Dr. Marcus A. Platz

Dr. Marcus A. Platz began practicing at Choice Chiropractic in May 2016 after graduating from Sherman College of Chiropractic. While attending Penn State University and Sherman of Chiropractic, Dr. Marcus was a teaching assistant in anatomy and biology, graduating with a Bachelor’s in Biology with distinction and as a Doctor of Chiropractic.

During his time as an Emergency Medical Technician, Marcus developed a love for helping others in need, and a desire to see those in distress return to their optimum health. He is grateful for his experience in athletics and emergency medicine, as it has exposed him to a full spectrum of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions.

Throughout his clinical training, Dr. Marcus contributed to the patient education health program, focusing heavily on helping patients understand the body’s innate potential. Dr. Marcus currently resides in McCandless where he enjoys playing golf, participating in team sports, is an avid outdoorsman, and loves spending time with his family.

Our holistic approach helps individuals
reach and maintain their full potential.


The human body is incredibly intelligent and resilient. As we go through our lifetime our body will experience stresses that can affect our health. Everyone deserves to live in a body that works well and lasts a long time. Our goal is to serve our patients by giving them true “health care” that respects the body and helps it heal itself.
