I would like to thank Dr Shahmalak and his team for such a great experience at his clinic in Manchester.

The entire team were pleasant, helpful and professional throughout.

At every stage I was made to feel relaxed and the centre of everyone’s consideration.

Dr Shahmalak provided full pre and post-operative advice regarding my procedure; as well as keeping me fully appraised of each element during it. His technique was first rate and he ensured that I was pain free throughout. He was extremely considerate and repeatedly ensured that I was comfortable throughout and happy with how things were progressing. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone considering hair replacement therapy. Thank you.

From the time of arrival at the clinic the whole experience was professional, friendly and caring. Dr Shahmalak and his whole team treated me with respect and kindness making me feel totally at ease. It’s still early days but I’m sure to find the results will make me more comfortable about myself in the future. Thanks for a day that will stay with me forever and everyone who helped with the procedure, all very nice people and good fun.

Best wishes to all of you.

Dr Shahmalak and the team at Crown Clinic were excellent throughout my procedure. Everything was thoroughly explained and I was very well looked after by the team. Looking forward to seeing the results in the coming months!

Hi there,

I considered several clinics for my hair transplant, but I got a very good feeling about Crown Clinic from the very first phone call, which was prompt, friendly and professional, which is a theme that has continued throughout the entire experience

My initial consultation with Mr Shahmalak really put me at ease, as he examined my hair, made a recommendation and explained the procedure. He’s clearly very experienced and has a very friendly, calming manner.

Leading up to the procedure, I was provided with a packet of information that explained everything that I needed to do both before and after the procedure and I also received a couple of phone calls to ensure I understood everything and was happy.

On the procedure day itself, the team were incredibly welcoming and the facilities they provided for my comfort were excellent. I was pretty nervous beforehand, but the team really put me at ease and looked after me throughout the day.

In the 2 weeks after the procedure, the clinic has followed up with me and invited me in on two occasions to wash my hair for me and check everything is OK.

I’m really glad that I chose Crown Clinic for my FUE hair transplant. Everyone on the team has been incredibly helpful, friendly and professional and the entire experience has been first class.

Kind regards,

An altogether professional and enjoyable experience. From the moment I met Mr Shahmalak he made me feel at ease about the whole procedure moving forward. The steps pre & post op were discussed thoroughly. There was pain with the op, slightly discomfort with the anaesthetic injection but only lasted a few seconds in each area. The rest of the team were great, making me laugh, down to earth and keeping me relaxed at all times. “Rocky on DVD was a bonus”. The food and drink put on was exceptional, bottles of water, Kit Kats, fancy biscuits, the soup at lunch was lovely as was the cheese salad sandwiches. Would highly recommend Dr Shahmalak and the team to carry out this procedure. Excellent from start to finish.

Thank you to Dr Shahmalak and his team. I received an excellent service from start to finish. Initial appointment was easy to arrange and Dr Shahmalak talked through everything with me, options, what he would recommend and plenty opportunity for me to ask any questions about things. Everything was arranged including accommodation.

On the day of surgery I received excellent care and could not ask for more, was made to feel at ease and constantly checked that I was okay. Everything was explained and any questions were answered.

Aftercare, again excellent, emails and queries answered, numerous telephone calls made to me to answered any small queries, even down to hair washing and reminders of advice already given, all written info was also provided and anything needed after surgery.

Thank you for making everything as straight forward as possible.

As a recipient of a 1980’s plug-based hair transplant, I was a little nervous about a second procedure, but I decided that if I was to go through with another procedure I would ensure that I found the best surgeon. After some research I came across Dr Shahmalak. I liked the fact that he had done the charitable work to help acid victims restore their appearance and he had some great endorsements for his abilities as a hair transplant surgeon.

My consultation in London was brief, but informative. Dr Shahmalak made me feel completely at-ease and I left confident that he would be able to restore my NW7 hairline to something that I would be happy with. His patient coordinator, Afshan, was extremely efficient and empathetic. There was no pressure to proceed with the procedure. In fact, quite the opposite, I was asked to take some to consider my decision.

The procedure was for 12 months later in Manchester. Crown Clinic arranged for and my wife to stay at a nearby boutique hotel (within walking distance of the clinic). On the morning of the procedure I had another consultation with Dr Shahmalak where he “drew in” my new hairline with a marker pen to show me what to expect. I then met the team, who assisted Dr Shahmalak throughout the procedure. They were very professional but also made me feel very relaxed. What really made me feel particularly comfortable was the way that Dr Shahmalak had a real affinity with his team and you could tell that they really loved working there with him. There was lots of humour and banter and they took exceptional care of both me and my wife, who waited in the room just next door to the procedure room.

Once the procedure was complete, my aftercare was explained very clearly. Dr Shahmalak and his team had done such a neat and precise job of transplanting 2500 of my grafts that my recovery was extremely quick. I can’t thank him and his team enough and would thoroughly recommend Crown Clinic to anyone. In fact I already have.

My experience from initial consult pre and post surgery although worried whether it was even possible to have a transplant to having it. Dr Shahmalak was not only professional at all times he was very understanding to my feelings about my baldness and he gave me a lot of confidence to do the trial and throughout the day, as did all of the team at the clinic everyone was friendly and encouraging through the whole procedure. And although I was very nervous you all helped me through the day, and I knew no matter how small or important a question was you were there to help me in your usual cheery manner.
