I have sent the complete story of Steven Cosentino, Bill  Horninger and Empire Medical Training to CNBC for their show "American Greed".  I was a customer of this scam artist and wish I had read all the info contained on this website prior to wasting $4000.  Everything you read is true.  Bill Horninger is NOT a doctor, the seminars are garbage, etc. I sincerely pray that Steven Cosentino rots in a jail cell for a very long time.  If there is no justice in his lifetime I am confident that God will see fit to send him directly to hell to burn forever. This man is evil and Im excited to have already heard back from CNBC regarding this company.

Correction For Below Statement

AUTHOR: More Updates - (United States of America)

Below I say that everything is 100% true, I have no proof but I have known Steve for many years and I would have to say he is the worst person I have ever met on this planet. I think he is criminally insane because of all the crazy things I have see and personally heard from ex-employees, ex-clients, and other people who know him.

So everything here being 100% true is my opinion based on my years of knowin this person. I am NOT AN EX-EMPLOYEE and would never let myself be employees by such a person.

More Stories From Real Doctors Who Were Taken Advantage Of By Empire Medical Training

AUTHOR: Truth Teller - (United States of America)

Here is an article from a real doctor telling the story of how she sued Empire Medical Training.

I am posting the reference url here as to not confuse anyone because I did not write the article / review.  It is a greate example of what the truth is about Stephen Cosentino and it comes from a very valid source, this is not just a fake ost it is the real deal from what I can see:
Reference Url: http://www.courthousenews.com/2013/09/04/60849.htm

Article:

(CN) - A gynecologist who used her own face as an advertisement for her aesthetic medical practice may have a case over the injection that allegedly disfigured her, a federal judge ruled.
     Yvette Gentry is an OB/GYN who specializes in treating skin conditions associated with aging. She enrolled in two workshops Empire Medical Training presented in San Francisco last year to expand the number of procedures she would be able to offer her patients.
     William Horninger taught the workshops and allegedly identified himself as Dr. Horn, even though he is not a licensed physician.
     Gentry said it was during one of the workshops when Horninger injected the adermal filler Prevelle Silk into a blood vessel in her forehead.
     The injection allegedly caused Gentry immense pain and, five days later, "her skin began to swell up and a large area of Dr. Gentry's forehead turned a deep purple color," according to the complaint.
     Gentry later learned that Prevelle Silk should not be injected into a blood vessel because of the associated risk of infarction or necrosis, which can cause tissue death and permanent discoloration.
     Although Gentry's "scarring and bruising have diminished somewhat," they still remain "permanent, prominent, and noticeable," and have caused her physical and emotional harm, her complaint states.
     Because of the scarring, Gentry "is no longer able to use her own face as an advertisement for prospective patients who are interested in aesthetic procedures," causing her medical practice to suffer, according to the complaint.
     Gentry sued Empire Medical Training, its owner, Stephen Cosentino; and Horninger, on numerous counts, including battery, failure to warn, negligent infliction, and violations of the California Unfair Competition Law.
     Empire Medical Training sought to compel the dispute to arbitration, based on the registration and terms & condition forms that Gentry filled out to attend the October 2012 workshops.
     An arbitration clause, which appears below the signature line in smaller print, calls for all disputes to be handled by binding arbitration in Florida and to be paid for by the person attending the workshops.
     U.S. District Judge William Orrick found that Thursday that the arbitration clause was unconscionable and, therefore, not enforceable.
     "Hiding the arbitration clause in a jumble of language below the signature line in tiny print, requiring its customers to participate in arbitration in Florida for claims arising in California, and making those customers bear the entire costs of arbitration, even if they prevail and regardless of who initiates the arbitration, conveys a clear effort by Empire Medical to impose arbitration as an inferior forum that works to its advantage," Orrick wrote.
     Orrick also found against Cosentino's assertion that the California court does not have personal jurisdiction over him because he was not present at the workshops.
     Here, Gentry adequately pleaded that Cosentino directed his conduct and solicited his business in California by sending Horninger to California to put on the workshops and by being prominently featured in Empire Medical advertising and press releases directed at California, according to the ruling.
     "Dr. Gentry has also pleaded more than conclusory allegations that Dr. Cosentino knew that Mr. Horninger falsely held himself out as a medical doctor and injected controlled substances into workshop participants," Orrick wrote. "She alleges that Dr. Cosentino personally witnessed Mr. Horninger inject someone with a drug at a workshop in 2009 and that he wrote a reply on a consumer website responding to an accusation that Mr. Horninger held himself out as an anesthesiologist at a workshop in Philadelphia."
     Given that Dr. Cosentino purposefully sent his company to California to conduct the Empire Medical workshops, in addition to the allegation that Dr. Cosentino and Empire Medical are alter egos, it is reasonable to subject him to personal jurisdiction in California, Orrick ruled.

Everything Above Is 100% True!!!

AUTHOR: FYI - (United States of America)

I have known Steven Cosentino for many years and I am not an employee. He is a racits, greedy, rude to woman, and takes advantage of anyone he can. His wife is also extremely greedy and they both will tell you anything you want to hear to get you to trust them. I have seen so many unhappy people from Empire Medical Training. If I had to make a guess I would say that 40% of everyone I know that went to his seminars were extremely unhappy.

He also will tell you that one doctor will show but that doctor does not even know he was booked. He will make it like the doctor is a super star and he never even booked the doctor.  They replace him with someone else and do not tell you unless you ask. They did that with the doctor that is right accross the street from Empire Medical Training on commercial blvd. 

Want to see for yourslef? Go to Empire Medical Training's office, walk accross the street to the place where they help you with balding and replacing of hair, ask to speak to the owner then ask him about Steven Cosentino. You will get the real story about how slimey and lying Steve Cosentino is.
