On June 15th, I prepared myself for a three hour surgery. Turned out to be much more complicated. The surgery took 8.5 hours. Dr. Nguyen was a class act. He communicated well with me on the phone, and showed up at the hospital. The whole staff is excellent, he's excellent, and I highly recommend anybody who is looking for weight loss surgery to go in this direction. Dr. Nguyen, by far, does everything he can to make his patients feel comfortable in what they are doing.
