"The Best Decision of my life." —Sandra, North Ridge, CA

I can’t thank enough Dr. Yijun Chen and Dr. Dina Kamel, Dr. Manuel Mendoza Seuna Park Nurse Practitioner, Anna Balioukova Nutritionists, Anesthesiologist and the entire amazing team at UCLA Center for Obesity and metabolic health, for changing my unhealthy life, for a new way of wonderful healthy life.

I was a 205 pounds, 5 feet tall women, with a morbid obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, Hypothyroid, leg and knee pain, back pain, no energy.

I met with Dr. Chen and his Magnificent team, Endocrinologist, Nurses, Psychologist, Nutritionist, and they walked me through all the process of having the Gastric Sleeve Surgery.

Now I weight 120 pounds with all the energy I had when I was on my 20’s, no more high blood pressure prescriptions, Cholesterol controlled. I learned to change my eating habits, now I eat to live, no more living to eat anymore.

I thank God every day for giving me the Best of the Best caring Team in the world.
