Ron is the founder and Director of Hair Restoration Specialists since 1978. In his late twenties, Ron began experiencing hair loss and sought out various hair restoration methods to restore his own hair. Initially, he did not want a hair transplant because the methods used in the late 70s were not ideal. Instead, he started wearing a hair piece which then inspired him to go on a nation-wide mission to find the best techniques for performing natural looking and non-invasive hair transplants.

After meeting with multiple physicians throughout the United States, and analyzing their procedures, he brought a renowned physician to HRS who helped create our current hair transplant technique. Now, with the latest technology and expertise, Hair Restoration Specialists uses automation to perform hair transplants that produce the best results. Ron holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Tennessee and post-graduate studies completed at Creighton University.

He is a member of the American Hair Loss Council, the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, which he had an integral part in forming. Ron has been responsible for over 20,000 hair transplant procedures including pre and post-operative care and guidance. Ron resides locally, in Sandy Springs, and has 2 children and 6 grandchildren. He is an avid golfer and a true Atlanta Braves fan.
