The addition of these surgeons immediately expands the availability of specialized orthopedic care that Prima CARE can offer its patients.  The orthopedic physicians are supported by a dedicated staff of Physician Assistants, therapists, and office staff to provide skilled and personalized care to patients in the office, the Fall River hospitals, and during rehabilitation.


Drs. Dubler, Katz, Mabie, Mesiha, Raukar, Smith are established orthopedic surgeons in southeastern Massachusetts and have been serving the orthopedic needs of the Fall River community for years.  Now together at Prima CARE, they offer an enhanced degree of orthopedic care designed to meet the needs of any Prima CARE patient.
