Patient Referrals (for Doctors)

Free wigs & insurance pre-approval for your patients

Did you know your patients can get free wigs at ACS? Since 1996, Andrew DiSimone has volunteered weekly at American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge (“Look Good Feel Better Program”), right here in NYC! He cuts and styles wigs for women, giving them the freedom to go about their daily lives, looking and feeling like themselves again.

Andrew is also a proud sponsor of, a 501(c)(3) that gives away free wigs to children with medial hair loss.

Helping patients get pre-approval for Medical Wigs! For those with insurance, Andrew helps women with Alopecia and those undergoing Chemo get pre-approved before they purchase a wig. All we need is a picture of their desired hair, and we’ll send them an estimate for a “Medical Hair Prosthesis” that they can forward to their insurance company. Everything can be done via email so your patients never have to leave their home or hospital.

Who’s Andrew? Voted New York Magazine’s “Best Medical Hair Loss Specialist”, Andrew designed his own brand of  wigs for Alopecia and wigs for chemo. They are offered at his top-rated hair salon in Manhattan,
