• Is Your Hair Transplant Surgeon Telling You The Truth?

    Spencer Kobren speaks with IAHRS accepted member Dr. Glenn Charles about the importance of being honest with prospective hair transplant patents even if that means losing the “sale.” Remember, hair transplant surgery is not a one size fits all procedure, so if you’re considering surgery be armed with the information you need to make truly informed decisions.

  • President Trump Allegedly Takes Propecia, But As With All Medications, It’s Not For Everyone

    The anecdotal incidence of the phenomenon known as post-finasteride syndrome (PFS) seems to be receiving more attention in the mainstream media than ever before, since it’s been revealed that President Trump is being prescribed the hair loss drug by his personal physician. The most commonly reported persistent side effects of finasteride are loss of libido, erectile dysfunction, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, panic attacks, penile shrinkage, gynecomastia, muscle atrophy, cognitive impairment and insomnia.

    Spencer Kobren and Joe Tillman both long time finasteride users speak with Tom, a physician who has been suffering with many of the adverse side effects described by those who believe they are victims of PFS.

    To provide some perspective, Dr. Richard Hoffman, a physician who was a site investigator in the original clinical trials for finasteride and who also happens to be a patient advocate, who has taken on the role of exposing the inflated claims of drug and device companies for years, has a different take on this relatively new phenomenon or drug induced anomaly.

    “The JAMA Dermatologymeta-analysis did not find any evidence for a life-altering impact of finasteride, just that studies consistently failed to provide sufficient data to adequately characterize the potential harms of the drug. And yet the media coverage of the topic, based on these individual stories, presents an extremely dire portrait.”

  • The Business of Hair Transplants – How Have Things Gotten So Out Of Control?

    Spencer Kobren speaks to TBT’s Undercover Doc, concerning the hypocrisy and apathy that has made this specialty a much more dangerous environment for consumers to navigate, as well as making it practically impossible for the well intentioned, ethical physician to practice without making significant ethical concessions in order to compete.
