Health Quest adds internal medicine specialist, graduate medical education faculty

Posted: 7/15/2019

Dr. Luke Marji, an internal medicine specialist, recently joined Health Quest Medical Practice at its primary care office in the City of Poughkeepsie, 1 Pine Street Spur.

Marji will also help cultivate the health system's new internal medicine residency program as a clinical academic faculty member.

"Health Quest is on the frontlines of educating and training the next generation of physicians in modern medicine," the Yonkers, NY, native said. "We are going to transform a community hospital into a regional university medical center. What is happening here is very special, and I knew I wanted to be part of it." 

In addition to the primary care office, Marji will treat patients at Vassar Brothers Medical Center in the City of Poughkeepsie.

For the last four years, Marji was at St. John's Riverside Hospital in Yonkers as an internal medicine resident.

His professional interests include medical education, acute care medicine and raising patient awareness about preventable medical diseases.

Marji's medical education was completed at Medical University of the Americas in St. Kitts and Nevis, West Indies. He started his residency at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan, where he completed an internship in general surgery.

Marji, who is also a member of the American College of Physicians, volunteers at local events to help raise awareness for stroke, hypertension and diabetes. He is an active emergency medical technician and enjoys exercising, football and spending time with his family.
