Our Bariatric Surgeons

Meet the surgeons at Barix Clinics

 The Barix Quality program is built on experienced board certified physicians and specialized teams who are dedicated to caring for the bariatric patient. In fact, Barix Clinics surgeons focus only on weight loss surgery and must pass a rigorous training program to ensure they meet our requirements. They must even pass a peer review on a regular basis. Our team of physicians also have extensive experience in special diagnostic and post-surgical assessment skills, which benefit patients greatly.

What patients are saying about Barix surgeons:

“What can I say about Dr. Taylor, he's the best. He made sure I was on track, answered any question (no matter how stupid it seemed) and kept reassuring me that everything would turn out great. And guess what? It did!” – Jeff K

“Dr. Poplawski was very tuned into my past domestic violence issues, and made sure that I was in the right place mentally. That made me feel like he really cared about me, and was not just doing another surgery.” – Melanie D.
