The Doctor

Dr. Andrew Maciak
Maciak Chiropractic
1081 Paulison Ave. 
Clifton, New Jersey 07011

Dr. Andrew Maciak was born in Lodz, Poland, the second largest city in Poland. He has been living in the United States since 1963. He graduated with honors from East Side High School, Newark, NJ, where he’s also lived. Dr. Maciak received a bachelors degree in sociology from Upsala College in East Orange, NJ.

In 1972, Dr. Maciak joined the Newark Police Department. For a number of years he worked as a detective assigned to the Intelligence Unit’s Organized Crime Squad. He received several commendations for his services to the department and the community.

Nevertheless, after many years of service, Dr. Maciak realized that people still need him- but now in a different field. Therefore, he pursued a career in chiropractic medicine. Again, he graduated with honors, receiving his doctorate degree in 1983.

After years of servicing the Newark community, he decided to move permanently to Clifton, NJ. His decision was motivated by his Polish heritage and the Clifton community’s need for a highly qualified, Polish speaking healthcare provider.

Dr. Maciak realized that there are many Polish immigrants who care about their health, but most of the time, find it difficult to visit a doctor because of the language barrier. He wanted to provide medical attention to Clifton and neighboring residents who really need his services.

Dr. Maciak’s practice provides a complete range of services, the highest quality care, and flexible hours to meet the needs of the community. In short, he is providing progressive health care for a hard-working community.

Surely, this doctor loves to serve the people. He certainly does put people first.
