This article is the result of my own personal research into the best hair transplant surgeons in New York City.

I didn’t want to be biased with any preconceptions so i came up with a checklist which i applied to all the clinics equally.

How i researched the clinics

checklist1
  1. Years active is used as an indication of longevity.  Bad clinics don’t usually last that long.
  2. A great website is usually a good sign.
  3. What are people saying about the clinic in hair transplant forums?
  4. Photo galleries of former clients.  How good does the work look?
  5. Is the surgeon publishing research papers.  This is a sign of academic excellence and leadership in his/her field.
  6. Does the business have other branches? if they are expanding it’s a very good sign their first branch was a success.
  7. ABHRS is the American society of hair restorative surgeons.  Membership of this shows the surgeon is at least recognised in the country as a hair transplant surgeon among colleagues.

dr feller clinic review

Interesting note that the clinic is now branded as “Feller & Bloxham”.  Clearly he has partnered with another colleague.

I don’t know much of Dr Bloxham and wasn’t able to find much on his work either.  So this section of the review will focus on Dr Feller.

Publications:

Yes.  Many dating back to the early 2000s.  He is also down as an inventor of certain hair transplant instruments.

ABHRS Membership:

Yes

Men & Women clients:

Possibly.  Just didn’t see any women featured in the photo gallery.  But there is a section which discusses female hair transplants in good detail.

So they probably do female hair transplants but in much fewer numbers than men.

Techniques used:

FUT and FUE.

Other services:

Unknown.  Didn’t see any other services mentioned on their website.  

Hair transplant Cost:

A very nice summary is provided on the website of the potential cost at Dr Feller’s clinic.

dr feller cost

It appears the cost is structured and depends on the number of hair grafts.

The more grafts the more expensive.

It also appears FUE technique is much more expensive than FUT.

Photo-gallery:

Yes.  And just like with Dr Bernstein’s clinic, each case has notes and commentary which give further detail.

Incredibly useful.

Forum Feedback:

Very positive, and long standing.  Some posts from way back when!

Highlights:

This clinic is all about hair transplants.  They haven’t been tempted to branch out into other cosmetic areas which seems to be quite fashionable these days.

The website is transparent and informative.

I liked how they gave cost estimates which is quite rare for clinics.  They usually like to keep this under wraps!

Clearly Dr Feller is  leading pioneer in hair transplantation given his outstanding CV.

Lead Surgeon :

Dr True & Dr Dorin

 I must admit i wasn’t familiar with either doctor until i sat down to research this article.  But their names repeatedly came up in forums.  People clearly rated them.

And when i looked them i was also impressed.

They’re active on forums sharing case studies from as far back as 2009.

Publications:

No.  But they have been featured in magazines.

ABHRS Membership:

Yes

Men & Women clients:

Yes

Techniques used:

FUT, FUE, non-surgical such as PRP and laser light therapy.

Other services:

Eyebrow restoration and beard transplant.  

Hair transplant Cost:

They don’t give definitive cost but they give a very broad range of $5000 – $15000 per single hair transplant session.

They also mention FUE is more expensive than FUT.

Photo-gallery:

Yes.

There are no detailed commentary like in the other 2 clinics, but the photos are absolutely pin sharp and beautiful.

There are also video case studies for some 

Forum Feedback:

Excellent.  They are also active on forums themselves sharing case studies with readers.

Highlights:

What strikes you about the website of this clinic is how modern it is.  The layout and graphics are gorgeous.

Dr True and Dr Dorin have been around for years, so they clearly know what they’re doing.  They’re probably not as “forum famous” as some but they are outstanding professionals.
