I stumbled upon him as a possible doctor for my procedure and have scoured and read every word on his website. I have also had a phone consultation with him. He told me to give coverage for a FUE that could be buzzed down, but still look somewhat "full" , or frame my face well, would be about 3000. That was for crown, also. I feel like my hair has worsened since then so that I may need about 1000 more, but I'll talk to him and see.
