Dr. Beckenstein offers in-office consultations as well as video conferencing if your location or schedule makes it difficult to come to our Birmingham Alabama clinic. He conducts these sessions himself because he wants to ensure that you make an informed decision about the hair restoration procedure that is right for you. Part of the education process is having you view a multi-media presentation about the surgical or non-surgical option that you are considering having him complete.
