"Attorneys qualified to help medical spas are difficult to find," said AmSpa's Florida partner, Jeffrey L. Cohen, Esq. president & CEO of Florida Healthcare Law Firm with over 26 years' experience serving the health care industry. "Med[ical] spas are a hybrid of several different regulated professions, and the laws are so specialized that hiring an attorney with extensive experience specifically in health care is imperative."
AmSpa partnered with attorneys who are familiar with the laws in each state to provide accurate and up-to-date information. Further, AmSpa's state law summaries are posted in easy-to-understand format, using common sense language without confusing "legalese."
AmSpa currently has summaries of 8 states posted on its website—Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, and Wisconsin—with over 20 more states currently in development. Most, if not all, will be summarized within the next thirty days.
Industry professionals can click on their particular state and find a list of commonly asked regulatory questions related to that state. Each state page also provides dedicated resources such as local industry news, legislative updates, and webinars prepared by industry professionals in that state.
"AmSpa is already the best resource available for information and news in the med[ical] spa industry," Thiersch said. "We are continually searching for relevant stories and information to give our members. The state-law summaries take the site to another level, providing a resource that was missing but desperately needed."
