I think you jokers do not understand what’s going on:

What is really disturbing, in order of sequence, is NHI via Dr. Bernstein & Rassman stated that the Woods method of surgery was not viable and in a matter of weeks the same doctors at NHI introduced & proclaimed the FUE & Fox test as valid. If the FUE & FOX test was so great, what happened to the introduction and speeches at the ISHRS convention? How many doctors in the new IAHRS will be performing the FUE & Fox test. Even if Dr. Rassman & Bernstein shared the FUE info with their colleagues it wouldn’t matter because they are not buying into it.
Does anyone know of anyone that had a successful FUE from NHI? I mean other than Dr. Rassman’s son or a few NHI employees! For that matter, does anyone know of anyone that passed the FOX test? It seems that the highly profitable but unnecessary FOX test is a complete scäm and was only invented as a result in preventing prospective HT patients from traveling to Australia.
I don’t care if anyone travels to OZ for a hair transplant or has the surgery at all for that matter. What NHI did with promoting the FUE & FOX test is no better than the advertising that MHR & Bosley does. But don’y worry gents, if you fail the FOX test your $150.00 is applied to a strip excision.
This in unethical and indefensible!

“But don’y worry gents” - Dr. Cole learnt from THE PAST …
Dr. Cole: “At the same time Dr. William Rassman, MD was promoting follicular unit extraction or FUE itself. Dr. William Rassman, MD and Dr. Robert Bernstein, MD advanced the science of this procedure itself although their individual success rate was not as high and their goal to supplant strip harvesting with follicular isolation technique, FIT, or follicular unit extraction, FUE, remains in question. Dr. William Rassman, MD and Dr.
Robert Bernstein, MD practiced their version of FUE or follicular unit extraction for about 1 ½ year before they presented their technique to the world. This created a degree of mystic but did little to promote the surgery itself. They also tended to lure individuals in for the FOX test only to tell them they were FOX negative. This was generally followed by an attempt to convert the patient to a strip harvest. Obviously, this did not help to advance the technique.”

So why shouldn’t Cole do the same today in a similar way??
Just say to the losers “ACell is super exciting including regrown hairs” - and desperated losers will run like hell …
Currently, the only one who has THE MOST experience with ACell is surely not Cole, it is -and I guess will always be- Dr. Hitzig.
Interestingly, suddenly is nobody saying “we will double-blind & peer-reviewed papers see” … funny …
