Grand Opening of Our New Centereach Office!
The Bariatric and Metabolic Weight Loss Center celebrated the grand opening on June 16, of its new location at 23 S. Howell Avenue, Centereach. Director Aurora Pryor, MD, performed the ribbon cutting joined by Stony Brook supporters, facility staff, former bariatric patients and Brookhaven councilwoman Valerie Cartright, who presented Dr. Pryor with a proclamation of congratulations.
With the opening of the new facility and a dedicated team of experts on site, patients can access appointments with interdisciplinary providers all under one roof: surgeons, bariatric medicine specialist, nurse practitioner, psychologist, dietitians, and exercise specialist.
Along with the new building, the program has expanded with the addition of more specialists to its multidisciplinary team: surgeon Konstantinos Spaniolas, MD as Associate Director for the program; Andrew Bates, MD and Salvatore Docimo, DO, bariatric, foregut and advanced GI surgeons; Alice Greene, MD, bariatric medicine specialist; and Megan Bennett, RD, dietitian.
The facility is also the home of the Division of Bariatric, Foregut and Advanced GI Surgery offering evaluation and treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) including LINX®, achalasia, hernia, and procedures and surgeries for the esophagus, stomach, gall bladder, pancreas and intestine.
