Peggy Marcus, M.D.
Dr. Marcus grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana (go Hoosiers!), and she has practiced medicine in Atlanta for most of her career. Her passion for children’s health began at an early age, growing up in a family with a mother as a teacher and a father as a pediatrician. She earned her Bachelor of Science at Tulane University with a major in psychology and her Doctorate of Medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine. Dr. Marcus then completed her pediatric residency at Emory University and has been practicing pediatrics since 2004.
Dr. Marcus enjoys all aspects of pediatric care, and she is especially passionate about discussing child development and preventative medicine at well visits. Dr. Marcus always makes it a priority to get to know her patients and their families on a more personal level. As a mother and physician, Dr. Marcus strives to treat her patients as she would treat her own children.
In her free time, Dr. Marcus enjoys spending time with her husband and two teenage daughters. She also enjoys running, reading, baking, traveling, and being with family and friends. Dr. Marcus has been practicing in the Decatur area for the majority of her career, and she is excited to join the CMG family.
Dr Marcus is a wonderful physician! She is attentive and answers all my questions at every visit. She also addresses any areas of concern with sensitivity and care for both new mothers and newborns
My girls have seen Dr Marcus since they were first born. She is extremely talented. She is to the point and detailed. She listens and takes notes of your concerns. She will tell you her thoughts without making you feel pressured or ignorant. So thankful for her care!
We've been with Dr. Marcus for 4 years and are so happy with her! She's very attentive, observant, and thorough during our visits. And I love the way she communicates. Shes very clear and direct but also like talking to an old friend. We got lucky finding her!
Dr Marcus has been a provider for my children for over ten years. She really listens to any concerns and is thoughtful in responding. She takes in the whole picture and doesn't produce generic answers to issues- which I greatly appreciate. I moved to another practice to stay with her!
Love Dr Marcus! She kind and gentle with the kids. Listens to parents concerns and takes them seriously. Takes her time with the kids!
Our visit was incredible and informative as always. Dr. Marcus always puts us (first time parents) to ease. Thanks Dr. Marcus!
She (Dr. Marcus) is personable, focused, thorough, friendly, and I had a sense of comfort and confidence in her skill, experience, and ability in our initial visit.
Dr. Marcus was fantastic with my children and provided a thorough checkup. I was beyond pleased. She truly takes the time to ask questions about their development and answer any questions I may have. Yesterday's visit was rough on me as I'm Recovering from a procedure and she caught my slower pace and asked me how I was. Then proceeded to make sure I was following up with my docs as I should. We are so thankful for her and this practice. Our children are thriving under her care.
Dr. Marcus is the best! My kids love going to see Dr. Marcus, she makes the experience enjoyable for all.
My 3 yo son loves her and actually remembers what she tells him. Dr. Marcus is down to earth, practical, and great with kids and parents! We're grateful to have her as our pediatrician!
We followed Dr. Marcus when she switched to Children's Medical Group. She's been caring, practical, and good at listening to and addressing concerns that arise.
Love Dr. Marcus. She is very informative and attention to detail. She takes great care of my daughter. 10/10 would absolutely recommend.
Dr. Marcus is such a thorough pediatrician. She's not only knowledgeable, she's down to earth. We came to CMG after having a bad experience elsewhere. We love her personality, her ability to be straight with us - and she knows our son's history while we're discussing things at his appointments. That's important to us. We look forward to keeping her in our village.
Dr. Marcus was great! She took her time getting to know my son's medical history. She asked a lot of questions and helped figure out what was going on with his health. Thank you!
