On October 28, 2013 Cole Instruments had the distinct pleasure of meeting Balen Abdullah, MD. Dr. Balen Abdullah is a plastic surgeon currently practicing medicine at the Haweler Teaching Hospital in the Kurdistan Region of Erbil Iraq. He is an active member of the ISHRS and attended this year's meeting in San Francisco, California. Dr. Balen as he is known by us, enjoyed his first visit to the United States and was extremely pleased with the instruction he received from Dr. Cole in the operation of the PCID during his stay here. Dr. Balen is the proud owner of a PCID he purchased from Cole Instruments earlier this year. All of us at Cole Instruments wish Dr. Balen the greatest success with the PCID in his hair restoration practice.
