Traveling From Syracuse

At the Quatela Center for Hair Restoration, we frequently treat men and women traveling from Syracuse to our Rochester, NY, practice. Dr. Vito C. Quatela, Dr. Heather Lee, and Dr. Alex Montague provide a level of care our patients know is worth the trip. Their specialized expertise and personal investment in each person’s satisfaction with their results have earned the center a reputation as a leading name in hair restoration in upstate New York.

The Consultation Process

When you first contact the Quatela Center for Hair Restoration, you’ll be assigned a personal Patient Consultant. Your helpful Patient Consultant will serve as your guide through each step of your experience. During an initial phone call, your consultant will conduct a pre-consultation by asking you questions about your goals, answering questions you may have, and determining whether you would benefit from moving forward with an in-person consultation.

After scheduling an appointment with the help of your Patient Consultant, you will drive from Syracuse into Rochester to meet personally with either Dr. Quatela, Dr. Lee, or Dr. Montague. Prior to meeting with Dr. Quatela, an Image Enhancement Session is available with his Patient Consultant, Brooke, who has more than 19 years of experience working in cosmetic surgery. At this consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, explain your goals, and look through before-and-after photos of previous patients. Your doctor will help you decide which approach to treatment would be most helpful to you.

You will then schedule your procedure. Depending on availability, your scheduled date may be a month or 2 after your consultation.

Your Procedure

To eliminate an extra drive in from Syracuse, we typically conduct preoperative appointments over the phone. Depending on your current health condition, we may prefer to see you in person for this appointment.

You will need to travel in for your procedure with a friend or family member. This person will drive you home or to your hotel when your treatment is complete. For your safety, Uber, Lyft, MediCab, or other ride services are not recommended.

If you have any questions before or after your procedure, please call our nursing staff or physician on-call, who are available 24 hours a day to assist you.

After Your Procedure

We recommend staying in the area that evening as we will need to see you back the next day for a day 1 postoperative follow-up. We offer special rates at local hotels to accommodate this stay. For more information, please contact a Patient Consultant.

You will then be free to travel home to Syracuse. We will see you back for post-op appointments at 3 weeks, 5 months, and a year, with additional appointments available as needed.

Testimonials From Traveling Patients

“Excellent….from the moment you schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Quatela through the process of booking and coordinating your surgery with his experienced staff. Hair transplant surgery went smoothly with little discomfort, and the level of skill was evident throughout entire procedure. I’m glad I found the Quatela Center for Hair Restoration and wish I would have seen him sooner. I wouldn’t go elsewhere, and am looking forward to winning this battle with my hair loss! Grazie Tante!!!!”
