    Does anyone have a phone number to contact Dr. Maes? I found one on his website, however, I called it twice in the last two days and only got an answering machine and I cannot understand what they are saying as it is of course not in English and I am in US. Also, I would like to here from any patients of Dr. Maes, and what their experience has been with him, etc.. I did look up the time difference from the US and Belgium, and called 4:50 pm and 3:00 pm Belgium time.

    Thanks

    It's a peak time for the holiday season in Europe and quite a few doctors researchers etc will be away on leave right now.

    Good luck and I hope you get an answer.

    Thanks for the info. I will keep trying, but it is difficult not understanding the language on the answering machine, and it wont seem to let me leave a message.

    I thought Maes was no longer based in Belgium but Bangkok, Thailand? His research papers carry a clinic address in Thailand if I remember correctly, and I had heard from friends in Belgium that he left that country. I'd be interested in learning more. Thanks :)

    Frank, you said in 2010 that his Belgium clinic had also closed unexpectedly, and a rumor was he had left for Thailand: http://forums.phoenixrising.me/index.php?threads/maes-clinic-in-belgium-closed.7485/

    I am sure there was a website I found for his Thai clinic some time back, there is certainly a Thai address on all his latest published works e.g. Maes Clinics @ TRIA, Bangkok, Thailand

    However a brief search now on Google doesn't take me to any clinic in Thailand that I can see.
