Do you provide the details of your credentialing?

Cosmetic surgeons are only included in ACSN after they have passed all credentialing and quality assurance requirements. If a doctor makes application, goes through our credentialing process and we find concerns that would not meet our credentialing standards, the doctor will not be allowed to participate. ACSN provider credentialing details are confidential and are not available for review.

Do you guarantee the doctors work?

No one can guarantee the outcome of any surgery. Many factors affect the outcome of surgery including patient compliance and individual healing differences. However, we can guarantee that the chances of a successful outcome are many times greater when you are educated, use a qualified physician, and take a proactive role in the healing process.

ACSN has signed confidentiality agreements with participating physicians. ACSN physicians have agreed to substantial discounts in order to participate in the network and prefer to have this information withheld from their competitors.

Why do you have a Disclaimer?

It is impossible to guarantee the outcome of any surgical procedure. Outcomes vary from person to person, and are affected by many factors, such as post surgery patient participation, individual rates of healing, etc. We have a disclaimer so that you understand that ACSN is only facilitating contact with physicians who have met certain criteria, but that the decision to pursue that relationship is solely up to you, and that ACSN is not responsible for the outcome or services provided by the doctor.

What is the relationship between ACSN and the participating physicians?

ACSN and the participating physicians are independent entities and have no relationship other than contracting with each other solely for the purposes of delivering the described services to ACSN members at a discounted rate.
