Ali Sultaneh and His “Stolen” Surgery
His purpose on forums used to be to convince people that he could cure migraines. Over time, that purpose has shifted. Now he’s plaguing migraine forum members with his pathetic whines that his surgery has been “stolen” by other doctors.
First of all, no surgery can cure migraine. As I understand it, it’s a neurological and genetic disease that we don’t have a cure for yet. So, he’s either deluded or a liar on the “cure” thing. Maybe his surgery could be a good measure to prevent migraines. I don’t know, and that’s not my point.
My point is that he’s pestering people who can’t do anything about this supposed threat, patients. He needs to shut up, man up, and hire a lawyer. On one forum, author and patient advocate Teri Robert gave him excellent advice. She told him, quite correctly, that theft of a valuable surgery would be a huge story for a reporter and suggested that he go to the web sites of papers such as the New York Times and Washington Post, find contact information for reporters, and get in touch with them. Now, a sane human being would have thanked her for the advice, then taken it. But, no, not Sultaneh. He actually had the balls to attack her and accuse her of being responsible for migraine sufferers committing suicide because she doesn’t support him.
At best, Sultaneh is a jerk. Some migraine forums, where managing members is set up better, kick him out the minute he shows up. Others seem to put up with him. Why, I don’t know. It certainly isn’t in the best interests of their members. There’s nothing forum members can do about Sultaneh’s claims of theft, so all he’s accomplishing is pissing people off.
Sultaneh has attempted to post several comments here to tell you and me his woes. Ain’t gonna happen!
Sultaneh, if you’re telling the truth about your surgery, get a lawyer or contact a reporter as Ms. Robert suggested. Otherwise, shut the hell up. You’ve killed whatever credibility you may have had with your abuse of migraine forums and their members. Continuing this nonsense can only make things worse. People may feel sorry for you. Undoubtedly, some people are laughing at you. But the bottom line is that none of these people can do a thing about your supposedly “stolen” surgery.
