in Grovetown, GA |
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...more
