    Biothera Clinics

    In 2008 I purchased a service from Biothera Clinics Inc. at a price of $4,137.65

    The purchase agreement was made at the clinic located at:




    BIOTHERA CLINICS


    #406 - 750 West Broadway


    Fairmont Medical Building


    Vancouver, BC


    V5Z 1H3


    Bus: (604) 675-3030









    The representatives who I dealt with were:

    1) Tess McCann: program coordinator
    2) Jon Slamko: program coordinator


    Here is a brief outline of concerns I have:

    Biothera is advertising the FDA approval of LLLT as a safe treatment option offered at the clinic: however, there seems to be a loophole which the company is taking advantage of:



    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baldness_treatments#Low-level_laser_therapy


    During my consultation with Jon Slamko, he presented himself as a Trichologist: after I had signed the contract, I casually asked him the following week where he received his medical training in trichology but to my surprise Mr. Slamko WAS NOT a licensed healthcare worker. According to him he received his training at the Biothera corporation. In all fairness he did mention that he holds a degree in marketing, so he's at least qualified to peddle crap.
    After signing the contract Tess McCann only provided me with the first page of the credit application form. I had to get the rest from the desk staff at a later date and after reading the terms in the contract which I found to be questionable, it was too late


    Another observation I noticed was that at the "clinic", the female staff are dressed in scrubs (nurses outfits). It appears that this company misrepresents itself as a medical clinic, unfortunately this deceit conceals something even more unpleasant.


    On one occasion during my treatment at the "clinic", I asked to see some before and after pictures of previous clients. Tess McCann responded by saying that no previous clients were available to attest because of supposed privacy issues.


    When it was time for me to pay the first bill that arrived at my home, the staff told me that I would be paying GE instead of Biothera directly; another loophole I stumbled upon at the "clinic".


    After doing my own research on the Internet, I may have discovered that Biothera's real business name is "0779683 B.C. LTD."


    Only after I signed the contract, I decided to get a second opinion from a credible specialist in the field who told me that there was not enough evidence to support the claims of LLLT as a process to regrow hair and ANYONE could call themselves a Trichologist. I discovered through Dr. Shapiro that Trichologists themselves are not normally licensed healthcare workers

    Either as:

    2. INTERNATIONAL LASER CLINICS

    Step 3: DISCOVER THE SCAM FOR YOURSELF

    Re: Biothera Clinics

    There appears to be obvious subterfuges and intrigues going on with the partnering of GE and Biothera.

    Only a company as large as GE can get away with taking part in a fraudulent business scheme . Which brings to question, what other scams is GE involved in? Their unscrupulous justifications for greed and entitlement are nothing more than clever marketing strategies designed to feed the greedy monster called Capitalism

    In 2009 GE was ranked #1 by Forbes as the world's largest company.

    Read the following:
    This pertains to economies on a global scale...

    In case anyone was wondering why this country is decaying from the inside out, the answer is in a system that sounds grand in the ideal, but doesnít work very well in the reality. The reason is simple. Itís called greed.
    Capitalism typically refers to an economic and social system of supply and demand based on private ownership of capital. It was supposed to give people impetus to achieve while benefiting society by creating jobs and products and services. However, by using supply and demand to their advantage, unscrupulous capitalists can cut the supply of a product, even if itís urgent, and become very rich indeed from taking advantage of peopleís needs.
    One of the best examples of this? Todayís health insurance industry, an unprecedented success story that has made a very small part of society very rich while leaving the rest of us out in the cold. How does it happen? Itís not that hard to follow. The industry spends millions of dollars every year buying greedy members of Congress who are supposed to be working for you, protecting you, looking out for your best interests, but instead sell themselves to the highest bidders. In this instance, these greedy members of Congress, Republicans and Democrats alike, go about making sure that the health insurance industry keeps its Sherman Antitrust Act exemption, and thwarting every effort to reform health care in any way that might impact the industryís profits.
    With much of Congress bought and paid for, by one industry or another, one doesnít have to wonder why ninety-five percent of the nationís wealth is in the hands of one percent of the nationís population.
    In a nutshell, todayís capitalism is a pretty neat reverse Robin Hood that takes from the poor and gives to the rich.

    I hate to point out the obvious, but why would you have not checked out this clinic and it's doctor before you signed any contract or payed any money?

    Who knows desperation, vanity, it just so happens that Dr. Shapiro asked me the same question.

    Oh and btw there are NO DOCTORS working at the Biothera clinics

    Someone should report this company to the College of Physicians and Surgeons for misrepresentation

    https://www.cpsbc.ca/
    1. They operate out of a legitimate medical building
    2. They are located in a medical district of downtown Vancouver just five minutes walk to the General Hospital
    3. They refer to themselves as a clinic
    4. Their employees dress in scrubs: protective garments worn by surgeons during operations
    5. And they advertise that doctors endorse their program
    BULLSHIT, SCAM OPERATION!

    Re: Biothera Clinics

    biothera clinic is nothing but a scam i am currently in the program just 2.5 months in and i paid 2300 dollars upfront and i told them that i cant continue my treatment i am relocating i told them that i would like some of the money back their answer of course no refund, there is so many flaws in the way they run things they are set to win no matter what. This is absolute greed in my opinion i told them do the fair thing you should be ashamed this is way you treat customers. i am meeting with jon and i am not leaving this thing alone, for me its not all about the money back, its deceit and lies all the way through.

    they claim they know everything about hair none of them are doctors, there is no lab in their, i tell you whats in their a bunch of boxes with products thats it and you cant convince that little laser machine you take home is worth 1500 maybe 150 dollars . A bunch of horse crap in my opinion

    Re: Biothera Clinics

    In response to your post, this is a posting I put on to another site and I've copied and pasted it here for you. I am going to go to court to get my money back. If you'd like to join forces let me know. All the best.


    Laser herapy in my personal opinion does work. I've done the research and am very impressed. I am not impressed however with Biothera. Significantly into the 12 month program I have not only seen no improvement from the vantage point of a mirror, I would say it has gotten a little worse even though I also take Proscar which is a drug that stops the production of DHT which is the main cause of hair loss. You'll have to look this up yourself as it is too wordy to explain here. The first problem you need to know is that the written guarantee they give you is not worth the paper it is written on. In person they will tell you that if you don't see a change in 12 months you get your money back ($4000.00) minus the products they give you which is more than fair. Unfortunately the written guarantee states that if there is no improvement ("as determined by ProScope measurement or photos") then you get a refund. The problem is that if the Proscope shows that even a 0.5 square centimeter area of sclap has developed any hair growth or thickness then they deem that to be a success and you don't get a penny back. It doesn't matter that no one can actually see the difference without this 50x magnifying scope. It the scope picks up any change regargless of how small, then you are not entitled to a refund. While discussing this with a staff member, they told me it is not a personal satisfaction guarantee. It is just a guarantee that there will be some change regardless of how small...you don't even need to be able to see it with your eyes for it to be considered a success. This is exactly what they told me.

    The other problem is this. This is based on my personal observations so take it as a lay persons opinion but this particular person (me) has done a ton of research. Look up Lars Hode on the internet. He is the scienentist who literally wrote the book on laser therapy. The machine that you sit under for 15 minutes once a week in their office in my opinion is not powerful enough to penetrate any hair on your head down to the scalp let alone down half a centimeter to the hair folicle. I put a piece of paper up to the laser beam and it barely went through the paper with any intensity on the other side. The light on my finger on the other side of the paper was so dim that there is no way it would ever penetrate down into the scalp through the hair. I mention this because my thinning areas are covered up by the hair that I do have (at the front). The people that work there have never told me to brush my hair out of the way so that the laser hits the scalp directly. I do anyway but still I have seen no improvement and I am almost done the 12 months. Biothera has an F rating with the better business bureau which is the worst rating you can get. This is mostly because they do not respond to unhappy clients concerns. Just be aware that the guarantee is for all intents and purposes there to protect them and to bait you into giving them money. Based on my research (which is limited mind you) only one person who has formally complained through the better business bureau has ever gotten any money back. The amount is unknown. These are very unethical people indeed. Govern yourself accordingly.

    Re: Biothera Clinics

    Prior to being accepted into treatment. a potential patient must come into one of our Biothera Laser Clinics for a 30 minute consultation and evaluation. At that time, your hair loss situation will be clearly assessed. At present, there is no charge for consultations in Canada. Simply call one of our clinics.

    Re: Biothera Clinics

    It is every bit a scam. Its mainly a family run business of the Slamko's (BC/AB). The program will most likely not show any success in the one year of treatment. You will never get the money back for all the products used. And as for the garantee about the money back (minus products), that is not happening either.
    Ive been involved in a legal suit against them in calgary since 2008, and its still ongoing. They know how to play the game, and they also know that the scammed amount isnt big enough that you would hire a lawyer. So in short, they never loose.... people just give up.
    Anyway, to me its a matter of challenge, and I vow to get my money back from them, and help others who are in the same boat.
    So, anyone in calgary looking to sue International laser clinics, proimage, len slamko or Biothera, contact me at amal_nayyer@yahoo.ca and we will make them pay for the fraud they commit.

    Re: Biothera Clinics

    Hi, yet again in Calgary, the company that was once International laser clinics (scam) and then became ProImage international Laser Clinics, and then Biothera Laser clinics, has now undergone new change: it is now called laser therapy solutions. http://www.lasertherapycalgary.com/.

    It is manned by the same team: Len Slamko, Rod Danforth etc who have been part of all of the above through the business' progression. It is important for anyone who is considering laser therapy for hair growth to know that everything that applies to ILC scam and biothera scam applies to Laser therapy solutions. Dont fall for it. "only company to garantee results" I think not. Once youve paid them, and the treatment fails, there is no garantee and you wont get your money back... and they know its a gruelling process to take them to court. And they fully abuse it to their advantage.
    Since I have been keeping at it since 2008 (I have a judgment agains ILC but no money has been paid because of the legalistic obstacle course in my way called "corporate shield" behind which these people hide). I have been offered "settlement offers" by Len slamko at various times tactically right before a court date. I guess he was hoping Id be gullible enough to trust his useless word and miss my court dates, just so he can laugh at me again. But each time, after the court date passed takes no action with regards to any offers. Him and his word are not to be trusted. Man has no integrity, and is an orginal scammer.
