24/01/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Rahal and staff are probably the very best at what they do in all of North America!! From the first online consultation I had with Chad to the care I received when I went to have my transplant; and even with all the follow-up I received long after my transplant….it has been a completely life-changing experience, and I don't worry about my hair daily like I used to. I don't wear hats in public any longer, and my self-confidence has increased dramatically. I honestly don't know how anyone on here gave a negative review to Dr. Rahal. As someone who did his research for well over a full year before deciding on a surgeon, I can echo all the positive reviews here. Dr. Rahal doesn't need this review from me to help his business out at all…..the results speak for themselves. But I feel that it is certainly important to share my results with others, so that they don't make a mistake of finding a surgeon who produces sub-par work!! http://www.rahalhairtransplant.com/laketahoeguy/  Respond

16/10/13 5 5 5 5 Fantastic! Perfect dense recipient area with great looks already and extremely good post surgery care. I'm literally being petted at the clinic getting my recipient area cleaned everyday and Rahal checks my grafts himself etc. SUPERB! If you're thinking of getting a Hairtransplant, choose Dr. Rahal. I travelled all the way from Scandinavia to do this, and I have done the right thing! He's worth world-travel for his work is just amazing. I searched 2 years on forums to find the right surgeon, and I feel so lucky that I chose Dr. Rahal.  Respond

24/08/13 1 1 1 1 Terrible doctor, please don't make the same mistake I did. It was a huge regret that I'm still paying for. He rushed through the procedure and totally messed up the transplant. I am now looking for a doctor to fix his mistakes. This office only cares about money, they get their marketing manager to come see you the day after your procedure when you haven't even had the chance to heal at all. The marketing manager is very pushy and tries to get you to go on camera and make a video for them that they could post on their website, unbelievable! Please take your time and find a better doctor, there are many out there, I promise. I don't usually write these types of reviews but I could not in good conscience, not speak up. I truly hope this helps someone.

17/05/13 1 1 1 1 Although i did not end up receiving any treatment from Dr. Rahal, i am writing this to inform others of some dishonest practices, in my opinion. I had received a coupon for 61% off a $10,000+ worth of transplant procedure with a doctor in Toronto. Since i am in ottawa, i contacted Dr. Rahal to ask if they would match this promotional offer. I was assured by Tara, that i could go ahead and book a consultation with Dr. Rahal regarding this online deal, and so i did. Just prior to my appointment, i decided to re-verify that they would indeed honour the promotion given in Toronto. At this point, her being aware that the competing promotion had expired, she told me they would not honour what she had previously told me they would. I was very upset with this situation as i would absolutely have used the promotion offer in toronto if Tara had not lead me to believe i would receive the same offer here, and because of this, i was unable to afford the surgery. I have all emails saved to confirm.  Respond

04/02/12 5 5 5 5 I have had a number of consultations in Ottawa, two with Dr. Rahal. Overall, he seemed the most reputable and inspired the most confidence in me. Through my research, and canvassing a few former patients I have have found that he has a "absolute best" and 'world class' reputation. When I decide it's time to have my procedure, no question I am going with Dr. Rahal.  Respond

15/11/11 4 3 2 3 Saw Dr. Rahal for an initial transconsultation. He spent less than 10 seconds examining and concluded I was not a good candidate. His attitude was almost as if he didn't care and that nothing could be done. I was practically ushered out the door. There is a way to deliver an honest opinion - you do it with compassion. Not impressed by his deficient bedside manner.  Respond

12/01/11 5 5 5 5 I had 3 hair transplant done by doctor Rahal, 1rst one done in January of 2005, around 9000 grafts total over 3 years, the end results are amazing. He is the best surgeon I could have hoped for and a great guy to; he is there for you before, during and after your surgery. The staff working with him are very nice and caring; they take good care of your comfort. I recommend him to every one, he's the best!  Respond

29/12/10 5 5 5 5 My first hair transplant surgery (FUT: 2900 grafts) was completed by Dr. H. Rahal on December 22, 2010. I think that he has done an outstanding job, and I am very happy with my progress so far. He and his staff are very experienced, competent and conscientious, and I have received excellent post-op care. The clinic is very comfortable, and the procedure is relatively pain free. They also provide all the necessities following the operation to obtain the best possible outcome.  Respond

28/12/10 5 5 5 5 I had a transplant in December 2009 and another one in December 2010. The unregulated HT industry has an overall poor reputation because it had too many crooks and ****s. However, Dr. Rahal consistently shows very good results and has high business ethics; and he doesn't gouge people either. I don't think anyone else out there could've done a better job with my poor quality hair and skin. He's one of the best HT in the world and a nice guy, too. I strongly recommend Dr. Rahal.  Respond

18/11/10 5 5 5 5 I had surgery done by Dr. Rahal in Feb 2010. Initially I wanted more hair but Dr. rahal recommended a conservative approach to my hairloss. I found him honest with integrity. I am happy with my growth. I would recommend him to anyone who needs hair and a honest opinion to hair loss.  Respond

31/12/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Rahal is an outstanding physician with a sincere and caring approach in dealing with his patients. Always professional, his calm nature puts one at ease immediately upon stepping into his office. It is obvious that he is dedicated to his chosen profession of hair restoration. Dr. Rahal is always prepared to answer any questions throughout the entire hair restoration process, right from the consultation, which he performs himself, right to the follow-up that takes place over the next year as he monitors the results. I am very pleased with the outcome of my hair restoration procedure with this extraordinary physician. Would I recommend him to others? Absolutely, without a doubt!  Respond
