Hi, my name is Eeka Marshall and I moved here from Granger, Indiana. My specialty is obstetrics and gynecology. I chose my specialty because when I was five years old, I actually was watching an episode of Sesame Street and it was career day. And Mr. Gordon, he was an obstetrician-gynecologist and was delivering babies. And I told my mom after that day, I said, "I know what I want to do when I grow up." I said, "I want to be an obstetrician-gynecologist. And, she was so happy. She was like, "Wow, really?" "At the age of five, you just know what you want to do?" And I said, "Yeah." And so, I had her spell it out for me. I learned how to spell it. And then I went to my kindergarten teacher, Ms. Garrett and I told her, "I knew how to spell this big word," obstetrician was a huge word to me. And so, she listened to me spell it. And, she just made me feel like I was the smartest kid that she had ever met. So, it was like I remember it like it was yesterday.
I chose to come work at Lee Health because of their mission. I am patient-focused, patient-centered. It's all about my patients. I aim to please. But I aim to also treat them well, to give them a wholesome experience including the, I like to include the physical, the mental and the spiritual side of even medicine. So, I felt like Lee Health was right in line with my vision for my patients and my practice. When I'm not working, I like to travel. We travel a lot. I have four children. And so, my hubby and I are very, very busy. But we love to travel. I love to do sports, certain things. I like to roller blade, I like to bike ride, I walk/jog a lot. And, I like to just hang out with my family. I have a big family, so I come from a family of seven children. So, we get together a lot and we do holidays, and different events and things like that. So, I just enjoy my family.
