SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The state has banned a Syracuse doctor from performing cosmetic surgery because he used an unqualified technician in a hair transplant procedure.

The state Board for Professional Medical Conduct ordered Dr. Dennis Daly to close SNY Surgery Center in East Syracuse. It also directed him to permanently stop performing hair transplants, Botox treatments and other types of cosmetic surgery.In a signed consent agreement, Daly did not contest the misconduct charges against him.

Daly is a family and geriatric medicine doctor who practices at Familycare Medical Group in Camillus. He filed a business certificate in 2013 for SNY Surgery Center, a hair transplant business.

The board said a hair transplant procedure at SNY in 2017 was performed, in part, by an individual who did not have a medical license. The board said Daly “had reason to know” the individual did not have proper training or experience.

The board put Daly on probation for three years and said he can only practice medicine when monitored by another licensed doctor.

Daly refused to discuss the case.

Daniel Laraby, the doctor’s attorney, said Daly believed the technician who assisted him had proper credentials. The technician did not hold a scalpel or make any incisions, Laraby said. He said the state did not find any medical errors occurred during the procedure.

SNY was affiliated with A&E, a company that provides laser hair removal and other cosmetic services. SNY was previously operated by another doctor who retired, Laraby said. The owner of A&E asked Daly to take over the SNY practice, he said. The owner of A&E did not return phone calls from Syracuse.com.Daly did one or two hair transplants a month, Laraby said.

“This was just a side project maybe he shouldn’t have gotten involved in,” Laraby said. “This wasn’t something he was making a lot of money off of. He was just trying to stretch his legs a little bit.”

Daly has practiced family medicine more than 30 years.

This happens more than you know, along with other shady practices and dealings. We’ve been responsible for a lot of the clean up, if only more guys knew about us, they wouldn’t be getting disfigured.

Im sorry but I say this again, I dont understand how someone can just go and have such a life changing, complex procedure without doing any research.  Besides the fact this doctor is unknown he also does all kind of cosmetic surgeries which means he is not really specialized with HT.

First I didnt talk about this forum but research in general. I research in lots of hairloss sites and forums and didnt encounter this name once (or at least not in a way that would be rememberable), so even if some forums are kinda biased, you still can have some general sense for which doctor you should consider,  because there is a consensus about the best doctors across all.

Second this site seem credible since I see here bad reviews of recommended doctors, and didnt see much bashing on other doctors.

This guy was a troll, we host good, bad, and even ugly reviews. Coincidentally, he started posting on positive comments on reviews of a surgeon who was caught giving financial incentives to post here.

Well it looks like NY has come a long way since my lawsuit over 20 years ago. At that time the state of NY and state of NJ both refused to even look at multiple claims of people without proper credentials performing hair transplants. I was in a lawyers office while he was on the phone with the NJ Attorney Generals office and they told the lawyer that we couldn't sue for medical malpractice because we couldn't sue a Dr if he wasn't present during the operation and we couldn't sue the person performing it if he wasn't a Dr because you can only claim medical malpractice against a Dr. They refused to even look at it and there were multiple claims plus a class action with 120 previous patients involved. Most of the people involved continued to practice hair transplants for years after that. We never got an answer of why anyone needed to have a medical license if there was no penalty for not having one.
