I had my surgery in August, 2018. I found Dr. Blaney to be incredibly respectful, very kind, gentle, caring and sweet. He truly cares about his patients. It brings him much joy and satisfaction to watch his patients succeed on their journey to weight loss and health. It is a privilege to have him help me on my journey. Thank you so much Dr. Blandly.

Dr. Blaney is a wonderful surgeon! He did a Hastric Sleeve for me and it was my first ever surgery! I was very nervous and he put me at ease. The surgery was a success and I am grateful every day for him and to have my life back! Thanks Dr. Blaney!!

Dr. Blaney and his staff are amazing. Every time I go into the office I feel like they are 100% paying attention to what I say and need. Making the choice to schedule a consultation was the best decision of my life! I personally had contact with Dr. Blaney, Dr. Thompson, Morgan, Robin, and all of the front office staff. Every one of them makes you feel like a priority and like family! I would recommend them 1000x over!

Dr. Blaney performed a RouxNY Gastric Bypass on me in 2007. It was the best thing I have ever done in my life and he was the best surgeon I have ever had. Dr. Blaney sincerely cares about each and every patient, is straight forward and highly qualified for any bariatric or gastrointestinal issue you may have. He saved my life.
