"I strongly recommend UCLA and Dr. Dutson and his team of outstanding professionals." —Michael, Pasadena, CA

I have struggled with my weight for over 40 years. I felt bad that I was not able to reduce my food intake and increase my exercise. I had considered surgery in the past but was fearful and felt that I should have the will power to beat my overeating. I talked with colleagues that had the surgery with positive results.

I researched the various options but was attracted to the UCLA COMET program. My wife and I attended their seminars and met with their outstanding doctors and staff. I am down about 90 lbs. It has been a three year journey but well worth it. The surgery and recovery was manageable and over time my eating has stabilized. I strongly recommend UCLA and Dr. Dutson and his team of outstanding professionals. The surgery and recovery was well worth the benefit of losing the weight.
