Tri State Bariatrics Philosophy:  Let our dedicated weight loss team guide you to a healthier, happier YOU!

We are a team of health care professionals dedicated to the comprehensive management of severe obesity using weight-loss surgery since 2003. Tri State Bariatrics specializes in Lap-band, Sleeve Gastrectomy, and Gastric Bypass surgery.

Our team of dedicated and experienced professionals include Nurse Practitioners, Registered Dietitians/Nutritionists, a Psychiatrist, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Registered Nurses. We believe it is extremely important to provide all of our patients with a comprehensive approach to surgery to ensure the safest and most effective weight loss journey both before and after surgery. Learning how to make the necessary lifestyle changes is not easy, but it can be done with the help of our team. We have four office locations, Suffern, Fishkill, Middletown, and Sleepy Hollow in the state of New York.
