I highly recommend Dr. YU! From the start of the process he was very knowledgeable. He was straightforward and explained in detail my options and gave his recommendation. When I left I felt secure and confident that I would be able to take on this life changing event. I have gone from 345 to 155 after the sleeve surgery and now have stabled off at 175 which is a good and healthy weight for me. I would not have done this without Dr. YU!

I was referred to Dr Yu by a fellow trial attorney who had done extensive research on the surgeons that were renowned for their technique and low complication rates: I looked no further than Dr Sherman Yu. As a nurse practitioner and an attorney I wanted the very best and I received the best. I had no complications after surgery. Dr Yu and his staff are responsive and simply put the best. I highly recommend this surgeon of impeccable character and reputation. Joe Flores JD APRN 100+wt loss
