Dr. Holden is very professional, friendly, and personable! I recently started seeing her, and am currently doing the process to get the gastric sleeve. I feel very confident in her as a surgeon. Her staff is also wonderful!

Keller, TX |
Gastric bypass, 3+yrs post-op, exact same weight as before surgery. First met on day of surgery (other staff handled all else) for less than 1 min. Afterwards, nurse told me he switched my surgery to sleeve. At my shock, she said she was mistaken. Lost 5 lbs, regained within 3 mos. Remedy was just drink shakes, for life. 1 year later hospitalized for twisted intestines, saw different surgeon who was so concerned that a BYPASS patient didn't lose weight that he doubted the surgery even occurred.
in Colleyville, TX |
Wonderful.
in Bedford, TX |
Dr. Kim performed a gastric sleeve surgery on me. He was very professional and reassuring. I was amazed by the fact that I had no post-operative pain. I did not need the pain medications prescribed. My only regret is that since becoming a medicare participant any subsequent visit will be 100% out of pocket. I don't expect to need a revision, however.
in Colleyville, TX |
