Mercy Amua-Quarshie, MD, MPH, CMP, has been a board-certified OB/GYN since 2001 and serves patients at Dekalb Women’s Specialists in Decatur and Stonecrest, Georgia.
Dr. Amua-Quarshie was born in Ghana, West Africa, but grew up in New York, where she received her medical degree from the New York University School of Medicine in New York City in 1995. She then underwent residency training in OB/GYN at Boston Medical Center in Boston, Massachusetts. She was voted "best OB/GYN teaching resident" during her residency there and received a Berlex Labs award.
After completing residency training in 1999, Dr. Amua-Quarshie returned home to the greater New York area, where she worked in teaching hospitals and private practice settings. After marriage and a period of locum work, she and her family eventually relocated to the south, in the Dallas Fort Worth area, where she worked in the Methodist Health System as an OB/GYN hospitalist physician for several years.
She comes with years of OB/GYN experience, a passion for teaching, and a special love for obstetrics, always endeavoring to honor the sanctity of human life. She also has a burgeoning focus on the other end of the reproductive health spectrum: perimenopause/menopause management.
Dr. Amua-Quarshie was recently certified by the North American Menopause Society (NAMS) as a certified menopause practitioner.
She has been married to her loving husband for over 17 years and has two children. Dr. Amua-Quarshie also has several other non-biological children dear to her heart, whom she teaches as a lead teacher in the children’s ministry of her church.
Christian ministry is a major outside responsibility of theirs. She also enjoys gardening, cooking, and helping relatives and the community back in Ghana. Dr. Amua-Quarshie also tries her best to be healthy.
