Ron Doria - Director
Ron Doria is the director at Atlanta Hair Restoration Center. His course work at Boston College for Health/Fitness and Nutrition prepared him for a career in the Health and Fitness industry, and he now has over 10 years of experience in hair restoration. After winning numerous bodybuilding titles over the years, the most prestigious being Mr. All-Natural USA, Ron Doria was sidelined by an automobile accident. Facial and scalp damage, resulting in hair loss, forced him to research hair transplant surgeries. As a result of his research at the time, he was discouraged to find that the transplants offered in 1998 were extremely “plug-like” in appearance. Discouraged, he remained bald for six years.
With technology changing rapidly, hair transplantation became virtually undetectable in 2003. When the linear strip method and NeoGraft procedures finally became available as viable hair restoration options, Doria seized the opportunity, and opted to undergo the life changing procedure. Amazed at the success of his results, Doria decided that he wanted to help others who were experiencing hair loss as well. Providing the service of hair restoration to others became his lifelong passion. He has truly practiced what he preaches, and looks forward to helping each patient achieve their individual results!
