Dr. Baranov is the best at what he does. His staff is also top notch. The preparation for the procedure was thorough. Dr. Baranov explained the procedure and what I needed to do to be successful completely and in an easy to understand manner. I had gastric bypass and was amazed at how quickly I felt good! My procedure went flawlessly. Dr. Baranov came personally to see how I was doing and spent as much time was was necessary. I never felt he was rushing me. When it was time for discharge, careful, clear explanations about what I needed to do to see continued success in my recovery were given both in person and in written form. I highly recommend this practice to anyone who is considering gastric surgery.
