Well, if you look at his prices, he's not making a direct appeal to wealthy women.

Her community had a huge Labor Day picnic and she told me that she asked most of the women at the picnic if they ever heard of him and according to her not one ever heard of him. Even though I think a lot of his popularity is internet generated, to be honest with you, I was a bit surprised.

IDK. No idea about pricey picnic crowd. Maybe they go to Thomas Roberts who's in one of the Carolinas or Dr. Law.


But don't you think if he had any kind of local reputation good or bad someone would have heard of him.

I wonder if most of Asheville's wealthy facelift crowd go to Atlanta for their facelifts? It's only about a 3.5 - 4 hour drive.

That makes sense. However to look at it differently, if he had a really bad reputation maybe then it would be known about town. Who knows????

The high-end hair dressers in town usually know who the bad ones are.

New interesting review.

Interesting that Dr. Harley offers his facelift without any consultation.

I see she uses the term 'honeymoon phase'; time where diffuse swelling kicks up euphoric 'result' that is NOT a result. Wonder if they are reading the Miss J board because I use that term a LOT.

On one of my open critiques of RS, which, I think, Zoey you made a topic about (RS 'university'), I noted they actually ENCOURAGE doctors to have their patients put up reviews ASAP, which is basically the honeymoon phase. Good 'biz' for RS and doctors but NOT for patients. Well, at least people on the Miss J board have known about this honeymoon phase for YEARS. Glad to hear the OP of the review is catching on to that. However all those early reviews in honeymoon phase would be due to RS ENCOURAGING that. IMO, they should have a separate section for BLOGS of a patient--you know entries where they start posting about their surgery even before they get it and when the post op is so SOON. All that should be a BLOG section. For REVIEWS, there should be a separate section for review to be entered at appropriate time frame to speak of a 'result' and perhaps with a link to the person's blog.

Anyway, Zoey, if you are on there and know a RS member who's case is up here, can you tell them it's here?

Do you think they saw my critique of them or was there something wrong with her review?

I don't know. When I was on your site tonight leaving my post, I decided to click on the link to see what was going on, and was surprised to see the thread removed.

Hmm, that's too bad the review was removed. I know she was getting a lot of pushback from other users for posting a less-than-glowing experience. Maybe that was why she deleted it.

Oh, OK. Please correct me if I'm wrong. But I was under the impression that RS did not allow reviewers to delete their reviews and it was their shot to call whether to delete a review. Do people who post a review have the option to delete it after they get a bunch of responses?

Yes, I think they do. I was PMing with somebody who had written a review. I noticed the review disappeared and asked her about it. She said she deleted it because she ran into somebody she knew in the PS waiting room, haha. Didn't want them to know what she had done I guess.
