When a doctor exploits his medical license by offering hair transplants without training or experience, his activities reflect a flagrant disregard to the welfare of the patient. I am fully aware that bands of technicians are offering inexperienced doctors the opportunity to enter the business of hair transplantation with a focus on new sources of revenue for their practice. This is becoming more and more common. Although these technicians bring the technical skills to do the transplant, they do not bring along with it the competence that is learned by proper training and experience in the field. I warn all prospective patients to be very careful of any doctor offering this service if they had not done at least a hundred of such cases and have been trained in the field. Always check out the doctor’s experience in the field.
