Recognizing the growing need for primary care services in the community, Beaufort Memorial Physician Partners has hired another experienced physician for its Lady’s Island Internal Medicine practice.
Yvette-Marie Pellegrino, M.D., FAAFP, board-certified in family medicine and obesity medicine, comes to the Lowcountry from Mooresville, North Carolina, where she opened a successful primary care center and community-based weight loss clinic three years ago.
A graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, Pellegrino completed her residency at the Somerset Family Practice Residency Program in Somerville, New Jersey. During her 16-year career, she opened a single-provider practice in a rural North Carolina town for Health Management Associates and worked at several primary care practices in the state before moving to South Carolina.
She served as a member of the faculty at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and Wake Forest Baptist Health and was a preceptor for nurse practitioner students at East Carolina University.
Pellegrino will join board-certified internal medicine specialists Dr. Robert Vyge and Dr. Philip Cusumano and board-certified physician assistants John Garner and Eric Gearhart at Beaufort Memorial Lady’s Island Internal Medicine, located at 117 Sea Island Parkway in Beaufort. To schedule an appointment with Pellegrino or any of the providers, call 843-522-7240.
