BEWARE – For reasons described below, Puig Medical Group’s (PMG’s) Loren Comitor, Ron Goldovich [aka Ronald T. Goldovich], Carlos J.
Puig, and E. Antonio Mangubat [aka Tony Mangubat] are depraved individuals with no morals or ethics and engaged in FRAUD, FALSE-ADVERTISING, AND BLATANTLY UNETHICAL CONDUCT, see PROOF in these Google websites: https://sites.google.com/site/pmghair/ https://sites.google.com/site/pmgincompetent/ https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8gEYzNAQ1RHd094QUp5aGoyd0E/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8gEYzNAQ1RHSmtvOXZiTFlld0E/view?usp=sharing https://sites.google.com/site/puigmedicalgroup https://sites.google.com/site/tonymangubatisincompetent/ Loren Comitor was one of the main individuals featured in PMG’s 1994 marketing brochure that was full of FRAUDULENT CLAIMS, FALSE ADVERTISING, and OUTRIGHT LIES. Ron Goldovich [aka Ronald T. Goldovich] was a “Regional Manager” for PMG, who wrote highly misleading letters containing FRAUDULENT CLAIMS & FALSE ADVERTISING to potential PMG clients/patients, claims like PMG’s cosmetic surgery procedures would result in a “full head of hear” and PMG had the “ability to do the transplant so it is virtually non-detectible”.
Carlos Puig was Medical Director of PMG and E. Antonio Mangubat was Physician/Surgeon with PMG. Mangubat & Puig performed disfiguring surgeries on me that left me SCARRED and DISFIGURED. I was one of the many victims who were left scarred and disfigured by PMG doctors like Puig & Mangubat.
I was also one of the many victims who were grossly misled and lied to by PMG’s 1994 cover letter & marketing brochure described below. I have found several other victims who created their own websites documenting their HORRIBLE experiences as a patient of PMG. See example in this link: [WARNING: GRAPHIC images in this link]: http://hairtransplantrepair.blogspot.com/ Examples of false claims and deceptive statements found in the 1994 cover letter & brochure: - Suggesting that hair transplants can result in a "full head of hair", which is physically impossible. - That PMG’s crude “line grafting” method would result in transplants that were “virtually non-detectible”.
- That "most men have an overabundance" of donor supply. - That hair transplant patients will be able to style their hair almost any way that they want to. - That a disfiguring scalp reduction surgery is a "minor procedure" that will "give a more natural result." - Misleading the patient by not ever mentioning PMG’s disfiguring scalp reduction surgery would result in large scars on the scalp that the patient would have to live for the rest of his life. Again, Ron Goldovich was the author of PMG’s 1994 cover letter and Loren Comitor was featured in an insert page of the PMG brochure, see: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8gEYzNAQ1RHSmtvOXZiTFlld0E/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8gEYzNAQ1RHd094QUp5aGoyd0E/view?usp=sharing Ron Goldovich [Ronald T.
Goldovich] signed the PMG “cover letter” filled with FRAUDULENT and FALSE claims. E.g. of Misleading statement/LIE, the cover letter claimed: PMG procedures would result in a “full head of hair” and PMG had the “ability to transplants so it is virtually non-detectible”. In the case of most patients, including me, a COMPLETE LIE.
My hairline was anything BUT natural after PMG’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!! Instead I had a HUGE 8 inch long, 1/2 wide U-shaped SCAR on my scalp after Mangubat performed several scalp reduction surgeries….a result that was ANYTHING BUT NATURAL! 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! Also Comitor’s page talks about PMG’s hair transplants being “virtually undetectable”, “cosmetically incredible”, “dramatic”.
Comitor himself is quoted as saying “it’s a miracle…I’m so lucky….when doctors can do this unbelievable work”!! The amount of PURE HYPE in the cover letter and insert page is sickening, coming from a medical practice. Surgical techniques may evolve and change, but the definition of "undetectable" does not change over time. So WHY were Loren Comitor, Ron Goldovich [aka Ronald T.
Goldovich], Carlos Puig, and E. Antonio Mangubat [aka Tony Mangubat] creating this false premise in the minds of potential patients? Because building FALSE HOPES in patients is good for BOOSTING SALES. PMG’s doctors Dr.
Carlos J. Puig & Tony Mangubat & marketing consultants Loren Comitor & Ron Goldovich ONLY cared about SALES, and patient’s welfare was NOT a main concern. That is why these CON ARTISTS 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. For proof Ron Goldovich worked with Carlos Puig, just see Puig’s endorsement of Goldovich on his linkedin page https://www.linkedin.com/in/ron-goldovich-96718610 Puig writes: “I have worked with Ron for over 20 years.
He is a patient, calm administrator, who is very attentive to details, and a strong employee motivator. He has worked with me on several projects, including marketing hair restoration surgery, training technicians and physicians, and business development and office expansion planning. A man of immense integrity, he always has the patients/customers best interest at heart.” As noted above, Puig confirms Ron Goldovich worked with him “on several projects, including marketing hair restoration surgery”. BTW, Puig’s statement that Ron Goldovich is a “man of immense integrity” is COMPLETELY LAUGHABLE given what Ron Goldovich wrote and represented to PGM clients in PMG’s cover letter!

I have worked with him on no less than 10 or 12 big projects over the last 20 years….” Comitor’s linkedin page as of 9/23/2017 is also saved here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8gEYzNAQ1RHQy1ydnRERnNuSWc/view?usp=sharing Puig is also Comitor’s friend in Facebook, and Puig is listed as one of the doctors on Comitor’s most recent employer’s website, Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, see: https://www.lipodoc.com/about-us/meet-the-staff/ A copy of the lipodoc.com webpage as of September, 2017 is also saved here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8gEYzNAQ1RHSjQzenAyNnVZbTA/view?usp=sharing PMG’s 1994 cover letter and promotional brochure were filled with misleading and false statements that prevented patients from making an informed decision about a life-altering cosmetic surgery. PMG distributed this deceptive brochure to patients under the pretense of "educating" them. By deliberately misleading patients with promotional material, PMG put its own profits ahead of the well-being of their patients.
If Loren Comitor, Ron Goldovich [aka Ronald T. Goldovich], Carlos Puig, and E. Antonio Mangubat [aka Tony Mangubat] had an ounce of ethics in them, they wouldn’t have put so much HYPE in the cover letter, insert page or the brochure and totally lie and mislead patients about the results of the scalp reduction surgeries [e.g. no mention of huge SCARs] & hair transplants.
However, their primary motivation was GREED, sell surgeries at any cost, so they had no hesitation whatsoever to put as much HYPE as possible in the brochure. Another example of unethical conduct: on pg 8 of the brochure, it stated: "You know you have a problem or you wouldn't have requested this material". Here's Comitor, Goldovich, Puig, Mangubat & Puig Medical Group were stooping to humiliation to try to "close" on a sale!! Would a legitimate physician or an ethical marketing consultant try to tell a self-conscious patient that their hair loss is a "problem"?
OF COURSE NOT!! Maybe the balding men who don't get cosmetic surgery "don't know they have a problem"?? Again, there are numerous other examples of hype and lies that you can review here: https://sites.google.com/site/puigmedicalgroup Comitor, Goldovich, Puig, and Mangubat are DEPRAVED individuals with no morals or ethics and belong in a mental institution for depraved individuals. I am justified in saying this because they were a team that was perfectly willing to repeatedly lie to, totally mislead, and permanently disfigure many patients, including me, just for a few thousand dollars that PMG charged for each scalp-reduction surgery.
Loren Comitor, Ron Goldovich [aka Ronald T.
Goldovich], Carlos Puig, and E. Antonio Mangubat [aka Tony Mangubat’s] only motivation is GREED, and they are fully willing to lie, cheat, and ruin innocent people’s lives just to make money and support their lifestyles.
