For the last ten years I have been researching and considering a hair transplant. Looked at all the big names in the biz and came across Dr. Arocha on the Hair Transplant Network.
Dr. Arocha was very patient with me as I came in for three consultations where he answered all my questions.
I finally decided it was time and made an appointment.

Dr Arocha and his staff made me feel completely at ease and comfortable. It was like having a good friend do your hair transplant. I had a 4000 graft procedure that lasted 6 hours and honestly it felt like very little time passed. ( I was dead asleep during the harvesting so that helped) No pain or discomfort to speak of.
After it was over I expected to see bloody holes all over my head but you couldn't see any evidence of the transplant! But I could definitely feel all the bristly new hairs. I am writing this 3 days after the procedure. I think the hardest part is waiting to see my new hair come in. I highly recommend Dr Arocha and his staff.

Prior to my surgery with Dr. Arocha I had 2 prior surgeries each with different surgeons. I seemed satisfied with the results of each except I was dissapointed with the number of graphs the other surgeons were able to get. It stands to reason that you should be able to get more graphs in the beginning due to lack odf scarring but the first doctor was only able to retrieve 2300 and the 2nd was only able to get 2700. Dr. Arocha was able to get 3100 on my 3rd surgery. He explained he would have been able to get between 4000-5000 had this been my first surgery. I just recently moved to Houston and I did a lot more research this time and decided against a major company this time. Dr. Arocha's reviews from various websites were excellent. I felt very comfortable and he spent a lot of time with me personally and I didn't have to talk to a salesman, I spoke with him only. That was refreshing vs the big companies. Outside of the locals you receive for numbness there was no pain and I did not have that groggy feeling. I felt great all day. I was also relieved that the two techs he assisting him have been with him a long time. His lead tech has been with him for 9 years and the other for 5 years. They kept me in good spirits all day. The only dissappointing thing is I did not use him sooner. I just had my surgery less than a week ago and I will update in a few months after I start seeing my results. I can not recommend him highly enough based on the surgery alone.

I went to see Dr. Arocha in August of 2009 and had a procedure done. It was a great experience. Dr. Arocha and his staff are down to Earth, professional, and very nice. My procedure started rather early in the morning and finished in the late afternoon. Amazing how the day flew by. Craig, Dr. Arocha's asst. was really great to talk to and they are still great when I see them. They actually remember my name and follow up has been great. I had, 3000 grafts done, mostly on the crown area. I'd be lying if I said there isn't any pain at all, but my recovery time was fast. I was out running within the week and a year later am happy to say that my hair is a lot thicker. As time will most certainly go by and more of my hair starts to fall out I know I will be going back to do another procedure. I was very satisfied also with the no b.s. sales style. I went to see a Bosley representative and it felt a lot more like I was negotiating to buy a car. Wasn't comfortable with that at all. With Dr. Arocha you get a great procedure at a fair price and I know I can trust them to do the same for me in the future.

I had a sudden lost and thinning of hair at a young age for 2 years and after it stopped my once thick and volumed hair was no more, but a doctor named Arocha help change that in 6 months. Now that being said, to best describe my experience of the procedure would be of relaxing and well taken care of. Dr. Arocha is truly an artist with hair, "where the scalpel is his brush and your head is his canvas."

Please don't think twice, Dr Arocha is the best I promise. I had 3500 grafts put in and it looks great, I studied five other surgeons but Doctor Arocha cannot be put in comparison with anyone.

Dr. Arocha is the best of the best. A true artist in every sense of the word and a classy guy. The entire staff becomes family within minutes of walking through his office. Everything about the experience was top notch and the results are terrific...I couldn't have asked for a better look. I look and feel better now than when I was 19.\n\nThank you Doc and staff!

Let me guess, youre losing your hair and doing a little research on hair restoration. So you are reading the reviews to try and find just the right Doctor for you. Well guess what, you found him. From the first call to Dr. Arochas office it has been a wonderful experience. Im 25 years old and started losing my hair around 22. I hated that I was so young losing hair. So over the years I was always researching on what I could do. Then I heard about hair restorations. I looked for more than a year on where to go. Then I found Dr. Arocha, and after reading all the great reviews I made a call. From the moment you step in the door, you feel like a part of the family. Even the building there is a piece of art. I mainly worked with Craig, but the entire staff is very nice. Dr. Arocha answered all of my questions, showed me photos of before and afters, and is just extremely helpful. Dr. Arocha knows his stuff. So, we set a date for surgery. Again, they tell you everything you need to know so youre not in the dark. Surgery was a piece of cake, and the lunch was great. After surgery they tell you how to treat your hair for the next week and show you how to wash it and so on. As of now, I am on my 6 month out of surgery and people keep telling me how my hair just looks fuller and thicker. People cant believe its my own hair. Its like there all amazed. I cant say enough good things about Dr. Arocha and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Arocha for Hair restoration. Thank you sooo much team, and keep up the great work. Kevin

Let me begin by stating that this review is well deserved for Dr.Arocha and his staff, and I am one year out from the original date of my surgery, which was done in December 2010. I began to lose my hair at the age of 18 and soon after college I decided it was time to do something about it. I began researching the various hair restoration places around the Houston area and visited one of the major competitors in the hair restoration industry. I was about to make the move and have it done at one of the majors around September 2010, but luckily I went back home to do more research. I visited the various forums (hair restoration network, etc.) and began to read the reviews of the major player in the industry. I decided not to make the move and began a period of more research. Through the forums, I discovered Dr. Arochas clinic and read the great reviews posted on forums, Google, and CitySearch. To this day, I am extremely grateful I did that. I made the initial consultation in late September 2010, and I immediately knew that Dr. Arocha was the right person for the procedure. Dr. Arocha and his staff are highly knowledgeable and truly understand the patients needs. He sat down with me and provided me various options and explained the entire procedure as well. At first I was a little nervous, but after he gave me a great explanation, I knew I would have my procedure done there. I left the consultation and scheduled my procedure for December 2010. \nOn the day of the procedure, Dr. Arocha and his staff explained the pre/post-op procedures. I felt extremely comfortable in the hands of Dr.Arocha and his staff. They provided a lunch break during the surgery and 3500 grafts later, I was on my way to a new look and increased self-esteem. Dr. Arocha and his staff answered any questions I had after the procedure, and they provided great advice on what to do to ensure a faster recovery. \nOne year later I went to see the Dr. Arocha for my fourth follow-up since the procedure (1 every 3-4 months), and he showed me the pictures from my initial visit in September 2010. All I had to say was, WOW! The transformation has been amazing and the scar is hardly noticeable at all. Each time I went in, Dr. Arocha took pictures of the progress and it was a good way to see the results. I am extremely happy with the results and the progress my hair has made since the surgery. As mentioned before, this is an extremely well deserved review for Dr. Arocha (later is better than never) and his staff. If you are considering this type of procedure and looking for amazing results, care, and want to feel like a person versus a number, I recommend you visit Dr.Arocha. I will certainly use him for any future procedures I decide to do. Happy with Great Hair in 2012

\r\n \r\nHow do you choose the best Doctor for Hair Restoration? Do you search by price? Location? Experience? Patient Reviews? Well, we are very picky about the physicians we see so we searched by all of the above and that is how we found Dr. Arocha! 2 years ago, I would see my husband spending a little more time in the mirror styling his hair, finally he spoke up. He wanted me to do research on Hair Restoration because he felt as he could use a little extra up top. I contacted the office and since we are out of state we hoped they would be able to get us in for the consult and procedure close together

I had my 4500 graft procedure last April, and I could not be more pleased with my early results. Less than 6 months after the surgery, I'm already getting compliments, and I feel like I have a whole new head of hair.\r\n\r\nSurgery day was very pleasant. The facility in Houston is top notch! I brought dvds to watch during the procedure, but I enjoyed Dr. Arocha's ipod playlist so much, I just listened to it the entire time. \r\n\r\nRecovery was exactly as he outlined, the most difficult part being sleeping comfortably the first few days after.\r\n\r\nCraig, Maria, and Jose (I think that was his name) answered every question, kept me comfortable, and have continued to be extremely helpful in the months following.\r\n\r\nI highly reccomend chosing Dr. Arocha for your hair restoration. He truly is an artist!!!

I first met Dr. Bernardino Arocha in the summer of 2010. He quoted me a reasonable price, based on my research of several other hair transplant surgeons, and indicated that I needed approximately 3000 graphs in the frontal area to get a look of fullness. At the time, I was a full-time law student, and needed to wait until I had adequate funding.\n\nSo, I returned to see Dr. Arocha about one year later. He not only remembered me, he keep all of his promises, and I was able to have the hair restoration surgery on 9-1-2011. His staff was excellent, attentive, and always polite. Today is 9/25/11, about 3 weeks since my surgery, and I have absolutely no discomfort. \n\nI highly recommend Dr. Arocha. He is an artist, a man who keeps his word, and someone I completely trust. I am truly grateful to Dr. Arocha for his integrity, and mainly for just caring.\n\nThank you! \nSteven\n\n

Many reviews of Dr. Arocha will tell you how easy and relatively comfortable the doctor makes the procedure and how professional and attentive his staff is. My experiences would echo those posts and I would encourage anyone not to let apprehension of the procedure sway them from having the procedure done.\r\n\r\nHowever, the most important reason to choose Dr. Arocha is to get results that look as natural as your original hair - and even better. I've had two procedures with Dr. Arocha and my hair has come back looking as natural as it was before AND with a new hairline shaped to the way I had always wanted. Dr. Arocha offers you not only hair replacement but will collaborate with you to optimize your facial enhancement.\r\n\r\nFor years I had yearned for a procedure to become available that would provide natural looking results and without the risk of being perceptable to others that I had had a transplant done. I remembered seeing the obvious transplant jobs in the 1990s and they had scared me away from wanting the procedure. \r\n\r\nNow, however, I was beginning to see television comercials and online pictures that depicted much more natural looking results. But, I remained skeptical. I feared most becoming known as ""that guy with the transplant"" at parties and social events.\r\n\r\nI did a lot of reasearch and discovered that technology had made huge advances since the ""plugs"" of the 1990s and that Dr. Arocha was at the forefront of techniques in achieving a most natural look. I learned that he is an artist by training and brought his artistic eye to creating the most realistic hairlines.\r\n\r\nI since have had two procedures with Dr. Arocha and I have been most impressed with how natural the results look. The transplanted hairs at my scalp look indentical to my natural hairs - something I had been very skeptical of for years. If there is any difference between my natural and my transplanted hairs, it is imperceptable to the eye. You literally cannot tell one from the other. \r\n\r\nThe procedure not only gave me hair and an improved appearance but also lifted my self image and confidence around others. It was a fair price to pay for a renewed self-esteem. The pure natural look I was seeking, Dr. Arochas advanced procedures provided. \r\n.\r\nAfter now having two procedures I have also learned that not only are his results natural in appearance but your hair will actually look better than it did before you lost it. In other words, Dr. Arocha not only restores your hairline but brings it back more attractive than it was before. He will work with you to help achieve your desired optimal look. I will be going back for my third procedure soon for this purpose.\r\n\r\nIf you're on the fence because you fear an unnatural result, my results should encourage you to move forward with it. Two years later my decision is still one of the best decisons of my life. I only wish I had done it sooner.

It was a fair price to pay for a renewed self-esteem. The pure natural look I was seeking, Dr. Arochas advanced procedures provided. \r\n.\r\nAfter now having two procedures I have also learned that not only are his results natural in appearance but your hair will actually look better than it did before you lost it. In other words, Dr. Arocha not only restores your hairline but brings it back more attractive than it was before. He will work with you to help achieve your desired optimal look. I will be going back for my third procedure soon for this purpose.\r\n\r\nIf you're on the fence because you fear an unnatural result, my results should encourage you to move forward with it. Two years later my decision is still one of the best decisons of my life. I only wish I had done it sooner.

I cannot be more pleased with the work that Dr. Arocha performed on me. Dr. Arocha and his staff were exceptionally friendly and professional. It is amazing to me how natural looking he was able to restore my hairline. Dr. Arocha is an artist (literally), and he uses that artistic ability and eye when he performs his work. I had the procedure performed (2000 grafts) just over a year ago, and to this day, not one person has asked me if I had received a transplant. It's amazing to me how little I notice my hair now....when just over a year ago I would constantly look at my rapidly receding hairline in every reflection and get depressed. When I say going to Dr. Arocha was worth every hard earned penny....I mean every word of it.

Mo Dabdoub is a well known hair stylist in the Galleria area of Houston, he has male and female clients that go to Dr. Arocha and he wanted me write this review and let everyone know that Dr. Arocha is the best in Hair restoration, he can change the hairline back making the client look younger, and a more natural looking. He is extremely impressed with the work this doctor does and highly recommends him.

After doing my homework on which hair restoration surgeon was the most talented and qualified in the country, Dr. Arocha turned out to be the leading candidate. To my surprise, his practices were located in Dallas and Houston, and being a native Houstonian, I was ecstatic about this. \n\nI quickly made a consultation appointment with Dr. Arocha, which was free I might add, and before I knew it I was face to face with Dr. Arocha himself. I went in there nervous, and came out excited and informed. He and his staff were very professional, patient, and caring. \n\nThe actual procedure itself was a breeze. I figured it had to be somewhat painful, but it wasn't at all. I went home with some simple post procedure instructions, and that was that. Dr. Arocha and his staff continually checked in with me, and were always available for any questions I had. \n\nIt's been six months now since my procedure and my confidence has sky rocketed. The results are amazing, I still can't get over it. If anyone has any doubts about going through with this procedure, I highly recommend at least talking with Dr. Arocha. I know he has made so many people happy, and I am one of them. From the bottom of my heart, thank you thank you Dr. Arocha!

I had my procedure just over 1 year ago. The results have been FANTASTIC!!! \r\n\r\nBefore the procedure, Dr Arocha sat down with me and carefully walked me through the process, answered all of my questions, and generally made it as easy as possible. No pressure. No sales. Just honest talk.\r\n \r\nWhen the day came for the actual work, they constantly asked about my comfort, while working tirelessly to complete the job. Overall, a relatively painless procedure.\r\n\r\nAfter that, they set up follow-up appointments after 3 days, 10-days, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months and most recently 1 year. In all honestly, I have never had a medical professional put forth the kind of follow-up care, as Dr Arocha. \r\n\r\nThese people are GREAT! \r\n\r\nThe quality of the work, the care, the attention, the follow-up are all FIRST CLASS!!! \r\n\r\nI would STRONGLY recommend Dr. Arocha and his staff to anyone considering this kind of procedure!

I had my hair restoration procedure performed by Dr. Arocha just over 7 months ago. I had 4250 grafts implanted, & let me tell you my results so far are outstanding! I'm actually scared to look at my before pictures, which he will show you on your 4 month follow ups lol! It's a night & day difference! When I first approached Dr. Arocha with my hair loss problem, he explained what results I can expect from the procedure, & has more than met those expectations. There are other doctors in the greater Houston area that perform these procedures, but Dr. Arocha was the only one dedicated to hair restoration only. His whole staff is very friendly, and accommodating. I thank Dr. Arocha and his professional team for making my experience as smooth as possible. I would recommend Dr. Arocha to anyone suffering from hair loss.

Dr. Arocha and his team made me feel very comfortable throughout the process for hair restoration. I was happy to meet everyone at his office, because they were all very friendly. This aspect helped me trust Dr. Arocha and his team all the way throughout and in the follow ups. The team at Arocha hair restoration also keeps things very discreet and personalized.\n\nAfter my procedure, I have had very good follow-ups, an important aspect to the process. I recommend Dr. Arocha to anyone who wants a natural hair restoration and a caring doctor.

Dr. Arocha performed a procedure for me almost three years ago (4,000 graphs) and the results have been nothing less than phenomenal. Every mention I have had regarding my hair restoration procedure has been met with initial disbelief and subsequent amazement as to the quality of work. The level of care and follow-up was exceptional and I still communicate with Dr. Arocha to this day. I have recommended him to several friends and all have had very positive and rewarding experiences. He is simply the best in the business and I highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in having a hair restoration procedure that is virtually undetectable.

I had my tansplant at Dr. Arocha's Dallas office a year ago. At that time Dr. Arocha was leasing an office that had been sold days after my procedure. They do not have a strong presence in Dallas as their website makes it appear. I saw Dr.Arocha once and that was when the procedure was performed. I had to go to an Urgent Care center to have my stiches taken out and there was absolutely NO Post Op follow-up what so ever. Not a single phone call trying to set something up or to even check on me after the procedure. \r\n\r\nUltra refined hair transplants are a big procedure (Mine was 2500) with many complications that can possibly form. To have a surgeon that is not good in their post op follow-up is a BIG RED FLAG. \r\n\r\nBEWARE!!!!!!!!

I just got a 3600 grafts procedure done 10 days ago. This was my second procedure. I had done my first procedure about 7 years ago with another doctor (about 1200 grafts).My review will try to answer some of the basic questions any new patient considers as well provide a comparative review with my previous procedure.\r\n\r\nHere are the questions that went through my mind while I was going through the phase of choosing a doctor:\r\n\r\nQuestion 1: Does this doctor do a good job? I have heard many times that this is more of a art then a science. The transplant has to look natural and more importantly has to look ""full""\r\n\r\nAnswer: I chose Dr. Arocha because several of my friends have done procedures with him either in Dallas or Houston. Needless to say, their results have been awesome!\r\n\r\nAdditionally, my initial consultation with Dr. Arocha was very interactive. He showed my before and after photos and even spent time working with me to draw up the my hair line and the kind of work he would do on me. Understood exactly what I wanted worked with me. I left the initial consultation with ""no strings attached"". No sales pitches, no gimmicks like ""sign up today and receive xx $ off"" otherwise the price will increase. He gave me the time to think about it without the lure of saving money as most sales men do.\r\n\r\nQuestion 2: How will I be guaranteed that the Dr. will actually transplant the # of grafts I am paying for? After all, there is no way you can count them after the procedure I am sure many of you have the same question as well. I concluded there was no way I could answer that question and had to just base it on trust. Interestingly enough, I did find my answer after the procedure :)\r\n\r\nAnswer: The doctor had initially prescribed 4000 grafts for me. After the procedure was done.. he could have easily just told me that we were able to transplant 4000 and you are good to go. However, Dr. Arocha was honest enough to tell me that he was only able to transplant 3600 grafts because my previous procedure had left a bigger scar and he didnt want to disturb that area. He told me that I could come back in 6 months and do another small procedure to improve upon areas that I wanted to touch up. He also gave me a bonus set of grafts for free for my next procedure. I was super impressed with his honesty and more impressed with his generosity.\r\n\r\nWhat he did was very commendable.. very few doctors would do that.\r\n\r\n

This review is written from a slightly different point of view - that of a female. I had 2000 grafts done 10 days ago at Dr. Arocha's clinic in Houston. I have suffered for several years with severe hair loss on the frontal and top side of my head. I think that it is a harder decision for women to choose hair transplantation - or it was hard for me. I entered into the decision with great trepidation...terrified.\r\n\r\nThe day of the surgery I was amazed at how relaxed and non-threatening the whole experience was. I was given breakfast (too nervous to find it on my own....). Everyone was so personable and easy to relate to. The actual procedure was not as near as painful as I had feared. We stopped for lunch, visited, then finished the job. When I went back to the hotel I was completely amazed at the lack of pain. I return the next morning for a quick check and drove 3.5 hrs. back home. \r\n\r\nIt has now been 10 days....I have never taken more than an Advil for swelling. I had some swelling b/c I detest sleeping on my back. Therefore,... I looked sort of like an Avatar for a day or so...\r\n\r\nThe absolute WORST day for me was day 8... the scabs began to shed...drove me bonkers!!!! Scared me to death to get them off...scared to leave them on...arrrggghhh...itchy itchy itchy.\r\n\r\nSo.....do it!! Stitches out with no discomfort. Scalp itchy but no pain. I still can't believe how easy this has been. Dr. Arocha and his team are simply wonderful. I am already planning one more session as soon as Dr. Arocha gives me the green light. Thank you again to all of the staff - you are the best!\r\n

I had a procedure with Dr. Arocha nearly three years ago after I noticed material recession at my hairline (particularly at the temples, where Propecia can't really help). I chose Dr. Arocha after exhaustive research; choosing your doctor for this type of procedure is a decision you have to live with for a long time. Three years on - and indeed only 3 months on - I was and still am extremely satisfied. Three primary reasons I'd recommend Dr. Arocha:\n\n(1) Unlike everyone else in hair restoration, he does not over-promise. Dr. Arocha was extremely candid with me about what can and cannot be done, and what will and will not work. Hair transplantation is a big decision, so you need to know exactly what you're getting into. \n\n(2) My new hair looks phenomenal. Any licensed/trained doctor can perform the procedure, but can he/she perform it WELL? Hair transplantation is an art: Does the hair 'fall' naturally? Does the hairline look fake? Does the density appear natural? I live and work in Europe, and have seen many guys over here with very obvious transplants because their hair just doesn't look right. But my hair looks 100% natural. In fact, it 'falls' so perfectly that I think I look even better than I did as a teenager.\n\n(3) Dr. Arocha is an incredible value for the money. It's obvious from my experience (and other patients I've seen) that Dr. Arocha goes for long-term solutions with his procedures. Other doctors may do a short-term 'band aid' solution, which means you'll be back in their office very soon for another expensive procedure. With Dr. Arocha, I got more surface area and more grafts, which makes it a much better value. I know of other people who've had cosmetic procedures done (plastic surgery, etc.), and I know I've got the best value of any of them. Also, even though I did NOT shop around for the lowest price (I want good, not cheap), Dr. Arocha was the lowest quotation I received from any Doctor.\n\nLET ME BE CLEAR: I may be endorsing Dr. Arocha, but I'm just a normal customer. I paid full price for my procedure just like anyone else. I offer this unqualified endorsement only because I am extremely happy with my procedure.

I researched hair restoration clinics in Houston and found Arocha Hair Restoration (AHR) the most comforting. In the initial free consultation, Dr. Arocha took the time to educate me on all of my options and about the procedure itself. Any questions I had were immediately addressed and his staff was also very helpful. I had 4000 grafts put in and after 6 months could see drastic changes. I had an excellent experience with AHR and have much more confidence because of it.

had 2 previous surgeries from another dr. in texas. only would do small steps- 500 and 700 grafts.- dr. arocha was able to do over 3500 grafts in one sitting. liked that he was the person who made all the receipient sites and like he states, he views his work as art. he did what i asked of him. staff was terrfic. alot of hair doctors just do the removal and stapling. - dr. arocha does this and makes sites plus he has 2 terrific staff members doing the planting which is why he can get so much done. they made me feel comfortable and any time i needed more numbing , they obliged. i would recommend him to all. just had surgery 1 week ago and will be excited to see what happens but looking at things, i can tell how all will look.

Prior to my surgery with Dr. Arocha I had 2 prior surgeries each with different surgeons. I seemed satisfied with the results of each except I was dissapointed with the number of graphs the other surgeons were able to get. It stands to reason that you should be able to get more graphs in the beginning due to lack odf scarring but the first doctor was only able to retrieve 2300 and the 2nd was only able to get 2700. Dr. Arocha was able to get 3100 on my 3rd surgery. He explained he would have been able to get between 4000-5000 had this been my first surgery. I just recently moved to Houston and I did a lot more research this time and decided against a major company this time. Dr. Arocha's reviews from various websites were excellent. I felt very comfortable and he spent a lot of time with me personally and I didn't have to talk to a salesman, I spoke with him only. That was refreshing vs the big companies. Outside of the locals you receive for numbness there was no pain and I did not have that groggy feeling. I felt great all day. I was also relieved that the two techs he assisting him have been with him a long time. His lead tech has been with him for 9 years and the other for 5 years. They kept me in good spirits all day. The only dissappointing thing is I did not use him sooner. I just had my surgery less than a week ago and I will update in a few months after I start seeing my results. I can not recommend him highly enough based on the surgery alone.

I'm a 20 year old male with relatively minimal thinning on the top of the head and more advanced loss near the crown area. Though my situation isn't especially severe, the hair loss was noticeable and has hampered my previously boundless confidence. After stabilizing my hair loss with a combined regiment of Propecia and Rogaine, I began to search for a more permanent solution to the problem and began looking into surgical hair restoration. From the start, it was clear that Dr. Arocha and his staff were one of the most highly regarded hair restoration groups in the country, and my actual experience with them has echoed that initial perception in every regard. Their previous work is fantastic, but I was most impressed with the cordiality and professionalism that Dr. Arocha and his staff exhibited. Hair loss can be a difficult issue to grapple with, but Dr. Arocha's group is extremely understanding and catered to my desire to keep the procedure completely private. The procedure itself was nearly pain-free and as I sit here typing this two days post-op, I can hardly believe that I had anything done at all. The medications used for the operation prevent you from driving home following the procedure, so Dr. Arocha allowed me to park my car in his garage for the night and a staff member drove me to a hotel at no additional expense. These kinds of personal touches characterize the Arocha experience. Though it's too soon to enjoy my newly grafted hair, I can confidently say that the personal attention and care that I received from Dr. Arocha's office was nothing short of world class.

I'm a 20 year old male with relatively minimal thinning on the top of the head and more advanced loss near the crown area. Though my situation isn't especially severe, the hair loss was noticeable and has hampered my previously boundless confidence. After stabilizing my hair loss with a combined regiment of Propecia and Rogaine, I began to search for a more permanent solution to the problem and began looking into surgical hair restoration. From the start, it was clear that Dr. Arocha and his staff were one of the most highly regarded hair restoration groups in the country, and my actual experience with them has echoed that initial perception in every regard. Their previous work is fantastic, but I was most impressed with the cordiality and professionalism that Dr. Arocha and his staff exhibited. Hair loss can be a difficult issue to grapple with, but Dr. Arocha's group is extremely understanding and catered to my desire to keep the procedure completely private. The procedure itself was nearly pain-free and as I sit here typing this two days post-op, I can hardly believe that I had anything done at all. The medications used for the operation prevent you from driving home following the procedure, so Dr. Arocha allowed me to park my car in his garage for the night and a staff member drove me to a hotel at no additional expense. These kinds of personal touches characterize the Arocha experience. Though it's too soon to enjoy my newly grafted hair, I can confidently say that the personal attention and care that I received from Dr. Arocha's office was nothing short of world class.

Pros: World Class Service, Personal Experience

My general advice to people considering hair transplantation would be to choose from amongst the surgeons who are recommended by the various hair restoration societies. From my experience I can say that Dr. Bernardino Arocha is really a great hair transplantation surgeon. I can mention some of the positive points about him, which might make you feel that he is the right Doctor for you to have a hair transplant. Here are the points.... (1) He is recommended by several surgical Hair Restoration Associations, who have really set a very high standard for this kind of practice. (2) He is a perfect gentleman and you can discuss all your concerns and goals with him without any hesitation. Skype Consultation is also possible! When I spoke to him for the first time, I felt as if I knew him for years!! Now even after my surgery, when I have some concerns, he and his staff happily entertain all my questions. (3) Doc himself is very experienced and has got a very knowledgeable, experienced and skillfull staff (like Craig, Maria and others), who are very professional in their work, but at the same time are personal in their behavior. Doc and his staff are very friendly and make every situation so light that you dont even feel that you are having a surgery!! Atleast I felt like that.. (4) Doc is an artist himself by hobby and what I know about this kind of cosmetic surgery is that along with the technical skills, the doc needs to have a very good aesthetic sense, because its all about your looks, which I am sure Dr. Arocha has.. (5) Dr. Arocha and his staff perform ONE surgery a day, so you will be his sole attention on the day of your surgery. It will be ""YOUR DAY"", whose result will last you for a lifetime!!

Upon researching and consulting hair restoration surgeons locally, it was evident Dr. Arocha stood out miles ahead of the rest in terms of his use of the latest techniques and his ability in creating densely packed natural results. Since such high quality results require a certain meticulousness, long hours, not to mention an aesthetic sensibility, only a handful of surgeons across the country exist in this category. We are lucky enough to have one of those surgeons here locally in Dr. Arocha.\r\n\r\nI had 4500 grafts done 9months ago and so far my results are astounding. There is literally a night and day difference in my appearance. In the next few months, my hair will continue to grow and thicken even more. In short, I am ecstatic :)\r\n\r\nThe procedure itself took the entire day, but was not at all tiresome in any way. Dr. Arocha and his team are super friendly and fun as time just flew by. Strangely enough, though I was being poked in the head 4500 times, I had a wonderful time filled with great conversation. Any question I had concerning the procedure was answered in depth.\r\n\r\nAnother thing that is clearly evident with Dr. Arocha is that he is passionate about what he does and takes great personal care in working with you to achieve great results. Anyone who loves what they do will do a great job and go above and beyond the norm. \r\n\r\nPlease do yourself a favor if you are thinking about HR and visit this man. I highly recommend his work. Getting my hair restored has certainly been one of the best decisions I've ever made.

I am a 29 year old male and had a second procedure done by Dr. Arocha. The first was done about 6 years ago. I just had my 4 month follow up and the before and after pictures are unbelievable!!! It is only going to get better as it comes closer to the full year mark. If you are on the fence, just do it. It is worth the money and Dr. Arocha is one of the best in the country! The staff is great and you are treated like family even after the procedure.

I recently had a procedure by Dr. Arocha and his staff and I have to say they are first class not only as professionals, but personally. The procedure itself is very easy and the ""recovery"" is very easy and painless. Perhaps the toughest part during the procedure is numbing your scalp. Other than that is just a full day at the clinic and that is all. The recovery is really being very careful the first week after the procedure. Sleep with your head elevated, washing your hair (probably need help from someone else). After the first week they remove the stitches and you are back to normal (if you lift weights you have to wait another week). \nIn my own experience, I had a previous hair transplant (Bosley) and it was a big disappointment and led me to lose faith in this technique. Ten years later I did my homework and found Dr. Arocha and just after a week of my procedure I feel pretty optimistic I will get what I expect. To me, the toughest part to committing to a procedure like this is making sure the results match your expectations. I'm 6-8 months away from that moment, but I like my chances. I will definitely publish another review then. Hope this helps!

I interviewed serveral hair restoration centers and ended up choosing Arocha for their client concerns and advanced methods which allow for quick recovery and minimal swelling. The group is results oriented and I am more than satisfied with the results. I had a previous transplant done in CA and experienced lots of swelling, bleeding and not a quick recovery. Results at Arocha were completely different. The next day after the procedure I was feeling pretty good. After the procedure I took nothing stronger than over the counter medication.\r\n\r\nI recently had a 1 year follow up visit with Dr. Arocha. We reviewed the present day pictures and past pictures and there is a significant positive change. The first transplant had shown great results and I am very pleased with the healing and minimal scarring and mostly importantly the transplant looks extremely natural.
