Dr. Ramona Kelemen holds two doctorate degrees: M.D. (EU) and N.D. Her path to attaining both of those honors is as unique as each one of the patients we see every day at the Scottsdale Institute for Cosmetic Dermatology.
In 2001, she graduated as a doctor of medicine from Vasile Goldis University in Arad, Romania. She is licensed to practice medicine in the European Union.
After her 2001 graduation from medical school, Dr. Kelemen moved to Scottsdale, where she began working as a hair transplant technician for Dr. Shelly Friedman. Although she has her MD degree from Europe and is ECFMG certified, she decided to extend her knowledge and joined an American medical school program at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, thus enabling her to combine allopathic and naturopathic medical knowledge.
Eighteen years and 4,500 patients later, under Dr. Friedman’s guidance and mentorship, Dr. Kelemen has grown to become a cutting-edge provider in this unique field. With a passion for treating hair loss in men and women with the latest surgical and non-surgical hair restoration techniques, Dr. Kelemen integrates the best of what conventional and naturopathic medicine have to offer to create a unique and personal experience for patients with optimal results.
“I love building partnerships with our patients,” Dr. Kelemen said recently, “by creating a visit that is both empowering and educational to ensure they feel capable of attaining their goals of looking and feeling their best.”

REVIEWS for DR. KELEMEN
“I have never met a doctor as kind and compassionate as Dr. Ramona Kelemen. She explained everything and repeated anything that wasn’t understood. She consistently asked if there was any pain or if there were any questions. Her follow-up was outstanding. She shared her cell phone number, returned calls and texts immediately and never implied one instance of annoyance no matter how many times she was called/texted. In fact, she indicated concern when there were any problems (a bit of pain) and prescribed additional medication as needed. As for the procedure itself, it did present a bit more pain than was indicated by the salesperson, Dave. Otherwise, this place is amazing and the results are wonderful.”

“I recently had a robotic hair restoration procedure with Dr. Kelemen. I initially made an appointment for a consultation and was greeted with kind and friendly staff immediately entering the office. I had my preferences going in and was able to convey my questions, concerns, and needs to Dr. Kelemen who gave me her utmost attention during the evaluation. She let me know realistic goals and expectations, and at the end of the appointment, was able to schedule my surgery around my busy work schedule. Every step of the way, I was made to feel comfortable. Lunch was provided for me during my lengthy procedure, and during my subsequent follow up appointment, was met with smiling faces and was given thorough instructions on after care. I have not had a chance to see the finished product, as this takes time, but my experience was a very pleasant one. I would highly recommend this procedure with Dr. Kelemen and her staff.”

“Dr. Ramona Kelemen is hands down the most efficient and caring doctor I’ve ever had! She’s passionate about what she does and is great at it too. Her team of workers/helpers were all caring and detailed orientated, to ensure the best experience and success. Dr. Kelemen communicated clearly what was going to happen and discussed with me first for consent before moving forward. She’s also very down to earth and has a great personality and is funny…which made my experience phenomenal!!! Multiple times she asked to ensure I felt no pain before continuing, which I respect her concern for me as her patient. I would recommend her to anyone seriously considering a hair transplant. Many more things I can say about her and her team. Overall just great loving people who love to help others. I’m excited that she was my doctor! Go team Dr. Kelemen!!!”
