Not really. I only came in touch with Dr. Cole on this forum, and what I liked about him straight away is that he pays attention to details and he seems to be the only surgeon around here who takes time to talk in detail with potential patients, also beeing very much in touch with latest research and having honest objective approach. I see plenty of people respect him as the Father of FUE.. Last info I've heard is that Dr.Cole is on his way to Cyprus to work with a team there and also he should be opening a clinic in London, so he seems rather busy.. but maybe You should send him an email or something.
For most surgeons out there FUT is still the golden standard, and I don't know if and how many put FUE first and are experts at FUE.
I can't share any personal experience though. I'm poor and cannot afford a hair transplant, so I'm only writing my general observations and impressions.
