In response to Areas of Unethical Behavior Practiced Today:
â€œI ask you to consider your obligation under our oaths and our respective state medical board license agencies to report these doctors.â€
Why not name the unethical physicians here then, so that would-be victims can be warned ? How else are patients supposed to find out, if not from web pages like this one ? I understand the fear of libel, but is that more important than the obligation under oath referred to above?
This isn’t the 1950s Hollywood blacklist and I can not go around identifying various surgeons without them bringing on legal actions against me. While you might think it is a noble thing to do, such actions could consume all of my finances and my time and I could live in the courts rather than do surgery. I have written to the Medical Board of California whenever I’ve identified a sleazy practice for California based physicians. The State of California is good at follow-through. If the sleazy doctor is located in another state, it may not be that simple. California will always create an investigation if they receive a complaint from either another doctor or a patient who has been wronged, but some of these sleazy doctors work outside of the United States and that produces even more problems for patients who have been victimized.
If you follow my instructions on how to pick a hair transplant surgeon, you can avoid the traps and not become a victim. You need to be an educated buyer in any medical treatment. Health care, like cosmetic surgery, is a buyer beware market!
