I live in New Mexico and was sleeved in Texas in the summer of 2012 and lost a total of 65 pounds. After about 18 months the initial restriction that I once had was gone and I could eat large amounts of food again. I've gained back all of the weight. I contacted Dr. Kim's office about a revison to the duodenal switch but I was curtly informed that he doesn't perform revison procedures on out of town clients. I wish he would've told me that years ago when he had no problem taking my $12,000.

I am following the surgeon that did my surgery, but this office all it wants is to put people down and take customers money. They will NOT help you financially or make you feel ease on loosing weight. I will never recommend this office.
We appreciate the candid feedback. We strive to provide superior care and an unrivaled patient experience. We are disappointed to hear that there was any dissatisfaction with results. It is never our intention to come across as unsupportive at any stage of treatment. That being said, if there are any questions or concerns, we ask patients to reach out to us as soon as possible so that we may address them promptly. We are here to help, and send out our best wishes to all!.

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!

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.

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.
