"Dr. Chen is amazing." —Allison, City of Simi Valley, CA
My whole life I struggled with weight loss. I tried all the diets out there from weight watchers to atkins, and nothing would give me long term results. I decided that I needed a greater tool so I started researching bariatric surgery. I lost my dad at a young age to heart disease and didn't want my daughter to feel the pain of losing her mother.
I found UCLA COMET program online and made the consultation appointment. Dr. Chen is amazing. He is caring and truly has passion for helping people change their lives. The whole team at UCLA is wonderful and they give you everything you need to be successful. My life is great and have no regrets except not doing it earlier.
