Dr. Marcus, I know you read these reviews so felt this is the best time to contact you. I saw you back in January last year maybe another appt. but not sure. You ordered a kit stool for me because I heard you mention it to your staff. My colonoscopy isn't due til I'm 75 and I'm 71 now. I never got it. I really don't want it. It has been over a year but my complaint is I never received it. On another note - Humana Pharmacy has been calling your office for a mail order of Prilosec for me with no success so they called me today. I called your office today for this prescription and got a voice message. Not too impressed with both of these issues. Hope I can get some sort of response. thank you

Dr. Marcus is one of the best doctors. My nurse colleague recommended him for colonoscopy. He found a growth which would normally be difficult to find. Meticulous, genuinely caring. Because of him I am now recovering from surgery. If left untreated could have developed into serious consequences later on. So grateful for him. He is a doctor who joined the profession for the right reasons. To help people. Thank you.

Dr. Avika Marcus is an oustanding doctor who takes the time to explain what is going on and how he plans to treat it. Not to mention his warm and friendly personality. But before choosing a doctor take the time to read his/her credentials! He is both a MD and a PhD from highly regarding universities, and continues to be involved in medical research and writing. I have total confidence in Dr. Marcus.

My first impression of Dr. Marcus is very positive. Unfortunately my previous doctor did not send my medial records in a timely mannor, so Dr. Marcus didn't have a large picture of my medical care however, I felt very comfortable and look forward to my next appointment to discuss a solid treatment plan.
