"Dr. Chen helped me so much, I will be grateful for the rest of my life." —Maria

For too many years, I’ve had a problem with my weight. I had a lot of problem with my thyroid. I had several surgeries to prevent breast and ovarian cancer. But it was a big problem, because I kept gaining weight. After this, I saw my doctor and he told me I was morbidly obese. I was very scared because I kept developing more problems like diabetes. He suggested bariatric surgery to help me lose the weight.

When I saw Dr. Chen, he looked at me and said we can do the surgery. He told me that the surgery can help me lose weight, but more importantly it can help with my cancer prevention. He really gave me a new life. In the past year and a half, I lost more than 70#.

I feel healthier and younger and have gained so much more confidence. My life changed 100%. I’m happier, and my depression is gone. I feel good looking at myself in the mirror again. Dr. Chen helped me so much, I will be grateful for the rest of my life. I recommend Dr. Chen to my friends and family. I feel I can achieve anything now.
