The Center for Weight Control

The Prima CARE/St. Elizabeth's Center for Weight Control

Prima CARE is pleased to introduce the Prima CARE/St. Elizabeth's Center for Weight Control in Fall River.

This comprehensive program for weight management represents an affiliation of Prima CARE's Endocrinology Division and St. Elizabeth's acclaimed Bariatric Surgery Program.  Prima CARE now offers our patients the combined benefits of diet, exercise, behavior modification, and weight-loss surgery -- all designed to achieve your goal of weight loss and improved health.

Prima CARE's Endocrinologist, Dr. Tamer Yacoub, works alongside Drs. Anthony McCluney and Nicole Pecquex in providing the safest and most effective medical and surgical options for weight control.  Their staff includes dedicated Nurse Practitioners, dietitians, and psychologists, who together determine your exact "prescription" for weight loss -- customized for your individual desires and medical needs.

Prima CARE/St. Elizabeth's Center offers complete medical evaluation, followed by a variety of options, including dietary options and an expert evaluation for surgical weight-loss procedures.  Drs. McCluney and Pecquex have extensive experience with "minimally-invasive" laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric banding, and antireflux procedures, utilizing the advanced surgical facilities and staff available at St. Elizabeth's Hospital.

St. Elizabeth's Center for Weight Control is fully-accredited as a Level 1 Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery by the American College of Surgeons and the Optum organization.  The program has earned two Blue Cross Blue Shield designations as a Blue Distinction Center, providing the highest-quality specialty care available.
