I had gastric bypass 3 years ago. My life is so awesome now. I don't take any insulin or blood pressure meds now. I have kept off the over 100 lbs I lost after surgery. My only regret is that I waited so long to have the surgery. Dr. Kwon is a very kind and caring.

Dr. Kwon has superb 'bedside manner'. He removed my gall bladder with no issues, but I was most impressed by the respect and kind regard he gave me, and the confidence he instilled in me prior to the procedure. For this simple surgery he made me feel like his most important patient.
