FILING AN ETHICS COMPLAINT AGAINST AN ISHRS MEMBER

The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery is a non-profit professional membership organization that promotes education in the specialty of hair restoration surgery. The ISHRS maintains a Code of Ethics (“Code”) in which it expects its members to comply. If you have direct knowledge of an ISHRS member’s violation of the Code, you may submit a complaint against an ISHRS member using the ISHRS Complaint Form. The ISHRS Ethics Committee investigates ethical complaints against ISHRS members.

The ISHRS will only consider complaints alleging conduct by an ISHRS member in violation of the Code, and will not consider complaints: (i) alleging medical malpractice; (ii) submitted by anyone who does not have direct knowledge of the alleged violation of the Code; (iii) filed more than 1 year of the date Complainant was aware of, or in the opinion of the Chair (or of the Committee, if the matter is submitted to the Committee) should have been aware of, facts giving rise to the alleged violation of the Code; or (iv) otherwise not compliant with ISHRS’s Code of Ethics Disciplinary Procedures (“Procedures”). Complainants should be aware that they must give permission for their complaint and their identity to be disclosed to the Respondent. Complaints that meet the requirements will be addressed in accordance with the Procedures, a copy of which is also available via a hyperlink below for your reference.

In order to file a complaint, you must first verify that the person you wish to file a complaint against is a member of the ISHRS.
