At PAI Medical Indiana, many of our staff members have experienced hair loss or thinning to some degree, which allows us to be more understanding and attentive to your needs. Our goal is to help you find the best solution for the concerns you have with your hair by showing you the possibilities that exist.

"Losing my hair had a dramatic impact on my life. My hair loss bothered and affected me more than I was willing to admit. After having my hair restored, my self-confidence and self-esteem are at a much higher level. “Having the opportunity to help other people experience the same results has been very rewarding to me."
