It really bothers me when the press goes after a good doctor. Craig Alan Bittner just wanted to help people. He just wanted to give back to this world. Now, for all his efforts, he is being unfairly targeted and hunted down like an animal. It's sad. He left a farewell letter to his patients on his Web site which stated he was relocating to South America to do volunteer work with a small clinic "where I can help those most in need." This physician was a true pioneer. He was first to use discarded body fat from his patients to fuel his biodiesel car. After a two-month apprenticeship with a dermatologist, he learned to do liposuction whereupon he opened up shop on Rodeo Drive. He bombarded the internet with advertising and got very busy; busy enough to let some other "assistants" (non-physicians) do most of the liposuction. And now he is in trouble for sharing his passion. Why? But liposuction wasn't his only love. He was one of the first to open up an MRI center that "he claimed was better than mammography for detecting breast cancer". Only after a bunch of lawsuits and run-ins with the state board did Dr. Bittner have to switch to bodysculping for big bucks. Copernicus, DaVinci, Bittner - all brilliant men who have been tortured for their ingenuity and guts. I will miss you Dr. Bittner. I only hope you help liposuct the hell out of those poor South Americans.
