View Full Version : Hasson & Wong patient image used on another clinic's website

I got a call a few minutes ago from a person that wanted to tell me about a patient of ours on another clinic's website. Looks like a Dr. Nikola Samac in Toronto is using an image of Bobman on their hair transplant patient results section...


Our webmaster called him today to inform him of this issue and his response was "impossible". Now, this is not a case of the image being used as a temporary placeholder till the site is complete because we apparently contacted them six months ago to no avail so the site is apparently complete as is. I say this because this is a common excuse that we get when we find situations like this.

It looks like there are a few other patients that I recognize from other clinics as well, I just don't remember which so if any of you recognize the other patients on the website call the clinic that the patient really went to so they can be made aware of this issue.

Funny story, btw. The person that called me today to tell me about this issue told me he was in the Middle East a couple of years ago and saw a picture of one of our patients on a billboard or a very large poster while he was riding around in a taxi!! Unfortunately he said he missed the name and number:(

They have also stolen an image montage off my site, used on that same page you linked to. The woman being displayed is actually a girl named Julie who sent me those photos individually and I placed them in a montage like that. She is wearing a Reprieve hair system:


Unfortunately, that little trio of photos has been lifted off my site more times than is possible to count, it's horrible. :(:(:(

If they steal one set of photos, it's probably safe to assume that all of them are lifted from somewhere. Especially in the case of products like that herbal h which almost certainly do nothing.
