Want to see how our patients have completely transformed their bodies with our minimally invasive, weight loss procedures? Take a look at the before and after photos below!
I had the original gastric bypass surgery in 2001 with Dr. Alan Wittgrove. I was 326 pounds the day of surgery, and had lost 204 pounds within 14.5 months. I was able to keep the weight off for about six years, and then it started to come back on. By 2009 I was up 90 pounds. I knew I had to do something, which is what led me to Dr. Korman. I should let you know that I had talked my mom into having the surgery back in 2001. We had it done on the same day. She lost 140 pounds in a year, and was at her goal weight. She never gained it back. She was 5'3" and weighed between 123 and 125 pounds on any given day. My mom was a beautiful woman before weight loss surgery, but was stunning after.

I came to Dr Korman from 1-800-GET-THIN, the one that was on every billboard in California..with complications such as night coughs and pneumonia.The GET THIN Company or whatever it was called had been shut down by the feds..but I had already left before that..I wish this is where I originally would have went as I had a lot of problems with my band that could have been avoided. The Doctor knew right away it had always been too tight by my symptoms .The Doctor and his staff are the BEST....I still see him for adjustments and yearly X-rays. Great bedside manner too..he spends time with his client and really cares...Highly Recommend !!
Dr. Korman, RN Bridgette and all of the staff at the Marina del Rey location are fantastic. They are always happy to see me even though I have not kept up with my post surgery program. They make sure to inform me of different options I have to continue my weight loss goals and they have professional staff available if I need them.
The only problem at this location is the charge for parking. However, you can also park at the Ralph's across the street and walk in.
I would definitely recommend LA Bariatrics to anyone needing this service.
