Dear Dr. Ziering,

This is Bill Freen from Extreme Makeover, Season Three. I was in your office on Friday, October 8th, a day that changed my life forever. I cannot thank you enough. When I first started losing my hair, I thought it wouldn’t be so bad to have a receding hairline. A few more years went by and I became more and balder from the crown towards the front of my scalp. Once it got to this level of baldness, I knew my only choice was to just shave my head and be bald. I actually felt my scalp and the shape of my head for the first time. What I discovered was that I have a very pointed or cone-shaped cranium. I thought to myself there is no way possible that I can be bald with this shape of head.

Although adults are not verbal with their thoughts and feelings toward abnormalities, you can sure see it in their eyes. For many years now, I could feel and see friends, coworkers and complete strangers sneaking a glance at my cone-shaped baldness. It has been 24 hours a day, 7 days per week thought in the back of my mind. My hair was so thin and just wild and unmanageable that is was common for people to ask me: Is it windy outside today? Or did you drive with your window rolled down. I’d just smile and laugh it off and say, no that’s just my hair; there’s nothing I can do about it and everybody would laugh. On the inside however for me, it was torture. It made my shy and introverted. I did not really realize what had occurred for me that day in your office.

I remember you telling me, Okay Bill, you are done and you are going to look great. I then remember looking in the mirror and smiling. I was so happy. It did not really hit me yet though. The minute you started taking the after photos, I tried hard to fight back the tears. But it was in that moment that I realized that all the years that I worried about being bald were gone now. That’s when I let loose emotionally and could not control the tears. I was so choked up; I could not even speak.

I don’t think that I ever got to express my complete gratitude for the gift you have given me and how you have changed my life. You will never really understand what you have done for me. For that I am extremely grateful. I have no idea how I could ever repay you for this gift. It is just more than words can say.

Your staff is incredible. I don’t how you found all the people on your staff, but they are like angels. It is a rarity these days to find a few people with such concern and compassion. And yet, you have a whole staff exactly like that. A special thanks to every individual on your staff.

And finally, your sense of humor sure makes a potentially stressful situation much easier to endure. I thank you all eternally from my heart.

I started losing my hair in College. My family has a history of hair loss on my father and mothers side and I was determined to reverse the cycle. I began using Rogaine for about 5 years and then started taking Propecia. The loss was minimized but it still continued so I actually gave up on taking my medication as I figured it was inevitable, I would just accept my thinning hair.

This changed when my wife researched hair loss restoration options, and we were watching TV and saw some of the Extreme Makeover programs. Living in Las Vegas, I was excited to know that I could go meet the staff and learn about the process. The consultation was very informative and gave me the confidence to have the procedure. Almost a year to the day from my procedure, I am thrilled with the results. I get positive comments from friends who know me before and those who I haven’t seen in some time and they are always amazed at the results as I am. I would strongly encourage others to consider having this done as it will change your life in such a positive way. I personally would like to thank the team in Las Vegas for being so professional and the medical staff for working their magic as you changed my life and I am very grateful to all of you.

I have had great results with Dr. Ziering that exceeded my expectations. He created a natural looking hairline that has improved a number of things in my life, not to mention my self confidence. One of the best investments I’ve made.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Ziering and I’m so satisfied with the result. The team was great and their goal was to make sure you are comfortable. I thought it will be a very painful procedure but I actually went shopping right after I’m done with minimal pain!
I recommend Dr. Ziering to many of my friends in Qatar and my cousin is planning on getting a transplant procedure after he saw my result.

From the moment I walked into their offices, Dr. Ziering and his staff presented an honest assessment of my hair loss and how it can be recreated to look completely natural using an array of different methods including Propecia with my current Rogaine treatment. They discussed the donor procedure and set realistic expectations of what I could expect as my donor hair follicles grew out. We were able to work within my budget to do a procedure that helped to rebuild a hairline and to strengthen the overall thickness of my hair. Ten months later I had a full head of hair that seamlessly blended into the existing hair and an overall healthier look thanks to the Propecia. Amazing! The overall look almost a year later far exceeds my expectations. Thank you Dr. Ziering and everyone at Ziering Medical.

I first noticed my hair loss in my mid-twenties. I will never forget my boss (who was 33 at the time and with a full head of hair) who said to me while on a business trip, “you sure are getting thin up there.” Although his comments were completely harmless, it was the first time I started to look differently at my appearance. I could see the thinning in my hair. Over the next four years, I continued to watch it disappear. In my late twenties, I started to look more closely at my options. After visiting a host of medical facilities about restoration, I was left with no direction.

In 2003, my medical doctor, who was a huge proponent against hair restoration, went to a presentation by Dr. Craig Ziering. After listening to the presentation, he suggested that I contact Dr. Ziering. So, I did just that. I visited the Ziering Medical offices in Newport Beach and after the short visit was convinced that if I were to have the procedure done…it would be with Dr. Ziering.

One year later I had the procedure done. Dr. Ziering’s medical staff went above and beyond the typical medical experience by providing me with unbelievable care. In fact, the day is almost a blur. The procedure was fast and pain free. I took a Friday off to have the procedure done and was back at work the following Monday.

I am now two years post-op and am still very happy with the results. I went from having no hair on the front of my head to having not just hair, but NATURAL looking hair. I would do this procedure again with no changes.

If considering hair restoration, I would look no further than Ziering Medical. If you want the best care, best experience and most importantly, new hair…Ziering Medical is the place for you.

Mike Caudill

After spending the better part of fifteen years of my life feeling self conscious about my hair loss and doing anything possible to hide it, Dr. Ziering and his professional, friendly staff were able to give me a comfort level I had not experienced since my early twenties with the hair restoration surgery.

The surgery is something I had considered for years and my only regret is waiting as long as I did to have the procedure done. It has been 20 months since my procedure and I can honestly say that walking into Dr. Ziering’s office the morning of my surgery was the best decision I’ve ever made. It’s not just the fact that I am 34 years old and have more hair now than when I was 21, it’s the confidence it brings into all aspects of life. Professional, personal, romantic, you name it. When you are confident about your appearance, life flows so much better!

About 4-6 months after my surgery when my new hair actually started growing to the point where I could see a noticeable difference, I swore even then that it was one of the greatest decisions I had ever made… little did I know that it would continue to grow even thicker and fuller. My results are better than I could have ever hoped for.

To Dr. Ziering, his technicians and to my consultant Lee Millard, thank you all so much. You have truly changed my life for the better. I invite anyone who is thinking about having the procedure done with Dr. Z who may still be skeptical to give me a call with any question. I would be more than happy to share my experience with you and give you my opinion on why if you are looking for the best surgeon for your hair transplant, your search has ended. Thanks again Dr. Ziering!

My hair loss was progressing, and I came to Ziering Medical in November 2005 very depressed. Upon meeting Dr. Ziering, he was very up front and honest. He gave me a very honest idea of what I could expect. He also advised me to immediately begin taking Propecia and Rogaine. The staff at Ziering have been very helpful and always willing to take the time to answer my questions.

I decided to have my first surgery in December of 2005. Dr. Phipps, one of Dr. Ziering’s Associate Surgeons, handled my procedure. I found her to be very concerned and informative. Since that time, things have changed for me for the better. The Propecia and Rogaine have increased my hair thickness dramatically, and the hair growth from my surgery is just beginning. My confidence and quality of life have really increased.

I would highly recommend Ziering Medical to anyone experiencing hair loss.

Jeff Schuman

My hair started to fall out when I was very young – at 18. By the time I was in my 30’s it was noticeable and painful. I lived with the emotional pain and continued losing hair into my 50’s. One day my daughter told me about Dr. Ziering and the hair transplant procedure, and I ended up having two procedures. It completely changed my life. I feel like I have been reborn. I can actually style my hair instead of trying to do a “cover up”.

Dr. Ziering and his staff couldn’t have been nicer, and I am eternally grateful for this “gift”. Every time I see Dr. Ziering, I thank him, as my eyes well up with tears. I can’t express in words how this has changed my life for the better.

I was highly impressed with the professionalism and the attention to detail throughout the entire Ziering staff. The technology for the extraction procedure is advanced and efficient, and the staff’s top priority is keeping the patient comfortable. Dr. Ziering is very skilled, and designed a flawless hairline.

Dear Dr. Ziering,

If you’re fortunate enough to outlive your hair, one day you will look in the mirror and some fraud will appear, some how displacing the good looking dude you used to be. At that moment you realize your fortunes have changed. Have I suddenly become irrelevant? I’m no longer a CEO. Somehow my children are middle aged; my ex wife owns the house, and ladies who used to smile at me as we crossed paths, now stare at my head and cross the street.

In today’s Los Angeles Times sports section, I saw a quarter page ad for Ziering Medical. In it Dr. Ziering says, I meet people everyday who feel marginalized because of their hair loss. He continues they want to regrow their hair to look younger or to have freedom from having to start every day trying to figure out how to disguise their hair loss. He ends with reasons to invest in a hair restoration which include career, social, or just plain vanity. For me, he hit the trifecta. I did it for ALL those reasons. And it is oh so true to have to actually look at myself in the mirror… not my favorite thing… and try to figure how I’m going to reconfigure those few hairs into something more meaningful. When I finally came to the realization that nothing I did made any difference, I went to see Dr. Ziering.
The “Doc” is a very cool guy. As he was marking up my head like DaVinci with a “sharpie,” I fleetingly had the sense my balding head was his Sistine Chapel. It was obvious that he really enjoyed what he was doing, and it must be infectious because everybody associated with Ziering had that same attitude: happy, friendly, caring and professional. Every aspect of the procedure, before, during and after was as joyful as it could be considering what was happening to my head.

Previously, I had met with two other hair restoration specialists. For reasons I don’t really understand, I never had the same confidence level with them as I had with Dr. Ziering. It has only been two weeks since the procedure, so I can’t say I suddenly have “Elvis” hair. However, when I went back to Ziering Medical to have my sutures removed I met an older gentleman… probably my age. He nearly did have “Elvis” hair. He had just had his second procedure. He looked terrific and he knew it. I have no qualms about having a second procedure next year when I can offer up more donor hair.

In closing I just can’t imagine a better experience than Ziering Medical provided. If you’re reading this, you are probably follicle challenged. Do yourself a favor; let Dr. Ziering give you the almost magical gift of hair restoration.

It is funny that just a year ago my lack of a hairline was a daily concern and disappointment to me. Now I have a hairline and I take my full head of hair for granted. I look great and feel great! No one except for the lady who styles my hair knew that I had work done. This was my biggest worry. It was so much fun to watch my hair slowly return, growing back in such a subtle way that nobody knew. I have been asked if I was styling it in a different manner or if I had a new stylist.

A year ago I read your testimonials and wondered if they were legitimate. And now I have just given one myself. I am very pleased with the results and would highly recommend your services.

Today is day six after surgery and I can’t help but reflect on my unexpected experience. This letter is my expression of the deep trust and awe which I now have in all your abilities and technical skills.

The support team should all be proud of themselves and in my opinion deserve a raise or at minimum be treated by the team leader to a special meal of their choice for working beyond expectations with such great attitudes.

I especially enjoyed the sound of your laughter in the hall while waiting for me to return from a break (which you never took while working on me). Again, I can’t say enough about your humor, spirit and wonderful attitude that made my day unexpectedly special.

Dr. Ziering, you are truly at the top of your game – and it shows.

Jeffrey “No More Hat” Rodriguez

I just wanted to take a moment to convey my deepest appreciation for everything you did for me last Tuesday.

Thinking about this entire process over the past month make me nervous especially since we were going to be filmed live for Fox News, but you and you staff made an uncomfortable situation beyond relaxing for me. The professionalism that you and your staff displayed was unequivocally perfect.

Upon seeing the work you performed, I was instantly impress by the care and detail of the graft placement. More importantly, you did exactly what you said you would regarding density in certain areas, creating a natural looking hairline zone. I can tell when my hair grows in, it will blend perfectly. I am anxiously awaiting all my new hair to come in.

Dr. Ziering, you truly are a talented individual in this area of cosmetic surgery. I am honored to be associated with you and will certainly recommend (and in fact, already have recommended) your services to friends and business acquaintances.

I am physician and surgeon and rarely am I in a position of evaluating a fellow physician from the perspective of a patient. However from the initial consultation to the actual surgical procedure, I was extremely comforted by Dr. Ziering and his staffs’ courteousness and professionalism. They are true experts in the business of patient care and even I will be incorporating some of their humanism and compassion into my own practice. I have to congratulate Dr. Ziering and his great staff for the compassion and superior surgical care extended to me.

Dr. Harrison Lee
Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgeon

I chose to have my hair transplantation procedure done by Ziering Medical and Dr. Craig Ziering after consultations with all of the “big name” specialists in the Los Angeles area because I felt more confident in placing my head in the hands of Dr. Ziering than anyone else. And Dr. Ziering did not disappoint!

The results were nothing short of amazing and exceeded my high expectations. Dr. Ziering is truly an artist of his craft – placing transplanted hairs in areas that gave me the appearance of having my full head of hair back. I’m so delighted with the outcome of my procedure that I carry a before picture in my wallet to show anyone interested in hair transplantation. It makes me smile when people look at the picture and than at my head and say things like, “unbelievable” or “incredible”. The best part is that no one could ever tell that I had the procedure. I’m extremely grateful to Dr. Ziering and Ziering Medical.

I am 39 years old and began losing the hairline on the crown of my head a few years ago. In addition my front hairline has also been receding slowly the past few years, but that hasn’t bothered me as much. I was recently given the opportunity to be one of the first patients to receive a long hair transplant from Dr. Ziering. He performed the procedure of the frontal hairline and brought my receding hairline down about 1/2 to one full inch. I must say the results are amazing. The long hair transplant was so beneficial for me, because I could see immediately what my hair line will look like once the hairs fall out and grow back a few months later. When I went to a Christmas party just a week later most of my friends noticed a difference in how I looked and asked me if I had changed my hair style. They all agreed that it did make me look younger which was great news to hear. I think Dr. Ziering is definitely on to something revolutionary with this new procedure.

The obvious benefit of this procedure is to see post-op full hair growth in the transplant area. In addition the hair stayed in for about 3-4 weeks after the procedure. I’ve had not problems or complications and now 3 months after the procedure, many hairs have grown in to full length while others are still in the growing process. Though I was a little hesitant at first about having a procedure, I would highly recommend Dr. Ziering to anyone that is considering having a transplant. Just sitting with him in the consultation you can tell that he is a visionary and an artist in his discipline. And to top that, his staff is a group of the most amazing people that you could ever meet in a medical office. They made me feel like I was the only patient there. In today’s busy environment you often feel like just a number when going to a medical office. Not at Ziering. These people are great.

Thank you so much!!

I wanted to shoot you a quick email thanking you and Dr. Ziering for your help with my recent hair transplant procedure. I look forward to seeing the results materialize over the next year.

It was very inspiring to see the medical team’s commitment to excellence and artistry. Dr. Ziering has built an excellent medical team. I also have to thank you for your personal help answering all of my questions throughout the weeks leading up to my procedure. You made me feel as though I was receiving the VIP treatment which I appreciated.

Again, I want to thank you and Dr. Ziering for making this an enjoyable process. Without question, my expectations were exceeded!

Jeff M.

It is very difficult to put into words how happy I am for choosing Ziering Medical for my hair transplantation. I had worn hair systems or toupees for almost 15 years, and being a Golf Professional it was a struggle to keep them looking the way I would like them to look. In those 15 years I could not even tell you how much money I spent on new systems, and upkeep to make myself feel comfortable, with the help of Lee Millard and Dr. Craig Ziering convincing me that the procedure would be not only painless, but would not interfere with any of my daily activities I choose to have the procedure done. Not only once but twice, I now have my own hair growing from my own scalp and it looks fantastic. Dr. Craig Ziering and Lee Millard thank you VERY VERY much for helping me make one of the best decisions of my life.

Andy Anderson

It took me a couple of years to finally decided I wanted to try something other than pills to correct my hair loss. From the first visit with Dr. Ziering and his staff I was impressed. It just improved from there. All of the people involved with my particular case were just terrific. What a staff! This company GETS customer service! So what about the outcome? It’s been just about 5 months as of this writing. I could not be more pleased. I have hair! If I knew I was going to be this satisfied I would have honestly paid double. I still might.

These guys rock!
