Hairtransplant network is not to be trusted!!!

AUTHOR: Carlmiami99 - ()

 My name is Carl Counts

Hairtransplantnetwork puts on some major front about fairness but they side with the big money doctors and shut down patients to protect their financial interest!   I was majorly butcher by hair transplant hack alan bauman the butcher.  He left me with 2 major scars, nerve damage and none of the hair he transplanted grew.   When i called out bill falceros the managing publisher of the website openly about the back stabbing deal he made with alan bauman to shut me down he immediately banned me from the site.  He then responded with his usual fairness speech!   Claiming i have to be fair to a doctor that has lefted me majorly scarred.  I have to be fair to a doctor that left me with major nerve damage.  I have to be fair to a doctor that has falsely accused me of extortion.  Exactly how much fairness do i have to show this doctor after the butcher job he did on me?


Anytime a patient post a negative response on a doctor bill shuts them down and aggressively sides with the doctor .  Then he goes into his fairness speech .  He will also add how the subject is close and no need to continue.  He cowardly sent me private messages telling me to shut up about bauman the butcher or be banned!!!   When i went public on his site about this he banned me.   Be careful he is well spoken but not to be trusted!!   He claims the recommended doctors on their site have to meet some big qualifications!   They only need to pay the fee.  I have seen many results of their so called recommended doctors and the results are terrible!  DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING YOU READ ON THAT SITE!!

Dear Anonymous,

If you have a legitimate complaint against the Hair Transplant Network, why not contact us directly rather than hide behind an anonymous alias and make unsubstantiated and unfounded remarks?

We have never extorted money, threatened to destroy any physician's practice, nor have we engaged in fraud of any kind.

Our popular and respected community has been helping hair loss sufferers find excellent hair transplant surgeons for over ten years.

To maintain the quality and credibility of our community's recommendations, recommended physicians must have a demonstrated track record of providing consistently high quality follicular unit hair transplant results. The credentials and experience of the physician and staff are also important in determining who is chosen.

Physicians are chosen to participate in our community based on the ability to produce excellent result on a consistent basis. Physicians who meet our standards and choose to join pay a sponsorship fee to support our educational and support community. Surgeons may be removed from our community at our discretion at any time if we are no longer confident in their ability to produce state of the art hair transplant results.

How we recommend physicians, our criteria for selection, and information about sponsorship fees can be found at http://www.hairtransplantnetwork.com/Consult-a-Physician/our-hair-restoration-physicians.asp.

We suspect that you are a hair transplant surgeon who's either 1) been turned away from potential recommendation, 2) been removed from our community for quality control issues or 3) had several legitimate patient complaints and are afraid of being removed.

This last year, we have fought a couple of lawsuits from disgruntled physicians who'd rather prevent patients from sharing their legitimate concerns and opinions on our hair restoration forum (http://www.hair-restoration-info.com/eve) and/or bully their way back onto our community. However, we will not be coerced into being silenced or lowering our standards. We have proven we are willing to go the distance in court to keep our standards high and protect patients and the credibility and integrity of our recommendations. These lawsuits were dismissed and free speech continues to reign as it always will.

Our patient driven community continues to allow patients to share their genuine opinions and experiences on our discussion forum. Physician members of our community agree to this when they join our community. This is stated directly on our website under the Physician Accountability clause at http://www.hairlosslearningcenter.org/content/Consult-Us/membership-standards.asp.

We also believe in providing and maintaining a balanced and fair environment for both patient and physician. See "Maintaining a Safe and Fair Environment on our forum for Patients and Physicians" at http://hair-restoration-info.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/7466060861/m/119101871.

Like the world at large, our community is never completely free from controversy and dissenting opinions.

However, we are committed to balancing our hard earned reputation for running a fair and open forum with the need to assure that patients are free to share genuine experiences and physicians are not unfairly maligned on our community.

We ask now that you either substantiate your claims with evidence or remove them with a public apology. We also invite you to contact us directly if you have legitimate concerns we can help you with at help@hairtransplantnetwork.com.
