2000 Fue Hair Transplant 32yo Asian Male - San Jose, CA

I found Dr.Diep on youtube. Like alot of people I liked the results from the video he posted. During that time I stared losing my hair. I started noticing my hair line is receding. I contacted the clinic and set a date for a consultation via Skype. I ask Dr.Diep is it too early for me to have a hair transplant because I am worry i will continue losing hair. He said it would be fine and he can do a second session when I start losing more hair. I now realize he was just saying that to reassure me so I will fly over for the transplant because how would he know if he can't really see my donor area. Mistake number 1. So I set a date and flew over to san jose. Before I flew over there is shave my head because he ask me to. Mistake number 2. I should have left it alone because a real caring Dr. Would want to see how you style your hair so he knows how he would draw your hairline. I get there and meet dr diep. He seems nice and seem to know what he's talking about. So he draw a my hairline. I told him it was to low and I think it was too aggressive. He told me it will be fine and that it looks good. I trusted him. Mistake number 3. So we start on the procedure. He give me some xanex which I thought was weird because I thought I be under some kind of sedation. He extract from my donor are while I see the technicians get ready. After that I fell in and out of sleep from the pill. I would wake up during my surgery. I woke to eat and realize this whole time the technicians was inserting my hair. I was really worried now because he did not tell me he was not perform the surgery. They finish in the evening time around 7pm. A total of 10hrs. I went back to the hotel and follow up with him the next day. I'm still in shock because dr diep was no where around to answer my questions. The next day I went there still no dr.diep. I was met by his receptionist who just look at my donor are and gave some cream and antibiotics and some instructions on how to treat my head after the transplant. I ask to speak to dr.diep and the told me he was busy with another patient. They said he will contact me. He never did. Well now it's November 2015. My transplant looks terrible. It dont look natural at all. All they did was insert a hairline that is too aggressive. I'm am continuing to lose my hair down the middle of my head to the back of my crown. So imagine somebody who has a front row of hair and going bald. I went to another dr recently and they said I don't have enough hair in the donor area for a transplant. So even if I shave my head I would look funny as hell with a row of hair in the front. Not only that the doner area look real noticeable with hair missing. Little white dots everywhere. I try contacting dr. Diep but all they say is to set a date which is always 3 or 4 months away. It seems like Dr diep use youtube as advertising to get people like me who don't know much and trust him because he's a doctor who specializes in asian hair transplant. He don't even do the transplant his technician does! I feel like I got screwed for 12000. On top of that my hair is screwed worst than to began with. I'm asian and I thought I could trust an Asian doctor. Boy was I wrong.
