Hi there, I would just like to advise everyone that may be HIV+ that the clinic ASMED in Istanbul/Turkey has flat out refused to do a FUE procedure based ONLY on my HIV status. As most of you surely know this is illegal in most European countries and the USA. I totally understand that the law in Turkey is not the same as in Western countries however it tells alot about the medical knowledge of their medical staff. I dont think i need to educate anyone on HIV, specially not a supposed doctor. So for all HIV positive guys and gals out there, avoid this clinic. And everyone else i would avoid it too because they clearly lack medical knowledge. Having say that, I would like to know why is this clinic being recommended on this network as clearly they are not qualified, and as i read in another thread it was said that all clinics here would follow the Western protocol of no discrimination based on HIV status which is ILLEGAL in most western countries. Thanks for your time. J.
