My 2012 Restoration

Dr Carman did my transplant in 2012. It is holding up great. It was a major transplant . He and his staff (Pam and the others) are caring, honest and effective. It is the one investment I have never regretted. I can look in the mirror and not fear what I see in regards to my hair. They are the best in my opinion.

Great Hair Trasnsplant and Experience

I just wanted to thank you Dr Carman and your staff. It has now been two years since the procedure and I could not be happier of the results. The hair line is very natural. Also, I would like to say that you, Pam snd Diana were extremely nice and made me feel very comfortable.

Really great experience!

Dr. Timothy Carman is the best! He really made me feel comfortable being there, he's very easy to talk with and Pam is the best the nicest person you'll ever meet and the ladies working with Dr. Carman are so nice and professional. I truly felt very comfortable being there and I researched other places and had consultations at other places but I felt most comfortable with Dr. Carman he made me feel like a friend versus a patient. He takes pride and has passion for what he does and that is what's most important in this line of work. He's a true artist and I had my procedure done 2 months ago and I couldn't be happier, I Highly recommend!!! 👍👍👍

Best you can get

I have had three different hair restoration doctors over the last 30 years (I started thinning in my early 20s); the first doctor did a terrible "Barbie Doll" procedure, but I found a good second doctor who more or less repaired it with micro and mini grafts and did additional work. A couple years ago I decided to get some final work done, but unfortunately my second doctor had passed away. I did quite a lot of research and found Dr. Carman's credentials to be top-notch (he actually wrote the board exams for the 25th World Congress of the International Society of Hair Restoration in Prague in 2017). I completed two procedures with him and the results are beyond expectations. A doctor can have all the modern hair restoration training in the world, but without artistic talent the results will not be there. Dr. Carman is also a talented painter and artist; combine that with his technical ability and the results are stunning. He's also a terrific guy and fun to talk to, and his staff are terrific as well. Having had 3 different doctors and 30+ years of experience in this game, I can honestly say you won't find anyone better anywhere.

In great hands!

This review is long overdue. I had noticed hair thinning out for years but it took forever for me to get the courage to go forward with consulting with hair restoration centers. Upon doing so I was skeptical as some doctors had no real experience and used techs that were regional in southern CA to do most of the procedure. I had a consultation with Dr. Carman and it changed everything. He is so honest, has an artistic aptitude, and really cares about results so much that he made me see a dermatologist for a biopsy first to make sure I didn't have any special scalp condition because he noticed uneven thinning. Other places I had consulted with didn't pay attention to that and merely wanted to schedule me literally the following week. My scalp biopsy checked out fine and I was still nervous about the procedure. Nonetheless it went so smooth last July 2016 and I wouldn't hesitate to have more done in the future to keep up with thinning as I age. I recently came in for a 14 month follow up with Dr. Carman and he prescribed me a finasteride so I would increase the amount of time before needing another transplant. I'm pleased with the results and it went so smooth I can only hope Dr. Carman is still practicing for some of my future transplants.

So Happy!

I am so happy with the work from Dr. Carman and his team. I am now six months since the procedure and the improvement is night and day. Thank you so much!

Very happy with the results

It's been 9 months since my procedure and I couldn't be happier with the results. It's been an unbelievably great feeling watching my hair get fuller with every passing month. My experience with Dr. Carman and his team before, during, and after the procedure is worthy of 5 stars. The thing that has impressed me the most, other than the results of course, are the spot on expectations that Dr. Carman set throughout the whole process. For those of you worried about the possible discomfort during and after the procedure (like I was). The discomfort was a lot less than I had imagined. The discomfort that I did experience was more than manageable. If you're thinking about having a hair transplant then I recommend meeting with Dr. Carman. I'm glad I did. Thank you Dr. Carman and team!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Hi Dr. Carman, I never got the chance to thank you from the bottom of my heart of such an amazing job you did on the scar on my head. What touches me is your generosity and your passion in healing people. I told you I was born with a scar on my head, but didn't have the opportunity until then to get work on it. Instead of hair transplant you did a scalp technique which was brilliant. Although, I didn't ask for it I appreciate the discount you offered. I will always be grateful to you for giving me back my confidence and your generous heart.

Very Happy

Very happy with my results. I was even given a 2% travel discount since I lived in Los Angeles. I was not told about this discount until my second consultation meeting so FYI. But the doctor did a fantastic job and I will be having at least one more surgery done in the future. Im an actor so my looks are my paycheck. 🙂

Highest Quality Surgical Service

Dr Carman and Staff;

I have been a practicing surgeon for the past 37 years so believe me I know how to pick a good surgeon. I chose Dr. Carman to perform my procedure for several reasons.

First, Dr. Carman is caring and genuinely interested in his patients and in doing the right thing and doing it well. He is, as we physicians know him, the Doctor’s Doctor. We trust him because we understand he cares; because he is genuine; and because we all know he will tell us the truth and explain what can (and should) be done, and what cannot (and should not) be done. Dr. Carman’s honesty propels his dedication to quality patient care.

Second, because of Dr. Carman’s training in surgery and specifically in plastic and reconstructive surgery, along with his years of experience and excellent documented outcomes, he has perfected his art of hair restoration surgery. Dr. Carman performs surgery with a degree of quality and dedication that I, as a fellow surgeon, can truly appreciate.

Third, as all truly excellent surgeons know, you need a first rate team to be the bestsurgery is a team effort mastering hundreds of details and steps. Dr. Carman, through Pam, Rebecca, Monica, Lisa, Judy and Diana has assembled a team equally dedicated to patient care thus assuring consistent results they each can truly be proud of.

Finally, Dr. Carman is simply a nice guy. He is real and you can talk to him. You can honesty express your interests and concerns to him. Dr. Carman has time for his patients because he is a caring individual. If you don’t feel comfortable with your doctor, and wouldn’t want to spend time with him would you want him operating on you?

In summary, I was extremely pleased and fortunate to have selected Dr. Carman as my surgeon for my hair restoration procedure. As a physician, and a patient, I continue to recommend him with the utmost confidence that he is a truly caring, dedicated, top tier professional who will deliver the highest quality surgical results possible for each and every one of his patients.
