Dr. Erasme Coly
Tariq grew up in the Middle East – in Jordon – in a family of physicians. His dad is a physician and he has three brothers who are physicians. So it didn’t take much for Tariq to realize this was the path he would choose as well. After training in internal medicine, cardiology, interventional cardiology and peripheral intervention in New Jersey, Tariq moved to Johnson City in 2005. While living here, he found that Johnson City is a great place for a family and to raise his children.
