A graduate of Cornell University, Dr. Dobruskin obtained a bachelor’s degree in biology and her medical degree from New York Medical College.

"I find the field of bariatric surgery to be extremely exciting and rewarding," says Dr. Dobruskin. "I am always thrilled to see the amazing transformation that patients undergo in a relatively short period of time — not just the weight-loss, but the resolution of health problems, like diabetes and high blood pressure, which contribute to an amazing new quality of life after bariatric surgery."

"I believe that successful weight-loss after surgery can only be achieved with long-term care and follow-up," emphasizes Dr. Dobruskin. "When I operate on a patient, I consider that person my patient for life."
