What People Say About Dr. Akiva Marcus, MD

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.

Always waiting more than 3 hours. Ops schedule for 10 they don't start till 2pm. Staff and nurses are incompetence, ask the same questions over and over. No one writes anything down.

It's very rare you get such a thorough doctor that is so kind. Went for a routine colonoscopy, met with the doctor before and after and felt this doctor really takes his time.

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.
