Default Hair Restoration Physicians in Ontario Not Allowed to Participate on our Community

Due to medical laws in Ontario, hair restoration physicians in Ontario will no longer be allowed to actively participate on our community or any similar resource that distinguishes one physician from another based on quality. Unfortunately, this affects both Dr. Hussain Rahal's and Dr. Cam Simmons' ability to participate on our community at this time.

Both Dr. Hussain Rahal and Dr. Cam Simmons have an outstanding reputation for producing excellent results and have been active members of our community for some time. Thus, it's regrettable that both physicians are currently no longer allowed to participate.

In the interest of best serving potential patients, we suggest that those seeking a hair restoration physician in Ontario search our forum for patient reviews using the names of the physician they are considering. Based on our visits to leading hair transplant clinics and long time patient feedback, we suggest that patients research and consider Dr. Cam Simmons and Dr. Hussain Rahal in particular.

While these physicians can't currently participate, patients of both Dr. Rahal and Dr. Simmons are still encouraged to participate and share their experiences and photos.

If the above rules and regulations, which only affects physicians in Ontario change, we hope that Dr. Rahal and Dr. Simmons will re-join our community and participate once again.

Thanks for everyone's understanding on this matter.

Onwards and Upwards,

Bill and Pat

It's an unfortunate situation and I'm hoping there's some way we can come back soon. However, until then we'll still be reading!

Come on Bill, it's way past April Fools Day. This can't be true! These are two of the very best in the world. What is wrong with Ontario? Can their patient coordinators or someone from the clinic post for them??

Uh, what kind of law is this exactly? Physicians can't be differentiated from each other based on quality? You must be kidding.

RCWest and aaron1234,

I wish I was kidding, but I'm not. There is a governing college in Ontario that has certain rules and regulations for physicians that they must abide by. Unfortunately, our community can't do anything about this but hopefully, in time, this will be challenged and changed.

I will keep you posted if anything changes.

Best wishes,

Bill

Unfortunately, yes it is. To differentiate based on quality of their work -- my gosh, that's so evil and UNFAIR! What a joke. I don't understand why our world is so backwards right now.
