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 County. 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.
