5 out of 5 stars Sleeve Gastrectomy

All Done and Dusted by the Best Dr Ever

Excellent service and care,after Sleeve, He is the best doctor ever, Can't thank him enough Picked me up from the airport and done my surgery in the same day as he knew I could not stay in Korea for 2 weeks as he wanted me to, I left 5 days after my surgery and never ever had any issues regarding my surgery and after care, I wish him all the best with his cases. They done a fantastic job,very nice and caring people, Absolute 5 Star service My BMI is 34 which insurance would Not pay for my surgery but after some research I decided to travel to Seoul to get sleeved done by Dr Kang and his team, I got picked up from Seoul Airport and had a bus ride talk with my dear doctor and when we got to clinic the team quickly checked me into my private room with WIFI and bathroom and TV, process was easy completed forms and done blood test, 3 pm I was on surgery bench, Woke up and The Nurse and doctor helped me seating up but told me that rest Anyway I am just at beginning of my journey but I can tell how awesome these guys are, They normally will want you to stay at the hospital for 2 weeks which I love to but due to have young kids I have to go home only after 1 week of fun, watching movies and sleeping as much as I like
