“I had a very positive experience with Dr. Dauer. He underpromises and overdelivers, and always does what is in the best interest of the patient versus some other doctors who play games to increase their profit. When you meet him, you can tell he is passionate about what he does; a way for him to balance his artistic side with medicine. He also takes the time to answer questions and explain why he does things a certain way. I was someone who was not happy about my hair loss but did not think I would get a hair transplant, which led me to put it off for a long time. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Dauer. The results turned out great and I would highly recommend him to others.”
“My eyebrow hair transplant surgery consisted of one positive experience after another. In many ways, I was treated like a valuable client and not a patient. When I initially contacted Dr. Dauer’s office I was surprised to find that Dr. Dauer himself was willing to talk to me about the procedure. During my consultation, I realized immediately that I had found the right man for the job. Dr. Dauer showed a genuine interest in my concerns and gave me his personal e-mail address so that I could contact him directly if I had any questions – find me another doctor who does that! I was also surprised by the hospitable nature of Dr. Dauer and his staff. During my procedure, I was given access to Netflix and hundreds of T.V. channels while I was served lunch at Dr. Dauer’s expense. For the first in my life, a doctor made me feel appreciated and respected; I wasn’t just a number or a routine.
It has been 8 months since my procedure and I couldn’t be happier with the results. My eyebrows now have a natural, full shape and have drastically changed my appearance, giving me a boost in confidence. In fact, I am so pleased with the results that I scheduled a second procedure, which I have absolutely zero anxiety about because my first experience was so positive and because I now know that the surgery is virtually pain free.
Surgery can be scary, especially a cosmetic one, but getting my hair transplant with Dr. Dauer is one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thank you Dr. Dauer!”

“I would describe my week of training with Dr. Dauer as full immersion. You taught the finest details regarding FUE and Strip Harvesting,and the transplanting itself is art! But there was so much more involved. Seeing you educate the patient and me with respect to the advantagesand disadvantages of all options was invaluable. You are confident, kind, empathetic,and engaging. You do not over promise. During the days there, previous patients consistentlyreturned-thrilled with their results. Your entire staff was outstanding, and patiently demonstrated and explained to me every step and question I had. What I especially appreciated was the fact that each treatment was tailored to the patient’s specific needs, and not to the surgeon who might have only one single device or technique available. Thank you for your comprehensive training, for your friendship, and for your willingness to stay in touch. I would strongly recommend your training to any highly motivated individual.”

“I want to thank Dr. Dauer and his staff for their professionalism and making me feel so comfortable. I was so surprised to find how easy the procedure was. First the deadening — pretty easy I’m scared of needles, then the procedure — took all day watched TV and talked to the nurses and when the Novocain wore off the area was sore but no real pain. On my drive home — 250 miles — I took two Advil. That was the only pain medicine I took. The two week care for the incision and the transplant area is easy. I was out and about the first week. Again, thank you and I am looking forward to my new hair. I stopped procrastinating and DID IT. I’m very proud of myself.”

“My intital consultation with Dr. Dauer was very comprehensive, and relieved any reservations I had about undergoing the procedure. No more than a week after the consult I was in Dr. Dauer’s office ready to begin a new life with hair.
During the procedure I was very comfortable and felt nothing but minor pressure. Dr. Dauer and his wonderful staff made sure I was completely aware of every step during the procedure. The time passed quickly with the beautiful view of the Los Angeles skyline out of the office window, and the entertaining conversation with Dr. Dauer and his friendly staff.”
After the procedure was completed, and it seemed like no time at all, I drove myself home.The first night I only had to take Tylenol, because there was virtually no pain. Two months later, I was already getting compliments on my new look. Coworkers are telling me my hair looks thicker and fuller.
Once again I want to thank Dr. Dauer and his staff for their fine care, and giving me back my confidence.”

I am writing this letter to tell you how much I appreciate the job you did on my hair transplant procedure. This was my third transplant, one in Washington, D.C., and another here in Los Angeles. On a scale of one to ten I would give both of those procedures a 3 and you a perfect ten. I can not express to you my gratitude. You are a excellent Doctor Sir and your staff is outstanding. I would like everyone to know that I felt like the most important patient in the world while in your care. I was so impressed with the attention you personally gave to me. My recovery was nearly pain free and the procedure itself was as simple as I could have ever imagined.
I will recommend you to all of my friends, family, and co-workers. Please let me know if there is anything more than this letter I can do to show my appreciation and gratitude. Thank you and God Bless.”

“I am so glad I was referred to Dr. Dauer! He did a terrific job in transplanting hair into old surgical scars on the head which had been bothering me for years. The scars are no longer visible. In addition to his expertise in hair transplantation, Dr. Dauer is also a caring and attentive physician. I immediately felt comfortable with him when we met for my consultation. He thoroughly addressed all of my questions and concerns. I left his office with the confidence that Dr. Dauer was the right doctor for me. It has been almost two years since my procedure and I have been thrilled with the result. I feel tremendous gratitude to Dauer. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Dauer to anyone who is considering hair transplantation- he is at the top of his field.”
“I’m doing very well, thank you. Dr Dauer was fantastic, and took such good care of me. It’s so nice to have eyebrows, wow! I would have done it years ago if I had known about the procedure. Everything is healing nicely, no infection or problems.”
Thank you again! S.D.
“Everything went great! Dr. Dauer and his staff are amazing. Thank you so much. ”
“Dear Dr. Dauer,
I would like to express my gratitude to you for your amazing work in restoring my hair. I was very apprehensive prior to having my Hair Transplant, but you and your staff made me feel so comfortable it took away all my fears related to the procedure. The procedure itself was minimally uncomfortable and the conversation with you and your staff was very entertaining. Not to mention, it was good to catch up on some movies that I hadn’t yet gotten a chance to see. Now that my new hair has grown in I can’t believe I waited as long as I did to have this done. This was one of the best decisions I ever made. Thank you again for all!”
“After visiting several doctors, I chose Dr. Sword as my hair transplant physician because he has personally transplanted millions of hairs for thousands of patients and he treated me like a person not just another patient.
First, the method of delivering local anesthetic is nearly painless, thanks to the up-to-date technology there. Second, you will not find a more courteous, customer-service oriented staff anywhere; I know as I have been to two other places for transplants. But even in terms of medical offices, I have never had a more pleasant experience with Dr. and staff. Lastly, the expertise of Dr. Sword and his staff is first rate. In terms of cost, service, expertise and a genuine caring about the patient, my opinion is that you will not find any better than Dr. Sword’s practice. Dr. Sword and his staff are the absolute best! I wouldn’t go anywhere else even if it were free! And a special thank you to Irma, she is truly an asset to the Torrance office.”
“I would highly recommend Dr. Sword to anyone who is considering hair transplantation and improving their appearance.
Everyone at Sword Medical is wonderful, supportive and very interested in your comfort and experience. The assistants constantly checked with me to see how I was doing and if I felt anything and were on top of keeping me comfortable. Dr. Sword was very informative and knowledgeable and enjoyable to meet. He really is an artist at placing the hair. I am only 2 week into the program but I can see the hair and where it is placed and I can see how the hair line will look. You would never know that the hair is transplanted. It really is amazing and I am looking forward to seeing it come in over the months to come. I know that I will continue to be amazed as it grows in.
My wife and son were with me and the people in Dr. Sword’s clinic were even making them comfortable. Everyone is both very professional and like a family. Everyone is so nice and at the same time so knowledgeable.
I absolutely cannot say enough about what a great experience it has been. I know that I had tons of questions and they were always there to answer and help.
Thank you Dr. Sword, all the technicians and Roy, you guys are great!”
“Dr. Sword changed my life. I’m more confident than ever before.”

“I just want to encourage anyone that is thinking about doing hair restoration to, GO FOR IT! Especially with Dr. Sword. He isn’t just a physician, he’s an artist. He literally recreated my hairline as it was 15 years ago. It’s not like I was bald, I was just getting OLD! Dr. Sword turned back the clock. His staff is fantastic. They are caring, gentle and on the day of the surgery, I felt like I was with family and friends rather than at a medical facility.”
~ Patient A.R.
“Creating a natural hairline on a woman is significantly different than on a man. I cannot believe how well Dr. Sword covered the areas of thinning which I was experiencing. He literally rebuilt a natural hairline in just one session.”
~ Patient C.J.
“I had done a lot of research and had met with quite a few other doctors before I ended up in Dr. Dauer’s. To be quite frank, Dr. Dauer was by far my most pleasant experience. He personally called me, answered all of my questions thoroughly, and worked around my schedule for the consultation. I’d immediately made my decision the moment I stepped out of his office and scheduled the next step. A few months later I was back in for the procedure. This was something I’d waited a few years to finally do so I was both nervous and excited.
The experience was extremely pleasant (give the circumstances) and virtually pain free (ish). They went out of their way to make me feel as comfortable as possible. It’s the best thing I ever did and I am extremely happy with the results. Not only would I recommend Dr Dauer and his office but I would also go the extra mile to say that I would only trust him when it comes to this procedure. Trust me, I’ve done all the research and have met with most everyone in the LA area who specializes in this and speak candidly when I say that I am absolutely positive that I made the right choice.”
“Dr. Dauer is fantastic. He performed my third procedure and I’m six months into the recovery process and very pleased with the results. I can’t wait to see how it looks like at the end of this year. My hair loss isn’t terrible, but I’ve been doing procedures as a preventive measure. If anyone is starting to lose their hair, I’d highly recommend gradually doing improvements, rather than waiting for things to get really bad. By doing them gradually, no one will know you even had a transplant.
I previously went to Dr. Sword, who was also great, but I feel Dr. Dauer is at the forefront of his field with the latest technology. He was able to get greater density than I got before. Density is important because no one wants a thinning look. The whole point of this process is to make it look like you have no problems with hairloss! He removed my previous donor scar with the transplant area so that I would continue to only have one scar on the back of my head. My hair naturally grows over it and nothing is noticeable.
The entire procedure was smooth. Besides a few pricks for the Novocaine, I didn’t feel that much discomfort. Removing the donor area made me a little squeamish, but it was just my imagination getting the best of me… I experienced no pain. Towards the end of the surgery, I started to get a dull headache (understandably), but that went away with some pain killers. I don’t think anyone enjoys surgery, but this was definitely tolerable.
If I could wave a magic wand and change one thing about this operation, it would be for the results to appear quicker. The transplanted hair doesn’t really start to be noticeable until 5-6 months after the procedure (at least with me). Dr. Dauer was very upfront with this, but your mind gets the best of you in the 3-4 month stage where you are just tired of waiting. Even though this was my third procedure and I knew the drill, the waiting game can be annoying. Realizing that I was losing my hair was one of the most depressing things I have ever experienced. I couldn’t believe it. It is just something you take for granted and then all of a sudden its going away and you feel like the world is going to end. The good news is that there is a solution. It takes a while and might even require a few procedures for the perfect result, but this stuff does work. Picking Dr. Dauer is a safe and reliable bet. He will do a great job!”
