont refund money back unless made to, through the courts.

Its like your explaining my life, I was 22 and a NW1.5 with no diffuse thinning, and they were willing to take a strip from the back of my head for 250 or less grafts. I was young and naive and didnt have a clue, I thought my hair was gonna be like Brad Pitts afterwards, WRONG!
