  1. Dear Bill, Pat and Melvin, “However, we have put up with it because you do provide some sound advice and you haven’t blatantly broken any rules.” Bill the “publisher”, May 21st, 2019 https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/54103-hw-hattingen-konior-feriduni-devroye-or-bisanga-for-fut/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-509774 I’d like to take this moment to express my sincere appreciation for the “tolerance” I’ve received over the past fifteen years and over 7000 posts. The sheer strength it has taken to “tolerate” me for such a long time is nothing less than monumental. You should really pat yourselves on the back for such an achievement. I admit, reading my posts where I comment and encourage patients that have gone to doctors that I have never worked with, giving advice to posters that I have never had any personal contact with, and with no inclination of engaging with on any professional level, and assisting your members with all manner of problems based on my experience(s) in the hair transplant field as a profession, must have been absolute torture for you. The poison that you describe as having come from my participation in a thread where I was personally attacked for zero legitimate reasons is also evidence of your strength and wisdom as you clearly know something that I do not. But whom am I to question such greatness? Thank you, sincerely, for tolerating my presence. To all of the great HTN members, I’m sorry it has come to this. In case some of you are wondering what this is about, I wrote an article for a popular men’s blog that has gone viral throughout the English speaking world and in this article I outline twenty of the top hair restoration surgeons worldwide. I was then attacked, without provocation by an HTN member doctor for the sole reason of his exclusion from the article, even though I was very clear in that the list was not to be considered exhaustive or complete. The doctor saw fit to delete his posts and I in turn was happy to delete my comments back to him. No harm, no foul. However, when I questioned the additional edits by HTN moderators which included additional post deletions by members which were quoting the doctor, and comments that were left to defend me, I made a comment about the selective editing that had occurred. Ironically, one post remains by Melvin, the “co-moderator” which supports the doctors attack on me; “I don’t think that Dr. … said anything bad, in fact most of what he said is true.” My comment stands; “Some very interesting/selective editing on this topic.... “ If it has not become obvious as this point, I think that the target upon my back is getting to be a tad heavy as I do not possess the “physical and mental fortitude” that Bill obviously has that has allowed him to tolerate me for the past fifteen years. So I would like to close by saying that I have appreciated all of your comments and support through the years and I have been so blessed with watching so many of you find the follicular salvation you have been seeking. For that, my time here has been massively rewarding. With the comment made by Bill where he clearly states I’ve been helpful and haven’t broken any rules (not “blatantly” but otherwise?) it is more clear than ever that for those of you that have garnered enough knowledge to the point that you know what you’re talking about, you’re a threat to the status quo if you question those that would seek to control what you see and hear. I wish for my account to be closed and I wish you all the very best for the future. Thanks for everything. Moderators deleting or modifying this post in five, four, three… Regards Spencer ( Spex )
  2. Hey - Check out Dr. Verona in New port Beach. varonahairrestoration.com Regards Spex
  3. Dr Wong and Dr Cooley are excellent caring surgeons with zero ego - and I'm sure they'll find time to assist you with a phone or Skype call. Ideally try meet them both in person if possible. Regards Spex
  4. Go see Dr Bhatti for unbiased advise and ethical guidance with no hard sell. If not already get on medical therapy to prevent further loss and stabilise your situ and potentially improve it. Regards spex spexhair.com
  5. You look fine man. Try my stress on it and fixate. go live your life and get off the forums ! Regards spex spexhair.com
  6. Congrats ! Dr Bhatti is a fantastic caring surgeon. Regards Spex
  7. Great stuff -continue to grow well as7 months is only part of the way! Regards Spex Spexhair.com
  8. If not on medical therapy then press hold on surgery and consider getting your situation stabilised asap for minimum of 12 months and then see what situ is. It may well enable you to AVOID surgery altogether.😎 SURGERY IS A LAST RESORT ! Regards Spex
  9. Careful posting lists ..... Might want to pop on there its your opinion 😉 All good surgeons and you know what is great - is to ultimately provide patients options and enable them to do their own due diligence and in my opinion it's vital patients meet drs in person and get a real feel for them rather than speaking to a sales man. I really like Dr. Varona in Newport Beach. I have no involvement with him or compensated in any way. Go figure that one out. 😊 Regards Spex
  10. Looking forward to the trip and here to help along the way in anyway I can. Regards Spex
  11. In my opinion it's a whorl. 😎 Regards Spex

  14. Melvin, How many HW FUE patients in person have you personally seen ? Regards spex
  15. Hi there, Welcome. Dr Rahal is an excellent choice too so might be worth discussing your previous case to. Regarding your questions about other surgeons. You are pretty much looking at the Harlem Globe Trotters there and ALL excellent surgeons who've proven to be very consistent with FUT ands FUE. Try meet with as many as you can in person or speak to them via spoke etc and get a feel for them. I know a few of the personal and they are very caring, skilful ethical surgeons. Good luck and let us know how you get on. Regards SPEX
