Dr. Krahn performed my gastric bypass surgery in 2004. At that time I weighed 355 lbs. I had lost weight several times in my life but it always seemed come back. Today at the age of 77 I weigh 180 lbs. I don't think that I would be alive today without the surgery and I have always credited Dr. Krahn for making that possible. I would do it all over again without any reservations.

For the first time in my life I have kept the weight I lost off for almost a year (reached my goal in Feb 2017). Thank you Dr. Krahn and staff at the Riverside office. Was it easy? No. Was it worth it? Yes. I have my health and energy back. From attending initial the seminar to having the sleeve at Parkview the office staff was on top of what I and they needed to do to make my journey successful. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!

I had my gastric bypass surgery done in 2015 by Dr. Krahn. I can't say enough good things about him, Dr Chinn and the whole staff. Dr. Krahn is very dedicated to his patients. When I had my surgery in 2015 I weighed in at 268 pounds. As of today March fourth,2017 I am down to 135 pounds. I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Krahn and his staff. Any time I had a problem or question they were there to help. Brooke, Jennifer and Stephanie are the bomb!!! Thank you Dr. Krahn for giving me a new life. If you are considering any type of weight loss surgery I suggest you go see Dr. Krahn. Believe me when I say you won't be disappointed.

Dr Krahn and Dr Chin kick ass, so glad they did my surgery instead of Kaiser. I'm totally stoked about the whole experience, no more diabetes meds, down 35 lbs in a month, 3 inches in my waste and 1 shirt size smaller. cant wait till a few more months go by to see where I'm at then. best decision I made in a while. loving life!

Dr. Krahn and his staff have been wonderful to me. I was able to get to my goal weight of 135 in just 6 short months after having the RNY. I had surgery 2 1/2 years ago and have maintained. The staff walked me through everything from what to eat before & after surgery to classes they offer after surgery, as well. The support you get from Western Bariatric is unfounded in this industry. I had friends who had surgery elsewhere and were left all alone with no direction. Make sure you ask about a procedure ONLY Dr. Krahn does called the silastic ring. It will not only help you get to your goal faster but keep you from regaining the weight. I love my new life. THANK YOU DR. KRAHN, DR CHIN AND STAFF
