I can’t believe it is so hard to speak to a trustworthy, medical professional.
On 3 separate occasions now I have been to a consultation and every time it has been a classic salesman that tries to sound scientific. This might work, but for the fact that to people like us, this is important and so we have done tons of research and are easy able to spot where the man is simply making things/words up.
I would like to present my symptoms and be told the best course of action by a professional, instead, they try to work out how much I have to spend and then just sell anything and everything they have to sell.
I employ no salesmen or saleswomen and never have. I believe that such people have an agenda to SELL, and my agenda is to give care when it is APPROPRIATE. I don’t need a go-between to insulate my patients from my opinions or my fees. I am not selling a used car to my patients, but a high class service with the underlying understanding that he/she might not need it. A sales person has not such basis in his interaction with the patient and he/she is not in a position to draw any opinion as to the eligibility of any person asking for a hair restoration procedure. I remember a saleslady who worked for a clinic (not mine) and she had the highest conversion rate for surgeries. The way she did it, was to send a photo of herself to the prospect and offer him a ‘special service’ the night before the surgery. You don’t have to be creative in detecting prostitution behind the sale of a hair transplant.
