Dr Eileen Tan

I'm thinking of going to her.

But i need your help.

How's your experience with her?

Is she a patient doctor who listens to patient's concerns?

Does she do a good job?

Any botched jobs?

I did a hair transplant with Dr Sundarasen many years ago. I really really regret it. He never told me i needed a few sessions. I didn't have the money at that time to pay for a few sessions. I only knew after my first session. I was very unhappy that he "lured" me into it. Now living with the unsightly effects of a half-completed hair transplant.

Is Dr Eileen Tan more ethical? Let's share to help other would-be patients. The more we share, the less tempted the unethical doctors will dare to try funny things and make us suffer. :(

Sorry to hear the ordeal you have gone through. I have consulted Dr Eileen Tan for my hair problem. I was told it is male pattern hair loss. She walked me through various treatment methods, including hair transplant. However, she suggested to start with propecia as hair transplant is the last defence for the hair loss. She even warned me of the potential side effect of taking propecia, which could result in temporary impotent for some people. She did mention a few sessions of transplants are required, depending on the seriousness of the problem. I eventually chose to take propecia as it is cheaper and now my hairs are growing and my manhood is not suffering as a result of taking the drug. May be you can consult her before you take the next course of action.

hey thanks. Is she generally a caring doctor who puts patient welfare before her own profits? I've had enough of doctors who care more for money than for my happiness. :(

My advice is you have to go in with an open mind as interpretation of the same sentence could be very different from one to another. Ultimately, the bottom line is to get the problem solved. You have to ask the right questions and judge yourself whether your concerns are properly addressed. Besides, you must be comfortable with the doctor whom you think is going to perform procedure on you. Else, who is going to help you solve the problem if there is any complication? I don't believe if a doctor tells me there is no complication risk for a surgery.

Hi,

I have recently accompanied my brother to consult Dr Eileen Tan. She recommened a joint approach of having a hair transplant as well as going on oral medication. But hair transplant is indeed a costly treatment method. I would like to ask Guest if you are satisfied with your current state of the hair since you mentioned that you experienced hair regrowth after taking propecia i.e. you don't think hair transplant is a need for you anymore? By the way, what is your monthly expenditure on propecia since you have to consume it on a long term basis. Appreciate if you could share with me your experience. Thanks

It is probably necessary to do it more than once depending on amount of hair loss and most likely once is insufficient to give you a full hair effect. There are also specialists available overseas if cost is a major concern that you might like to check out like in BKK.
