Hair Restoration Consultation Essentials

When considering hair restoration, knowing who will be performing your procedure is crucial. Dr. Daniel A. Danyo, founder of North Atlanta Hair Restoration, emphasizes the importance of physician-led consultations and procedures in a recent episode of his podcast, Hair Restoration with Dr. Daniel A. Danyo.

The Importance of Medical Evaluations

Dr. Danyo stresses that hair transplantation is a medical procedure requiring a physician’s expertise. “A physician needs to, one, see if somebody is actually a candidate. Two, are there potential medical issues that may either complicate things before, during, or after procedure, and then also set reasonable expectations,” he explains.

Unlike practices that offer free consultations with non-medical staff, Dr. Danyo advocates for physician-led, paid consultations. This approach ensures that patients receive a thorough medical evaluation, addressing potential health concerns and setting realistic expectations.

Red Flags in the Consultation Process

Dr. Danyo warns of several red flags patients should be aware of when seeking hair restoration:

1. Lack of physician involvement in consultations and procedures
2. Pressure to pay full price upfront before the procedure
3. Recommendations for extremely high graft counts in a single session

He shares an example of unethical practices, where a patient was sold a procedure by a salesperson without ever meeting a physician. Dr. Danyo contrasts this with his approach, which includes multiple touch points with medical professionals before any procedure is scheduled.

The Value of Expertise and Ethics

As a Diplomate of the American and International Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, Dr. Danyo brings a high level of expertise to his practice. He is also a member of the International Alliance of Hair Restoration Surgeons, a group of about 80 professionals worldwide who are leaders in research and education in the field.

Dr. Danyo’s ethical approach is reflected in his billing practices. “When I do my billing, I do the billing after we get all the grafts, we bill per graft,” he explains, ensuring patients only pay for the work that can be safely performed.

Choosing the Right Provider

When selecting a hair restoration provider, Dr. Danyo advises patients to trust their instincts. “If something feels weird, maybe listen to that,” he suggests. He encourages potential patients to seek practices where they can verify the doctor’s involvement and feel comfortable with the entire process.
