I was very impressed with Dr. Baranov, he was very easy to talk to and answered each question so that I could understand exactly what was going to happen, and he followed every answer with "and I'll tell you why" while never making me feel uncomfortable asking any question. I was more impressed with him with each visit he was always friendly and very supportive. One of the most important things about Dr. Baranov is that he never once made me feel bad about being obese which made a difficult emotional process that much easier.

Prior to my discharge from the hospital he gave me a verbal quiz on what the most important things were again emphasizing the importance of following the after care protocol.

I would rate Dr. Baranov as an excellent surgeon.

In this particular doctors case you really don't sacrifice on either surgical competence or bedside manner as he performs both with ease.

Dr. Baranov is an amazing surgeon. He was very easy to talk to, and ensures that you have an understanding of all three procedures, so you can make the best choice for you. He cares about his patients and will do all he can to help you to succeed. There was never a time when consulting with him that he made me feel insecure or ashamed of being overweight. My surgery went smooth sailing. I had no complications. I am three months out and have absolutely no regrets. Dr. Baranov, himself, even called me at HOME on a WEEKEND to make sure I was still doing well post discharge. I would recommend Dr. Baranov to anyone who is considering weightloss surgery. His attention to detail and support is greatly appreciated!

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.

I met Dr. Dmitri Baranov four years ago and began thinking of having the surgery at that time. I went through the seminar and 5 of the 6 months requirements and decided to loose weight on my own.
It was a real struggle and my mind set was not yet there. Now three years later, after a lot of soul searching and varying thoughts, I decided to try again. Dr. Baranov and his staff were very welcoming and helpful through the next six months process and while I was making my decision. I decided to go ahead with the surgery as I didn’t want a catastrophic health event to be my catalyst for change. It was important to do it on my own terms. They all helped me see the benefits, ponder the risks and kept me well informed along the way. Dr. Baranov is very clear on his expectation of his patients and is very kind in his treatment of us. I had the gastric sleeve surgery 3 weeks ago and I am doing extrememly well. I came home with no pain from the surgery or incision sites (this was done via laparoscopic surgery), and I was just uncomfortable with gas pains, which were gone by day five. I have no regrets, my mind set is on my health now and I am enjoying my new journey. Dr. Baranov was highly recommended as the surgeon to use for this procedure by all doctors I have been seeing for up to 20 years. They knew me andd my health issues and they knew him. It was a great fit. I would highly recommend anyone thinking about this surgery to contact Dr. Baranov and begin the process. We get to take our life back, we can have a much different relationship with food and we can be healthy again. By the way, I am 63 years old and felt it is never to late. Thank you, Dr. Baranov for your phenomenal surgery skills and thank you to your staff for your continued assistance, and your constant support!

Diabetes changed my life. Christmas of 2008 I contracted Guillane-Barre Syndrome allegedly from the common flu shot. It rendered me paralyzed from the neck down and took the hospitalists at Saratoga Hospital three weeks to diagnose it. After recovery I was left with full blown type two diabetes. I was overweight, smoked, and drank heavily. Atkins, Suzanne Sommers, Jenny Craig, Weightwatchers all had their hand at trying to get me to slim down. But inevitably the old hand to the mouth reflex had them beat.

Then we heard about Doctor Dmitri Baranov and his success rate using Bariatric Surgery. Upon discussing it with friends and family we found that many had already experienced this and the surgery had changed their lives. I had the RNY surgery in November 16th, 2016 and it has truly changed my life.

He is a consummate professional. He is the top in his field. He is very personable and a good listener. I would highly recommend my surgeon Doctor Dmitri Baranov to anyone for this life changing procedure. I am glad I did. I quit smoking, drinking, and my diabetes has turned the corner. He is weaning me off the high-blood pressure meds and I feel so much better.

Two thumbs up!!

Dr. Baranov is a no-holds-barred kind of dr.! I consider him extremely OCD, but medically speaking, that transfers to the most thorough dr I've ever had! Everyone who works in his office is very knowledgable about all things bariatric and they are very helpful with answering questions. Throughout this process they have offered a variety of support services including support groups, the practice's own website, on-line support groups, and many other tools to help in the decision-making process and to help once the decision to change your life for the better has been made. I am 4 weeks post RNY surgery and I feel great! I continue to make use of all the tools offered at Dr. Baranov's practice and I know that I will be successful if I make good use of these tools for this lifestyle change!

I have been overweight most of my life. I have an auto immune disease called scleroderma and it was taking over my life. All my specialist were telling me to lose weight and I was trying to but eating healthier and exercising wasn't enough. I was always exhausted and the weight would go up and down but I wasn't gaining any ground. I had always been against weight loss surgery and to be honest I felt it was a cop out. One of my Dr.s suggested the lap band. The only reason I even listened was because it was removable. I ended up going to Dr. Baranov's free seminars and let me tell you... I learned more in those two hours about weight loss than I had in my entire life of online researching and fad diets.

Due to my disease I ended up getting the RNY done. I am almost 9 months out and I've already lost 105 lbs and am only 15 lbs away from my persona goal (I already reached the Dr.s goal). But what's even better than the way I look, is the way I feel! My blood pressure is down, my sleep apnea is gone, my blood sugar is normal, my acid reflux is gone, the swelling in my hands and feet is gone....the list goes on and on. I feel 20 years younger. I don't ever remember feeling this good! I used to think I would be dead in 10 years or less and now I know I will live at least 20+ more years thanks to Dr. Baranov! He has been a Godsend to me and my family. God Bless you Dr. B!!!

I recently had gastric sleeve surgery preformed at Saratoga Hospital by Dr Dmitri Baranov. My experience with Dr Dmitri Baranov and his practice have been wonderful. The overall friendliness and professionalism of the practice is top notch. For anyone in the local area considering weight loss surgery look no further. You will have a excellent experience working with Dr Dmitri Baranov and his practice.
