Dr. Christina Markar, DC
Dr. Markar is a kind, caring, and driven doctor who knows that life's struggles only strengthen our desire to succeed and overcome adversity. has been involved in chiropractic for many years. It helped change her health and her life. Throughout her childhood, she suffered from allergies, which constantly kept her out of school. Upon starting a job working front desk at a chiropractor's office, she once again was getting sick. Dr. Darlene (the chiropractor she worked for) urged her to try chiropractic care. Like most, she was nervous/apprehensive. Yet after her first adjustment, she knew she just experienced something life-changing, and she wished to share this feeling with the world. Dr. Christina Markar is one of six children, born to Tony and Samia Markar, both immigrants, who came to this country with nothing, and worked their way up to owning two jewelry stores and a wonderful home in Rockaway, NJ, where Dr. Markar grew up. Dr. Markar's parents always taught their children that with hard work and perseverence, anything can be accomplished. Dr. Markar always loved helping others, which led her to decide to continue her education. She went on to attend New York Chiropractic College in January 2011. Dr. Christina Markar worked in the admissions office, giving tours to prospective students because she was very proud of her career and school choice, and wanted to help others do the same, while enjoying the enthusiasm and excitement the prospective students shared with her. Dr. Christina Markar graduated New York Chiropractic College in August 2015. She loved Morris County so much that she decided to open in Ledgewood, NJ to make her own roots.

Dr. Marker is an excellent chiropractor. I have known her for many years and find her to be a warm and caring doctor. She answers questions with easy to understand language. She relieves my pain and provides good information on nutrition and exercise.

I have known Dr. Markar for many years and have seen her many times for chronic back and neck pain since she opened her office. Fortunately, she has helped end my pain. Time at her office is well spent not only on treatment but information on wellness, exercise regimes and diet are readily available. She has the newest equipment and in addition to chiropractic, offers appointment for massage, acupuncture treatments and yoga. She is personable and has a nice way with patients.

Going on 20 years in construction has taken a deep toll upon my body not just physically but mentally as well. Dr. Markar showed me that one doesn't have to live like this. I must admit that I was very apprehensive about trying chiropractic care, but Dr. Markar understood and listened about my concerns and addressed all my fears & questions, and 1 by 1 slowly I've noticed a difference & that we don't have to live in pain everyday and for that I am very grateful.

When I come to my appointments each week Dr. Markar greetings me with a hello and when I leave will say good-by and gives me a hug. She does ask how I'm feeling, if I have any pain or if anything is bothering me. She is good at explaining things and listens to me if I have a question. She is good with all of her patients. Would I recommend her to anyone the answer would be yes. She is so good with people of all ages from the young to the Senior citizens.

I had a difficult time picking things up from the floor. I would let 3 or 4 pencils fall on the floor before picking them up. Thanks to Dr. Christina and her wonderful staff, I can pick up anything including pencils with no problems. Thanks for making me complete again!
