How to Choose a Doll Doctor

  • How long have you been restoring dolls?
  • What is your background in doll repair?
  • Are you experienced in doing the type of repair I am requesting?
  • Can you show me before/after pictures of your work or where might I find pictures of your work.
  • Please supply references from past clients.
  • Get a written estimate of repairs.
  • How long will the repairs take?

Be aware of the value of your doll. Make sure the doll is insured for its replacement value when shipping to the Doll Hospital and for its return to you. Take pictures of the doll before shipment for insurance purposes.

DO NOT SHIP YOUR DOLL UNTIL AUTHORIZATION HAS BEEN GIVEN BY YOUR CHOSEN DOLL HOSPITAL.
