"I recently had a Gastric Sleeve under the care and expertise of one of the finest surgeons I know. (I have been a nurse for 25 years so I do know a few). From my initial consultation, through to my surgery and beyond, I have received superior and flawless care from Dr Andrew Huo. He is a wonderful human being, with a beautiful gentle manner. At all times, I have felt informed and at ease. I highly recommend Dr Andrew Huo to anyone looking for a brilliant surgeon. He deserves these 5 stars and more."

"There aren't enough words to describe how fabulous my experience with Dr Andrew Huo has been, from the very first phone call I had with him all the way through to my current post-operative care. A fantastic surgeon and a great person who truly cares for his patients, I have felt safe, heard and cared for at every step of my journey with weight loss surgery and wider issues. The team Andrew works with are fabulous too, and I cannot speak highly enough of my care and stay at John Fawkner Hospital.

“Andrew Huo is amazing. I wish I could give him more than 5 stars. I had weight loss surgery 6 months ago and Andrew made the whole experience easy and he has stayed in contact the whole time since with post operation follow up appointments. He generally cares about post operative care.

“I had gastric sleeve and hiatus hernia repair surgery about 3 months ago conducted by Dr Andrew Huo. My journey has been amazing from the first day. Dr Andrew made me feel so comfortable. He is very approachable and supportive, but above all, he is very professional. He explained everything in great detail and if I have ever have questions, is always quick to respond. My scars are very neat and I have had no complications. If you are considering weight loss surgery, I highly recommend Dr Andrew Huo.”

“Dr Andrew Huo was amazing right from the start. He took the time to explain the procedure to me and what to expect after. The aftercare I have received is fantastic. My scars are barely visible now and I have gone from 90kg down to 60kg in 6 months. My health and lifestyle have improved so much since having the gastric sleeve surgery and I have had no complications at all. Dr Andrew has given me my life back and I am so grateful, I would recommend anyone wanting weight loss surgery to go and see him you won’t regret it.”
