While I can’t cheat time, I can certainly look my best living each day going forward. Thanks to Dr. Z and Ziering Medical staff, that’s possible now.
I first started to deny losing my hair when I was in my early 20s. Waking up every morning to my precious hairs all over my pillow was devastating, but still I was in denial.
It wasn’t until several years later that I held a mirror over my head and saw skin showing through my hair I thought, “I’m going bald.” It started at the crown and very slowly (as to torture me) worked its way to the front, completely wiping out my hair line leaving me with this little embarrassing island of hair, ab (...)
I began noticing a significant hair loss about a year ago. I was losing a lot hair when I washed my hair and found a lot of hair in the drain after rinsing. I also found hair on the floor after brushing and blow –drying my hair. There were some spots that were actually bald and I was afraid I was going to continue losing all of my hair. I was panic stricken and began to look for help. I found an article about the Ziering Medical Clinic and I immediately called for an appointment. The (...)
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.
This whole experience has truly changed my life. I had 2,700 grafts (approximately 6,700 hairs) transplanted to the front and top of my head. Finally, I have the self-esteem back that I started losing twelve years ago. Dr. Ziering, who I know has to be the best surgeon in the world, should really give it up and become a comedian. He had me laughing so hard that I never became nervous about the actual procedure. Dr. Ziering has helped me turn my life around in such a positive way.
I first saw my scalp 3 1/2 years ago. I freaked out. I’m an actor and a red head, so there is a lot of identity in my hair. I did Propecia for 3 years and that helped a lot, but on my last film, photo’s showed I waslosing the battle with my hairline. I had to go all the was or accept the loss. I don’t give up without a fight, so I called every guy I knew and was surprised how many had done a hair transplant. They all told me it came down to the surgeon’s technique, microscope dissection an (...)
I have suffered from hair loss since I was eighteen years old, went to see Dr. Ziering who was referred to me by my skin-care doctor. Not too excited about a surgical procedure, I hesitated and put off the appointment far too long. Once I brought myself to their office, I was so sorry that I hadn’t been there long before.
I was greeted by Kelly, a very warm and caring lady who spoke with me about preliminary things. She made me feel as though she was there as long I needed to speak. I n (...)
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 satisfi (...)
I first noticed that I was losing my hair at 20 years old. It was devastating when going out with friends and trying to meet girls. I spent a couple of years researching hair restoration procedures and going to many different doctors. I decided to go with Dr. Ziering. The staff was so kind, and the day of the procedure was a relaxing day away from my stressful life.
About 10 months after the procedure when I would meet girls out at the bars or clubs and I would take off my hat, they wer (...)
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 (...)
I just wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for a very pleasant experience. I appreciate you and your able and courteous staff. A young lady called me on the evening of my surgery inquiring of my condition, satisfying herself that I was O.K. made me feel like you folks really care and go above and beyond even the highest care. I guess I could summarize my impression of you and your staff as genuinely outstanding and professional. Thanks again.
I wanted to send a note of thanks to you all for a wonderful, pain free graft day last Wed Sept 17. My grafts are doing great and I have had no ill effects at all. I am so in awe of the wonderful working relationships you all have with one another. You are always laughing and no matter how early in the day, always in top form. What a wonderful working environment and I know that it makes Dr. Z feel great to be around that kind of atmosphere to work also. My thanks go first to Dr. Z who is (...)
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, (...)
My daughter began losing much of her hair due to illness. She was in high school, so needless to say, it was an extremely difficult time. After a few years, her health was restored and her hair started to grow back. She wanted it thicker, so we went to Dr. Ziering. He was honest and not anxious to perform the procedure before recommending alternative treatments which were much less expensive.
After treatment for about 6 months, she improved dramatically. Dr. Ziering did not believe that (...)
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 recei (...)
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thanks to you I can greet the world with self-confidence once again!
My journey from “bald” to “beautiful” began about 3 year ago, when my confidence level was disappearing along with my hair. Wigs and hairpieces helped but I wanted a permanent solution. Why waste all that hair on the back of my head when it could be moved to where it was needed! Thus the “hair transplant” research began concluding in my decision that Dr. Ziering was the answer to my dilemma! Confidence in his artistry and technique paid off since my transplanted hair looks terrific! In one (...)
I was 63 years old and I noticed that I was losing my hair in the front. Being a dentist and a dental school educator, I am in front of the public every day. I did not want to look old, so I investigated hair restoration.
That was eight years ago and in that period, I have had four hair restoration surgeries at Ziering Medical with Dr. James Calder. I highly recommend him to anyone. My surgery last month in Newport Beach was painless. I am 71 years old, but I look 10 years younger thank (...)
Dr. Ziering has perfected the art of hair transplant; his technique has gained world wide acclaim for the most natural look ever. If any of our clientele has ever contemplated a hair transplant procedure I strongly recommend that you contact Dr. Ziering’s staff for more information. Over the years I have made it a practice not to endorse any product or procedure unless I have personally tried and am fully committed to that product or procedure. So it is my pleasure to say that as a colleag (...)
I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to Dr. Ziering and his knowledgeable staff for providing me with a new outlook toward the future. As a young woman, it was difficult for me to contend with hair loss. I started to feel very uncomfortable out in public and even with close friends and family. I did not know how I was going to address my situation. I thought about hairpieces but did not see them as a permanent solution. Then a friend mentioned getting a hair transplant. I thought (...)
Making the decision after thirty years of wearing a hair system was an easy one. I investigated three leaders in the field of hair transplantation and Ziering overwhelmingly received the highest marks.
After my first procedure I continued to wear a system. My stylist, who was employed by a competitor of Ziering, commented that she didn’t think her team could do as good-a-job as Ziering had done.
That confirmed to me my decision to choose Ziering was right.
The physician and team p (...)
I started losing my hair at 19. It was very distressing as I always had full, long hair and it was a way of expressing myself creatively. My experience with the Ziering Medical staff and surgeon has been a welcome relief. All were very warm, pleasant, helpful and professional. There’s still not much said or talked about genetic female hair loss especially at a young age. It has affected my self esteem and I have been made to feel guilty in the past. Knowledge is most definitely power and i (...)
One and a half years ago I had my first surgery with Dr Ziering. I was very scared. I was extremely surprised how easy it was. Now, I am super happy because my hair looks so much better now than it did before the surgery. My goal was to have hair like a lion! I love Dr Ziering and his staff! After many years of looking, I found the best!
For over one year, I gave very hard consideration and thought in having a hair transplant for my aging, balding head. I made up my mind over 9 months ago to go forward and get one.-Next step- Who am I going to allow to work on me? “Me” meaning, no one but the best should be doing my transplant. After considerable research and conversations with many people…people who did not use Dr Craig Ziering and some that did. It’s obvious I chose correctly! Dr. Z performed his magic on me. We went thr (...)
After being on the hair sidelines for many years, I decided to research the new techniques available. After meeting with several doctors and researching all of the options, the ARTAS Robotic FUE procedure made the most sense for me. I like to change up my hairstyles – short in the summer and longer in the winter.
When I was doing my comparisons, the ARTAS always ended up on top. After the procedure, I didn’t take any pain medication at all. Now that it’s been a year after my procedure, (...)
I met Dr. Craig Ziering following a near decade-long battle with hair loss and countless unsuccessful remedies, provided to me by numerous physicians in the field of hair restoration. Due to a slew of past negative experiences and after having been told by another physicians that the best solution for my degree of hair loss was surgery, I came to Dr. Ziering for a second opinion. To my surprise, he presented me with another option: laser beams. I listened to Dr. Ziering and with some hesit (...)
My experience with Dr. Ziering was excellent on every level. The initial personal consultation by his staff and then the surgical procedure performed by him and his assistants was with the highest level of professionalism and thoroughness.
Hard to imagine, but they actually make the one day procedure reasonably enjoyable by their very personal attention and encouraging you to watch box office movies of your choice throughout most of the day! The recovery period is very well explained an (...)
I begin to notice that my hair was thinning approximately 8 years ago and decided to become proactive and change my hair style to locks to prevent further thinning. About 4 years, I developed an itchy scalp and more thinning along with boils like pimples on my scalp. I saw a dermatologist about my itchy scalp and the thinning. He prescribed oral and cream medications that temporarily help with the itch but did nothing for the thinning.
The itch disappeared for a season and continued to (...)
Now that I have eyebrows, I feel like my face is complete and framed! I don’t have to hide my face anymore by growing long bangs. My self esteem is better. Thank you Ziering Medical. Your entire staff is professional and cordial.
My experience with Dr. Ziering and his team exceeded every expectation I had. My hair started to grow within 3 months of the procedure.
I have a public-facing profession and many people I encounter don’t even know how old I am. I have been told that I look 10 -15 years younger. I applaud and salute the Ziering Medical Team! Thank You!
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 (...)
I was very pleased with the cosmetic results of my surgery and I was equally pleased with the caring service of the medical center’s staff. The procedure was painless. I was given pain medication, but I did not even require it post surgery. The procedure room was antiseptic but very comfortable. I was able to watch three videos, listen to some music and have a great lunch. I would like to thank Dr. Ziering and his staff for their caring professional demeanor. They made a day in surgery, st (...)
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 Ti (...)
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 (...)
This has really been a great experience and it started with you! Dr. Ziering has a great team! Dr. Phipps is very funny! I love her sense of humor! Liz & Paola were great! They were both so kind and considerate and tried to make me as comfortable as possible throughout the day! Dr. Ziering has a great bedside manner and I really appreciated his kindness and his confidence in the results I will achieve.
Another happy patient.

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.
A few years after menopause, I started noticing a thinning of my hair on the front and crown. At first, I did not pay much attention but as time went on I noticed more thinning, and I was having trouble styling my hair to cover my scalp. I felt very self-conscious, and I felt it made me look much older. After doing a great deal of research into possible remedies, I decided that hair grafting was the only option I would find satisfactory. I looked at many different hair restoration doctors, (...)
I finally have my personality back! When I started losing my hair, I avoided mirrors and cameras. My smile was forced and I lost a lot of my sense of humor. I had never realized how important having hair was until I actually lost it and had to look at my self. Now, six months after my transplant my hair looks thicker and when the wind messes it up, I can’t see my white scalp shining through. It’s wonderful to have my confidence back and to be able to wear my hair in different styles again. (...)
Dr. Phipps, Lee and Staff,
Just a quick note to let you know how happy I am with the way I was treated during the procedure last Monday. Your entire staff was professional yet not stuffy. Everyone was kind and caring. The cleanliness of the procedure room was most impressive. I was never nervous or hesitant about a thing.
Please know that you’re welcome to have your prospective clients contact me if they have any questions or hesitations about the procedure, your facility or just wan (...)
I just want to thank Dr. Ziering and his staff. I am five months post surgery and getting very noticeable results. The proof was to hear my wife say, ‘it really filled in!’
It was personally gratifying to hear her say these words because she was a non-believer five months ago. I knew that the art and science of hair restoration would get me the results I was looking for.

I wanted to let you know how pleased I have been with my decision to move forward with the procedure. It has been three weeks since I came in, and I am doing great. Not a soul has noticed anything – not even my brother in law who has had 5 or 6 separate hair transplant procedures himself.
As you recall, after the procedure we went down to San Diego for a week, which was the perfect time to be out of the limelight and to wear a hat for a few days. I did tell my son in San Digeo what I (...)
“Why an eyebrow transplant at age 68? Simply put; to remove some stress from my life. The happiness I get from my eyebrows is an added bonus.
Going to the dentist, the doctor, trying on clothes, and even answering the doorbell was stressful. I was always worried that my pencil eyebrows would be smeared or worse rubbed off. Since I was an eyebrowless person, I was always very self conscious and embarrassed by the thought of not having eyebrows. I was on my way to the ER for treatment, an (...)
I went to see Dr. Ziering because I liked the website and what he was trying to do frankly. No referral, I took a risk and I was right: I am thrilled with every part of the process from initial meeting to plan to time with Craig to the actual surgery, follow up and results. Results even better than I thought. EVERYONE says how natural the look is.
I noticed gradual thinning and hair recession over the last 10 years. I checked several different approaches and decided a hair transplant was the only permanent solution. I then investigated several transplant doctors and decided on Dr. Ziering for his great reputation.
The process was extremely patient-friendly, from the first consultation through surgery and follow up afterwards. I would definitely make the same decision again. The results have been and excellent and worth every penny!
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 no (...)
I came into your office not knowing exactly what to expect. I had scheduled approximately 1,200-1,400 grafts, and I thought that this might be enough to cover the back area of my head. My greatest concern was that the hair transplant would look completely natural and undetectable. After meeting with Dr. Ziering and discussing what could be done, I was immediately impressed with the professional yet comfortable atmosphere both he and the staff provided. All of my questions were answered and (...)
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 strength (...)
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 (...)
I debated for some time with great reservation whether to proceed or not with hair transplant surgery. My greatest concern as a practicing physician was that my patients might notice that I underwent hair restoration. I returned to my normal, daily routine almost immediately after my procedure. Much to my delight no one, not even my colleagues, were able to tell that I had anything done. My experience with the procedure has been simple, painless, and virtually unnoticeable. Dr. Ziering and (...)
I just wanted to congratulate you on a job well done. I had surgery about one week ago, and it was as smooth as can be. The staff was warm, well educated on the entire process, and nurturing throughout the procedure. Dr. Ziering was great and the procedure was quick and without much discomfort. As we all know, a picture is worth a thousand words. I will keep you updated on my progress.
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 ye (...)
I am going in for my third transplant operation from Ziering Medical August 15, 2009, and I can tell you that these procedures are the best investment that I have ever made for myself. It has improved my appearance 100% and makes me look years younger. For the record, the previous two procedures that Ziering Medical had performed on me were highly successful, as well as fully natural. You cannot and I repeat, you can not detect anywhere in my scalp that hair transplanting was performed.
I’ve worked in Daytime Television for over twenty years. As an actor who is in front of the camera my hair has to be its best. I spent years searching for the doctor whose work could not be detected. Dr. Ziering is the Leonardo da Vinci of the hair restoration industry, having the artistic touch that no other doctor can match. I defy anyone to delineate between my transplanted micro grafts and my existing hair. My hairdresser of twenty years could not tell that I had had the procedure. To (...)
I had my hair transplant done by Dr. Ziering in August 2004. My hair had been thinning over the last 5-7 years or so, and I had a golf ball size spot in the front of my hair (at my bang line). I was so self-conscious of it, and it was becoming more and more difficult to hide with hair styles. I was delighted to meet Dr. Ziering and learn I was a candidate for transplant. The procedure itself was a piece of cake, and a very relaxing day all in all. I watched three movies, took a nap, had lu (...)
I would like to give my thanks and appreciation to Dr. Ziering and his staff. I recently underwent a procedure at his Newport Beach location and I must congratulate the staff and the doctor on their professionalism. They made a difficult situation much easier to live through. This was not my first time undergoing this procedure, but it was the best experience thus far. I would certainly recommend Dr. Ziering to my friends and family. My prior experiences made me feel that I was just anothe (...)
Dr. Ziering is a prince of a man and an individual that listens intensely to your questions and without hesitation gives you a straight answer. I also enjoyed his humor during my surgery. He is an exceptional surgeon and human being.
READY FOR THE NEXT CHAPTER OF YOUR LIFE?
