I underwent hair transplant surgery at Dr arindam Sarkar's place on October 8th 2013. Prior to this I had consultation at wizderm clinic at manisquare mall. He diagnosed that I needed 800 grafts for my frontal area. He seemed very confident to me and I thought since less no. of grafts are needed price would be affordable so I thought why not go ahead with it. I was impressed by Dr. Sarkar's academic background and I assumed that such a person would know about the standard details of hair transplant process. But after the surgery the results shocked me. I never expected that a doctor of his level would make such mistakes and do such medical negligence. Even during the surgery and just after the surgery I was slightly dissatisfied and sceptical whether Dr sarkar's graft estimation was correct or not and doubts about his artistic skills since hair transplant is first an art, we are utilizing a scientific principle to achieve a cosmetic/ artistic end. With the advent of internet a patient might not know every thing about medical science but can surely study independently to a great deal and familiarize oneself with the subject such that it wouldn't be Greek or Latin for the patient and unscrupulous doctors may not take advantage of the patient's ignorance. I know a great deal about the Hair transplant process simply by reading from the internet. During the surgery the meticulous attention to details that is needed wasn't observed at all and Dr Sarkar and his team was simply in a great hurry to complete the surgery whatever be the quality of the HT surgery. After some initial involvement Dr Sarkar delegated the entire surgery to a lady assistant of his who was not even properly trained. She made a huge error. She lowered the left forehead hairline very low, not at the same level as the right forehead hair line. Also the grafts should never be placed in sets of lines but Dr Sarkar and his lady assistant placed all the grafts on both sides of the forehead in sets of lines. Have you ever seen hair growth in your entire body in sets of lines and sufficient space between each of these lines. This doctor doesn't even know this when it's clearly stated in HT literature that grafts should be placed randomly . And this doctor was the topper of Calcutta University and ex-secretary of Association of Plastic surgeons West Bengal and member of Indian association of plastic surgeon. This could be the reason or he wanted to save time and labor, do any kind of surgery since he has already taken the money so give any quality service. While placing the grafts the angulation wasn't correct on the right side of the forehead, it wasn't grossly wrong but certainly not matching the natural hair behind it. At the hair line for naturalness, single hair grafts are used but Dr Sarkar doesn't even have the artistic sense and used double hair grafts. He didn't do trichophytic closure at the donor site properly . At one area there was redness and tenderness and the area was paining and bleeding and thicker than the rest of the donor scar . It was possibly because he didn't suture it properly. Money can corrupt even a meritorious student. Even during the surgery, his attendant whom he had delegated the duty wasted some of my donor grafts since she didn't find space to put the grafts - then how come density is so poor and how come there are ample vacant spaces where transplant wasn't done at all then why were my grafts wasted. In every place where grafting was done there was either cobblestoning or pitting. When I pointed it out to Dr Sarkàr he started bluffing that he had put 1200 grafts and not 800, why will he put 1200 when I paid him for 800. Also he never kept record of when I was supposed to go for follow up. Dr Sarkar is using his academic history to attract patients and earn money without focusing on quality.

Observe carefully ... All photos are digitally tampered ... The faces are digitally blurred. The topper of Calcutta University is engaging in such corrupt and unethical practices... Raising high hopes among the patient community in order that more patients get fooled and approach his clinic.

Check these photos carefully...All are digitally tampered.

Did you heard of the name Dr. Sajal Halder, Clinic- Orange tree aesthetic and hair restoration centre, Dayananda Colony Rd, Block N, Lajpat Nagar IV, Lajpat Nagar 4, New Delhi, Delhi 110024.

Please give me his feedback.
I also went to Dr. Sarker in 2015. He did 2000(as per him) graft. It's more than 14 months and my scalp as well as donor site still hurts. donor site closing is so bad, it raised and whenever i comb my hair its hurt. My grafting site is worse than before. It's looks like I lost more hair than before. It's true he does not do the grafting completely it is mostly done by his lady assistant and others. I am never going to recommend anyone to him. planning to sue him. I paid him by u.s. dollar in cash. He definitely did not report his foreign currency income to income tax dept. I think we all should file a complain with medical board. He should compensate his patient whom he did not do the surgery properly. I am little scare now if it caused any deep damage to my scalp. I am also going to report him to dept of finance. His clinic is unhygenic, no hand soap, tissue . He did not give any receipt for payment. But I kept his prescription, and save the messages i exchanged with him. He did not tell me I am going to loose all my hair to my graft site. I had no hair front of my scalp for more than month until my own hair started coming back. if anyone reading this post can guide me for filing complaint with Indian Medical Board as well as tax dept I will be grateful. i don't want to see this person cause harm/damage to anyone else. I will be in India in January 2017.

I have filed a medical negligence case against Dr. Arindam Sarkar under the recent West Bengal Clinical Establishment Act 2017 at Swasthya Bhavan and also forwarded a copy to Lake Police Station, Kolkata. It is under processing.

Ooops too many bad reviews but he is a good doctor, as per my personal experience and treatment results. I meet him last year for beard and moustache hair transplant . I'm sharing picture of my new look. Thank you Dr Sarkar.
Also i urge people don't trust these review blindly including mine as well. You may miss good doctors due to some unsatisfied folks. Talk with them directly. visit their click and meet other patients and ask their opinion.

Thanks

Bro, I know more than 3 people who are not present in this forum which are having very poor result. if required we all can send our images to prove how good he is. more over why should we blame someone if he didn't do anything wrong.one or two bad result can be understood, why many people blaming him for the same cause, definitely some reason would be there. I am also not getting why you are trying very hard to prove that he is like susrut. your intention is not clear to me. secondly beard and hair transplant is not same thing, even a newbie can understand that. you should share your pic facing the light, that is not the proper way to share the good result. hope you understand
herehidesthegod's [Complaint's author] reply, Jun 5, 2018
Ha Ha Ha, Mr. Vikash,

You are caught red handed fabricating information . Last year @Google Reviews you wrote that you had Hair Transplant and here you are saying that you had beard & moustache transplant. It is NOW v clear that you did not have any treatment. What is the evidence that the picture you have uploaded is AFTER transplant ??? Where is your BEFORE picture ?? This photo is the beard & moustache that you normally have and you are coming and lying that it is AFTER transplant. In that case where is BEFORE picture ???
I also betrayed by dr arindam sarkar. first of all he force you to go for FUT Technique instead of FUE. I checked with several doctors, FUT is good technique for grade 6 or 7 baldness, but FUE is better for lesser grades and also it donot generate any scare mark which we have to borrow life long.But he insists every patients to go with FUT. When i visited to doctor he told me to go for 2000 follicle and he will provide 20% extra as a offer. we agreed to do the HT in 80, 000 rupees.In the day of transplant while implanting the graft, I asked lady doctor( I am not sure if she has any medical degree) how much follicles coming out from the strip and she replied its near to 2000. when I asked the doctor why we are taking assumptions when I am paying as per number of grafts, he told me around 2200 grafts implanted.But when I asked we had a agreement to implant 2400 grafts, he told me 2200 grafts will cover my scalp. even after operation he force me to purchase medicine costs 900-1000 rupees per month. Like that he looted me for 1 year.But after 1 year I found very poor result and countering the doctor, he told me to go for another surgery with 40% discount and regarding poor result he told my head is big so 2000 is not sufficient, it needs more follicle. But before surgery I asked several times, is 2400( as he promised earlier) is enough for me ? why you didn't tell me the proper count? he replayed that if he told me the count the charges would be more. holy ###. I will request all dont be fooled by this man. he is fraud and layer, he always thinks how to suck your money. even his team is not at all good. while separating grafts from the strip, his nurse ASSISTANT damaged its roots, so that after even implanting I didn't see any growth in many follicles till 1 year and after that they fall down. when I told dr why many of the hairs are not coming out, he suggested me to go for alteat 5 laser therapy in his clinic( atri clinic) for 500 rupees each session. That also I did, but cant get good result. That is how he earned 20K extra over 80K by fooling me and I also getting fooled for expecting good result. I asked for bill after HT and he denied to give that, means probably he dont pay any tax to government.such a cheap guy.Please save yourself and keep away from this guy.there are lots of clinic exists in india which will give pleasant result in half of the cost that he charged. you cant imagine what is going on me, after investing more that 1 lakh, still I have to use caps to pretend my baldness. I even dont go for next surgery as my donor area contains very less follicle which can be implanted and that is because of choosing FUT technique.

Why haven't you filed a police Complaint @Rabindra Sarobar police station and complaint @ Swasthya Bhavan yet ?
herehidesthegod's [Complaint's author] reply, Jun 29, 2018
Mr. Prayanantc,
Did you notice in Google Reviews there weren't many positive reviews until Karan Sharma's negative review. Even after your review here, there are few positive reviews that have cropped up in Google Reviews to neutralize your negative review here. Many can't be trusted to be real patients. From 10 reviews how can in such a short time reviews go up to 30 reviews. Even this Vikash Kumar Commented here after Karan Sharma's negative review in Google Reviews... VV suspicious activity ... Dr. Sarkar has started tampering with online reviews & giving fake positive reviews ... I think this vikash Kumar is jobless.
He is good doctor. Not sure about in 2013. In last few years he is one of the bets cosmetic surgeon of Kolkata.
herehidesthegod's [Complaint's author] reply, Apr 1, 2019
In Kolkata no-one has heard of his name. Even other doctors don't know much about him. He has tampered with Google reviews after Mr. Karan Sharma exposed him in Google reviews. Before Karan Sharma s negative review, there were only 10 reviews...after he exposed Dr. Sarkar, from 10 it shot up to 42 in no time... Clearly the positive reviews are not genuine. This happened in 2018, not 2013...Which means from 2014 to 2018 his character and intentions has not changed. It is quite evident that you are not a genuine account.

Regards
Mr. A. Gupta
Well in my case i didn't face such problems while hair loss treatment in Dr. Arindam sarkar desopriyapark clinic. He is experienced and friendly. It took almost 3 month regular treatment to get rid of hair loss issue. I'm extremely satisfied with result.
herehidesthegod's [Complaint's author] reply, Apr 19, 2019
There is no evidence of what you are saying. Dr. Sarkar s strategy is now to make accounts with "female" names and bluff and mislead others. Already in Google reviews Mrs. Aprajita Gupta has very recently exposed Dr. Arindam Sarkar. Previously Karan Sharma exposed him. Another person Mr. Vikash was proved to be a fake patient. To dilute the negative impact of these negative reviews, Dr. Sarkar is resorting to online tampering of reviews and opinions.
