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.

Jamokay Taylor, MD, FACS, FASMBS

Dr. Jamokay Taylor’s patients tell us how much they appreciate his wonderful bedside manner. They quickly recognize that he genuinely cares about helping them. Early in his career, over 22 years ago, Dr. Taylor showed a special talent for complex trauma surgeries. The rewards of helping others transform their lives with bariatric surgery led him to join Barix Clinics to dedicate his career to this specialized type of surgery. After over 18 years and more than 5,000 surgeries, Dr. Taylor has become one of the finest bariatric surgeons in the world, with more successful Roux-en-y Gastric Bypass procedures to his credit than any other surgeon.

Dr. Taylor performs laparoscopic and open Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Laparoscopic and Open Sleeve Gastrectomy, Adjustable Gastric Band, Revisional Bariatric, and Adjustable Gastric Band removal procedures.

Blake Movitz, MD

Dr. Blake Movitz has a deep appreciation for both the physical and emotional sides of bariatric surgery after watching some of his own family members have the procedure. After his surgical residency, Dr. Movitz received advanced training in bariatric and minimally invasive surgery at the Mayo Clinic. A natural mentor and coach, Dr. Movitz patiently answers every question his patients have, helping them understand the changes they will undergo with the surgery and how to succeed in reaching their weight loss goals.  

Dr. Movitz specializes in minimally invasive procedures including Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, Laparoscopic Duodenal Switch, and Adjustable Gastric Band removal procedures.

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
