About Me

Dr. Abeles joined the Weight and Wellness Center in August 2011. She brings a wealth of perspective and experience to Signature as she was voted one of New Jersey's Top Doctors for Bariatric Surgery in 2010.  Under her stewardship, the Weight and Wellness Center is a place where patients will get comprehensive care, and be on their way to a healthier and thinner person.


It is a good day at work when: "One of my best days was our first patient reunion.  Watching everyone interact and socialize, celebrating 3,583 pounds lost.  A sign-in board was available for comments.  They left me speechless.  The only thing to do was hang it up for everyone to read.  To this day, the comments are hanging in our office!"
