why arent you (Dr Rassman) a member of https://www.iahrs.org/
Is this alliance/organisation credible? The reason i ask is because i am thinking of a Hair transplant and want to find the best surgeon for that. thanks for your time.
I look at IAHRS as a marketing organization for some of the best doctors in the industry. One of the requirements of the IAHRS is that the represented doctors perform only follicular unit transplantation, which I strongly agree with. I had been a member for years and my decision to withdraw was a business decision alone. I fully respect the IAHRS in that they play no industry politics and react with integrity as a consumer advocacy group.
I am fortunate in that I publish BaldingBlog daily, which has become my main means of educating the consumer public. With the many thousands of unique visitors per day, I have achieved my own marketing presence with a substantial educational backbone. In addition, I am able to use my name recognition (at least within the industry) to not necessarily need to pay to be included in every hair organization that will allow me. Most of the original work on follicular unit transplantation and follicular unit extraction (FUE) was pioneered by the New Hair Institute, and you can review my contributions on my CV.
Also, I should point out that some people confuse the IAHRS with the ISHRS, but they are unrelated.
