How likely are you to recommend Dr. Chen?

(Select your rating)
I had my gastric sleeve surgery with Dr. Chen at UCLA COMET at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on April 23, 2019. I weighed in at 262 lbs. Today, over a year later, I am nearly 100 lbs down. Recovery was as expected with some soreness and fatigue, but I had zero nausea and to this day have not thrown up once since the surgery. I'm able to eat any type of food or have any type of drink without issue, just I can't have too much of anything. I feel happier and healthier. Having this surgery is one of the best decisions I've ever made right next to having it done by Dr. Chen.
