Informational Paragraph: 

As managing partner of the True & Dorin Medical Group, I exclusively practice in New York City. My partner, Dr. Robert Dorin, and I perform all procedures and specialize in pure follicular unit hair transplantation and follicular unit extraction. I have performed over 16,000 procedures including hair stransplantation, scalp reduction, Frechet scalp extension, and Frechet Triple Flap procedures.

I have brought the high standards and values of my professional training at MCGill, Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Illinois into my hair restoration practice. I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, and I am also board certified in family medicine.

In my practice, I treat every patient as an individual. I commit to achieving the highest quality result in every case. As the science of hair restoration evolves, I assure that I am offering the state of the art technology within the context of sound and established medical practice. With a constant eye on producing an undetectable and aesthetically pleasing result, my team and I are highly organized and precise in all aspects of our procedures.

I have treated treated men and women of all ages, ethnic groups, and professions. I offer prospective patients a complimentary consultation and opportunities to see many examples of my work including meeting patients.
