Yes, surgery is not an assembly line.... while you're doing it. But it sure as heck is regimented strictly into steps before and after.

I don't see how the patient being late makes sense, at all, for your explanation. If the patient is late, he is late. You will still have to take pictures. If you take them before he sees Dr. Armani, or after he sees Dr. Armani, the patient is still late, no? So why not always take them before he sees Dr. Armani? Taking the pictures after he sees Dr. Armani and his hair is wet doesn't make time slow down...

In addition, I don't understand what exactly it is that you do differently from other respected clinics when "prepping" the patient for surgery, that makes you unable to do what they seem able to do: post dry/dry or wet/wet before and after photos for an apples to apples comparison. I just don't get it. It makes it look like your clinic is not very well organized.

I agree, asking questions is extremely important, but apples to apples comparison photos are extremely important as well, for the patient to assess progress, and for potential patients to judge a doctor. If these photos weren't so important, you wouldn't be posting them.
So, I don't agree with you, but you don't need to be sorry though. I'm just trying to figure this all out.

Lastly, where do you get the 5-7% figure of patients with wet before pictures? This is really weird. Did you just make this up, or did you really calculate it? If you calculated it, why not just say the actual number? I truly hope, since you are a hair transplant clinic's sales person/spokesperson/patient rep/what have you, that you are not cavalierly throwing around clinical statistics like that, without some sort of evidence to support your claim, other than you said so. Research Research Research....
