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.”

I feel that Dr. Charles will always go way above the 'standards'. I had Covid and was doing really bad so he had me go get my blood tested, the second he seen my major organ levels were through the roof he called me and had me go immediately go to the ER. After he hung up with me he called the ER and told them to take me back right away the second I got there.If it wasn't for him reacting and making me go to the hospital the way he did I guarantee I would not be here today.
