In today’s world there are many different practices in the medical field. One field that is increasing, the hair transplant industry, is not always safe nor do the doctors always meet the credentials to perform such surgeries. Not only are the “Dr’s” not meeting the credentials, but they are not always properly insured, which should be alarming to all patients. When considering any kind of surgery, it is crucial for you to take a critical look at the doctors, technicians and the facility to which you are going to. Make sure all your questions are answered even if you forgot to ask at the consultation appointment. A good facility with proper credentials will not be offended by your questions, because they have nothing to hide and want you to feel comfortable. You must do your due diligence the industry is changing fast and someone may try and take advantage of you.
