He was very patient with me. I had many concerns and he took his time explaining the procedures in a regular persons language. Not medical terms. I felt very comfortable with the Dr.

I would recommend Dr. Chae if you are interested in Bariatric surgery. He is an excellent surgeon and he is trust worthy and puts your mind at ease about having Bariatric surgery. He very knowledgeable and he answered all my questions that I had about the surgery. After the surgery he is still interested in how I am doing and is very supportive of my weight loss journey.

My husband went with me to my initial appointment and we both walked out of there saying how impressive Dr. Chae was and that is how all doctors SHOULD be. He was so great at listening, explaining to us the process, and answered any questions we had. Even the nurses at my pre-op appt at the hospital raved about him. His staff is also amazing.

I had a gastric sleeve in April 2017. Was able to get my surgery scheduled within 3 weeks of initial consultation (self pay). Got an appointment within a week of calling the office. Other doctor's were months out. Most people once they have made the decision to pursue this just want to get in as soon as possible. Dr. Chae did an excellent job of explaining things. I am extremely happy with the care and results I have received.

Dr. Chae and his staff have completely wowed me as far as my experience as a patient. From my first consultation until today (3 months post-op from gastric bypass surgery), Dede, his office manager, Christine, the insurance specialist, and Kelly, the nutritionist that works very closely with Dr. Chae and his patients, have all made me feel that I have been taken very good care of pre and post surgery. I can recommend Dr Chae and his team very highly to anyone thinking about weight loss surgery
