Andrea Branch, M.D. is a board-certified, pediatrician who is now practicing at Murfreesboro Medical Clinic (MMC). Originally from Memphis, Tennessee, Dr. Branch graduated magna cum laude from the University of Memphis, where she earned a B.S. in Chemistry. She went on to earn her medical degree from the University of Tennessee Memphis and completed her pediatrics residency at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee in 2010. For the past 12 years Dr. Branch has been practicing in Anniston, Alabama.
Dr. Branch is excited to join the Murfreesboro community and serve patients of Rutherford and surrounding communities.
Joey Peay, MMC’s Chief Executive Officer, notes, “We are thrilled to be able to add Dr. Branch to our Pediatrics Department. As our community continues to grow, it is critical that MMC adds quality physicians like Dr. Branch. As a physician with 12 years of experience, she will be able to ‘hit the ground running’ to meet the needs of her patients in this rapidly growing area.”
At a young age Dr. Branch knew she wanted to be in medicine. In middle school that decision was solidified when she was inspired after reading Gifted Hands by Ben Carson, M.D. Shortly after, she completed an internship with the first and only African American Dermatologist in Memphis at the time. After completing medical school, her love for children and feeling like a child at heart herself, led her to pediatrics. She enjoys partnering alongside parents to care for all children, newborns through adolescents.
Dr. Branch, her husband and their two girls are looking forward to being closer to family and friends and calling Murfreesboro home for many years to come.
