Our bariatric program director, Cathi Roskind, RN, CBN has been a bariatric nurse since 2001.

She provides education, support and encouragement for our patients throughout this lifelong event.
At Commonwealth Bariatric Center, we offer pre-and post-op educational classes led by our certified bariatric nurse and bariatric dietitian to help ensure that you are comfortable with the procedure and with the changes in your life.
