    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.

    You'll have to try a few times, maybe he's on holiday or on a conference.

    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.

    Pointer it says:

    They can be reached from 9 to 16hours belgium time every day, but also that they are not always in the possibility to answer the phone.

    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.

    Hey, guys. I was looking for him, too, and it took me to this post! I did find the website of the location in Thailand he seems to be associated with... but he isn't listed as an employee or anything. Still, if you can find someone who speaks English, it's worth a try.
