Harry is also known in Hollywood as the “Doctor to the Stars,” both for his plastic surgery skills and health care regimens that have helped celebrities increase their career longevity, while maintaining a straight face.
Unfortunately, Harry has been the repeated target of malicious lawsuits, from many of those same celebrities, so as the leading attorney in the field of malpractice, Harry sued himself on their behalf, which ensured that he received hefty legal fees every time he lost his medical license.
