Merit Health Medical Group in Vicksburg earlier this month made a new addition to its medical staff, Dr. Niyazi Kilic, Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN).
Dr. Kilic joins us from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where he completed his OB/GYN residency at St. Luke’s University Health Network.
When asked why he decided to specialize in OB/GYN, Dr. Kilic states “Obstetrics and gynecology amaze me because I get to provide prenatal care, including first trimester ultrasounds, do well-women care, perform procedures, and counsel on all obstetrics and gynecological problems. I was impressed with Merit Health River Region’s robotic capabilities that will allow me to use high-end technology such as robotics, laparoscopy, and hysteroscopy – a real broad scope of practice.”
As to why he chose Vicksburg, Dr. Kilic states “I grew up in a town very similar to Vicksburg. It means a lot for me to have the opportunity to care for those in this community. My wife and I also like hot weather, so the climate suits us!”
Dr. Kilic is now accepting patients and his office is located in the Merit Health Medical Group OB/GYN clinic on the 1st floor of Merit Health River Region, 2100 Hwy 61 North. To schedule an appointment, call 601-883-6030.
