While many hair restoration physicians offer free consultations for prospective patients considering hair transplant surgery, others charge an initial consultation fee.
While balding men and women would rather meet with doctors free of charge, doctors who charge a consultation fee argue that they’re being paid for their time to educate and help hair loss sufferers develop a long term hair restoration plan, some of which may never even schedule with them for surgery. On the other hand, doctors who offer free consults argue that providing free consults is not only part of the job, but it cultivates more patients for them.
