Transcript for What undercover journalists discovered about man posing as a dermatologist
BRYAN BURROUGH: You've got two different journalists who both simultaneously are showing up at SkinOvations posing as patients, and asking him to do things that he should not do, that he does. - I made an appointment to see Dean Faiello, and I went with an undercover photographer. He told me that he could remove a mole here and a mole here. - Are you bothered by one over here or-- - This one? - There is small right there. - Would you take that off? - If you want. - He said that he could remove this with a laser, and he didn't say that he was going to do a biopsy. I might have had facial cancer, and he would not have diagnosed that. - At the same time, The Post's, Jeane MacIntosh goes in for the same kind of treatment. - He literally just took a look at it, didn't do a biopsy, didn't ask me my medical history, didn't ask if I'd ever had it checked before, or anything like that. BARBARA NEVINS TAYLOR: I don't see any medical certificates. I don't see anything like that. I asked him if he was a doctor. Are you a doctor? - Yeah. BARBARA NEVINS TAYLOR: I still wanted to make sure I heard it right. I asked again, so you're a doctor? So I can trust you. - Yeah. BARBARA NEVINS TAYLOR: I don't have to worry. He even told me where he supposedly went to medical school. - I went to University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey. - He built a whole persona of being a medical doctor. And people bought it hook, line, and sinker. [MUSIC PLAYING]
