Dr. Korn did a fantastic job with my Roux-en-Y gastric bypass and with a complication I experienced two weeks later. I trust him completely.

Communicates in detail. Has since if humor. Shows empathy and caring for others. Has a welcoming personality. Does not try to overwhelm with big medical words. When he has to use them, he explains in detail.
