Tom Caron – NESN TV Sports Personality
“In this business it’s hard not to know Dr. Leonard, his Wes Welker commercials are everywhere. As a sportscaster, I see Dr. Leonard as part of the landscape,” said Tom Caron. Tom has now joined a well-known group of spokesmen for Dr. Leonard including All-Pro Wide Receiver Wes Welker, NFL Player Chris Gronkowski, Former Boston Bruin Lyndon Byers, Television Star Kevin Chapman and Professional Poker Player Jeff Gross.
Tom is an 18-year NESN veteran and serves as host of the network’s Red Sox pre and post-game programming. The Lewiston, Maine native also serves as the network’s college hockey play-by-play announcer and blogs regularly at NESN.com. He was named New England’s favorite TV sports personality in a 2013 poll conducted by Charter Media and Market Research. When looking back on the challenges with his hair loss, he explained that certain angles on TV and the lighting would make it seem as if he didn’t have a lot of hair.
Tom confessed that while he always had a receding hairline, it was not until his late 30s or 40s that he noticed his hair was beginning to thin. Once, while out to lunch, someone remarked in the middle of their meal “are you losing your hair?” That was the first time it dawned on Tom to do something about it, and to Tom there was no other option than Dr. Leonard.
Dr. Leonard performed a hair transplant with a traditional strip procedure on Tom in November 2013. “He was a perfect candidate for this procedure,” said Dr. Leonard. “His new head of hair will really help boost his confidence on camera and help rid the worries of bad camera angles or lighting.” Overall, the procedure took five hours and Tom was able to relax and enjoy a movie of his choice from the office’s extensive library.
Tom recalls his experience during the procedure with ease saying, “Dr. Leonard made it really easy and talked me through the whole thing.”
