My daughter, Renee, has written you a letter
of appreciation and thanks and has asked me to pass it on to you.
Allow me to preface her letter by saying that I have had three
surgeries with you, 2002-2004, and yes, I have not been the easiest
patient, but we both survived and am so much better off because
of your kindness, patience, and skill. I am not finished with
what I need to surigically accomplish, but I can't think of anyone
else I would go to except you. You are my doctor and always will
be. In three trips to Bangkok I have watched you change. I have
observed over the years since my SRS in October 2002, that your
mind is always open to new ideas and techniques, and you just
keeep getting better. As I have talked to many of the other patients,
what I hear from them, is gratittude and heart felt thanks to
the doctor who has changed their lives, in the same manner as
you have changed mine. Your concern for your patients and wanting
to offer them the best you have is always there in your smile
and in your gifted hands, The letter from Renee is her idea and
in her words. Thank you. Lynn
I had the pleasure of going to Thailand
with my father, who is now Miss Lynn Balmes, a transgender for
8 years now. She has gone through SRS, chin, nose, eyes, adams
apple, and breast augmentation. All the surgeries perfomed on
Lynn were done by Dr. Pichet in Bangkok, Thailand. Dr. Pichet
was a wonderful host while we were in his country of Thailand.
This was my first trip to Bangkok, I was nervous at first about
Lynn's breast surgery. She decided on 430 cc of silicon jel, which
went under the muscle tissue through her armpit. Dr. Pichet did
an amazing job, Lynn was up and going after three days. The Doctor
and his nursing staff made Lynn and I feel right at home. Dr.
Pichet was even gracious enough to give two free tours during
The culture of Thailand is verybeautiful
and unique, the Thai People are very kind, helpful and friendly.
Dr. Pichet's knowledge of TG's with PTSD
was a great comfort.
As a daaughter of a Vietnam Veteran, who
struggles with PTSD and the hardships of being accepted in society
as a transgender, and I would recommend Dr. Pichet for those who
need surgery and want a doctor of great skill and knowledge, plus
gentle kindness that makes your stay in Thailand a nice adventure.
Miss Lynn is doing just fine, and is very proud of her new size
Thank you Dr. Pichet for giving Lynn a
new identity she can be proud of. To see her happy makes me happy
Many thanks to Dr.Pichet and his nursing

I want to let you know how much I enjoyed
meeting with you the other day. You were most generous with
your time. I have mentioned to several of my clients the vaginal
depth that I observed during the examinations of your patients.
I have also mentioned the excellent facial work you performed on
the client from Texas. I hope that your practice continues
to be successful.

True experience with Dr.Pichet ,
My name is Amie and I am from Indiana
I came to you with a situation I was not
sure what to do about and you assured me you could help me and
YOU certainly have !
I came to see you with my Mom and we were
treated like Queens ! with the best care and love I have ever
been presented with in my life of 39 years . NOWHERE could I have
found this wonderful care and respect .
I was refereed to Dr. Pichet for my needs
by some local people who heard of his practice .
When I contacted the Dr. he replied within
24 hours to me !Upon arrival in Bangkok
I was greeted by a limo service to take
me to my hotel which Dr Pichet had arranged for me to stay in
. It was a very nice ,clean and comfortable room . Compared to
the states I call it staying in the Hilt :)
The following morning I was greeted by
Dr. Pichet and a member of his staff in my room after I had rested
from my trip . He was very polite and concerned as he explained
all of the details and my options to me . Later that after noon
we were taken to the hospital (general hospital ) which is a private
hospital where I was greeted and prepped for my procedure . I
was NOT left alone at any time by a member of his staff ! All
of my fears were put aside while I waited my time .
Once the testing was completed I was taken
to OR and one of the nurses held my hand to make me feel secure
the entire waiting time until I was put under . When I woke up
I was sore as expected but found a smiling face right next to
me , a nurse of his staff who had stayed with me the entire time
and continued to stay with me for the next day ! I was taken to
the Dr. office daily by safe and reliable taxi service where the
Dr. examined me and made sure everything was healing . During>
the stay in the hotel room service was excellent and American
food is available to you . The Dr. makes sure of this .
I am very pleased with the out come of
the surgery and followed his instructions very closely ! My body
has healed and I am very very content with all of the results
from Dr Pichet . If I had to do this over I would certainly request
for Dr. Pichet's services !
I can't say enough good things for the
Dr and his staff !IN closing If anyone would like to contact
me with further information on my experience please feel free
as I will do my best to answer any questions like I had and couldn't
find answers to before I went to Bangkok ! It was sincerely the
right choice to make this journey to Bangkok,Thailand ! I consider
Dr.Pichet and all of his staff my family for the rest of my life
here on this earth ! He is truly a wonderful and loving Dr. !!!!
