Before I respond to M’s TOTALLY FALSE and BASELESS accusations about me,
- Ally, I agree with Mangubat (“M”) on one thing, that you should judge for yourself based on the FACTS and the CREDIBILITY of each person. FACTS don’t lie, so I URGE you if/when you see M that you DEMAND the FACTS, i.e. ask M the questions I listed in my previously posting: DEMAND that M show you before/after pics of Brandy scalp reduction procedures (and the pics better NOT be low resolution pics and/or w/ hair combed over the scars to conceal them). Once you see the horse-shoe shaped scars on the scalps of the scores of M’s victims, you’ll SEE FOR YOURSELF how M BUTCHERED many patients by doing these procedures, the same ones that DR. Brandy WAS SUED FOR in 1996!!
Ally, although my posting is long, please keep reading for the FACTS from each side. M attacks my credibility and says I’m “a hired character assassin”, and not his former patient, who is lying about him. Well, I will present FACTS to show who is lying and who is telling the truth as well as M’s total LACK of credibility.
First, to Mangubat, ANSWER this question: if the Brandy-scalp reduction procedures THAT YOU DON’T DENY performing were “the state of the art 15 years ago” as you put it, WHY WAS DR. DOMINIC BRANDY SUED AND PAID DAMANGES for performing these procedures in 1996????!!!! Yes, Brandy was sued in 1996, not 2010, so in the 1990s these procedures were only the work of TOTALLY INCOMPETENT DOCTORS like YOU!!!!
Given that the FACT is Dr. Brandy was sued, lost the suit, and paid damages of $400K, M’s assertion of “state of the art 15 years ago” is UTTERLY LUDICROUS AND PATENTLY FALSE!!!! M making such an assertion PROVES that M HAS ZERO CREDIBILITY!!!! These procedures were much closer to STATE of the SH*T!!!!
To Mangubat: I’m still waiting for a response from you as to why DR. BRANDY was sued and lost the suit for performing the supposedly “state of the art” procedures in 1996????!!!!
- Speaking of LYING and telling HALF-TRUTHS, M said he has “spent 23 years in practice studying and perfecting each procedure…” BUT he CONVENIENTLY FORGOT to mention that, of the 23 years, he spent many years as a hair transplant surgeon. Did he deny my claim about this? NO, OF COURSE NOT, yet he accuses me of slander! Also M has given NO EXPLANATION as to why performing hair transplants and scalp reduction surgeries should count as experience doing tummy-tucks??!! Ally, this gives you a good idea of who is the REAL LIAR here!!
Regarding credibility, let’s examine which side has FACTS and SOURCS to back up the FACTS, and which side has NO FACTS, just spurious allegations:
MY facts & sources to back them up:
FACT #1: Dr. Brandy was SUED in 1996 (not 2010 but about 15 years ago, same as M’s timeframe) for performing scalp reduction procedures. SOURCE: Business | Suit: Bad Hair Transplant Caused Suicide Attempt | Seattle Times Newspaper
FACT #2: Mangubat performed the same procedures pioneered by Brandy. SOURCE: 1996 WAHRS Meeting Review
FACT #3: Mangubat greatly praised the scalp reduction procedures, the same procedures that Brandy was SUED for and LOST the suit in 1996 (NOT 2010!), and which left me scarred and disfigured. SOURCE: Global Convocation on Hair Restoration Surgery - Monday
M claims that I misquoted him, but as I describe below, this is just another example of M having ZERO credibility (see below).
M claims I am a “hired character assassin which is common on internet today.” Does M have any FACTS to support this OUTRAGEOUS and FALSE claim??? NONE WHATSOEVER!!! M can’t even cite a news article that generally may support his claim of “which is common …”. Hence, Mangubat IS TRULY PATHETIC!!!!
With respect to M’s BASELESS allegation that I am a “hired character assassin”, LET ME BE CLEAR: In all my postings, I have never and will never represent anyone other than myself. Unlike M totally false and without any facts accusations, I have plenty of FACTS (YES FACTS!) to support my claims, including the articles WHICH I ALREADY provided links to above.
Also M says things that question my credibility, but if you examine his statements, does he deny any of my specific claims:
- Did M deny that Doctor Brandy was SUED and paid damages for performing such scalp reduction surgeries? NO, of course NOT!
- Did M deny performing Brandy type scalp reduction surgeries that leave a LARGE HORSE SHOW or V-shaped scar ALL OVER THE HEAD, from one temple to the crown and back to the other temple? NO, of course NOT!
- Did M deny that he praised the scalp reduction procedures that left many like me SCARRED and DISFIGURED??? NO, of course NOT!!!! M says that he was quoted out of context and "The actual paper is much longer". BUT LET’S BE CLEAR: I COPIED and PASTED M’s quote EXACTLY as it was presented on the regrowth.com website WITHOUT deleting or adding a single word, LINK: Global Convocation on Hair Restoration Surgery - Monday
For YEARS, M had the opportunity to correct the quotation on the regrowth website if M felt that he was misquoted, and M never did!! To even insinuate that I somehow misquoted M is PATENTLY FALSE AND A LIE!!! Given that for years M never complained to regrowth.com about a possible “out of context” quote, and only after a former patient uses the SAME quote WORD FOR WORD does M complain about being quoted out of context shows AGAIN that M has ABSOLUTELY ZERO CREDIBILITY!!!
More with respect to the M’s baseless claim that "the procedure you received was the state of the art 15 years ago" that is totally inconsistent w/ Brandy being SUED for the same procedures: LET ME BE CLEAR: IMMEDIATELY AFTER, i.e., less than 1 month after M left me with the HUGE HORSESHOE Shaped scar, I sought another opinion. THANK GOD I sought a second opinion and did not permit M to do more harm to my head. I consulted another surgeon, this time a competent one (unlike M), and he was ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIED by what M did and the horseshoe shaped scar on my head; his first reaction was: he exclaimed “Who did this to you???!!!”
NOTE that I consulted this surgeon SHORTLY after (within one month) of M’s last scalp surgery on me, and NOT years after. So M’s claim that what he did was "state of the art" IS PATENTLY FALSE!!! M has NO BASIS to argue that his techniques were "state of the art" at the time the surgeries were done!! The scalp reduction surgeries M did on me were much closer to STATE of the SH*T than state of the art, as confirmed by the opinions of the doctors I saw for a 2nd and 3rd opinion!!! Furthermore, as I already mentioned, Dr. Brandy was SUED in part for performing this type of scalp reduction over 10 years ago!!!
To Mangubat: I guess you can’t read English because you keep expecting me to contact you when I have stated several times I have no intention of being your patient again!! Let’s be clear about a one thing: I was BUTCHERED once by you as your patient. Therefore, I WILL NEVER BE YOUR PATIENT AGAIN!! Even if you were to offer your services for free, NEVER AGAIN!!!
Mangubat: Doctors like you may have thought that doing a horrible job on one patient is no big deal since you can just move on and try to do better with the next patient. Doctors like you may have also believed it is very unlikely that former patients will complain because it is very embarrassing for patients to publicly disclose the scars and disfiguration on their bodies. Well, I have news for you: thanks to the internet, former patients can both publicly disclose the horrible things that were done to them and at the same time protect their privacy and avoid humiliation in public. In other words, doctors like you grossly miscalculated! Welcome to the internet!!
I WILL post HONESTLY and COMPLETELY my HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE as Mangubat’s patient!!! Hopefully as many people as possible will read my experience, know that what M did to me was sheer INCOMPETENCE, and learn from it.
This will likely be my last response to Mangubat’s baseless accusations about me. Unless M actually bothers to answers the questions posed to him (e.g. why was Brandy sued for the brandy-scalp reduction procedures in 1996 (NOT 2010!) if this procedure was “state of art at the time”??), I see no reason why I need to respond to more of M’s BASELESS and “FACTLESS” LIES about me.
