American Laser Clinics Hires Armed Guard To Prevent Doc From Seeing His Own Patients.

American Laser Clinics decided to wage war on one of their medical directors by hiring an armed guard to prevent him from seeing patients or accessing charts while continuing to treat patients and insisting he was providing oversight.

American Laser Clinics (purchased Advanced Laser Clinics but kept the ALC so that they didn't need new monogramed towells) has a number of laser hair removal clinics around the country. (You can read more about my thoughts on medspa franchises and ALC here.)

Evidently, American Laser doesn't like any lip from physicians. Check out this photo showing a guard standing in the waiting area of American Laser Clinics to prevent the doctor from seeing patients or seeing charts. While the headline appears tabloid, it's completely accurate. The physician concerned contacted me for my opinion as well as DOPL (the Utah licensing enforcement agency).

(This is an article in progress. Check back later.)
