?Methods for reducing enhancement rates are important because these retreatments are expensive for patients and the practice. Patients are unhappy if they need an enhancement and are also at increased risk for complications. For the practice, these patients take up chair time and operating room slots that could be filled by new, revenue-generating patients, and they can also reduce potential new revenue by negative word-of-mouth effects,? noted Dr Lindstrom."

Dr. Richard Lindstrom may, perhaps, also entertain the notion that claiming to perform corneal refractive surgery on ANY PUPIL SIZE could also generate some negative word-of-mouth effects.

"Theoretically, every happy patient sends you five others and every unhappy patient costs you 20," Lindstrom said.

Surgeon: Protect yourself from lawsuits in refractive surgery practice

Quote:
Richard L. Lindstrom, MD, who moderated the session, added that every refractive surgeon should expect to be sued at least three times during his or her career, based on statistics. Surgeons should not take lawsuits personally, should get the best attorney possible ? not just the one recommended by the insurance company ? and should not settle the case too easily, Dr. Lindstrom suggested.

Dr. Richard Lindstrom is now being featured on the front page of the patient hate site owned by cyber-assassin Glenn Hagele, Exec. Dir. of Council for Refractive Surgery Quality Assurance (CRSQA).

www dot glennhagele dot com

CRSQA's business phone number recently appeared on the caller ID of a female patient who is being seriously harassed by Glenn Hagele. Glenn Hagele later made a statement on a public newsgroup that he indeed called this female patient (who he has been harassing) to confirm that "the phone rings through". He had to admit it because the patient has proof.

Glenn Hagele's attacks on patients include harassing patients at work and hiring investigators to get information on patients. Glenn Hagele threatened to publish patients personal information, including their social security numbers.

As an executive committee member of ASCRS, I would think Dr. Richard Lindstrom's public image is important to him personally and to ASCRS.

Didn't Glenn Hagele recently try to pin the blame on ASCRS for some ridiculous stunt he pulled involving a falsified document?

http://www.lasikfraud.com/news/archives/000164.html

Based on the response of Dr. Richard Lindstrom to Glenn Hagele's recent behavior, it appears to me that Dr. Richard Lindstrom sees Glenn Hagele as a liability and bad for ASCRS and the industry. So why doesn't Lindstrom say so publicly? Is he trying to protect the public image of CRSQA, the organization run by a non-doctor who harasses patients?

Richard Lindstrom is (or was) a CRSQA surgeon. CRSQA surgeons pay Glenn Hagele. For more information about CRSQA, visit:

It looks like Richard Lindstrom took his own advice regarding Glenn Hagele...

"Stay as far away as you can."

This link on the usaeyes website no longer works...

Good move.

ASCRS President Richard Lindstrom makes fun of LASIK patients with impaired night vision:

OCULAR SURGERY NEWS U.S. EDITION June 1, 2007

Quote:
The Cowardly Lion, played convincingly by Richard L. Lindstrom, MD, lamented that he could not catch his food because his cheap LASIK gave him bad night vision and halos.
