I did a huge amount of research on WLS in my area and found it to be non personal and very factory like. I was very concerned about comorbidities including age and a blood disorder. A physician friend suggested Dr. Baranov. I was relieved and impressed from the moment I walked in. His entire staff takes the time to get to know each patient. They are prompt with any inquiries. Above and beyond is the standard for Dr. Baranov. He even did a post-op check on a holiday. I cannot recommend him enough.
