Testimonials / Reviews – Dr Andre Nel


The most pleasant experience I could have imagined

"I have to say the whole experience of looking into trichology from beginning to end was the most pleasant experience I could have imagined mainly due to your continued communication and understanding. I would recommend this procedure to anyone I meet who needs your help. I have already passed your details on to 3 people and when I say passed on they insisted I wrote it down for them. I want to thank all involved - Maria, her sister and of course Dr Andre Nel."

I would highly recommend Dr Nel

"I had the treatment done last year because I was unhappy with my appearance and when I met with Dr Nel I was impressed with his honesty and the fact I felt cost was reasonable by comparison with quote received from another clinic in Blackrock. The best part of the experience was the treatment I received during the procedure over 2.5 days, it could not have been better in any way. I was made to feel at ease and consulted with at all times. Dr Nel and his team were extremely friendly. If you are thinking about a transplant go and have a consultation with a doctor who specialises in this area and not a sales person and also try to speak with some people who have actually had a procedure. I would highly recommend Dr Nel for this procedure to anyone."

Everything was treated with precision in the safe hands of Dr. Andre

"Just a quick note to say thank you for the great service I received recently during my Hair  Restoration treatment. Dr. Andre listened to my needs and developed a simple plan that we could work together on. When the treatment was completed the recovery period went smoothly. It was as if I had just got a number 1 hair cut. All through the operation I felt no pain and everything was treated with precision in the safe hands of Dr. Andre. As an added bonus I even got drove home after the procedure."

Changed my life

Very impressed with the service I received

"I originally went to Dr Nel intending to have derma fillers but after a thorough explanation of how the skin is constructed and how the ageing process takes place he helped me find the right treatment for my skin and my specific problems. He explained everything very clearly and was most helpful. He never tried to force me into anything or pressed me into any treatment. He gave his expert knowledge and advice freely and I'm most grateful and very impressed with the service I received. I would highly recommend Dr Nel to anyone wanting facial rejuvenation."

I am thoroughly satisfied with the results

"I received a FUE hair restoration treatment from Dr. Andre Nel in May of 2011 followed by a second treatment in February 2012. I had wanted to have the treatments done in smaller amounts so as to make the re-emergence of my hair appear more gradual, thereby causing less comment.

Both sessions were 100% effective and I am thoroughly satisfied with the results, which have been to thicken my hair and restore my long lost hairline. I will be having a third session in early 2013 to complete the process. I’ve also had a number of carboxy therapy treatments which I found to be notably effective in thickening my newly restored hair and restoring it’s colour."

The first truly effective treatment program

"I want to take a moment to thank you for the great service I received. What I really appreciate is that you took my concerns onboard and gave me the first truly effective treatment program for my problem skin. The change so far has been nothing short of a miracle and the effect on my self-esteem and confidence immense. Thank you so much for helping me."

One of the best decisions of my life

"Dear Dr Nel, I am so glad I came to you for my male pattern baldness problem. To be honest, this bothered me for many years, ever since I first noticed my hair falling out. At one stage I almost resigned myself to accept my fate, but then I became aware of hair restoration as an option via the internet. Somehow I never really thought of it as a viable option until I met you.

The penny dropped during my first consultation with you when I realized hair restoration was for real. Your systematic and pragmatic approach in addressing my hair loss problem instilled confidence and belief in the process. Restoring my hair has given me a quiet sense of confidence and great satisfaction. It has been one of the best decisions of my life. Thanks for doing such a fine job and for your professionalism."

A renewed confidence in my appearance

"I suffered with bad acne for many years and had regular break outs of large, boil-like eruptions which knocked my confidence and I was afraid to leave the house without the careful application of lots of make-up.

From the very first treatment with Doctor Nel I noticed a difference in my skin and having completed the course of treatments the eruptions have stopped. I have the occasional break out of a few small pimples but this is nothing compared to how bad it used to be when the spots were so big they used to distort the shape of my face at times.

The best part about this treatment is my renewed confidence in my appearance and the regular compliments I get about how much better my skin looks – I only wish I could have had this treatment years ago. I owe a big thank you to Dr. Nel for introducing me to this therapy which has changed my life for the better."

I can highly recommend

Following the referral from Niall Friel (Hair Loss Control Clinic in Belfast), "I can highly recommend Dr Andre and his amazing team for hair restoration."

"With Dr Andre you will receive a straight talking, no nonsense and clear explanation of the process and the science behind it, the knowledge of essential minimal cost supplements to be taken, vital to long term results. (Other clinics don't tell you this)  It's a no pressure sales approach and you will see lots of relative photo and synopsis examples showing before and after results.

The hospitality and constant care during and after the procedure was simply 5 star treatment, you will be in safe hands. The after op care was also fantastic, Dr Andre commits to you as a life-long client and equally wants the results you desire. I'm proud to say that my results have been life transforming in terms of my look and surprisingly my confidence has been boosted too, this is the best investment I've ever made."

Restored my hairline and my confidence

"Dr André not only restored my hairline and my confidence, he reversed and repaired my previous surgery that was botched by another surgeon.

Dr André is honest and very professional. He answered every question I had before the surgery, went through various option with me, established a plan and over delivered on the day. In a world where so many are in it for the money, I was lucky to find Dr André. A surgeon with true skill and a man who keeps his promises. I can't thank him enough!"

Hi Dr Andre,

Thanks for seeing me this week for my annual review. It was eye opening to compare the photos from the outset to the present.

There is no doubt the medication is having a very positive effect and combined with the SMP treatment is proving very satisfactory for me.

Kind regards

Joseph Tasker


Hi Dr Andre

I had a hair transplant approximately 1 year ago with yourself. I am extremely happy with the results to date. I would like to arrange a review and discuss the possibility of additional work to further thicken up the area.

Dear Dr Nel

Many Thanks for yesterday, it was both a huge relief and great satisfaction to see the progress William has made over the last 10 months. It was great to see that it seems to have stopped the hair loss and as you stated, has given him a good amount of hair volume. From William’s perspective he was delighted after the meeting, it has given him his confidence back and the meeting with yourself was exactly what he wanted to hear. I would like to thank you on behalf of myself, my wife and especially William for your time and effort spent with him.

We will be back in touch next year for another follow up meeting.

Thanks again

Bill Taylor


Hi Dr Andre,

I hope you are keeping well.

I am extremely happy with the outcome of my hair transplant that I got last year.

I'm just wondering, would it be possible to get another prescription of finasteride for the year?
