Yana Markidan, MD, FACOG

Dr. Yana Markidan has been providing care to the women in the Princeton area community since 2012, and is highly regarded as a skilled clinician, surgeon, and an advocate for her patients. Dr. Markidan is a recurring recipient of the Patient’s Choice Award and has been interviewed by national media outlets including Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Parents, and Fit Pregnancy on issues ranging from sexual health to family planning.

After years as an OB/GYN at a large and busy group, Dr. Markidan joined Antheia in 2019, to focus on providing exceptional gynecological and women’s health care to patients in a comfortable and convenient boutique private practice environment.

Dr. Markidan’s approach to patient care is grounded in the belief that the best care requires a strong relationship between the physician and the patient, based on trust, good communication, and shared decision making. She says: “Because so much of what we do relates to our patient’s quality of life, the gynecologist has to strive to understand her patient beyond the medical symptoms, and have the empathy to appreciate the distinctive struggles, insecurities, needs, and goals that are unique to each individual. What is appropriate for one woman, may not at all be for another.”

Dr. Markidan earned her medical degree from The George Washington University School of Medicine, in Washington D.C., where she was the recipient of Rachel Morris Dominick Award: “Presented annually to a member of the graduating class who has demonstrated outstanding ability in the field of obstetrics and gynecology,” and completed her residency at the Pennsylvania Hospital, currently of the University of Pennsylvania Health System, in Philadelphia.

Although, Dr. Markidan’s patients primarily live, work or study in the local community, she regularly treats women who travel to see her from across the United States and other countries.

Fun fact, Dr. Markidan is fluent in Russian.
