About our Practice
Gabel Hair Restoration Center is the solo practice of Dr. Steven Gabel and is dedicated specifically to the needs of the hair restoration patient.

All surgery is performed in our private, in-office surgery suite under local anesthesia.

Dr. Gabel’s private office and surgical suite allow him to get to know his patients on an individual basis and provide a superior level of personal attention. This is very important to the doctor. There is no consultant or “salesperson” who does the initial interview and teaching. Dr. Gabel personally meets with his patients for every one of their visits. During consultations, he spends as much time as necessary to get a clear picture of his patients’ goals and expectations. He then provides an honest assessment of their needs and tailors his recommendations to each individual patient. Next, he designs a treatment plan that includes both medical and surgical options. This level of personalized attention continues from the initial consultation through the surgical procedure and the postoperative visits.
If you are considering hair replacement surgery and would like to consult with Dr. Gabel about your options, contact Gabel Hair Restoration Center today. The doctor offers free, no obligation consultations and would be happy to sit down with you and discuss your hair restoration possibilities.
