Dr. Panagotacos is experienced and professional. He took the time to explain the reasons for post menopausal hair loss and prescribed a successful treatment plan for me. It has been approximately 8 months and my hair growth is noticeably improving. I’m very grateful to the Doctor.

She's a perfectly fine Edno. I enjoy our visits. But her office staff is impossible to get ahold of. Logistics take MONTHS to sort out even with me calling everyday. I hardly ever can get ahold of anyone. Just try calling the main line and see if anyone picks up.

If you are not an active individual and prefer not to be, he's the doctor for you. Very caring. Don't be late! If you're 5 min late he'll turn you away even if you've waited for him for more than 30 min at previous visits.
