  1. I decided to pin this topic. Frankly, this thread needs to be seen. It can stop unrealistic patients from having a procedure and being disappointed, even help some patients change their outlook and perception.
  2. Wow you’re taking my comments completely side ways. My only affiliation with Dr. Diep is that he’s my surgeon. You’re entitled to be upset. I meant I’m sorry that you’re not satisfied, not like you should be happy. In my opinion, look at your pictures from month 6 to now. It’s a clear improvement. That said, looks like you may have suffered massive shock loss that may have not grown back. Please send me a private message with your information so I can reach out to Dr. Diep for his input on your case. I’m in no way saying you should be happy or shouldn’t be unhappy I want to make that clear.
  3. Also, I’ve removed the yelp link, we don’t allow outside links. Please post your full review here. Frankly, we prefer our community read it without needing to click any links. You guys can see his progress here
  4. @thetown1003 Please send me a private message with your name and date of surgery so I can reach out to Dr. Diep, so he can respond. I remember your response. I recall you had some good improvements. But I'm sorry you're not happy. I think it's a big stretch calling Dr. Diep a butcher, because you don't have the expected yield.
  5. Looks like a home-run to me man, I agree, if you can style your hair and get away with looking like that why even bother adding more density. You may need those grafts for the crown some day. I think the single most important thing that isn't mentioned enough is the NATURALNESS! We get caught up in density, and it's definitely important, but how natural the hairline looks lis equally if not more important and your hairline looks so freakin natural it's quite amazing.
  6. Guys, I’ve been alerted by another Bhatti patient a legitimate one who posts here all the time, and is not affiliated that he received two receipts. This patient said he wasn’t provided any, why he wouldn’t ask for one I don’t know. I’ve also been provided an email exchange that shows the patient was clearly unhappy at some of the concerns he shared, but also about the fact that he has to pay for his hotel stay, which he claims was part of their deal. Based on Bhatti’s reply he didn’t apologize for the patient’s unhappiness with waiting etc. This might’ve solved the issues, but I honestly feel OP was mad he had to pay for his hotel stay. Frankly, this has been a circus that has taken hours of my time trying to make this community a better place for patients and physicians. All of this for a few hundred dollars seems ludicrous, but I think Dr. Bhatti could’ve handled this a lot better I will be speaking with him privately. At this point, this sideshow has gone on long enough and I’ve wasted enough time on this. I’m locking it so the community sees my response and conclusion. If at some point I’m provided with inarguable facts and evidence as opposed to “hearsay” I will re-open the thread. Now lets focus back on what’s important RESULTS!
  7. Thank you Dr. Bhatti, If proven to be true with evidence. This will not be tolerated at all. I’ve made it crystal clear to our community that we will not stand for any form of extortion.
  8. Where did he say you did not pay for the deposit? I re-read his statements and don’t see it. As far as I’m aware, he states you have a pending balance that you want waived and is the reason why you’ve posted this topic. @Dr Tejinder Bhatti Do you have any emails or documentation discussing the unpaid balance?
  9. This seems odd, was there a promise to pay? How was he able to leave without fully paying? @Lennney were you given a receipt? This is a big accusation and I agree if proven false this is no doubt slander.
  10. Here’s what I have gathered so far, there was a disagreement with the “discount” the patient was upset at having to pay a deposit (I had to pay one and I’d be surprised if a surgeon didn’t). Talking about the age of the nurses really has no significance and is a moot point IMO. The sedative issue, perhaps strikes more since OP is a doctor. Me personally I didn’t really question my surgeon in regards to the pills I was taking. But maybe I should idk. Thus far, Dr. Bhatti has claimed there’s been a lack of payment and no proof of payment can be produced. This is all very muddled and honestly a lot of mud slinging for no real reason. This is not within the normal scope of what we deal with here. In my opinion, finances matters very little when it comes to a precious donor.
  11. We want to keep a fair and objective forum. If you have any information of blackmail please send it to me in private message. We do not tolerate any form of extortion or blackmail.
  12. @Dr Tejinder Bhatti Dr. Bhatti, if you’re going to post emails, please remove personal information from the posts. While, these allegations have been made public, we don’t need to know his personal information to see the responses.
  13. @Drhairloss Does it really matter if the results are good? I mean isn’t worse to have a bad result and poor growth? Like I said money comes and goes but grafts don’t.
