Dr. Kwon is amazing! My son had his appendix removed by Dr. Kwon and we couldn’t have asked for a better surgeon. He has wonderful bedside manner and truly cares for his patients. My family is so thankful for him.

Dr. Kwon is 45 minutes late arriving to the hospital. This was his first procedure of the day.

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.

He is top- notch. We owe my husband's life to this incredibly talented, fast thinking surgeon. His level of concern and diligence earned our trust. Dr.Kwon's bedside manner is above reproach, he always made the entire family feel at ease and explained each step of my husband's progress. I realize Dr. Kwon specializes in Bariatric procedures but he is an excellent general surgeon. We truly love him.
