I came to We Grow Hair Indy several years ago as I was experiencing significant hair loss......................their team did an incredible job...................and to this day I am happy with the very positive results !!!
I am on my 3rd day in since my hair restoration with We Grow Hair Indy and couldn't wait to share how awesome my journey has been to date. My hair restoration journey actually began last year in late 2021. Anyone who knows me would tell you I go overboard when doing my research regarding any big investments that I make. Before I elaborate on how great the staff has been at ‘We Grow Hair Indy’, allow me to go into detail about what prompted me to start researching hair restoration in the first place?
Afterall the majority of males have some sort of hair loss, right? Don't we all just chalk hair loss off to a part of life? At least that's what I use to tell myself. Then I found myself looking through old pictures of myself, noticing 95% of those pictures were of me with a hat on. Then I started to think about the events I attend where hats aren't typically worn (church, business meetings, weddings, etc.). Seemed like every occasion I found myself wondering in mid conversation with someone, “is it my receding hairline that they’re looking at”? “Do I have some sort of comb over going on?”
That was enough to get me to the point for me to start ‘googling’ hair restoration and to see if it’s legit. One simple search had me spending hours getting to the bottom who is the best of the best in hair restoration. Every click led me to ‘We Grow Hair Indy’. After that much research I thought I would be a fool to not at least reach out to them and inquire about the process. Unlike most companies, who pay some hourly rate to an operator who could careless if you used them or not (or your hairline!), We Grow Hair Indy got me connected with the man himself, Darren Andrews.
Being a hair transplant recipient himself, you could feel Darren’s passion and belief in his company immediately. I really thought our conversation would eventually lead to the ‘used car salesman’s’ pitch. I really thought hair restoration companies would be all about doing just a good enough job the first time, so that you will end up coming back for more work down the road. Darren and his company are anything but that. I felt like Darren took a genuine interest with my case as if it were his. Out first conversation last over an hour, educating and talking like we’ve been friends for years. All though ‘We Grow Hair Indy’ has awesome financing plans, this was a procedure that I wanted to save for and pay in full. Ultimately for me, it was best that I put on hold my hair restoration for a year. I think it’s safe to say most people in Darren’s position would be ‘salty’ for investing so much time in me to only be told now isn’t the time. There were no guilt trips or saying that I better act before this deal goes away. Darren empathized and respected my decision and made it known that he would be there for me if I had any additional questions.
Insert January 2023. Some of us save for a boat or a trip to the Caribbean, knowing I was working with the best at We Grow Hair Indy, I decided my splurge was hair restoration. That lead to a in person meeting with Darren and his staff, which lead to procedure day. Everyone at WGHI has been truly amazing. From Darren to the staff keeping me informed on ‘what’s next’ via emails and phone conversations leading up to procedure day. Everyone has been engaged, caring, very information.
On procedure day I got to meet my doctor, the man Dr. James Slusher. I believe that when anyone has a surgery, they want the most detailed, precise, attentive, laser focused doctor available. Dr. Slusher is that guy. He’s a doctor that will answer any question you have but yet will be the first to tell you when he needs his total concentration when working on your hairline. Bottom line he has a gift for recreating hairlines. Every great doctor, has just as great technicians who work tirelessly on graphing your harvested hairs. There is a comfort of placing your care with people who are experienced and educated in their field. Throughout the entire surgery, I always felt like I was in good hands. I am only in day three but look forward to continuing to document my journey for all to see. We no longer live in a time where hair loss is just a ‘part of life’. We Grow Hair Indy has from top to bottom, people involved who are straight up the best of the best in their field. Hair restoration is no longer, plugs. It’s YOUR HAIR, harvested, reposited on what was once your hairline, to look realistic. It’s an investment where the return pays for itself.
I appreciate that they are knowledgeable, educational and informative when it comes to the hair loss. Melissa had educated me and explained a lot of about the science of hair and why there is hair loss, I learned a lot in that few minutes listening to her. Things made sense when I learned these things, and I found out why the products and things I have been doing on my own didn't work. These educational and informative things she shared with me, back by the proven and scientific methods of growing hair convinced me that I need to make changes and investment to grow my hair healthy and strong again. I trust this company and these people.Melissa and Will are some of the kindhearted people on earth. I came here for a consultation and it was worth it, I want to go through the hair therapy treatment. A few months back, life had been hard for me. My 15 year old had been attempting suicide, and she had almost succeeded. She was unconscious and on comma at Riley for two days. The same month, my husband was diagnosed with a third cancer, osteosarcoma. We have 4 kids, 3 of them inherited my husband's childhood cancer. I am taking care of our 4 kids, which, 3 of them had inherited a childhood cancer that my husband has, three of the children are also medically diagnosed with Majorly Depressive Disorder and Generalized Anxiety, and this year has been hard, with them being in and out of the behavioral hospital. I am the only caregiver, the only provider and I had been in a lot of stress. The reason I started looking at the hair treatment was that one day after I visited my husband doing a chemo, I took my child to her appointment and we had some time to walk and I asked her to take a picture of me. The picture made my heart sank. I felt bad for this woman, she look exhausted, worn out and hair is so thin, I could almost count the strands. I cried secretly for her. That woman is me. This is the reason why I went to We grow Hair, I always have heard nice things about them and how treatments actually do work. I wanted this for myself. But I don't even know how I am gonna be able to put that investment, even on a monthly basis. I started calculating in my head while Melissa was talking to me about the plan, I started thinking what can I do? I am already struggling financially. I scolded myself for even being there, knowing I will not be able to do it. Melissa left the room, and tears welling in my eyes. She came back in with the best news I have heard so far. They will work with me to make it work financially. I couldn't believe it, this is something that only happens in dreams. Will came in, and introduce himself to me, and told me that I deserve a break, and stay strong!! What kind of company does that? Most companies would not be so kind as to take care of someone like me, they would either have me pay in full or I would be just one person that would walk out without having to get the service because she can't afford it.Melissa and Will, I am forever grateful. Your company is amazing, your staff are polite, professional and kind. The informative piece is excellent. The methods are effective. I am truly blessed to walk in your office that day.Thank you from the bottom of my heart
Wow! The whole process was amazing. The entire team was very professional. Working with Will and Darren was great. They made a point to walk me through the entire process before the procedure and ensured I understood the post procedure protocols. The entire surgical team was friendly and kept me up to date on what they were doing at that time. On the follow up/ wash day, Will and Darren both checked in on me and Elizabeth took great care of me, providing me detailed information of the post surgery protocol for the following days. I would highly recommend to anyone sitting on the fence on whether or not to do it.
My initial and secondary consultation with Will was the deciding factor in moving forward with my procedure. Will was insightful and honest in setting my expectation with the results. He was right on the money. Could not be happier with the results. Staff support prior, during and after post Ops was caring and thoughtful with their due diligence. Thank you Indy team.
Staff from the front desk all the way to the Doctor were wonderful!!!!!!!!😃
I love my new hair. 😎
I wouldn’t go any other place if you are looking for a hair graft.
Thanks a million We Grow Hair Indy. 👍
Wow the results, better than I had hoped, can’t say enough good things about
PAI medical group.
The whole team at
We grow hair Indy
were extremely professional . Todd had walked me through the entire procedure and what to expect and answered every question I had which put me at ease . And thank you Elizabeth and the rest of the support team after the hair graft procedure the 24 / 7 Seven day a week hotline To answer any questions that I may have needed…
Top notch !!!
I discovered my crown was thinning. I went to we grow hair Indy and Darren suggested the laser hair treatment from their machines along with a home device and special shampoo and conditioner. He also taught me a scalp massage treatment to loosen skin and help growth. A year later and I can’t even tell I had a problem. Thank you!
My friend referred We Grow Hair Indy and right from the start Darren Andrews took care of me very well. Very informative on what procedures to go with and the options. Right now I’m at 8 months post procedure and I see amazing results already. I follow the daily routine as suggested and I can see the improvements every month. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
I’m just 4 months out from my EVT procedure with We Grow Hair Indy/PAI Medical Group, and all I have to say is WOW! I hoped for strong results but honestly didn’t expect to see results like these this early on. In addition to the procedure, which only lasted about 15 minutes, I supplement it with daily Rogain foam and 1mg of finasteride which both have proven to help slow hair loss and support hair growth. Trust me, the investment for this procedure was well worth it. My hair is all around more dense, my scalp on my crown is barely showing and my front hairline is filling out more every week. Darren and his team were fantastic to work with, very communicative and profesional, and I’d absolutely do it all over again….but the great thing is I don’t need to! The procedure was a one and done for me, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Can’t wait to see what the difference is in another 3, 6, 9 months!
Just Do It!!! I have had an amazing experience with We Grow Hair Indy. Hair thinning and loss is prominent in my family and I was anxious that I would lose all of my hair. I am an avid runner but don't like wearing hats, but in recent years have had to do so to avoid getting sunburned on top of my head. My 3 daughters have all gotten married in the last 8 months and I looked soooo much better for the most recent wedding compared to the wedding last August. My initial consultation with Todd was very informative and thorough. I am a physician so I have a unique perspective of how procedures and treatments need to be explained to patients. Todd walked me through the process and answered all of my questions. I had Multi-Unit Hair Grafting in September 2021. The day of my procedure was very smooth. Darren, Elizabeth, and the rest of the team greeted me and made me feel very welcome. I was very comfortable during the procedure and because of the sedation did not remember much about it. I did have some pain the night of my procedure but with pain meds I was able to keep it under control. They are very thorough in providing discharge instructions and follow-up. I followed the instructions to a T, because I wanted to get the best possible result from my procedure. It is crucial to follow the instructions especially in the first few weeks. The hardest part of the process is the first 2-3 months when the hair is growing back. I did feel somewhat self-conscious, but in the grand scheme of things, it wasn't a big deal. The time goes by fast. Because I am a cardiologist, I was able to wear a surgeon's cap at work and then baseball caps when I was out in public. After 3-4 months, I no longer needed to cover my head. I have continued to follow the instructions that were provided, which is also important. I continue to use minoxidil foam twice daily. I also use the HairMax LaserBand 82. I bought one new on eBay and saved over $100 compared to what I would pay on the HairMax website or Amazon. Finally, I take dutasteride which helps maintain my hair. Even after 6 months, I can tell that my hair continues to get thicker. I can feel more "baby hairs" coming through. I still wear a hat while running, although I don't need to. I have gotten a lot of compliments and remarks from family and friends about how great and young I look. For anyone who is considering hair replacement at We Grow Hair Indy, I would say Just Do It! You will not regret it.
I cannot say enough about my experience with We Grow Hair Indy. This group from top to bottom is the most caring , attentive, medical professional organization I have had the pleasure of doing business with in my life. I was a toupee client today of theirs for years and when I was ready to inquire about a transplant they evaluated if I was a viable candidate and once I found out that I was they didn’t pressure me at all. I then asked what must have seemed like endless questions;) but they answered them with patience and thoughtfulness. The procedure was just as described and the doctor was nothing short of an amazing artist!! I have my own hair back for the first time in 30 years. I swim with my grandchildren’s more active then ever at 56. All I can say is don’t even bother with Hair Club or Bosley. PAI Indy is the best!! My barber even says this is the most natural hair transplant she has seen in over 25 years of hair cutting and if she didn’t know I had it done she could never detect it. Lastly my wife LOVES it and that is the ultimate. Thank you Todd, Darren and the team I couldn’t be happier!!!
I’m very pleased with the outcome of my experience with PAI as a whole. The staff was very consultative and answered questions with no pressure on my first visit. I scheduled a transplant procedure about a month later. Honestly everything during and after went exactly as described. I’m about 13 months out now and the results are great. Hairline is restored and I don’t really even think about it anymore vs. thinking man my hair is falling out... Overall I would highly recommend working with PAI/We Grow Hair Indy if you’re thinking about doing it. Better to say “I’m glad I did” instead of “I wish I had”!
Absolutely FANTASTIC experience! I am at my 5 month post surgery mark and couldn't be happier with my results...and I still have 50% growth left! Every single person I worked with was amazing - from the staff, to the nurses and doctor, and most importantly - my consultant Will Saddler. He was incredibly personable, an absolute expert in the field, and just a great person to talk with. He has always made himself available to answer questions. If you are thinking about hair transplant surgery you should 100% talk with We Grow Hair Indy! You won't regret it...and neither will your scalp!
Like too many of us guys, I was in a combination of denial, hope and a blend of not sure what to do about it. But my hair loss had been bothering me for some time. I hid it pretty well for a while, used hats and hairstyles to get away with it a little more... But I finally had to do something when I panicked if I knew someone was behind me, or being at a public get together or being in a pool. Stressing out about how I will look even with using those micro-fibers dusted on my head. That is no way to live. It made me sick to the stomach seeing pictures (even though I did my best to avoid revealing ones)... of the wrong angle in a mirror. Especially the last 6 months. It had really accelerated. And worst of all, I was embarrassed. Also in many ways, I felt guilty of caring about it so much. I mean I’m confident generally, I’ve had good success in life and should not care about hair right? I mean the Rock, Jason Statham etc are just fine right? I have friends that shave their head, so what’s wrong with me… I should be fine with it right? I wasn’t. It was making me weak and unhappy. I’d find myself being jealous of those with locks on TV or friends with thick hair. I would beat myself up for feeling that way! I had looked at solutions for some time, vitamins, Rogaine and even scalp tattoos! I had been exploring hair transplants for 2 years, but never saw results that I felt were worth it. (The recovery, the iffy results, the cost and many have to have 2-3 procedures too!...) So I just kept putting it to the side. Also seeing celebs get it done and hearing the cost of “good procedures” added to the delay. What’s the point of the results are not great? But then... after some hard discussions.... We did some research, spoke with other providers offering solutions. We found We Grow Hair Indy looked to be that much better. Their approach, the options they provided and proven results, really seemed to be a good fit. We live in Louisville KY, so I figured what’s the harm to go and have a consultation. And like the aim for my own business The Art of Simple Golf, they made it all so simple! Clearing up any confusion, concerns and removed all the noise that the hair loss "solutions" starts bombarding at you. The explanations, the friendly understanding and real approach got me feeling truly cared for. And unlike so many other businesses I had spoken with or researched, We Grow hair Indy found the solution to fit ME. The Multi graft procedure it was to be. Darren who provide my consult was brilliant, kind and professional too (despite being a little upset at the raw photos we took to examine the situation lol ) I trusted what he suggested 100%. The day of procedure came and I was nervous yes, but excited. I’m a bit of a wuss when it comes to things like that so I was nervous but the entire team of nurses and the doctor was kind, patient and reassuring. The handful of days after was Interesting with recovery and some management at home to ensure best results and speedy “get back to normal” life. Even just a few weeks after my surgery, baby “sproutlings” started to really show. Even from 90 day post procedure and now, I walk around in stores and alike with no hat and with confidence! I can’t wait to be filming on the golf course soon without HAVING to wear a hat! You hear stories of celebrities getting it done, you see adverts on tv or online, you then read reviews, and perhaps some sound amazing… you see pics of before and afters… And want that to be you right? And it’s ok to feel that. It just took me way too long to admit it and being OK about not being OK with the hair loss and it’s acceleration. But now I’m well on my way to be on the other side of things. I just cannot thank the team at We Grow Hair Indy enough. All I can say is, wherever you are, if you are ready to say “I do want to feel good about my hair. It’s ok that I don’t and Its ok to do something about it”. Go see them. They will find the very best solution for you.
For years I struggled with hair loss. As my hairline continued to recede and the crown of my head began to thin, I would consider what kind of look my future held. I didn’t think I would ever get cosmetic surgery for it, that just seemed unrealistic or out of reach. Then one day I saw a targeted ad for PAI Medical Group. I looked into it briefly and entered my information in their site. I figured, what could it hurt? Well they were very quick and persistent in getting back to me. I was able to do a remote conference with Darren (as I do not live in Indianapolis) and was very impressed with how thoroughly he discussed the process and addressed my concerns. From there the process went incredibly smoothly. The team was always in contact with me to make sure any of my questions or concerns were addressed. The procedure itself went well, and the healing process, though naturally uncomfortable at times, was very quick. The best part, naturally, was watching as the hair begin to grow in the months following the procedure. I am currently 8 months post-procedure and am already very pleased with the results. See my attached photo, and I think you will agree.
Fantastic experience with PAI Medical Group and their staff! As a 23 year old male, my hair was thin and my hairline was basically non-existent. Balding at such a young age was tough to handle mentally, and I am glad I made the choice to go with PAI Medical Group. I opted for the Multi-Unit Hair Grafting. I had no pain on the day of the procedure and only normal soreness for maybe up to a week after. After two and a half weeks, I was able to wear a hat and already return to work. It's now been a year since my procedure and the results are incredible! It's nice to actually have a hairline now as well as thicker hair in where I was thinning! I've had a huge change in my overall confidence especially since I no longer have the need to always wear a hat. Big thanks to Darren and the entire staff at PAI Medical Group for being there with me along my journey!
I have nothing but great things to say about the PAI Medical Group in Indy. The only regret i have is not having done my procedure sooner. My confidence levels are simply up the roof after having gone through the ARTAS multigraft procedure. The consultation and every step was communicated very clearly and concisely by the PAI team I was assigned to, especially Will who has guided me and answered the endless questions I had. For the men who are on the fence about this, hear this from someone who has gone through it: don't hesitate and wait any longer! You will not regret it!
My experience was great at We Grow Hair Indy. Staff was always great with communicating my schedule and everything was in order for me. Darren walked me through day one of exactly how the day of surgery would go!!! My hair looks great a year after the procedure! All of my follow up visit's have been quick and easy and I am glad I chose PAI Medical Group to help with my hair loss problem. I highly recommend them if you are looking!!!
I had high expectations looking through their before/after pics and portfolio, but my personal experience still exceeded them. 12 months after my procedure I couldn’t be happier with my results. The staff and surgeon was super honest, transparent, informative, and positive the whole way. Nate is the man!
To the entire PAI Team, I wanted to take a second and thank each of you for such an outstanding experience. I am 2 weeks post transplant and my hair is growing in and starting to look amazing! Truly looking forward to the next upcoming months. But more importantly, I wanted to send out a thanks to every person who participated in my surgery and care. Your team at the front desk ALL were smiling, helpful, and very genuinely happy to see my wife and I. Which shows you are not only hiring the right people, but creating an environment they enjoy to work in. All of the nursing staff, Elizabeth and Jillian, were very knowledgeable and ensured every question was answered. Dr. Pawlinga was very thorough when we met. First class experience. Already referred your clinic to a friend of mine who thinks he will be moving forward in a year or two. Thanks again and have a wonderful evening! Really looking forward to the results!
Hair loss is something that has been plaguing me for about 15 years. I've tried just shaving it and pretending it wasn't an issue, but I missed having hair. I've used minoxidil and finasteride for years and it stabilized my hair loss, but it never caused any to regrow. I had considered a hair transplant for years but I could never pull the trigger. Finally in July 2020, I went for it. I have to say this was one of the best decisions of my life. I had a lot of recession and thinning in my hairline and a pretty big bald spot, and with one surgery I now have a great hairline and no more bald spot. A hair transplant will never restore your hair to how thick it was when you were 18, but it moves enough hair so that you truly do have a full head of hair and coverage of the scalp. I am now free to style my hair as I choose and finally have a full head of hair again. The best part? Results take a year for full maturity, and in some cases up to 18 months for the crown. That means that I potentially have 3-9 more months of improvement. Everyone at PAI was super professional, friendly, and attentive to all my questions. The facility is top notch as well. I cannot recommend them enough!
Hair loss was something that I struggled to acknowledge. Every time I saw myself in the mirror I couldn't really grasp how badly it was happening to me. Most of the time when I went anywhere I was wearing a hat so I didn't think it mattered. Finally after discussing with my wife and hearing about it from some other people I decided I should look into what my options were. I searched around and came across PAI Medical group, I read the reviews from others who had a procedure and weighed that against how I would feel if I just completely shaved it. I scheduled my consultation and when I went in Nate and the rest of the team explained everything in a clear and concise matter. They went over all the options that were available from a system to a complete transplant. I had a lot of anxiety about it and went home wondering if I should have really went through with it. After about a month of thinking I decided I wanted to go through with it. Nate was very helpful in helping figure out financing options and we got it to a point where I was comfortable with going through it. When I went in for the procedure the entire team was wonderful. I had never been through any kind of surgical procedure before other than some dental procedures. They walked me through the procedure and everything that would happen. I spoke with several people on the day of surgery including Nate, the owner, and the doctor performing the procedure and each one was reassuring and helped relieve any anxiety. Post procedure they were very thorough and explained how to care for myself following the procedure. I am now 8 months out and I am still in awe when I look at the before and after photos and can't believe I waited this long. I cannot recommend PAI Medical Group enough.
Darren and the team at We Grow Hair Indy continue to provide excellent care and service following my multi-unit hair grafting transplant. Nearly five months following the procedure, I could not be more satisfied with the results. Like many guys, I experienced some gradual thinning up top and had a lot of questions about what could be done. Darren explained everything with crystal clarity and I was put at ease as we went into the procedure. The initial evaluation provided answers and a clear game plan. From there, the team took great care of me and continues to do so as I see the results. We Grow Hair Indy has provided top-notch service and patient care, and I'm glad I found their team.
I went in with my wife and had 0 intentions of doing any procedure. They had an opening for the following Monday and I went forward with it. I can’t tell you how happy I am with the results. Again, I was always a skeptic when I would see the commercials on tv, but 6 months in, it truly has made me look 10-15 years younger. Thanks Darren!
This place relived a huge stress off of me worrying about my hair loss (which stress can cause hair loss) my mother's father was balding bad and had skin cancer on his scalp growing up I saw how this affected him. Which is something I never wanted to go through. This procedure gave me back the hair I lost on my crown and thickened in my existing hair line up front. Now out in the wind, on my Harley, on the creek kayaking my wild hair can do what it wants and I don't have to worry about if the bald is showing. The staff was more than Kind, and genuinely cared about my recovery, concerns or any other questions I may have had. The procedure was in and out home that night and back the next morning for cleanup. The procedure was on a Thursday and I spend Friday Saturday and Sunday recovering. Then it was back to work on Monday! The thought was always in the back of my mind. Everyone can see it... What would they think... but everyone was supportive, inquisitive and thoughtful. Now when I see people I was around during the whole process I still get complements on how good it looks. I even get the regular complements I used to get back in the day! Never thought I'd need this in my life at then 34, but it's the best investment in myself I've ever done!
Darren and his team are incredibly helpful and professional, they walked me through every step of the process, told me what to expect, and provided excellent after care with checkups four months and one year after the procedure. It was done so well that there is no noticeable scar unless you look closely, and the hairline is so natural that not a single person has noticed anything other than my haircut seeming better than usual. During my research I saw that many people opt to travel to other countries like Turkey to get it done for much cheaper, but it's a much safer bet to get it done close to home with minimal travel, easier in person check ups, and a reputable company held up to US medical regulation standards. In the end the cost was 100% worth it to have the peace of mind.
I am a 36 year African American male and I did research before I had the procedure done. I can say the process was excellent, they answered all of my questions about any concerns I had and made me feel really comfortable even on my follow up appointments. I highly recommend.
Over the past several years I had noticed increased thinning around my crown line. A friend of mine, had posted on Facebook he had recently done a hair transplant at WeGrowHairIndy and showed the progress in his new hair growth. It was impressive to say the least. I really didn’t think this was ever an option for me but my friend told me it was one of the best decisions he’s ever made and did not regret it. He recommended I go for a free consult and met with Darren. From the very beginning, Darren was incredibly informative and helpful in determining the procedure that best fit the thinning of my crown. Ultimately, I went with the Multi-grafting procedure and it has been one of the best decisions I have made. Knowing my thinning would continue to progress, I knew it was an investment which I wouldn’t regret. Everything from the initial consult, to the process, to post-op has been exactly how they explained it. There have been no surprises, only results. If you are looking for a place to remedy your hair loss, look no further than WeGrowHairIndy. Call now and at least do the consult. It costs you nothing but an hour of your day!
I’m a professional tennis player from Indy and Darren and the whole staff did a great job accommodating my tight schedule and had me ready to go when my season started. More importantly, they did a great job with my procedure and I really like the natural look they gave me as well as all the positive feedback I’ve gotten. Great experience
As a guy in his mid to upper 20’s I definitely began this journey with my own personal reservations. After going through it I can honestly say, i couldn’t be happier with my decision to go forward with procedure. Darron and the We Grow Hair Indy team made this whole process stress free and enjoyable. I encourage anyone that’s interested in any hair loss treatments or even just curious in what they have to offer just to schedule the free consultation!
This place is AMAZING and very professional went down there for my free consultation and found the solution I need, can't wait to get the work done by them. Darren is the best and gives you his full undivided attention when you are there. Highly recommend this place for all your hair loss solutions needs. Very impressed with the professionalism as soon as you walk in the door, the staff is very inviting and welcoming and attentive and that speaks volumes for first impressions. You get to do a one on one with Darren Andrews himself, and he doesn't disappoint. We weighed all my options and came to a solution that was affordable and the best option. I just know I've chosen the right place to get the right work done.
About Me: Male, early forties, active-duty military with hair loss starting around age 30. Multi-Unit Hair Grafting (MUHG) procedure August 30, 2020 nearly 2000 grafts placed. Pre-Procedure: I had 2 consults with Darren, and multiple emails regarding specific questions about the process. Do your research, ask questions, and develop realistic expectations. There is a lot of information on the internet, and some “too good to be true” results. Take your lifestyle into account, if you’re a smoker, heavy drinker, or on different types of medication, it could impact the long-term outcome of a hair procedure. Rule of thumb- if you are bald before your procedure, chances are you won’t have super-thick Fabio hair after one procedure- but you should have hair. Make sure to read all of the preparatory instructions, and follow them; “stop taking aspirin, using minoxidil, etc.” and remember Individual Results May Vary. Procedure: PAI had just moved into their current location. The facility was clean, staff was friendly, and COVID protocols were a little more stringent. Darren walked me through the process and “drew” an outline of my hairline before the procedure. I was properly anesthetized, so I have no memory of the actual procedure, a few hours later I awoke with a very red scalp and a band around the sutures. Note: *You will definitely need someone to drive you home, and make sure you don’t scratch / bump your head. You will definitely want a partner or helper for about 72-96 hrs. post-op, depending on how quickly you can recover. Post- Procedure: Just like the pre-procedure, Follow Instructions! There’s a big window of no- alcohol, nicotine, etc. A hair procedure is a big investment, so take care of it. Now, I haven’t read too many other testimonials that address post-op pain, so I will be honest. The first 48 hours (after the surgical sedatives wore-off) were the most painful hours of my life. The pressure and pain in my head were unlike anything I’ve ever experienced, and it made me begin to regret the entire decision. Happy to announce that the pain goes away, and is replaced by anxiousness as you try to “watch” your hairs grow multiple times a day. I began prescription finasteride and attempted topical minoxidil. Unfortunately, early use of minoxidil caused rashes on my face and I had to wait until after the 6-month mark to begin using minoxidil daily. My results were very disheartening to begin with, even at the 8-month mark, I had a spot of significantly thinner hair which was concerning. However, by 12 months post-op, even the very thin area had grown in. Being patient and following good hair-health guidelines truly paid off. Sutures and scarring. As an active-duty Soldier, I keep my hair very short on the sides (skin-fade). I was initially concerned about the scarring that the sutures would leave. Absolutely, NO issues. Per instructions provided, I was diligent about applying Mederma scar therapy to the scar line once the sutures were removed for approximately one month. My scarring had faded significantly by 6-months and is completely undistinguishable now. Conclusion: My hair restoration journey has been effective, and I know I made the right choice for me. I am far more confident with my hair and overall appearance. I very rarely wear any of my previously requisite ball caps, now. The doctors and staff at We Grow Hair Indy are extremely knowledgeable, professional, patient and willing to answer questions. Hair transplantation is a big decision which requires research and expectation management. I’m not sure I would have made this decision without the amazing team at PAI.
I consulted with Will back in 2020 (virtually) as a close friend of mine had his procedure done here and had great results and I wanted the same. He was extremely helpful and thorough and described the entire process to me (which was exactly how my friend mentoined it). I had a procedure on the books last year but because of work obligations and the pandemic it wasn't able to happen and they returned my financial deposit back to me. When things cleared up work wise and restrictions d/t COVID were lifted I was able to schedule an appointment for October 2020. The process was easy to follow and Will and the doc were great. It's been a little over 1 year and my results have been incredible. Easily noticeable from people close to me and it has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. I highly recommend it to anyone that has experienced significant thinning and hair loss d/t a variety of reasons (stress, genetics, environment, poor nutrition, etc.).
Would like to thank everyone from PAI, from Darren all the way down to the girls in front office everyone was awesome!!!!! I had the multi-unit hair grafting. I’m 42 , I started losing my hair mid-late 20’s and it always bothered me. I had went to another hair transplant company years ago, and looking back I wish I’d done more research before moving forward with the other company. I should have went to PAI the 1st time, I love my results and would do it again tomorrow!!! So if hair loss bothers you like it did me, go talk to to Darren and the staff at PAI.
This experience was the absolute best decision I have ever made for myself, hands down. From the moment I was searching around for places to get this done, I knew I needed to do my research and find a place where I felt most comfortable and not pressured. I initially did a virtual consultation which was very informative by Nate. After further consideration, I decided to sign up and make a deposit but then backed out because I did not feel as though I was ready just yet. No one was pressuring, they completely understood that not only is this is a big financial decision, but it's a big life decision with potential regret involved. I let them know I would take my time, do further research and ultimately decide if this was that important for me. I contacted them a year later, and decided to take another stab at this idea. I made a few hour trek to visit their office and meet the staff in person. Everyone was extremely welcoming and Nate took his time to sit with me and discuss options, etc. without once making me feel like I was a burden or "this guy will back out again, let's not waste our time". Nope, absolutely professional. I signed up there on the spot and my procedure was set for Nov. of 2020. It was a nerve wracking experience but the Doctor/staff were very comforting. The day of surgery seemed to whiz by! I was so happy when it was done but you gotta be ready to have some shock when you see your swollen face/bandaged up head and I'll admit I had a couple thoughts of "what did I just do to myself", but I told myself to follow their instructions to the T, and just to not think about it and wait it out, and if I can make it through then it'll be all worth it. The staff was gracious enough to keep in touch with me during my process, and any questions I had I felt comfortable enough to even text one of them and ask. Not once did they make it seem like I wasn't allowed to do that or I was a bother of any sort. Needless to say, the other day marked my 1 year anniversary and that is ultimately the "final result" stage. I am absolutely blown away at my result. I was 29 at the time of surgery and I had a fairly bad receding hairline, classified as a Norwood 3. I always had long hair past my shoulders and it was still thick enough to conceal my hair loss but it bothered me every day, multiple times a day. Once my new hair began growing in the later stages is when I decided to finally cut my hair short to match the newly grown hair. I am now 30 and look like I am 20 again. I have a perfect hairline, completely natural appearance and I am just astonished as to how much this has helped my mental health, self esteem, etc. I would 150% recommend We Grow Hair Indy to anyone. The thing is, you must be realistic in your expectations! There is complete transparency here, no unrealistic promises are ever made, and regardless of how well performed the surgery was, there is always a chance for a bad outcome and that is a risk you must be willing to take! If you're 60 years old and have a Norwood 6 level of hair loss, then do not go into this procedure expecting a youthful head of hair, it's just not going to happen, but if you have realistic goals, and you are optimistic you will get a good result but also complacent in the fact that there is risk involved, then you are probably the right candidate for the job. Thank you again We Grow Hair Indy team! You truly changed my life.
After 4 months post surgery, I couldn’t be happier. As a younger guy, having hair loss so soon was something that scared me as I was moving into the professional world post-college. After being recommended to PAI/We Grow Hair Indy, I knew I needed to get something done. Darren and the entire staff have been great during this process and are incredibly knowledgeable. After 4 months I can see a huge difference for the better and I am only more and more excited to see the results moving forward. PAI/We Grow Hair Indy has been there every step of the way and I couldn’t thank them enough!

What an incredible experience from beginning to end....and there is still more to come! I actually had a consultation in 2015 with PAI that I did not follow through with. When I decided to revisit the clinic in March of 2021, the clinic director, Darren Andrews, actually remembered me and still had all my information from over 5 years prior! As alluded to, I had my procedure (Multi-Unit Hair Grafting) done at the end of March 2021. The consultation prior to the procedure was thorough, informative, and eased a lot of anxiety I had going in. I actually spent 30 minutes talking to the doctor about nothing hair related; and right before the procedure too! The point being, I felt very much at ease although I was about to have a very personal procedure performed and where I knew true results could take months to see. But alas, I had an incredibly successful procedure where my donor area yielded roughly 1,700 grafts which, in my case, was over 7,800 hairs!!! That, in addition to a PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, injection at the time of my procedure & daily usage of Minoxidil/Propecia has given me such positive yield, I am still amazed at how much hair I have....and after only 8 months. It takes about a year to see the full results....I still have 4 more months of growth! But don't take my word for it...see for yourself...I included photos (before and after)!!!! @We Grow Hair Indy.....You are all incredible and the work you do has brought many a smile to faces from all over, myself included! @You.....If you are considering We Grow Hair Indy, take the leap! One of my favorite quotes of all time goes something like, 'A year from now, you'll wish you started today!'
I would highly recommend We Grow Hair Indy to anybody looking at a hair restoration procedure. After years of feeling conscious about my hair loss, I decided to take the plunge. The process right the way through from the initial consultation with Darren, to the aftercare and post treatment has been top notch. Needless to say the results have been exceptional. I am now 18 months post procedure, and I could not be happier. To anybody who worries daily about their hair loss and is considering a procedure - my advice is DO IT. It has done wonders for my confidence and the only thing I would do differently is that I would have had it done years ago. Thank you to Darren and all of the team.
I visited the office in 2016 as I was experiencing post-partum hair loss and felt hopeless about ever getting my hair to grow back. Once I met the team they restored my hope and suggested I use a combination of laser hair therapy and PRP. After about 6 weeks I noticed some of my hair growing back around my hairline, and luckily the shedding of hair slowed down tremendously. I know if it wasn’t for this service I may have never grown back what I had lost. Forever grateful!!
WOW! Those are the exact words I say when I look at my hair and how far it has come after doing the Multi Unit Hair Transplant... Its believably unbelievable and I don't know how else to express these amazing results. I am an Executive Director of a skilled nursing facility and I have been in Health Care for over 24 years. It never really cross my mind that there were places to fix my receding hairline or the general thinning of the front and top part of my head until someone brought it up in a conversation. My hair was a sensitive subject to me however once I knew there was a solution I was highly curious. I made an appointment and from the moment I walked in I knew that this place had their stuff together and that I was in good hands. I was greeted with the utmost kindness and after filling out some papers I immediately met with the Clinical Director Will. Will thoroughly explained the process to me and never in my life have I felt more educated about hair until I met the group at We Grow Hair Indy. The day of my procedure I met with Dr. Pawlinga, the man who does it all! He explained the procedure to me, drew up my hairline as well as discussing what would be age appropriate so that it can look as natural as possible! What was the most reassuring to me is that this is all that Dr. Pawlinga does and that he always works with the same team. He has this form of surgical art down to the T and I am beyond speechless with my results. What was highly impressive was not just this amazing procedure however, the continues follow ups afterward was above and beyond. I had two milestone appointments with Will and having him in way "cheer my hair growth on" made the subject that use to be so sensitive to me, is something I bring up to everyone now because I am so proud of it. I'm not even 6 months post surgery and my results are beyond what I expected. I would HIGHLY recommend this process to anyone, I actually feel the way I look now and I don't have to hide behind a hat anymore... the only thing that I regret is that I did not do this sooner in life!!
When I met with Nate Shaffer for my consultation, I can’t say enough great things about him!! So professional and so knowledgeable! I will be getting this procedure done in a few months for sure!! Not that I had to be sold, but after Meeting with Nate, I had no doubts!! Thank you Nate!!
Great group of people. Always a great atmosphere. Couldn’t ask for a better experience going through this process!
I cannot say enough positive things about my experiences with the entire team at We Grow Hair Indy. Each staff member (medical and non-medical) I came into contact with, whether directly or otherwise, was a consummate professional with the highest of standards that are to be recognized and commended. They were absolutely incredible and certainly set a high bar for excellence. I am grateful I chose them for my needs and cannot say enough great things about my experiences with the team. Thank you so much! Highly, highly recommend.
Darren and the team are amazing and I absolutely love the finished product from them. The whole process Darren and his team were so kind and helpful with any questions and concerns that I had. Would highly recommend WeGrowHairIndy to anyone wanting their hair back!
Professional and personable from my consultation to post care follow up...If final results are as good as the staff I'll be extremely happy!
Darren and everyone at PAI have been great! They have always been very helpful and willing to answer any questions or concerns I had. 1 year after my surgery I see the full results and am very happy that I took the leap and had it done!
One year later and my new barber (we moved) could not tell I had had a transplant! Worth the investment in my career, my feelings of confidence, and ease of getting ready in the morning! No problems at all, looks great and natural. Couldn't be happier at the one year mark!
I began my journey for hair loss reversal, approximately 2 years ago (2018). After appointments with 2 physicians (different specialties) to determine a medical cause for loss of 75% of my hair (noted by my hair stylist of 17 years), the only possible cause was related to surgery, 4 months prior, and a severe reaction to a pneumonia vaccine. My hair was aggressively falling out, but after the vaccine it came out in clumps, as if I were a chemo patient. I met with the staff at Transitions. My "Complementary Consultation and exam" went extremely well. I might add that I am a Family Nurse Practitioner, so I had medical questions that needed answers. I made the decision that PRP treatments, combined with laser therapy and hair/scalp products would hopefully reverse my hair thinning and loss. I had my first PRP treatment and found it to be no more uncomfortable that Botox injections. I was able to return to work that same day. I purchased 4 treatments and always made sure I was scheduled for the appropriate day between treatment sessions. It has been nearly 2 years and I have had 7 treatments. There are no words to express how amazing these PRP treatments, combined with laser and products have been for my hair loss. My salon stylist simply cannot believe how the 75% hair loss has reversed and almost all hair has returned. Friends and family, as well, have given me positive feedback.... "What are you doing to your hair???.... It looks fabulous!!!!" I could never be happier. I must also add that the staff at Transitions, from the front desk to medical professional providing the treatment are exceptionally professional, while also very down-to-earth. I have never felt self conscious about walking into Transitions office setting, Again, the staff, several of whom have had treatments/procedures themselves, make clients feel welcome and comfortable. I highly recommend Transitions to anyone who has experienced hair thinning/ hair loss.
I had my procedure 17 months ago and couldn't be happier, i was skeptical at first but the results are proven. I would recommend to anyone who is a good candidate.
Over the past two years my hair began to thin rapidly until there were several patches on the crown of my head and my scalp could be seen. On the side of my head the hair was thin and limp. I tried several natural remedies and supplements but nothing helped. My primary physician referred me to Transitions. I am three months into the laser therapy and I am thrilled with the results. The thin patches have filled in and my hair is significantly thicker on the sides and back. I have also begun using Transitions' hair products and they are awesome. I couldn't be more pleased.
My experience with PAI Medical was spectacular! Darren and the entire staff were knowledgeable, professional and very pleasant. The doctors and technicians are highly skilled. Which explains why my results are amazing. I should have done this sooner.
My experience with PAI Medical Group has been incredible!! Everything - from my first phone call inquiring about their FREE consultation to my post procedure follow up, this company displayed outstanding professionalism. They are an exceptional team of very knowledgeable and truly skilled individuals that really CARE about their clients. Will Saddler, Darren Andrews and Dr. Christopher Pawlinga were quite amazing to work with on my journey to hair replacement! The entire staff at PAI Medical Group are efficient, polite, friendly and genuinely CARE about you. I cannot express this enough - We Grow Hair Indy is the REAL DEAL. My procedure was painless. The staff explained every detail along the way about hair replacement and the different options available. Whenever I have questions or concerns, Will is there to assist, even after hours! The customer service is outstanding. Thanks to these absolutely wonderful people, my life has changed for the better - both personally and professionally. I am loving life and serving the community with a full head of hair! THANK YOU!! Christopher Moser Licensed Funeral Director (Indiana & Michigan)
Honestly I'm shocked at how fast the hair starts to grow. It feels as if it was only yesterday I was asking for an appointment with Darren. The man really knows his stuff!The staff are extremely nice and helpful. I thought the experience might be stressful but honestly it heals so darn fast no one has time to notice a change until its all over... one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Everything was a 5 across the board. In the consultation, Darren's advice was on-target and the final result was better than projected. I appreciated being called about how I was feeling after the procedure. Later, I had some ingrown hairs and they were promptly resolved. The surgical experience was very professional, and resulted in minimal pain. My barber continues to be amazed at how many hairs were transplanted, and how natural and age appropriate my hairline is!
When I did my initial research on hair restoration, it became highly apparent my best shot at successful hair restoration would stem from working with a specialist. Thanks to WEGROWHAIRINDY, I am about 13 months post procedure and I couldn't be happier with the results. Meeting with Darren and hearing his own story gave me the confidence to invest in myself. My experience with the staff has been a blessing. On the day of the procedure, they took exceptional care of me and did a great job of making me comfortable. In addition to a successful procedure, Darren and the staff were very helpful in teaching me how to take better care of my hair. WEGROWHAIRINDY was very honest with me about what steps I would need to take in order to have the best shot of successful hair restoration. The results are in. Thanks WEGROWHAIRINDY!
I knew I was balding but didn't realize how bad it was until looking at my "before" photos. I am amazed at the difference having more hair has made in my self-esteem. Had thought about having this done for a long time and now wish I hadn't waited so long.
In the consultation Nate explained absolutely everything to me. I had a lot of questions and follow-up phone calls and he was more than accommodating. Dr. P was awesome! He took time to go over exactly what would take place. He even eased my wife's mind. Dr. P. and everyone who worked on me were amazing. I can't imagine being better taken care of. The procedure was seamless. The medical team were the most professional people I've been around in terms of medical care. They all made me feel great. Everyone I dealt with after the procedure was amazing. They all made me feel extremely comfortable and assured.
The website was easy to find and had many Q&As to learn more. Nate was great and took plenty of time to be sure I had all I needed to make the best choice for me. Dr. W. was also great! Dr. W. and Nate answered my questions before the procedure and I look forward to my upcoming 4 month follow-up meeting. I highly recommend PAI for anyone experiencing any form of hair loss. Some of the best money I've ever spent. Thank you!
They were never sales oriented, it was all very informative. I felt a personal connection with Dr. W. The overall professionalism and level of care was excellent.
I've seen the TV ads and heard the radio ads for years. All are done in a professional manner. The website is very comprehensive and helpful. Nate did a tremendous job in the consultation. He explained the entire process very well, answered all of my questions. I would rate Nate a "10." Dr. G. was very pragmatic and helpful. He put me at ease and provided a lot of practical advice. Everything is working to plan!
I liked the follow-up letters letting me know what I should be experiencing at that point in time - they were spot on. I was very satisfied with the overall procedure and success.
I'm shocked over the results. I have more hair than I know what to do with. Expectations are exceeded! Everyone notices the change! I was pleased with everything and have referred several friends.
Excellent from my first phone call to my follow-up care! Absolutely recommend to friends & family! The consultation was professional - no sales pitch - no false promises. Accurate, informative, and welcoming. Will is amazing! He took so much time with me and answered every question and concern. The surgery was so easy! Everything explained thoroughly! The follow-up care couldn't have been better! Each time I visited all staff took time to greet me by name and "took a look" to be certain all was going well and as planned.
Everyone I have dealt with has been extremely pleasant and helpful. I would strongly recommend your organization to others. Overall professionalism was excellent.
My surgical experience and follow-up care were great! Darren is awesome and always got back to me right away. Everything the docs or Darren said would happen has happened or is happening. Looking forward to the rest of the growth in coming months!
Each person involved in my procedure was very helpful and thoroughly explained the process - thank you! I felt very comfortable in the consultation and felt that the prognosis of my potential results was honest and well explained. The follow-up care was good and always timely. My surgical experience was very positive. Dr. G was very nice and encouraging. He did a great job. My experience was very positive. I felt very well taken care of!
The care and concern that I received from start to finish was wonderful. Thank you for all the help, support, and guidance!
So happy I decided to do this. I’m a year post-op and I could not be happier with my results. The staff at PAI are exceptional and made everything easier for me throughout the process.
I couldn’t be happier with my results. The staff is great and Darren does a great job explaining your options and what to expect.
I used to be scared to even scratch an itch on my scalp, that my hand would have hair in it when I would look at it afterwards. Not any more. I have confidence that it’s there to stay.
I will be perfectly honest I had no pain really no discomfort. I just kept thinking of the results in 4 months and now Im excited about my 1 year mark. just do it, you will not regret it. Search no more PAI is the way to go Thanks PAI
As natural as it gets! I’m 12 months post op and the new hair flows right in with the still existing hair for a seamless look that no one can recognize.
Man, am I glad I made the decision to have this procedure! Results are amazing. People constantly compliment me. I can’t wait to have my second procedure in a week. Darren was incredible. Dr. W was awesome. Everyone there is incredible! I cannot express enough how positive my experience was. If you have any doubts, read the messages below. We are all thrilled with our results.
I had multiple procedures done in the 90’s at another place and I was hesitant to try the process again. I researched and decided the MUHG process was the way to go. From the very beginning of the process PAI assured me that I would be a satisfied customer. I’m at 4 months and am already satisfied! Today was my 4 month follow up, and I was told I can expect much more coverage in the months to come. This was money well spent. If your contemplating this procedure, PAI is the way to go. They have already exceeded my expectations. The staff are well educated, and are ready to help you. Thanks PAI!
Darren and the staff are great! I chose Multi Unit Hair Grafting because you can get the procedure done in one setting. It is now 6 months post procedure and the results are amazing. If you are thinking about getting it done, don’t wait any longer than you have to.
Im so excited that I did this! I can’t believe the results I have in 4 months, Darren had shown me a before pic of when I came in for a consultation and holy cow what a huge difference, I did not realize I was so thin up there, Darren and his staff were excellent in every way . This is the best thing I have ever done PAI Thanks so much
I have actually had 3 smaller transplants in the past before PAI. At PAI I had the largest transplant of over 6000 hairs at once! I am 5 months out of the transplant and I must say my hair has not looked this good for more than a decade! As the donor area was harvested from the back of my head (the area not affected by testosterone that induces hairloss) it is permanent.
It’s amazing how quickly I was able to return to work after my PAI procedure. After my first procedure I went back to work after a three day weekend. After my second procedure I decided to give it a little more time, but I was feeling great after two days. I highly recommend the staff at PAI, from prepping to procedure, they are the best!
This is my first time visit at here and i am actually impressed to read everthing at alone place.
My procedure was on a Saturday and I went back into school the following Monday. It was not a big deal to me, and no one around asked any questions. I had slight discomfort the night after the procedure, but the next day or so I was feeling all back to normal.
It is very natural; my new barber could not tell I had the procedure.
I was really hesitant going into my procedure. I remember spending a lot of time reading these messages the night before my procedure because I was real nervous. These comments really put me at ease. I can safely tell you that I experienced very little pain (mostly just uncomfortable the first day or so). The entire process was amazing. So amazing, I have my second procedure next week!
I just had my hair replaced two weeks ago. And now I cant wait for the results to come in.
Only those that knew you were balding would ever notice (due to the thickness of hair) as it is as natural of a procedure and look as you could ask for. The results were as great as I hoped they would be.
The results are permanent and I wouldn’t want it any other way! The team did an unbelievable job putting the new hair in and I’m thrilled to hear that it’ll be staying there forever.
Okay, so, my body typically has a difficult time recovering from even the most minor procedure. I slept sitting up on my couch for a few days because I was fearful I would roll over on my head in the night and damage the transplanted area. That was not easy to do, but I got through it. Also, I had some swelling after the procedure which was a bit unnerving, but PAI assured me that would go away, and it did. I was able to work the entire time, though. Other than some interrupted sleep, I was able to keep going a day or two after the procedure.
I had a large area done on the back of my head. Swelling was not a concern and I could have gone back to an office job in a few days. I planned my procedure around a long weekend. Talk to Darren at PAI, and he will tell you exactly what to expect and what to do about work , which will depend on what you do for a living, etc. Do just what PAI tells you and everything will go great for you and you will be very happy and amazed with the great results you will see in just a few months.
The multi unit hair grafting technique looks so natural that my hair stylist couldn’t tell that I had the procedure.
It has been 5 months since my surgery, and I look great. I am completely happy with the surgery and have had comments from others who are starting to go bald. I don’t get embarrassed when people notice and ask me. It just reminds me that it was a worth while investment.
I was back at work in a week. PAI team did a good job providing instructions and explaining on what to expect (day by day) after the procedure. The instructions came out very handy.
The results look absolutely natural, wet or dry! I went back to work the next week and NO ONE has ever noticed it. :)
I was 63 when I had my procedure done. I am happy with the results. I only wish I would have done it years ago.
There was no pain during or after the procedure. The suture line was a little sensitive but that goes away in a week or so. I did have some slight swelling which was not something I hadn’t prepared for. That went away within 2-3 days for me.
I am only a year post op and my hair looks great. According to Darren and PAI, I will have the transplanted hair for life. And if you think about it and the fact that they are transplanting hair from an area where most bald men can still grow hair they make perfect sense.
Again, I was amazed through the whole process. The pain and discomfort was minimal. I was back on my feet and doing my normal routine in no time at all. Hair transplants have come along way. The Doctor and his assistants were incredible. Before I knew it I was done. They explained to me what I needed to do after the procedure in detail. Darren and his staff provided phone numbers just in chase I needed to reach him personally.
The results are incredible. When I tell people I had the procedure done, they think I am kidding because the results are so natural looking and there is no way to tell I had anything done. It is very nice to look back at pictures of myself when I didn’t have hair and to see myself now with hair. I look exactly like I did before I started loosing my hair.
I did have some mild discomfort for 2 days after the procedure but all things considered, I would still do it again. The doctor personally called me and checked in with me every day to see how I was doing. Four months into it I can tell you honestly I would go back to PAI and do it all again; they have been fantastic and it has been worth every penny!
I’ve had two transplants and felt no pain during either of them. In the days that followed my first (more extensive) transplant, I had some discomfort from the swelling I had for a day or two after the procedure. Nights were fine, and I slept through them fine.
I’m a little over a year out and I couldn’t be happier with my results. I’ve gotten so many compliments about how great it looks!
I never told anyone but my wife that I was thinking about this procedure. So when I had it done I was sure people would ask about it – I wore a ball cap for about a week but once the post-surgery redness was gone I did not try to hide it and to my shock no one really asked me about it and over time the hair started to grow and it happened so gradual that by the time it all filled in no one ever asked. To date not one person has asked me if I had a hair procedure done but they sure comment on how great my hair looks these days.
I had a procedure 5 years ago through a competitor and there was pain during the procedure and after it, especially from the suture area. I was told by PAI that the technology has changed now and that pain is not an issue. They were right, I had very little pain post procedure. The suture line was slightly uncomfortable, however, I never needed to take any medication. The worst part of the whole thing was staying up all the first night (by choice) to make sure i didnt bump or damage anything!
I had the plug type of hair transplant surgery thirty years ago. I was lucky, I had a surgeon who did as good of a job as could be done with that type of procedure. The Multi Unit Grafts used at PAI is so far beyond the old procedures used , there is no comparison. Their doctor and his staff will do the transplant surgery in such an artistic manner that you or no one else will be able to tell the transplanted hair from your natural hair. I am four months post surgery, and I have hair all over my crown area which was totally without hair four months ago. It is growing in a completely natural swirl pattern and I can see the terrific skill it took to creat the beautiful natural look I am seeing. The procedure is painless and the result is fantastic.
As for the procedure, i felt nothing. I wake up about an hour before they were done and just kept talking with the Dr. and his team till they were finished. I had to wait a short while till I could leave. The first day I felt fine. The second day the area the hair was taken was a little tender but not bad. The first few days were time consuming because you have to be so careful with your head and how you wash it. Other then that, everything was great. Everything healed and I have a ton of hair now. Thanks so much PAI… Brian G.
I don’t remember much of the procedure as I “napped” through most of it. I don’t recall experiencing any pain during the procedure. I had the largest procedure done and the first 24 hours post-op were the most uncomfortable. I’d describe the feeling as mild discomfort in the donor area and an odd numb sensation in the transplant area. I was fully functional and went back to work on the 3rd day post-op but with some discomfort. After having this procedure done, the positive results of 6000+ new hairs far outweigh the minor discomfort I experienced. Darren, Dr. Waesche and his PAI staff are top notch! Darren has cheerfully endured countless questions by me and has an earnest concern for me as a patient. Would highly recommend PAI to anyone looking to restore their hair.
I know this is a good organization. I had an appointment to get an estimate and they said for 1000.00 mulit folicular grafts would be at least $ 6,000.00. I just cannot afford it. I wish I could.
The benefits of this procedure truly are priceless. To take hair out of a donor area that no one will notice and put it so naturally in a spot that will make you look and feel better is a win-win for anyone. Having no pain, a natural look and hair that will stay forever are things that have made this experience worth every penny.
Dr. Waesche and the P.A.I. team not only offered me hope–THEY DELIVERED! The procedure was truly effortless(on my behalf) as the P.A.I. team was there for me every step of the way. The procedure itself was painless and I enjoyed sharing a few laughs with the girls while the procedure was in progress. I can report to all that I have had far more discomfort from a heavy training session than any aspect of the procedure!
I love my new transplant! I had it done June 24 and started to notice new growth at the end of September. Almost daily I notice my hair getting thicker. Darren and the rest of the crew are great.
I am 4 months post op and the procedure was not painful at all. I had a some tightness and numbess in both the donnor area and the recipient site but after about a week or so the discomfort ceased. While I am only 4 months into this, I am completely satisfied. Any discomfort that I might have had is well worth the results thus far. If you are thinking about having this proecedure now stop thinking and start calling. You could not make a better choice than PAI Medical. From Darren to Melissa, to the many receptionists, to the nurses, to the Doctor, you are treated absolutely amazingly. They are always wearing a smile and do whatever they can to make your experience a great one. I am soooo thankful that I chose PAI. Without them I would still be searching for my next hat to wear.
I didn’t know what to expect honestly. I was pleased to find out how easy it was to have done. The multi unit grafting was a process I am overall, pleased with. After four months, there is obvious growth and it looks natural.
Best thing I’ve ever done for myself!
Having tried so many different methods to deal with my hair loss prior to PAI, I was initially skeptical at my first visit. In retrospect, the only regret I have is having waited as long as I did to take advantage of the resources they had to offer. The results have been amazing. After 4 months, I've already seen the most amazing results for which I could ask. Thank to PAI, I no longer have to constantly worry about losing my hair. Friends and family have commented on how good I look and I've gained an infinite amount of confidence back. I would highly recommend PAI's grafting procedures to deal with hair loss once and for all.
The technology for PAI’s grafting technique is amazing. The coverage is phenomenal!
I received numerous emails checking in and also to see if I was good on supplemental product (i.e. shampoo). Although, I know it's routine, it's nice to have the follow up! All in all, I'm thrilled with my results! It's truly night and day to where I was previously.
I met with Darren Andrews and explained my goal was to look like myself again for my wedding in May 2015 and this was at the end of November 2014. He said that I needed to schedule by December 10th and explained what I should expect about the procedure and about how much hair I would have by my wedding date. Needless to say my hair had thickened up by my wedding and I am so thrilled to look at my wedding photos and see hair and not my shiny head anymore because that is just not me. Thanks PAI staff and Darren for your service and helping me to look like me again, Kevin M. Brown
I'm happy with the procedure. Better than Tessler in Michigan. I'm happy! You guys did well and I see results!
I thought the advertising information was thorough. The consultation was pretty thorough in explaining the procedure. The doctor is an excellent surgeon along with the team. I was given excellent instructions on how to deal with the first 12 hours after the procedure. Overall, the procedure was a good experience and I'm glad I had it done. I'm very satisfied with my results!
PAI Medical has a great staff that is friendly, courteous, and professional. The procedures they offer are bright advancements in medical science that sincerely lead to profound results. Rest assure Darren Andrews and Dr. Waesche have the tenable background and experience that will help you overcome a once impossible thought that is now truly viable.
I had my 2nd procedure done in late August 2015. I’m retired, but like anybody, I wanted my recovery to move as quickly as possible. I decided to have Enhanced Plasma Therapy on the 2nd procedure. Best call ever! Knowing what I do now, if it had been available when I had the first procedure, I would have gladly paid for it then, too. For me, the difference was dramatic. If a faster recovery is important to you… you want this.
I was extremely skeptical when I went to my first consultation, but within 1 month I was seeing actual results. My thin spots have all filled in and my self esteem has risen through the roof. The maintenance products are great and affordable and the service from the staff is outstanding. I thank God for the PAI team here in Indianapolis. They truly gave me hope.
I was so nervous and skeptical about the process in the beginning. It certainly helped to have guys like Darren and Todd showing the results they achieved themselves several years ago. I am extremely pleased with the results and would recommend to anyone who desires thicker hair. Every person I encountered in the process were great!
Everyone involved was very kind and genuinely cared about my follow-up care. I'm very satisfied with the procedure... It's hard to believe I had so little hair. I feel like I look 10 years younger! It was a wonderful experience!
After my second procedure last week, I went in for a shampoo and check up on Monday. Dawn was very comforting, helpful, and sympathetic. Dealing with going through this by myself was a private thing and I was extra uncomfortable dealing with it in front of someone else. Dawn made me feel relaxed and made me as comfortable as I could possibly be.These comments, although this time are specific to my treatment with Dawn, they also reflect how I've felt dealing with everyone in the office. Melissa has also been a pleasure to deal with. Everyone at the front desk always welcomes me with a smile. This has made something, which is incredibly embarrassing for me, actually enjoyable.
It's been 14 months since my MUHG, and I'm very pleased with the results. It only took a short few months for me to start seeing the results I was hoping for come to fruition. I've easily reduced my appearance by a decade or more. With MUHG, you'll utilize your own hair for the procedure, and there is nothing more natural than that. My hair looks better now than it did in my mid-twenties!
I had a large area to cover on the crown and after only four months, the multi-unit hair grafting procedure has provided tremendous results - it is a night and day difference! It's so natural and the reason is simple: It's your hair! Most people do not know I had a procedure and prior to that, I had worn my hair really short. I can't tell you how many people have come up to me and say how much better it looks! The results are so impressive and the feedback has been amazing, I am encouraged by the early results and excited for the future!
I was nervous, but am so glad that I had it done! I have a lot of hair now!
I had a lot of open area, and with 1 procedure and 12 months later, I have a nice head of hair. The timing PAI gives you is a great guideline. I have quite a few people look at my hair and don't believe the results.
The results are extremely natural. The hairline does not look like old plugs or a straight line. It ebbs and flows a bit like a normal hairline, and some of the transplants are placed into the existing hair to make for a seamless transition. Very well done, and I am very pleased.
I received outstanding attention and consideration from all members of your staff.
I'm 1 year post surgery, my hair is long, natural looking, and growing better than ever! The MUHG technology does not give the plugged look, like some of the other forms of transplanting do. The DRs do an amazing job of transplanting the hair to make it just like it was before the hair loss!
When first seeking PAI’s help, all I wanted was to have my hair back. It had fallen out starting in the front and things seemed hopeless prior to my first visit. They walked me through the multi-unit hair grafting procedure and showed me the success countless other clients had achieved prior. The PAI team were very informative and comprehensive; I never doubted I was in good hands. One year has passed since undergoing the procedure, and I am infinitely happy to count myself among them! My hair looks amazing and it is most certainly here to stay. The days of looking in the mirror with despair as my hairline recedes more and more each day are nothing more than a bad memory.
A "10" is a perfect score, so I would be hard pressed to give a 10. However, I was very happy with the staff and their professional manner of business.
The follow-up care was great. Totally professional, great staff!
It was a good experience for me for the most part.
The procedure went very smoothly, and there was very little pain, which was unexpected - I assumed there would be much more. After care was easy due to explanations and hand-outs telling what to do. We received numerous phone calls to check to see if any questions, and our questions were answered immediately. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
I don't regret doing the procedure one bit. I am happy with the results.
I had a great experience with this life changing procedure. I spent a very long time each day covering up the thinning areas of my hairline. Now after my surgery I feel free to do what I need without worrying that people are looking up at my hair and not at me. Darren explained the whole process to me and was very patient with me the whole way through. Thank you PAI!
My overall experience and surgery was absolutely fantastic. Matt did a tremendous job explaining the procedure and the different options available to me. He made me feel very comfortable and excited about my decision to do the procedure. The follow-up care was very attentive to my needs and made me feel at home, and calmed any concerns that I may have had. The front office was very professional and always made me feel welcome, and the medical team was friendly and respectful. The level of care all around couldn't have been better. I am very happy with the results at this 4 month stage!
Darren was very knowledgeable, welcoming, and professional. He explained everything thoroughly and answered any questions that I had. The front office was courteous and friendly both on the phone and in person. My surgical experience was professional, quick, and easy!
I heard that PAI was the best in town, and I wasn't disappointed! Matt did a great job explaining what to expect (before procedure). Compared to my last procedure (1978-1979), there was less pain, faster healing, and much more hair in one procedure... Hair tranplanting has come a long way! The front desk personnel are great! They are helpful, cheerful, and they answer questions completely - they don't cut you short! PAI is very good at what they do!
I am 8-months out and so-far-so-good! I had been losing my hair slowly throughout my early 20’s and was in denial that it was thinning. After a couple of years, it was very noticeable and I decided to have something done about it. When meeting with PAI, they gave me several different options and after analyzing my hair and the follicles, it was clear that the best option was a hair transplant. Aside from a little discomfort three to four days after my procedure, there was zero pain at all! The procedure is not very invasive. This was one of the best choices I have made for myself!
It has been just over a year after my procedure and I can say that it was very successful for me. There was no pain during the procedure and only mild discomfort for a couple days after. I now have hair like I did approximately 15 years ago! I would definitely recommend doing this to anyone that is having thoughts about their hair loss like I was.
I am very impressed. You have a great staff. The quality of the written materials I have received is quite good. As I write this, it's about 7 months and one week after my procedure, and the amount of new growth is substantial! You have easily exceeded my expectations. Thanks!!
This is procedure #5 - without a doubt the best in every way from consult to end result! I really appreciated the 2 month letter, about the time I was wondering if it would ever grow. I enjoyed meeting the Doc - he listened to my desires and really tried to deliver. It worked!
A few years ago I decided to get a hair transplant. I ended up going to one of the supposedly top places in the nation. Everyone was real nice but I didn't get results I wanted, so I actually went again to the same place 10 months later. Of course it looked tons better but my son still made fun of me saying I was bald after two surgeries!! A friend of mine recommended PAI and the price was right so I decided to give it one more shot!! It ended up amazing, the grafts were so much closer together to give it that thicker fuller look!! My friends asked if I lost weight and said that I hadn't looked that good since college, which was 30 years ago, calling me Elvis!! Then more and more people called me Elvis, even people I didn't know!! Now we all know Elvis had a thick head of hair so I knew I had finally hit my goal with PAI . Oh yeah, and my boy doesn't make fun of me anymore !! Thanks PAI, sincerely Elvis formally William!!
I wish hair loss could be completely fixed, but I'm very satisfied after my second procedure (which I knew was necessary after my first one). Everyone from Todd to Darren has been very caring and professional. Melissa is wonderful and really cares about her patients... she never stops smiling! I would recommend PAI Medical Group to anyone!
I had done a lot of research and felt PAI was the place to schedule a consultation with above any other place, and I was surprised that I actually had my meeting with Darren. It was nice to speak with the guy you see on TV! He took time to thoroughly answer all questions and concerns. After the procedure, Dawn was very helpful, knowledgeable, and took her time with my aftercare and genuinely cared. Everyone is a class act at PAI. Dr. Waesche did an amazing job, and at 4 months, I couldn't be happier! I recommend PAI to anyone considering hair restoration! Thanks to all!
I'm happy with the care and friendliness of all persons I have come in contact with, and Dr. Waesche impressed me with his care and knowledge.
The results have exceeded my initial expectations and I am very satisfied!
The follow-up care was extremely attentive, courteous, and professional! Hair growth is very good and it looks excellent!
My experience from the first appointment to now has been very professional. All staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and neat in appearance and the facility is clean, calming, and aesthetically pleasing. Darren was friendly, funny, and handled a very personal decision in a non-pressure way. I loved the follow-up care! I am a firm believer that the experience doesn't end when you leave the office. Dr. Waesche was very informative, reassuring, and the medical team acted like they knew me when I was in the surgical room... very friendly, yet professional. Medicine is about results that are carried out in a relationship with the patient. This was the best transplant surgical experience in the 4 surgeries that I have had! Kudos to the entire team... Thank you!
I liked the personalized letters post-procedure. I liked the caring and concern Dawn Fox gave to me pre-procedure and at follow-up... much appreciated!
The results have exceeded my initial expectations. I am very satisfied!
After 4 months, I've had an excellent experience so far and I am beginning to see the results. The consultation was direct, but complete and very informative. From a patient's point of view, the surgical experience was easy. Everyone from the front desk to the medical team were professional, helpful, and made me feel at ease!
As a medical professional I am so very impressed by the level of care and compassion by this organization. I would recommend them wholeheartedly.
To sum up the whole experience - from the front desk staff, surgical staff, Darren and everyone involved - First Class!!
It has been one year since I had hair transplants by the Artas FUE robot. It looks completely natural and no one can tell that I had hair transplants. The folks at PAI made it a very easy process. I could not be happier with the results.Thank you.
Super clean, everyone is good to work with. Darren is the man.Every option available for hair loss down you could ever think of. Up to date on every procedure. If you are thinking about pursuing hair recovery in anyway and live in Indy, dont go anywhere else. You will not regret making the first phone call to get started.
The whole experience was absolutely fantastic! So glad I had this done!
The experience start to finish was actually amazing. Great staff and support. They answered all my questions. One year later I have a full head of hair for life. I looked back at how I started and am amazed. I feel confident again. I feel young again. I love having my own hair back!
Everything about my surgical experience was great! Darren was great... no pressure and no hassle. The doctor was professional - a true artist, and I loved the medical team. We sang, told jokes, and watched Netflix! 4 months post-procedure and I'm very happy with results so far!
As a dental professional, I would strongly recommend PAI to my colleagues. I got a fantastic result!!!
I am extremely satisfied! You all were amazing before, during, and after the surgery. Every time I've had a questions or concern, someone at your office has answered my questions or alleviated any concerns. I went from next to no hair up top to a new framed face and hair on top again. The procedure was a great success and people have noticed! You guys did a great job and I'm very happy! Thanks again! :)
Continue what you are doing... Thank you for your kind, sincere, and caring staff. I can't say enough about how the staff handled every part of this procedure. I'm so glad I did this!
PAI is the place to go for hair restoration! From the moment you walk in you are welcomed into a comfortable atmosphere with the best staff. Darren addressed all my concerns and reservations about having this procedure done within an hour. I couldn't have felt more at ease with the decision to restore my hair. I am ecstatic with the results! I would highly recommend anyone considering this procedure to visit PAI.
Whole experience was great! Was a little nervous at first but Darren and his staff were great. The results are unbelievable. Very happy I did it!
Very pleased with the results after 7 months! Many people have noticed a change in my appearance. PAI has met my expectations!
Matt went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable in deciding for surgery. The doctor was incredibly thorough in explaining my procedure. This was an excellent experience!
Fantastic, from the moment I walked in the door I felt so comfortable. I researched multiple places for my transplant and this was by far the best place in the world. With their multi unit grafting they did my whole transplant in one procedure. No one else offers this. I would definitely do it again and recommend PAI to everyone.
The overall experience was very professional, and everything went as planned and as Darren advised. My 12-month results look great compared to pre-procedure.
The follow-up care right after the procedure was very helpful. They answered all my questions and the instructions were great. I'm very satisfied - good people, great results!
I was very satisfied with my initial consultation, my pre-op meeting, the procedure, and follow-up - also happy with the results, as they exceeded my expectations! The follow-up was extraordinary, and I appreciated the calls, meetings, and letters of information regarding the process and procedure. I felt well cared for throughout! I seldom wear hats anymore to hide my hair loss... I am just thrilled with what has been achieved. Thanks!
Everything from the consultation, surgical experience, follow-up care, and the medical team were excellent. A quality product and service well delivered.
I'm very happy with the entire process. You guys do a great job in all departments! The follow-up care was excellent, and I'm very happy with my results from the procedure!
They've kept me updated on my progress, and everything is good. Front office is excellent, and Melissa was very good post-procedure. Everybody was fantastic!
My overall experience was excellent! I know you have heard this a million times but I wish would have done it sooner!
Darren did well getting to know me and making me feel welcomed. Front desk staff was great and I appreciated the quick answers to any questions I’ve had. The surgical experience was a piece of cake!
Follow-up care was excellent, very attentive to any questions I had. My results turned out good.
My consultant knew what he was talking about since he had the procedure done himself, and didn’t pressure me in to getting the procedure. Front office was good and professional. Day of the surgery went great, and everything went as planned!
Everyone at PAI is awesome, extremely professional and caring, and Darren is your shining star! At 4 months, I look forward to seeing the progression for hair restoration and it wouldn't have been as easy without your team!
PAI exceeded my highest expectations. Everyone, especially Melissa G., made me feel as if I was their only client. PAI is truly a class act and everyone went above and beyond! Remarkable...and absolutely a pleasure to be their patient. My results are absolutely far above my expectations!
I can't express enough in words what Darren means to your company - he is amazing!! Having hair and confidence again changes your life in multiple good ways!
I could not be more pleased with my results. The staff has been incredible from the beginning and have been so pleasant to work it. Darren had me in the first 5 minutes of being there on having a transplant. I am 11 months post op and have been so impressed with the process they have initiated to insure my complete satisfaction. Wonderful company to do business with! Definitely recommend to anyone who asks why my hair looks so great! It has cut at least 10 years off my life in appearance. WOW!!
Darren is an awesome asset to the PAI group. Everyone was kind, considerate, and professional. It's only been 4 months and I am very happy with the decision to have the procedure.
Todd was very patient with me, as it took me over 2 years to finally make my decision. The staff is very friendly and knows me by name. The doctor had excellent bed side manners - made me feel very confident in what I was doing. Overall, it's been a great experience.
My current results are on pace with how it is shown to look at 4 months. The staff is friendly and easy to communicate with, being very knowledgeable and giving honest opinions on the best options to choose from.
Thus far, this has been a wonderful adventure! I only wish that I had not waited so long to investigate PAI. All of my questions were answered for which I am very grateful. The follow-up care is great and I almost feel like a PAI family member!
I had been to Bosley 10 years before and the results were good. Out of 1-10, a 10. Results from your company were more than a 10, maybe a 12!
So happy I decided to do this. I’m a year post-op and I could not be happier with my results. The staff at PAI are exceptional and made everything easier for me throughout the process.
12 months later, I'm highly satisfied with my procedure! They offered excellent care and follow-up with me was very good. No one can tell I have had a procedure. They just think I have great hair!
