What our patients say


I’m a patient there since 2000.About 5 weeks ago I had breast reduction and breast lift. What a fast recovery!! I was able to go back to work after 4days of my surgery. I had terrible pain on my back and shoulder (because of weight on my breast) now all the pains are gone. The shape just came out beautiful Dr.Kwan did such a amazing job. He called and checked on me how I was doing after 2days the surgery. (I was so impressed) also I’m so pleased about their staffs. Rebecca the manager there, I know her since 2000 she was so nice the whole time She constantly called checking on me. She explained to me what I should do before and after the surgery so kindly. The whole time I felt so comfortable and pleased. I feel like I’m living new life again!

Great doctor and great team!!!
