The bariatric dietitians at New Jersey Bariatric Center® play a vital role in your weight loss journey. Both medical and surgical weight loss patients meet with a registered dietitian on their very first appointment. Our dietitians do an in-depth interview with you to see what your eating habits are like and to pinpoint trouble areas. They will set dietary goals and be there for follow-up before and after surgery. After you reach your weight loss goals, our bariatric dietitians are available to offer support and guidance to keep you on the path of good health.
