From beginning the process of working with Dr. Baranov and his staff to get approval for Bariatric Surgery to all of the follow-up appointments, everyone was and continues to be excellent! I had vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) on 02/04/2019 and since surgery have lost close to 100 pounds. This type of surgery is definitely just a tool and not a quick fix. I did experience some plateaus and “bumps in the road” along the way but, Dr. Baranov and his PA’s Andrea, Rachel & Erica definitely work with you to help you get back on track. I am very glad to say that this surgery and the staff support at the office have helped me get to a healthy BMI and off blood pressure medications. I highly recommend Dr. Baranov and his staff for anyone considering weight loss surgery or just weight loss guidance
