"My experience"


  

          

I have just returned from India where I received 2,000 strip graft repair carried out by Dr. A. I am amazed at the results and the fact I have no bruising, swelling or pimples. I am so confident I have buzzed my hair to grade 1. Yes it means my scar shows but the transplanted hair looks so natural I am confident to wear it this way as opposed to have the scar covered and the front section looking stubbly. My first surgery was done in London on a whim and I paid the price for not doing my research. Once I started my research I realised how foolish I had been. I met a number of very helpful people located in the UK through this site who enabled me to view succesful transplants. I would like to thank Dr. A and his team for his excellent work, I would also like to thank D.K Sharman from the Rockland hotel for all his help, And most of all the creators of this site for allowing me to become informed and educated to be able to make a life changing decision correctly. Oh and while I was in India I met the guy undergoing the mega body hair surgery and spent a few brilliant nights in his company and though his dress sense was a little wierd his sense of humour was second to none. So thanks to him for the entertainment. I do not plan to visit this site for 6 months and then I will post photos as I know its results that count. I no longer need to spend hours on hair sites as my journey for the moment is over. I have achieved for the moment what we all seek and that is a satisfactory look. Good look to everyone in thier journeys and thanks to you all.

Yeah, Nobel have a VERY BAD reputation. You should have gone to someone like Dr May in London - he's very competent although tends to plant at low density and will therefore be dismissed by the majority of HT's pros on here.

I have also seen disgusting work by Nobel

Unfortunately i also met a patient 2 years back who had work done by Michael may and his scar was grotesque for 1200 grafts

I dont even think any strip should be done for 1200 grafts anymore let alone leave a scar that is the width of the end of a medium size book !!!

"I no longer need to spend hours on hair sites as my journey for the moment is over."

This comment seems odd coming from a guy with only 2 posts, and both were made today...

Questions: Is posting online a requirement for patients of Dr Arvind? I ask sincerely, because I've heard that it was.

If so, is it ethical for a doctor to require that his patients promote the doctor on the internet? I mean besides paying the doctor thousands of dollars, does the patient also bear the responsibility of promoting the doctor too?

Other clinics have "suggested" that patients post on line (Hasson & Wong) however I heard with Dr Arvind that it's a requirement. Is that true?

I posted primarily to thank the contributors of hairsite for educating me. I have viewed on a daily basis this site since January and I don't feel competent enough to contribute towards discussions. Prior to finding this site I had not heard of Minoxidil, Proscar. Nizoral, Avodart. etc. etc. I have had the pleasure of meeting many people in the UK who contribute towards this site who have excellent work carried out by surgeons other then Dr. A. I think anybody who has been in the same position as me would truly understand, the relief of not sitting on the internet looking at sites hoping for a miracle. I respect many people may have an agenda but I have used my real name and in full. I did not post to advertise the doctor as I am aware their are many other competent and able doctors. Forget conspiracy theories and be happy for me, as I would be happy for anybody else who was made to feel better about themselves.

arfy, get over it !!!! Dr. A . never ask me to post for him. I post to try to keep people here informed, because I know how big of a decision this is for them. I post in support of Dr. A , because I think his work is great. I did get a chance to meet some of his patients and they looked great. I think he is a very good person who cares about other people. it shows in the work that he does and how his staff is trained and how well they work together. I can completely understand this guys decision. he read the forums and made an informed decision and now just wants to get on with his life. a person can spend an awful lot of time on here if he visits day in and day out. Dr. A, took me on as a patient when no other doctor would. I am a repair case that could go on for years ( I hope not ) and no other doctor wanted this. I was told over and over to wait on HM and that they could not help me. Dr. A has said he will see my case threw to the end. you have to admire and respect a man like this.

Arfy i don't think any doctor would do that because something like that could very easeily backfire and if so could hurt his pratice more than help.

I already said that Hasson & Wong used to 'recommend' that guys post about their surgery experience on the internet, as part of their post-op instructions (I believe they stopped including that in their written instructions). It's not a stretch of the imagination that a doctor might make it a requirement.

Whatever, I am just asking a question, about something I heard about. Some guys don't want to know about it... "oh well".

Arfy, stop being such a prune. It's ridiculous to even suggest that patients are "required" to post. You have a wild imagination.

Hello???? Can you read?

I already said this was disclosed to me, by a reliable source. No "imagination" involved. And it's an established fact that H&W used to ask people to post, in their post-op instructions.

What reliable source ? Your imagination? Name one Dr. A's patient who told you that. Sting, a real patient of Dr. A, already said that is untrue.

Sting said what he knows... I said what I know. I sure hope you guys realize that not everything that happens in the HT world will get laid out here in the forum, before your eyes. Let Dr Poswal deny it, I don't think he will comment though, just like before when I griped about how Poswal plagiarized from Dr Rassman and Dr Bernstein.

I never said Poswal tells EVERY patient they have to post their pics or 'no dice'. If someone wants to name themselves, then they will come forward, if not it's no skin off my @ss. I know what I know, I'm comfortable with that. If you don't think I know what I'm talking about, that's okay.

Dear Arfy,
I do not know the reason behind your statements.
Allow me to assure you that we do not make it a requirement for patients to post about us.
I do not know how making it a requirement will help us in any way.

You imply that we operate on a patient and then we somehow ensure that he will post about his experience.
I suppose even the President would not be so powerful.

Regards,
Dr.A

Dear Arty

I am one of the patients of Dr A from 18th/02/05 . I see and read this site every day from early last year but I think I posted 2 or 3 times or moer I don't remember but I know what's going on with every one in this site and I will be reading it for a long time .
Dr A never mention to me about writing about my experience in the web I do it because we need to help each other and inform every one our good and bad experience .
I thank Dr A and any other Dr for informing us about there experience and there work .

Afy, that is the dumbest thing I have heard. Just ask yourself, how is Dr. A going to enforce that ? What is Dr. A going to do if his patients refuse to post, take the grafts back from the patient's head ?

Okay, I guess I didn't explain it very well.

The deal is that Dr Poswal gets permission to post a certain patient's pics, or "no surgery".

Some patients do not want to post their pics, or have their doctor post their pics. No doctor can post the patient's pics without permisssion.

Now will Dr A deny that he required an okay to post the pics online, as a condition for operating on a patient?

I am afraid you are wrong and partly misinformed Arfy.

It is our clinic policy not to disclose the identity of the patient.
We do show pictures, which may help educate the forum readers without disclosing the true identity of the patient.

The case you refer to is of a well known forum poster who had a particular condition - He had already got repair procedure from some other doctor. He wanted to get the remainder of the repair done by our clinic BUT wanted to give the credit of the complete repair to the previous doctor.

We thought this would be unfair and misleading and refused to take up the case.

"We do not operate only for money. We prefer to take up the most difficult repair cases so that their case details can help educate other patients. We feel that since the previous doctor has done so much work on the patient, it would be fair to allow him to finish the job".

I think that was the gist of what we advised the person.
We stand by our work.
We do NOT require people to post for us.(something that no HT clinic can or should enforce, in our opinion).

If a person wants to come to us for a procedure, let him come in a straightforward way.

I respect that poster for all that he has gone through and the tremendous help he has been to many people suffering from hairloss.
But I disagree with his approach towards us as well as towards his previous doctor.

I hope this may help clear things.

Arfy,
Did Poswal himself relay this to you? If not, the information you "heard" must be deemed heresay until proven otherwise. With all due respect as an educated patient and consumer advocate, third party information should not be allegated before fact revelations.


Ciao!
