Laser cryptology FAQs

Seems like quite a few people end up at my blog for the medical section...go figure! I most often get asked about laser cryptology (usually via comments which I don't make publicly visible, sometimes people hunt down my email address). So, to save everyone the effort, I'm clearing up the most frequently asked questions about my laser cryptology procedure.

1. Where did you get the laser cryptology done?
Answer: It was an outpatient procedure done in Fullerton, CA.

2. What kind of doctor does the procedure? Does a dentist do this sort of thing or does it require some special kind of doctor?
Answer: My doctor is an ear, nose, and throat surgeon. I believe that's the way to go. I have no idea if other types of doctors or surgeons do this procedure, sorry.

3. Who did the laser cryptology? Who is your doctor?
Answer: I saw Dr. Christopher Quilligan from Associated Head & Neck Surgeons. He and the other surgeons in his office have a practices in Brea, Fullerton and Yorba Linda.

Phew! Now I don't have to keep looking up the contact info. I can just refer back to my blog. ;-)

I hope you find this helpful...

In case you're wondering, the procedure helped but it didn't cure the problem for me. I still get the occasional tonsil stone, but the difference is I'm able to get them out myself now. I am considering doing it once more to (hopefully) get rid of the problem for good. It is still annoying and frustrating, but at least it isn't as painful as it was before.

I ordered before I was born?!

Here's a good example of what happens when a developer sends out a mass email, probably using test data instead of the real date. I "[removed]" the domain name as not to embarass them further. Indeed, I ordered (some headphones) from them 2 years ago.

"Our records indicate that you registered or purchased from our web site www.[removed].com back on 12/31/1969 4:00:00 PM, but we haven't heard from you since then."

First, I was born in 1975. Second, if anyone ever ordered online from them in 1969...well, I think it just goes without saying.

Just sharing this because I found the date to be pretty funny... However, it does remind me that when creating a mass email, one should test, test, test and test some more. Then get some sleep and test even more before the real thing!
