Dr. Daniel A. Danyo runs a boutique medical practice dedicated solely to hair loss treatment and restoration. Here, he talks about why he spends so much time doing consultations with potential transplant candidates and why it’s important for him to make that initial connection point with his patients.
A lot of hair restoration clinics don’t spend much time consulting with patients before they recommend a course of treatment and begin.
The process can sometimes feel impersonal and unpleasant – making a patient feel more like a number and less like an individual with unique wants and needs.
At North Atlanta Hair Restoration, the process is very different.
Dr. Danyo and his team are passionate about providing support every step of the way, making what could be an intimidating and overwhelming experience more approachable, affordable and accessible.
Why Take the Time to Do These Individual Consultations?
Dr. Danyo conducts every consultation himself, including both online and in-person consults that are easy and convenient for his clients.
He notes that “people are amazed that they’re actually talking to me” instead of a tech or a sales agent during these virtual or in-office visits.
Patients who want an online consult can either send the doctor photos digitally and then do a consult by phone or schedule a full video consultation using secure and confidential technology. Both consultation types are fully HIPAA-compliant and easy to use.
Dr. Danyo realizes that taking that first step is a very private and vulnerable moment for a lot of clients, and talking to a real doctor rather than a salesperson or technician inspires comfort and confidence in the process.
The doctor also recognizes that assessing each case himself means patients will get better guidance and treatment plans.
Moreover, many of the cases Dr. Danyo handles are complex, including corrective hair transplants after botched or poor previous procedures or after ailments that may have caused scarring.
As the doctor puts it, “It really takes expertise to cut to the chase and come up with the right treatment plan” for each of these individual cases.
Using Technology to Provide the Best Consultation Experience
Most prospective NAHR patients immediately get plugged into the clinic’s texting app, Klara. The team uses it to send Dr. Danyo’s hair restoration videos and informational podcasts before the initial consultation.
It’s a great way for patients to learn and get to know Dr. Danyo before they even meet him. Patients can also use Klara to ask questions, send photos of their hair loss and consult with the staff during treatment.
Why Personalized Care Is So Important
Dr. Danyo notes that a lot of hair restoration patients get bad medical advice, since doctors don’t really learn anything about hair loss in medical school.
This means many patients go through a lot of unnecessary treatments and procedures that won’t work for their situation.
Take traction alopecia from braiding, an issue many Black female clients face – a lot of these patients are given corticosteroid injections, PRP, and other often expensive and even painful treatments that won’t help with this type of hair loss.
Dr. Danyo’s training and expertise means he knows that the only effective intervention for these cases is usually a hair transplant procedure.
By assessing patients himself, Dr. Danyo can quickly and accurately diagnose hair loss issues and prescribe the most effective treatment.
His goal in doing these consults is to not waste people’s money and time and to come up with a treatment plan that’s actually going to work.
Most patients agree that it’s money well spent to talk to a real doctor with real expertise in hair loss treatment.
Why Dr. Danyo Charges for Consultations
Hair loss consultations at NAHR are real medical exams, and the treatment plans are prescribed medical treatments – not money-seeking sales pitches.
Dr. Danyo notes that even the professional board of hair loss professionals recommends that hair restoration doctors charge for consultations.
Patients are usually glad to learn that a portion of the consultation charge does count toward treatment if they decide to go forward.
Shave-less FUE is Dr. Danyo’s Specialty
This discreet hair transplant procedure requires no shaving of the transplant areas, so you can go back to work or out without anyone knowing you’ve had something done.
Dr. Danyo is renowned for his expert Shave-less FUE technique, and he carefully places every graft himself.
75% of all NAHR hair transplants are Shave-less FUE and patients are thrilled with the discretion, easy recovery and effectiveness of the technique.
Although Shave-less FUE is harder to perform, minimal swelling, minimal pain, fast procedures, faster healing and a high success rate are why Dr. Danyo and his patients prefer this specialized procedure.
