   A Personal Note from Dr. Merli   

Hello! I am originally from Greenville, NC where I went to undergrad at East Carolina University (Go Pirates!), and went to medical school at the Brody School of Medicine. I came into medical school knowing that I wanted to be a family doc. My interests include women’s health, teen health, geriatrics (and everything in between!). I also enjoy international medicine and have spent some time in South America and Africa.
