All I can say is Wow. I had such a great experience with Dr Rome. I went in for hair restoration via ARTAS Robotic procedure. During the whole process he was kind, and understanding and you could tell he just knew what he was doing. I had previously got 2000 grafts done via the strip method on the front of my crown and had quite a bad experience, not only did maybe 30% of the 2000 grafts that I initially had done come in a year post op, but with âstrip method you are left with a horrible scar in the back of your head. The place was called Samson Hair Restoration in van nuys, los angeles and they were running a 3 dollar graft special. So I thought it was a no brainer but little did I know how horrible things were going to go. With only 30% of the grafts surviving it pretty much came out to 10 dollars a graft and what's even worse I now have a hug scare that will remain on the back of my head for the rest of my life. It's the biggest mistake I ever made. My experience with Dr Rome was the complete opposite, I really can't stress enough how great my procedure went with him and his team. Dr Rome ended up suggesting I get 1000 graft done via ARTAS. For this procedure it comes out to be 7 dollars per grafts, but the thing is it looks like I've had 100% success rate with my hairs growing back and this is the usual case when you do ARTAS according to studies. Also another huge plus is you don't get left with a horrible scare in the back of your head with this method. I can't stress enough how much better my experience was with Dr Rome. Also after the procedure I had very minimal swelling, when I went for my Strip Method I still looked severely bruised on my forehead and eyes for over a week. I wish I went to him the first time. As they say you live and you learn.
