5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

52 Yr Old 6 Children - Schenectady, NY

All my appointments and phone calls have had the doctors and his staffs full attention. I never felt like a number. They make you feel special.

52 Year Old Really over Due Mommy Make over - Schenectady, NY

I've had 2 consultation with Dr. Barach and his staff they were all very professional and personable. I felt welcomed and at ease when I was there. He explained everything to me what he thought he could realistically make my stomach look like. As far as the breasts, he discussed in detail how the procedure is done. His assistant let me try on a sizer bra with different size implant to get an idea of the different looks. As far as size, he measured me to make sure the breasts size I picked out would fit my body without compromising my shape. I told him I'd like to be a Full C but I have full confidence that he'll make them look great for my body.

Very Happy with the Care That I Received from Dr Barach and His Staff - Schenectady, NY


So Excited! 2-step Process from TT to Lipo, May 23rd!! - Schenectady, NY

In one word he is: incredible... but in considering his whole effectiveness there needs to be given credit to everyone in his office, as well. Dr. Barach takes as much time as you need to discuss the procedure, answer any questions (and he will ask if you have more), and get a thorough understanding for what you want and how his expertise can help you achieve your goal. His bedside manner is fantastic and he is easy to speak with. He has oodles of credentials and it comes across in his discussing with you how he works and what to expect before and after the procedure, and in informing you of what he does while on the table under his care. I cannot recommend Dr. Barach highly enough.

TT on March 22, 2013 So Worth It - Schenectady, NY

Saw local ads for Dr. Barach, and then my husband had skin cancer issues on his scalp. Husband visited the doc that Dr. Barach shares space with.

Great Experience with Dr. Barach - Schenectady, NY

I have wanted a Tummy Tuck since fat accumulation that never improved after pregnancy, regardless of exercise and diet- including going down to a smaller size and lower weight than I started at before my first pregnancy. I was in the best hands under Dr. Barach and his team. They work together to ensure your comfort while in their hands- the entire team of professionals in his office treats...

34 Yr Old Mom of 4 Full Tummy Tuck - Schenectady, NY

This was my 2nd procedure with Dr. Barach. I also had a breast augmentation in 2009. Dr. Barach is very thorough during consults and always allows ample time for question & concerns. I never felt rushed or that my questions were silly. He has a more mindful/conservative approach to ensure the best results possible. He is always honest about negative/positive aspects of a procedure which is appreciated. I was extremely anxious about my abdominalplasty but am so happy I did it. The processes and care I received were superb. The relationship and level of comfort I've received from the Dr & his entire staff make me feel like family. The Dr even called my husband to check on me and my comfort level which was very kind and caring. I will continue to recommend Dr. Barach to friends and family :)

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Excellent Experience with Dr. Barach, Would Recommend to Anyone! - Schenectady, NY

Dr. Barach took his time during my initial consultation to explain everything that I would need to know about my surgery (for both before and after). I'm very happy that he didn't push me into having other procedures done that I wasn't interested in. He also made sure that I had tried to loose the extra weight in my problem areas instead of just running in to have surgery. His staff was very friendly and made me feel at ease. After my surgery, he took the time to make sure everything was going well and answered any more questions I had.
