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.

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, strange to say, a most enjoyable experience.


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 return and became worse. The itch was horrible the first 9 months of 2007, it was constant. I would sometime scratch my scalp raw. Also, the thinning became more noticeable. I had bald spots around the edges and two bald spots about the size of a quarter at the top of my head.

I needed to find the source of my problem instead of a temporary solution. I was referred to Dr. Glenn by a lady who had only attended the symposium in September of 2006. I made an appointment to see Dr. Glenn who performed several tests to determine the root cause to my scalp problem. She was able to properly diagnose my problem and got rid of the constant itch.

She suggested that I cut my locks off because of the irritation. I trimmed them a little. As the scalp problem began to get better, I became very self conscience and embarrassed about my bald spots. That was all I could think about. I would wear my hair up to disguise the bald areas. I felt that everyone could see them. The thinning began to affected me psychologically. All I could think about was how prominence the bald spots would appear if I cut my locks off. Everyone would know that I was losing my hair.

I spoke with Dr. Glenn about my concerns. She helped me to feel comfortable and suggested that I attend her symposium to learn of ways to deal with my problem. I attended the symposium this past September where I learn that my scalp problem and hair loss was not unique. Many women were dealing with the same or similar issues. I also learned that a hair transplant could be an alternative for my problem. I did some research and called Dr. Glenn and Malaya with questions based on my research. They were very helpful and referred me to Dr. Ziering.

I met with Dr. Ziering and Jason who provided information about their procedure and what to expect. My greatest concern was that the hair transplant would look natural and be painless. They answered all of my questions and gave me hope that I was a good candidate for the transplant. They assured me that the area would look natural and the procedure would be painless. Also, I was extremely impressed with photos of the work they had done on other black candidates. They made me feel that they really understood how I felt and that they were really concerned about my problem. I left feeling more encouraged and hopeful that a large part of my embarrassment would be corrected soon. On the day of the transplant, Dr. Ziering and his staff were very patience and explained the process to me again to comfort and reassure me that I had nothing to worry about. The procedure was painless. His staff was warm and friendly. I watched movies, ate, talked and laughed at Dr. Ziering’s jokes. Within several hours it was done. The time passed quickly, it took about 7 to 9 hours for me but it really did not seem that long. I was surprise at the amount of time that had past because I was so comfortable. I was given medications to help with any minor discomforts and swelling during the following week. In January, the third month after the transplant, I cut off my locks and begin to wear my cut hair very shot to reduce any noticeable bald spots. It has been 6 months since the transplants and I do not have any bald spots.

I now feel more confident about my hair and I am very thankful for Dr. Glen and Dr. Ziering and their staff for assisting me through this difficult process and helping my re-gain my self confidence.

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 weren’t disappointed any more. Before the hair restoration procedure, they were a little bummed. I would talk to them and my personality would get them, but then I would take off the hat, and I would lose them. Now when I take off the hat the momentum keeps going. Thanks again Dr. Ziering and Staff!

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 and the subjective view of what looks natural. When I saw the “Ziering Whorl” on their website, it looked natural so I went in and had the procedure done over the holidays. When I first saw my buddies around day 5, none of them could believe how many grafts were done and how good I looked. They could barely notice any swelling. I’m excited to see my hair grow in and replace insecurity with confidence. I’m a guy and I don’t like being consumed with my hair, it’s boring. So now that its gonna come back, I can go back to being a guy and not care about my hair. Thanks!

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.

Thank you SO much! It was a great experience! I have had many compliments from my friends and family, and my wife loves the new and improved model. I recommend anyone thinking of having a hair transplant to choose Ziering Medical. Dr.Phipps did a wonderful job! Thank you again.

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 have very little scarring so I can cut my hair any length. And my hairline is completely natural and full.

I love my father, but I just didn’t want his hairline anymore.


I was impressed with Ziering Medical during my consultation. All alternatives for hair growth were sincerely covered and surgery was not presented as the only alternative.


I had been thinking of getting a hair transplant as I was thinning out rapidly. I was recommended by a good friend to see Dr Glen Ross; the exact comment was he is a talented surgeon and a great guy. I was skeptical of surgery. I was scared people would notice I had a hair transplant done, and it would look worse than losing my hair. I had my consult with Dr Ross and he patiently told me what to expect; pros and cons to the surgery. I felt very comfortable with him, but still nervous to proceed with the surgery. I decided to go for it and get about 1600 grafts done, and I am very glad I did. Dr Ross was amazing and the results are really impressive. No one has any idea that anything was done. Hairline is improved and I am happy to be brushing more hair on my head. I couldn’t be happier with Dr Ross; great guy and a gifted surgeon.


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.


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!

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 never felt rushed or felt like there was something else she needed to tend to. She gave me some reassurances and made me feel like she understood my worries. Then, Dr. Phipps came in and gave me all the”real” stuff that I should consider. Her explanations were clear, helpful and she definitely made me more excited about the results. Then came the smiling face of Dr. Ziering and I immediately knew that I was in the right place. After he tousled my hair around and made me laugh a little, we were on our way to paperwork.

Before I could finish, I called my husband and said that he had to take care of his bald spot and that I had found the perfect place. He and I ended up having surgery on the same day. We had so much fun eating lunch together and making fun of each other’s “footies”. It’s something we will never forget.

The staff was attentive and friendly, there was no discomfort and there was never a dull moment with movies, music and just visiting with the staff. The day seemed to pass very quickly and we were on our way. Then we just sat and waited for our hair to grow in…together. I love my life!!!

I hope anyone reading this will definitely consider the Ziering Medical group. I wouldn’t consider any other facility.

Thank you to my “new” best friends.

Marilyn (and Joe too)

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.

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!

Paula C.

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 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!

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

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 she needed transplants. He told her that he would do the transplants if she wanted, but she was beautiful without them. He was encouraging and he really helped her without surgery.

Anonymous Mother
Mission Viejo, CA

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, about the size of a half dollar at the very center top front of my head known in the medical profession as a “tuff.”
And life was just that, ‘TUFF’ because all my friends, family, and peers still had their hair and didn’t have to rely on tight hair cuts every 7-10 days with a hat to go along with it. Needless to say, this was a huge confidence killer in so many obvious ways. It wasn’t until I found myself being asked to take off my hat on a ride at an amusement park and seeing the negative looks from those around me, that I decided to take action to try and correct my not so amusing problem.
So after nearly 30 years of tight hair cuts, hats, low confidence, and unfriendly looks, I decided to make the call to Dr. Craig Ziering- which turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Dr. Ziering was professional, polite, patient with great people skills, and extremely understanding of my needs and expectations. Dr. Ziering took a realistic approach as to what he could and could not do to help me as a unique individual with my particular challenge. He never made promises he couldn’t keep, and was never pushy. Having done my homework on the subject of hair restoration, it was an easy choice to go with a man who is a pioneer in his field of expertise with many years of experience and satisfied customers, coupled with a glow of confidence from the moment he enters the room.
I spent years telling myself it was alright to be bald and people would just have to except me for who I am. The flaw in my thinking is that I couldn’t even except myself for who I was -a prematurely balding man. Life for me is WAY! better with hair than it was without it because now when I speak to people I look them in the eye, not down and away.
They say a picture is worth a 1000 words so rather than try to convince anyone as to why they should consider a similar procedure, I’ll just let my before and after pics do all the talking…and yes, I wish I would have done it sooner.

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 through the procedure in February of ’05…over 3,200 grafts transplanted, perfectly! The results are in as of today, August 29th…only 6 months after this happening and I am the happiest man on earth! I have better results than anticipated. In fact, I am ecstatic with the preliminary results. I feel 15 years younger, more confident with life overall, jubilant…I’m a new man! I know I look better and obviously have never felt better about myself and still have about 6 more months of anticipated hair growth to fill in. Dr Craig Ziering is by far the best of the best that do this procedure. Last but not least, the cost for my procedure was bargain…a bargain deal I made in heaven. Really though, it was in Dr. Z’s Beverly Hills office with a staff that made me feel right at home…down to earthiness is all I can say! I can’t wait to go back and visit the office and the gang.

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 day he was able to reinstall the hair that had been lost. Even though it sounds trite, my hairdresser is also amazed. He said this is the most dramatic cosmetic procedure he has seen. My only regret is that I waited so long. It has been a wonderful and exciting experience. Thanks to Dr. Ziering and his staff for superb professionalism, you’re the best!

Best Regards,

Lorna S.

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.
