I had gastric bypass 5 days ago. And I feel fabulous. If you are looking for a surgeon Dr. Baranov should be your first (and only) choice. He is meticulous. From the comprehensive introductory seminar to post op follow up, you will be in the absolute best of hands. Everything is thoroughly explained, options are explained, and questions are always answered in depth. The office is run like a well oiled machine. Waiting time is never more than 10 minutes. It is a very busy office but you are always treated as an individual and the office team has always been very responsive. If you investigating a possible surgeon you can stop right here. Dr. Baranov is the absolute best.
