Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat (aka Dr. Tony Mangubat, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers, used to be known as Southcenter Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa ) is INCOMPETENT\r\nThis is a NON-COMMERCIAL posting/website. Any statements I make below are my own opinion.\r\n\r\nTo read PROOF of Dr. E Antonio Mangubats (aka Dr Tony Mangubats) INCOMPETENCE, please follow these links:\r\n\r\nhttp://sites.google.com/site/dreantoniomangubatincompetent/\r\n\r\nhttp://arlington45678.angelfire.com\r\n\r\nDr. Mangubat was a surgeon with Puig Medical Group (PMG) from 1989 1996. Follow this link for the truth about PMG:\r\n\r\nhttp://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/94book.html\r\n\r\nOR keep reading below.\r\n\r\nAs described below, Dr. Mangubat was a FULL PARTICIPANT in PMGs incompetent, unethical, and illegal conduct that is a COMPETE DISGRACE to the medical profession. Dr. Tony Mangubats (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) and Dr. Carlos J. Puigs licenses to practice medicine should have been REVOKED a LONG TIME AGO!!!\r\n\r\nI posted online my HORRIBLE experience as a hair transplant patient of Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat (aka Dr. Tony Mangubat, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers) in the mid 1990s (see above or link: http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/antonio-mangubat-hair-transplant-doctor-c251385.html ). Dr. Mangubat denied my claims and suggested that I was unfairly damaging his reputation. I will now present PROOF of Dr. Tony Mangubats sheer incompetence and his unethical, deceptive, and illegal conduct.\r\n\r\nAccording to Dr. Tony Mangubats OWN resume posted on his website (link: http://www.labelleviecosmetic.com/mangubat.shtml ), he was a cosmetic surgeon for Puig Medical Group (PMG, aka Cleveland Hair Centers) from 1989 1996. From Dr. Mangubats official resume, Professional Affiliations section:\r\nPhysician/Surgeon, Puig Medical Group, Chicago, IL, Washington, DC 1989-1996\r\n\r\nI have also posted at the bottom of this webpage links to pgs 1 3 of Dr. Tony Mangubats (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat, ) resume as HE posted it online on HIS website, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers, on 12/5/2010.\r\nAs described in elaborate detail by another VICTIM of PMG, PMG and its doctors like Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) and his former boss at PMG Dr. Carlos J. Puig were engaged in INCOMPETENT, UNETHICAL, and ILLEGAL conduct and used high pressure sales and false advertising to lure unsuspecting clients to become their patients. Follow this link for details:\r\n\r\nhttp://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/94book.html\r\n\r\nhttp://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/lies.html\r\n\r\nScreenshots of the same content of the above are posted in this link:\r\n\r\nhttp://picasaweb.google.com/117812991164449030691/DrCarlosPuigDrEAntonioMangubat#\r\n\r\nhttp://picasaweb.google.com/117812991164449030691/PuigMediGrpIllegalFalseAdvertising#\r\n\r\nThis person (I dont know who he is so I will call him Mr. X) was kind enough to post scanned copies of PMG 1994 totally deceptive, false, and fraudulent marketing/sales letters and brochure that used completely unethical high pressure sales tactics. PLEASE NOTE: Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers) worked for PMG from 1989 to 1996, and so he CANNOT deny that he was a member of PMGs medical team when this 1994 marketing brochure and cover letter were sent to potential clients, including me.\r\n\r\nIn mid 1990s, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) and PMG promised to cure my premature baldness in my 20s and give me a full head of hair [these words are an exact quote of a complete LIE from the PMG cover letter, see below] after the hair transplants and Brandy scalp reduction surgeries. Instead, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) left my head COMPLETELY SCARRED AND DISFIGURED with only a few hairs growing that was of VERY LITTLE, if any, cosmetic significance!!! He basically left me looking like a FREAK!! I have had AT LEAST 10 reconstructive cosmetic surgeries to reverse what Dr. Tony Mangubat did to me, and to look at least somewhat normal and not like a FREAK!!\r\n\r\nI became a patient of PMG in the mid 1990s and I received the SAME 1994 brochure and letters that Mr. X posted on his website with the SAME LIES, HARD SELL & FALSE ADVERTISING and DECEPTIVE LANGUAGE. Please follow the link below for the cover letter I received from Puig Medical Groups (PMG) in 1994:\r\nLINKS [for snapfish website, please just register to access link]:\r\n\r\nhttps://picasaweb.google.com/110468794402364392954/LiesFalseAdvertisingPuigMedicalGroup#5581905690202698738\r\n\r\nhttp://www3.snapfish.co.uk/snapfishuk/slideshow/AlbumID=11174548010/PictureID=261604240010/a=7811008011_7590632010/\r\n\r\nThe letter in the above link is Puig Medical Groups (PMG) 1994 Cover letter that I received when I inquired about getting hair transplants done with PMG. This letter is FILLED with LIES, HARD SELL TACTICS & FALSE ADVERTISING and DECEPTIVE LANGUAGE.\r\n\r\nThe most BLATANT and COMPLETELY 100% LIE is when in the cover letter, PMG promised the potential client that PMGs hair transplants will result in a full head of hair [2nd line of 2nd para of letter] that is \\\"virtually non-detectible.\\\" [5th bullet in letter] No HALF-competent hair transplant doctor would ever say this because of the limited amount of donor hair in the back of the head of a typical hairloss patient, such as me. But PMG was perfectly willing to say this to MAXIMIZE its sales and LURE unsuspecting clients into selecting PMG instead of one of its competitors.\r\n\r\nIf Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) & Dr. Carlos J. Puig were HALF-honest with their patients, they would have NEVER claimed to restore a full head of hair in the PMGs cover letter to me and other potential clients!!\r\n\r\nPlease follow links below for the cover page & page 1 from PMG\\\\s 1994 brochure that is FILLED WITH EXTREMELY MISLEADING STATEMENTS & LIES:\r\nLINKS [for snapfish website, please just register to access link]:\r\n\r\nhttps://picasaweb.google.com/110468794402364392954/LiesFalseAdvertisingPuigMedicalGroup#5581905593757512962\r\n\r\nhttp://www3.snapfish.co.uk/snapfishuk/slideshow/AlbumID=11174202010/PictureID=261596041010/a=7811008011_7590632010/\r\n\r\nhttps://picasaweb.google.com/110468794402364392954/LiesFalseAdvertisingPuigMedicalGroup#5581905644141224482\r\n\r\nhttp://www3.snapfish.co.uk/snapfishuk/slideshow/AlbumID=11174774010/PictureID=261596083010/a=7811008011_7590632010/\r\n\r\nThe above links are to the Cover Page, & Pages 1 of Puig Medical Groups 1994 marketing brochure is FILLED with MISLEADING STATEMENTS, UNETHICAL HARD SELL tactics, and OUTRIGHT LIES.\r\n\r\n- E.g. OUTRIGHT LIES: Advances in surgical techniques now allow for complete and permanent correction of this cosmetic imperfection. [Page 1 of PMG booklet] A COMPLETE LIE: even in 2012, advances in surgical techniques do NOT allow for a complete correction of baldness (i.e. a full head of hair as claimed by PMG) for most hairloss patients. The key challenge is limited donor hair in the back of the head, and any HALF-competent, ethical doctor would know this and never make this claim (i.e. this 100% LIE) of complete correction made by PMG.\r\n- E.g. of HARD SELL tactics: Let\\\\s face it: baldness suggests premature aging. [Page 1 of PMG booklet]. Male pattern baldness is due to a person having genes programmed to result in hairloss, and thats it; baldness has NOTHING to do with premature aging!!\r\n\r\nPlease follow link below for page 7 of the 1994 booklet that contains LIES based on what is OMITTED from the text.\r\nLINKS [for snapfish website, please just register to access link]:\r\n\r\nhttps://picasaweb.google.com/110468794402364392954/LiesFalseAdvertisingPuigMedicalGroup#5581905613132165010\r\n\r\nhttp://www3.snapfish.co.uk/snapfishuk/slideshow/AlbumID=11174776010/PictureID=261596120010/a=7811008011_7590632010/\r\n\r\n-Another E.g. of OUTRIGHT LIES, Bald Area Reduction
can eliminate a major portion of the bald area. [Page 7 of PMGs 1994 booklet] This is a LIE because of what is OMITTED from this claim. Bald area reduction is MAJOR surgery that leaves the head with LARGE SCARS around the scalp area that is removed. In my case, Dr. Tony Mangubat performed a few Brandy scalp reduction procedures that left a HUGE horse-shoe shaped 8+ inch long and ½ inch thick SCAR from one TEMPLE to the CROWN and back down to the other TEMPLE on my head!! More info on scalp reduction surgeries here: http://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/scalp.html (see below for LAWSUIT in 1996 regarding Brandy scalp surgeries, also see this 1996 news article:\r\nhttp://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352 )\r\n\r\nBut PMG in its marketing brochure makes NO MENTION of any scarring!!! Talk about doctors (PMG doctors like Dr. Carlos J. Puig & Dr. Tony Mangubat) who leave out CRITICAL info needed for a patient to make an informed decision about the major surgery!!!\r\n\r\nPlease follow link below for an insert page from the 1994 PMG booklet that has more LIES!!\r\nLINKS [for snapfish website, please just register to access link]:\r\n\r\nhttps://picasaweb.google.com/110468794402364392954/LiesFalseAdvertisingPuigMedicalGroup#5581905688817259394\r\n\r\nhttp://www3.snapfish.co.uk/snapfishuk/slideshow/AlbumID=11174683010/PictureID=261599142010/a=7811008011_7590632010/\r\n\r\n- E.g. of Misleading statement/LIE: The most natural hairline that is virtually undetectable...Cosmetically incredible
.You will look and feel the way you hoped to AGAIN!! [Insert page in link above of PMG booklet] In the case of most patients, including me, another COMPLETE LIE. My hairline was anything BUT natural after Dr. Mangubat\\\\s procedures with a few hairs growing in different parts of the hairline and the majority of the front hairline with no hair at all!! With the LIMITED amount of donor hair and hairloss on the front and crown in many patients, there is NO WAY there would be enough donor hair for hair transplants to result in a \\\"full head of hair\\\" with a \\\"virtually undetectable\\\" hairline!!! And yet, PMG was perfectly willing to promise \\\"you will look and feel the way you hoped to AGAIN!!\\\"\r\n\r\nSo, as Mr. X asked in his review of PMG, WHY is the Puig Medical Group creating this false premise in the minds of potential patients? Because building FALSE HOPES in patients is good for BOOSTING SALES. Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) was part of the team at PMG that ONLY cared about SALES, and patients welfare was NOT a main concern. That is why doctors at PMG (e.g. Dr. Tony Mangubat & Dr. Carlos J. Puig) were willing to say ANYTHING, EVEN OUTRIGHT LIES, to ensure that the potential client would select PMG, and not one of its competitors, for hair transplants.\r\n\r\nPlease follow link below for page 1 of Dr. Tony Mangubats (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) resume in the mid-1990s that I received from PMG:\r\nLINKS [for snapfish website, please just register to access link]:\r\n\r\nhttps://picasaweb.google.com/110468794402364392954/DrEAntonioMangubatMid1990sResume#5581909450401650594\r\n\r\nhttp://www3.snapfish.co.uk/snapfishuk/slideshow/AlbumID=11172235010/PictureID=261522621010/a=7811008011_7590632010/\r\n\r\nAbove link is to Page 1 of Dr. Tony Mangubats (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) mid-1990s resume that I received from Puig Medical Group in 1994. Please note that on Page 1, the part underlined in red clearly shows that Dr. Tony Mangubat was a doctor with Puig Medical Group from 1989 until the date of the resume (i.e. mid-1990s). So Dr. Mangubat cannot deny that he was a doctor with PMG in the mid-1990s, even if he may want to now!!\r\n\r\nPlease follow link below for Page 2 of Dr. Mangubats 1994 resume while at PMG. Please note the text at the bottom [underlined in red], which CLEARLY shows that Dr. Mangubat performed Brandy-style scalp surgeries that left me SCARRED and DISFIGURED. Brandy refers to Dr. Dominic Brandy, who was in 1996 SUED and PAID damages for performing such scalp reduction procedures [again link to a news article about this: http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352\r\n\r\n\r\nLINKS to page 2 of 1994 resume [for snapfish website, please just register to access link]:\r\n\r\nhttps://picasaweb.google.com/110468794402364392954/DrEAntonioMangubatMid1990sResume#5581909452870011042\r\n\r\nhttp://www3.snapfish.co.uk/snapfishuk/slideshow/AlbumID=11174395010/PictureID=261581209010/a=7811008011_7590632010/\r\n\r\nAbove link is to Page 2 of Dr. Tony Mangubats (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) mid-1990s resume that I received from Puig Medical Group. Please note that at the bottom of page 2, it clearly says [underlined in red] that Dr. Mangubat performed 71 Modified Brandy Flaps, and he did a few \\\"Brady\\\" scalp reduction procedures on me. As I just mentioned, Brandy refers to Dr. Dominic Brandy, who was in 1996 SUED and PAID damages for performing such scalp reduction procedures; here again is a link to a news article about this:\r\n\r\nhttp://community.seattletimes.nwsource.com/archive/?date=19960915&slug=2349352\r\n\r\nNO ONE has to just rely on my review to decide that Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat) and Dr. Carlos J. Puig are COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT. Anyone can just read the 1994 cover letters & marketing brochures of Puig Medical Group itself to come to your own conclusions.\r\n\r\n(again available here:\r\n\r\nhttp://www.angelfire.com/indie/hairtransplant/94book.html\r\nand here:\r\n\r\nhttp://picasaweb.google.com/117812991164449030691/DrCarlosPuigDrEAntonioMangubat# )\r\n\r\n\r\nWhen you read these documents, youll see for yourself the TOTALLY deceptive practices, false advertising, and outright LIES that PMGs doctors engaged in to lure unsuspecting clients.\r\n\r\nLet me STRESS again, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) himself on his online resume PROUDLY says that he worked as a cosmetic surgeon at PMG from 1989 1996, and he therefore was a FULL PARTICIPANT in PMGs incompetent, unethical, and illegal conduct that is a COMPETE DISGRACE to the medical profession. I know this FIRSTHAND because of what Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) did to me, i.e. promised me a full head of hair, and left me SCARRED and DISFIGURED!!\r\n\r\nIf Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) argues that he never saw or participated in any deceptive practices and/or GROSSLY OVER-PROMISING on the results to potential clients, you have to believe that he NEVER read any of PMGs marketing literature or letter or discussed or participated in surgeries or consultations with clients during his ENTIRE SEVEN year stint as a Physician/Surgeon at PMGthis is a COMPLETELY LAUGHABLE argument!!!\r\n\r\n\r\nPlease note that I am not the author of Mr. Xs angelfire website on PMG, but I completely agree with what this person Mr. X says. This person is another totally INNOCENT VICTIM of PMG and its INCOMPETENT FRAUD doctors (e.g. Dr. Carlos J. Puig & Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka E. Antonia Mangubat). Dr. Tony Mangubats (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) and Dr. Carlos J. Puigs licenses to practice medicine should have been REVOKED a LONG TIME AGO!!!\r\n\r\n\r\nIf after reading this posting, Dr. Tony Mangubat (aka Dr. E. Antonio Mangubat ) decides to delete the reference to Puig Medical Group from his official resume on his website, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers, the 1st question you MUST ask him just exactly where did he work from 1989 1996 and did he ever work for Puig Medical Group ??!!\r\n\r\n\r\nPlease follow links below for screenshots of the 1st 3 pages of Dr. Tony Mangubat\\\\s (aka Dr. E Antonio Mangubat) resume as HE POSTED it online on HIS website on 12/5/2010, LA BELLE VIE Cosmetic Surgery Centers (used to be known as Southcenter Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa):\r\nhttp://www.labelleviecosmetic.com/mangubat.shtml .
