Welcome to Our New Home

We have exciting news to share: We have officially opened our new office!

It’s located right across from Hudson Valley Hospital Center in Cortlandt Manor and is designed to serve all of Westchester photoCounty. Our new address: 1985 Crompound Road, Building C, Cortlandt Manor, NY 10567.

It’s our fourth New York Bariatric Group location. We also have offices in New Hyde Park, Port Jefferson and Manhattan.

We think you will find our new office to be warm and inviting. It has two rooms for physician consultations, two examining rooms and our main room, which is equipped with a TV and guest Wi-Fi. We also have free parking right in front of our building.

The most important feature: our compassionate and warm-hearted staff. In addition to Jackie Aldas, our receptionist, and Monica Mimoso, our Assistant Director of Physician Relations and Marketing, three surgeons will be on hand to meet with patients on Wednesdays and Thursdays:

  • Dr. Shawn Garber, who helped develop the single incision lap-band and sleeve gastrectomy techniques and teaches other surgeons around the country. You may have seen Dr. Garber on TV. He has been on The Dr. Oz Show, Good Morning America, Montel Williams, ABC News and NBC News. He is widely recognized as a leader in our field.
  • Dr. Galo Grijalva, who received his training at Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center in Brooklyn, before joining the U.S. Air Force, which gave him the opportunity to co-found a comprehensive bariatric surgery program and train with one of the country’s pioneers in anti-reflux surgery, Dr. Charles Filipe. Dr. Grijalva has more than 14 years of experience in advanced minimally invasive surgery.
  • Dr. Eric Sommer, who created the first bariatric program in southeastern Connecticut at Lawrence and Memorial Hospital in New London. He trained at Boston Medical Center and completed a fellowship in advanced laparoscopic, bariatric and robotic surgery at Hackensack University Medical Center under the direction of world renowned surgeon Dr. Garth Ballantyne.

In addition to our in-office consultations, we will be holding monthly seminars at the Hudson Valley Hospital Center in the Wagner Conference Room.

Our new location is part of our commitment to be there when and where you need us.

No matter where you live in the New York area, if diets and exercise have not worked for you, we invite you to make an appointment to see one of our surgeons at a location near you by calling (516) 616-5500, fill out our contact form or, if you prefer, click on “Live Chat” in the upper left corner of your screen to have a conversation now.

There’s no time better than now to take the right steps toward a healthier future.

Thomas' success story

I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man.

Everybody treated me like a king. The day of surgery, I was excited. The hospital couldn’t be any nicer. I went in for surgery. An hour later, I came out a new man. My recovery was awesome. I was out of bed that day. My wife and kids were my motivation on getting this surgery. They are my whole life. I’m happy I’m going to be around for them.

Nicole's success story

I hit my goal weight ... and I feel fabulous

I had the gastric bypass. I am Type 2 Diabetic and I wanted to gain control of my sugar. I hit my goal weight in about 5 and half months and I feel fabulous. The procedure has completely changed my life for the better because it has empowered me as a middle aged woman that I can really do everything and anything that I want to do. I don't put an age on anything. I don't say I'm too old for something.

Robert's success story

I was tired of the way I looked. I was tired of the way I felt.

I knew if I didn't change something soon, I was going to be in a lot of trouble. The consultation process was a lot easier than I expected. I was met with open arms. I was treated like I was the only patient here. Not only did they answer all of my questions, they had questions for me to make sure I was the right candidate for the surgery. After surgery and that weight started dropping off, my life started changing for the better.

Samantha's success story

I feel like a completely different person.

I had the gastric sleeve procedure. The driving factor behind me getting this procedure was my health. I didn't feel good physically or mentally. I had joint pains, even standing was difficult sometimes. Emotionally, this surgery completely turned my life around. I have so much more confidence. So much more happiness. I feel like a completely different person. I feel stronger. I feel able to accomplish more.

Eileen's success story

It saved my life.

The driving factor behind me getting my procedure was that I couldn't get up off the floor with my granddaughter. That was my why. That was my big reason for having this surgery done. After surgery, it was a little bit of a struggle with what to eat. What you put in your mouth that you don't even think about. You don't think about what you're eating or how you're eating and portion size. It's what I do now every single day. The procedure has changed my life in so many ways. It saved my life.

Brittany's success story

I am totally comfortable in my own skin.

I think I always grew up identifying myself as less than other people because I was fat. I decided to tackle that and just live my life. I had a sleeve gastrectomy. It changed how I view myself. How I communicate with people. I'm able to be much more of myself and live the life I always thought I should have been living. I am totally comfortable in my own skin. You have the tools you need to succeed here.
