About Me

Though born in Italy, Dr. Priscilla Tutu is proud to call Raleigh, North Carolina home. She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she earned her bachelor's degrees in psychology and romance languages with a minor in medical anthropology. After completing a post-baccalaureate program in biology at the University of North Carolina Greensboro, she earned her Doctor of Medicine degree from Ross University School of Medicine. During medical school, Dr. Tutu valued the connections she made with patients during her Family Medicine rotation the most. She chose to complete her residency training at LSUHSC-NO Ochsner University Hospital & Clinics, where she was awarded Intern Resident of the year and served as Chief Resident. Dr. Tutu finds fulfillment in providing comprehensive care while serving as an advocate for her patients. She is excited to step into her new role as a Geriatric Fellow at Wake Forest University. When not supporting Geriatric patients and their families, she enjoys exploring new restaurants, spending quality time with family and friends and cheering on the best college basketball team in the world (Go Tar Heels)!
