About this Provider

When Dr. Marcelin Charles was in elementary school, he would sketch the human body. That was likely the start of his medical interest. “I don’t know how it got into my heart,” he said. “I cannot remember a time in my life that I didn’t want to be a doctor.”

An avid reader and learner, Dr. Charles, who was born and raised in Haiti until he was 14 years old, was eager to learn. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, and at the age of 24 he received his medical degree from New York University. “I was always in a hurry to get it done,” he said.

As a family physician, Dr. Charles has a passion to spend time with his patients, to understand their medical problems and to provide recommendations to improve their health or to keep them healthy. “My goal is to meet people’s medical needs when they come to the office. My forte is preventive health care. I would like to take care of a patient’s heart attack before he or she has one.”

It can be a challenge to change a patient’s habit. When they cooperate and succeed, Dr. Charles feels a sense of accomplishment.  Dr. Charles enjoys the variety of patients he cares for, young and old, men and women. “Being a doctor has become part of my chemistry. It’s my joy of living. It’s my calling.”
