Dr. Mariya Zhukova (known to her patients as “Dr. Z”) is an OB/GYN at Cherokee Women’s Health.

Originally from Russia, Dr. Z became fascinated by anatomy and the human body as a teenager, and that is when she knew she wanted to become a doctor. In medical school, she chose Obstetrics and Gynecology as her specialty. She loved seeing her first delivery, and especially loved how OB/GYNs get to share that special moment with families.

Dr. Z received her medical education at Florida State University (FSU) College of Medicine, after completing her undergraduate work at FSU, where she graduated Cum Laude. She completed her residency training at WellStar Kennestone Medical Center and has training and experience in robotic surgery.

Dr. Z shares her practice philosophy and why she’s passionate about being an OB/GYN.
