Customer Question

I have developed a method for hair loss due to chemo, I would like to reward the clinic for allowing us to operate during the infusion process. What is allowed as reward or compensation? It is not considered a medical process, it is considered hair care.

Dr. Sheriff :

Greetings!

Dr. Sheriff :

Can you please explain as to what is your profession and whether you have developed a method to treat patients regain hair lost due to chemo therapy.

Customer:

I am an engineer by education with rescue and industrial/wilderness first responder experience. We use hypothermia to prevent chemo induced hair loss. We have an 85% success rate with all chemo drugs and some drug regimes over 95% success. It has been the standard of care in Europe for 20 years, overlooked by the US medical community for many reasons. We have found a way to effectively use the process in a clinic friendly manner. My question is what rules dictate how a doctor can be compensated for allowing us to operate in his clinic as a hair care service?

Dr. Sheriff :

I suggest this should be discussed with an oncologist or an Hospital Administrator where chemo-therapies are undertaken.

Dr. Sheriff :

If you satisfied with my answer please click accept .

Customer:

That is a good statement of the obvious, however none of the Dr.s seem to know what is legal. that is why I am looking for them, I was hoping for an FDA reference document. Do you know of any?

Dr. Sheriff :

I am sorry I do not know

Expert:  Dr. Cameron replied 5 years ago.
I am confused. Are the patients paying you for this service?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes they pay me, but I would like to find a legal way to compensate the clinic for allowing us to service our clients in the facility.
Expert:  Dr. Cameron replied 5 years ago.
You actually cannot. That would be perceived to be a kickback and that is illegal.
You can give them nice holiday presents, but anything more than a few hundred dollars would be frowned upon.

warm regards
