I've had two procedures with Dr. Raymond J. Konior. The first time was 5 years ago and the wait was two months. The second time? The wait was a little over a year. There's good reason for that because Dr. Konior is simply one of the best hair restoration surgeons in the world. Yes, world. Patients come from all over the globe for his services. Always do your research, but I would strongly recommend you include Dr. Konior in your list of surgeons to speak with.
