Director of Patient Education
Gregg Kreyling is a hair transplant patient and knows the feeling of experiencing hair loss. Gregg had a hair transplant at the young age of 23 and it totally changed his life. Shortly after his procedure he joined the industry to help others who suffer from hair loss as well. “Hair transplantation had such a large impact on my life that it became a passion and I wanted to help others to be able to achieve the same results.”
Gregg has worked with both large national hair restoration companies and also independent doctors who own their own practice. “I have been able to experience working with both large and small companies and have taken the best practices of both worlds and apply it to St. Louis Hair Restoration. It is important to have an excellent medical team that focuses exclusively on hair restoration. The procedure is so precise and tedious that it really does require a surgeon that specializes only in hair transplantation and has dedicated their career to the practice.”
With 17 years of educating patients about hair restoration, Gregg is an excellent resource for your hair transplant questions. We have been told countless times that the amount of information that he provides in a consultation far exceeds what you are likely to experience elsewhere. “My goal is to help patients make an informed decision about their hair transplant. I don’t take a ‘sales’ approach. I approach the consultation as educational. I’ve sat in the patient’s chair and I didn’t want to be “sold” a procedure. I already knew I wanted hair. I wanted to be educated so I could choose the best doctor to do my procedure. So, I like to use the consultation to discuss the details of why it works, how it works, and what separates one doctor and technique from another so the patient can better understand where to get the best result. There is no pressure to move forward. The procedure sells itself, I just guide patients in the right direction so they can have a successful result.”
Dr. Pawlinga has performed thousands of hair transplant procedures over his 18 years as a hair transplant surgeon. Combined with Gregg’s 17 years as a patient educator, this makes St. Louis Hair Restoration the most experienced group in St. Louis.
