Dr Yoo did s great job. The procedure was very quick and painless for me. I was in surgery for 5-6 hours, out cold, so it was a flash for me :) Everything went amazing! I lost 100 pounds 8 months latter. He is very nice and his team is also great! I wish I could email him to thank him!!!

Dr. Yoo did an amazing job with my gastric bypass in February of 2015. Currently, I have lost 110 lbs. I have not had any complications. I would highly recommend him to anyone contemplating weight loss surgery!
