Dear Dr. Rassman,
I’ve been reading your blog for about two years now since I started dealing with hair loss, thanks so much for donating your time to the public in this way. I have a question that I haven’t really seen addressed in past postings: Just how accessible are you to the average working guy who wants a procedure with you? You seem to be at the forefront of your field, I imagine you’re services are quite in demand and I’m not a pro athlete, movie star or CEO.
What are my chances of being able to get through and have a consultation with you? I/m 31, I’ve been maintaining an almost full head of hair with propecia, which grew back a lot of my crown where I was thinning. But I imagine somewhere down the line I will want a procedure, particularly if things like A-Cell pan out to make transplants less invasive.
Contrary to what you may think, I am available to anybody who wants to see me for a consultation. In fact, many of my patients are just the “average Joe”. Anyone can call 800-NEW-HAIR to setup an appointment.
Since you indicated you’re in the Bay Area, you can also see my associate Dr. Jae Pak, as he flies up to our NHI office in San Jose every Wednesday. While I usually spend my time at our Los Angeles office, I am also available in San Jose on occasion when Dr. Pak takes a break from his schedule.
