Tonight I watched the ultimate in hypocrisy watching Dr. Daniel Danyo promote his no shave FUE on an internet radio program hosted by someone, who calls himself a consumer advocate. In this segment, Dr. Danyo stated that the non-shaven FUE procedure had been out for about four and one-half years, which is a complete fabrication. The non-shaven FUE procedure began in 2003 when I invented it. Dr. Danyo went on to say that he is promoting his practice as the only clinic dedicating itself to the no-shave FUE procedure. His claims are ridiculous because for almost ten years I have stated that the non-shaven FUE procedure is the procedure of the future. I have taught this method to numerous doctors all over the world beginning in 2008, and I wrote the definitive non-shaven FUE paper on non-shaven FUE in 2015. Patients from all over the world come to me for the non-shaven FUE procedure and I have performed more non-shaven FUE procedures than any doctor in the world. Dr. Danyo has nearly no results on his website. That’s not a good sign. Why would anyone recommend a physician with almost no results on his website? I guess money. Dr. Danyo certainly has zero no-shave results on his website. Dr. Danyo can’t even give credit to me for allowing him to watch my surgery and give him advice. Listening to his tales of how he performs FUE, I certainly would not recommend anyone go to him anytime soon because Dr. Danyo simply does not have the experience. When a physician grandstands his skills despite a lack of results, it’s a terrible sign. He may be good in time, but for now, he is beginning his practice.
This program underscores the problems related to individuals, who claim to be patient advocates, patient mentors, consumer advocates, and the like. All of these people promote only the physicians, who pay them to support them. These advocates also fail to elicit the truth and fail to correct false information. I also find it hypocritical that these so called advocates scare patients to death with concerns about going to any physician the advocates do not recommend. Some of the least desirable people a patient can go to are the physicians these advocates support.
Dr. Danyo can change the name of non-shaven FUE to the no shave FUE procedure, but this does not modify the history. Nor does a name change give him any more experience than he has in reality.
We can’t listen to these advocates, mentors or reccomendation sites. The information is rubbish and meant to promote only those physicians, who pay them to promote them.
