    I've had three visits with Dr Giannotto, over several years. Dr Giannotto and his staff have always been welcoming and friendly. What I liked most was that my decisions were respected. I didn't feel like I was being persuaded to purchase more grafts then what I initially requested. When one procedure didn't result in the thickness I desired, Dr Giannotto, without my asking, did another procedure at no cost. Now it looks great. I have recommended him to others over the years.

    Met with the Dr Giannotto and he walked me through the options based on looking at my hair. I'm 36 and starting to thin out in the front and a pretty large bald spot on the back. Scheduling was very easy and the office is really nice. I decided to move forward and scheduled a week later. I cannot say enough nice things about him and the staff. They really care about your comfort and made sure I was comfortable at all times. For the most part its pretty painless. I would highly recommend them.

    I had FUT (1,300 grafts) in December 2014 and FUE robotic (about 400 grafts) in May of 2016. So, total of about 1,700 grafts. I am now 52 years old. On the positive side, the office is very clean and the staff is professional. However, the procedures yielded minimal results. I can't tell any difference in my right-center and left-center hairlines, which are as thin as ever. My wife can't tell any difference either. Even accounting for some continued hair loss, 1700 grafts better be noticeable

    I also had two procedures done by this "doctor". The follicles were harvested with the ARTAS robot from the back of my head. They were inserted in an area above and slightly forward of my temples (male pattern baldness). The follicles on the right upper side of my head were inserted at an angle OPPOSITE of the angle of normal hair growth. I paid nearly $13,000 for these procedures and now I'm stuck with an ugly, obvious cowlick for the rest of my life.

    hair fell out and he let trainees do the transplant and they did a very poor job

    ARTAS robotic transplant: I had two sessions with this individual. It has been 12 months since the last session and my hair length has grown back to normal. The transplanted follicles are established. Like other patients, the transplants were planted at the wrong angle to my normal hair growth. The hair on the very front of my hairline stands straight up. My barber has confirmed that the follicles planted on the right front of my head were inserted at an angle OPPOSITE to the normal hair growt

    I should have posted the following comment years ago. After the procedure, I bought additional in house laser treatments, purchased hair products and spent $700 for a laser comb. Then I experienced the stressful deaths of THREE FAMILY MEMBERS! When my transplants didn't produce much new hair, I met with Dr.Giannotto who only agreed to replace a few transplants while trying to sell more! Insulted, I left. Today that area is a front prominent balding spot! I have felt ripped off ever since!

    I had the hair transplant procedure 8 months ago. It works. Slowly. Takes time for the body to adapt to this kind of thing. I don't wear a baseball cap around as much. Increases confidence. Have to use more shampoo now too. LOL. Worth the price. I'd do it again. No regrets. Bob in Falls Church.

    Dr. Giannotto performed three hair tramsplant procedures on me several years ago. The hair that was transplanted looks good however the donor area is a mess with bald patches because of harvesting too much hair from the left rear side of my head. I also witnessed excess donor strip(approx.1/2x3)my of hair my being disposed of after the procedure. With the money and time spent, I expected a better outcome from someone who has supposedly done numerous transplant procedures.
