Complaint Review: Aesthetic Medical Training
Aesthetic Medical Training Aesthetic Medical Training, Total Rip Off, Misrepresentation, Fraud, Inadequate, Stay Away Austin Texas
I found Aesthetic Medical Training from the internet and contacted them. I am a board certified Family Medicine Physician with 15 years in practice, I have 3 offices and want to add Aesthetics. The first thing they told me was how they are the official trainer for Allergan which was probably one of the main reasons I chose this company over others. I contacted Allergan directly and they said, “we do not recommend or endorse any third party companies or individuals “. I asked them specifically about Aesthetic Medical Training and their reply was that they have never heard of the company and that there are dozens of companies offering Botox Training so they would not know. For me, that (from Aesthetic Medical Trainers) is giving inaccurate, even fraudulent information and im pretty taken back by that. IF the training was good, I would not care, but, this course was “Mickey Mouse” from start to finish.
The course was taught by a NURSE PRACTITIONER which for me is a disappointment considering I paid almost $2,000 for a one day course and an NP is clearly not the most experienced/qualified individual to teach others! This type of training should only be taught by qualified PHYSICIANS! This is not a course on learning to do “blood draws” or starting an IV. No offense to NP but to properly learn Aesthetics you need to learn from an experienced Aesthetic Physician, either a plastic surgeon or someone similar. The girl seemed to be nervous and made statements which were not correct or accurate. I believe she had very little experience and was new to these injections herself. There were many questions from the group which she could not answer properly. When I invest this kind of money on a program and decide to devote a weekend away from m y family,
I am looking to participate in more of an event, not sit around looking at each other at a 7 man show. There were only 7 people in the entire course and I felt like I was dumb enough to sign up for this training. Extremely boring, there were absolutely NO vendors, no companies to talk to about setting up an aesthetic spa, no materials to help us get started from the different aesthetic vendors out there. What type of educational organization is this? I left with very little information and left realizing I need to repeat the course somewhere else, what a bummer!
Lastly, I thought I would at least be able to inject my wife and have myself injected with Botox and Fillers, especially after paying close to the $2,000 (actual cost $1,675). From all the websites I have read who offer this type of training, the students inject each other first then they inject the volunteers. Well, with these guys they squeeze you for more money. I had to pay an additional $500 for 2 syringes of Juvederm and I had to pay $280 for 40 units of Botox that I injected on my wife. With other course I have now researched, almost every company includes the products free with the training, especially when you pay this kind of money.
