Those of you who participate in our hair loss forum community may be familiar with names like “JoTronic”, “Janna”, “Spex”, and “theHairLossCure”. These names represent a few of the leading hair restoration physicians who are recommended on the Hair Transplant Network. Because representatives of these hair transplant clinics make themselves available to seeking patients online, some doctors are gaining a high level of online visibility and reaping the benefits while other talented physicians remain unnoticed. Does a lack of online visibility equate to a lack of physician ability? How can forum members know the quality and skill of a physician if they don’t regularly present themselves online? How can we preserve the balance between keeping our hair loss forum community patient driven while encouraging clinics to participate online?
We have been working to encourage our recommended hair transplant clinics to get more involved in our community. Though many express desire, turning interest into action is often like drawing blood from a stone. Follow this link to offer your suggestions on how we can encourage them to become a constructive part of the patient education process by sharing their results online.
