"Having bariatric surgery has changed my life" —Lori

I have struggled with my weight for many years and have tried every diet out there with no success. I had back problems and was going on my fourth back surgery. Before I could have the surgery I needed to lose anywhere from 50 to 70 pounds. I was told to see Dr. Chen in the bariatrics department. The moment that Dr. Chen walked in he made me feel comfortable. He explained the procedure, I spoke to the nutritionist and made an appointment for a class.

I had my surgery on January 29, 2018 and I am going on my year anniversary losing 100 lbs. My experience at UCLA COMET was excellent. The diet was easy to follow. Having bariatric surgery has changed my life. I feel better about myself. I walk with my head held high with confidence. Thank you Dr. Chen, you and your staff are amazing and I thank you so much.

Sincerely, Lori
