Hi, we are a medical...
Hi, we are a medical spa office and as part of the services we offer would be an in office prescription peeling mask. We would normally give patients a small sample for allergy test of the peeling cream to bring home after the doctor or NP sees him/her. We recently found out that one of our estheticians who was prescribe the cream was doing outside services and using the prescribe cream on her sideline to profit from it.

Thank you for your reply. We found out that she was offering a doctor prescribe peeling ointment outside of work that our physician prescribe her. We offer that peeling as our in clinic service treatment. Aside from terminating her, what legal action can we take. She basically uses her own prescription that our physician prescribe to profit from it. We found out because she was servicing some of our patients which one of the patient told us that she was offering our Clinical peel for much less.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
