Patient Comments (35)
Lakewood Ranch |
Dr. Marlowe and his staff were very attentive and took their time listening to my explanation of symptoms I'd been experiencing for months. I am confident that the tests Dr. Marlowe ordered will finally determine what has been causing my illness. Five visits to two other doctors and one Emergency Room visit did not improve my condition.

Amazing, I new instantly Dr. Marlowe was going to help me.. Kind, patient, very smart and I drove 80miles and would have driven 200.

Excellent physician and staff! Highly recommend!

I have been going to Dr. Marlowe for over 10 years. It started with an ear infection that my primary doctor kept treating with antibiotics and they didn't work. Then I went to Dr. Marlowe and found out it was a fungus and after hundreds of dollars of ear drops he treated me with the right medicine (inexpensive) and it healed after months of misery. I would highly recommend him and his staff. Nessa St James

Made appt specifically with doctor M. But saw him for less than a minute at the end. His assistant did the work. Everyone was nice and competent but why bother requesting the doctor if he doesn’t do the work.?

Doctor Marlowe treated me for throat cancer, He removed my tonsils, a lymph node and I continued my check ups with him. Its nearly 5 years since my treatment and I'm cancer free, or cancer cured, as he tells me. He's a great doctor and I highly recommend him.
in Arcadia,FL |
Great experience having Dr Marlowe take care of my nasal problems, Surgery went well, and after 2 weeks I can breathe much better. Dr. Marlowe is very easy to talk to, never seems rushed and answers all questions anyone might have.Recommended by my family doctor, I was thoroughly satisfied.

very thorough, uncomplicated and to the point

Dr Marlowe corrected a problem with an ear infection that had lasted on and off for 6 years within 5 minutes and a secondary problem with a runny nose which had been attributable to age for 10 years was corrected with a prescription nasal spray. He has extremely good diagnostic skills
Sarasota, FL |
Dr. Marlowe and his staff are great. Our pediatrician recommended him for our 6 year old who was having congestion issues and chronic ear infections. Dr. Marlowe got to the bottom of it right away and she is doing great. Thank You Very Much Dr. Marlowe!
Moore Haven, FL |
I visited Dr Marlowe for a sinus infection. The staff was friendly and efficient. The overall experience was positive and I plan to return for care in the future.
in Sarasota, FL |
Everything about my experience was positive beginning with the friendly greeting when I arrived. I was ushered into the examination room on time by a pleasant young lady who took my information. The P.A. came in a short time later discussed my symptoms and made an accurate evaluation. Dr. Marlowe listened to the description of my complaints, asked the appropriate questions, then went over the causes, cures and recommendations. I was treated like a valuable human being and not talked down to.

Dr Marlowe caught a problem that others had missed. I have been seeing him for a year now and he is consistently caring, listens well, and works with me to collaboratively develop an action plan.

Very friendly staff and doctor. Was a great experience.

After seening Tara Heburn, prescribed a medication, CVS said inconsistency in use. Pharmacist called the office, very cold and rude reception, I then called got the same rude and condescending. After many attempts to speak to Tara Heburn, the office manger (Brittney) called and ask what was the problem, I explained that I would like to clear up the miscommunication. Brittney explained that Tara and DR. Marlowe never calls, a letter stating that I look in yellow pages for another Dr. SAD

Sarasota, FL |
Very friendly. Dr Marlowe was able to diagnose my, somewhat rare, problem quickly. Very professional evaluation and prognosis. I feel very confident that my condition will be taken care of.
in Venice, FL |
I am new to the Sarasota area and was in need of a good Ear physician. Fortunately I found what I consider to be a great ear specialist with a fabulous staff. Initially my appointment was in about 4 weeks but I was asked if I wanted to be on the call list if there were cancellations. An appointment became available, I was seen in 10 days. I was thrilled by the professionalism of the staff and Dr. Marlowe. I would rate the overall experience a solid 10. Thank you. Highly recommend!
Due to hearing issues, I have been taking my boys to Dr. Marlowe for many years now. Both of them are preteens. Dr. Marlowe has done a phenomenal job not just treating them but making sure they are comfortable all the time. He is very down to earth. He laughs, makes jokes, asks them questions. It really makes them feel like he cares. As a mom, I am most grateful to have found Dr. Marlowe's office and will never take them to another ENT specialist!
in Sarasota, FL |
I could not be more pleased. He is both skilled and affable, easy to relate to and very responsive to my questions. I trust him, and his work is good. His staff demonstrates that he sets the positive tone for the practice.

great doctor,staff excellent

I was very impressed with Dr. Marlowe the first visit for what my primary Doctor said might be vertigo. He didn't think that was my problem. Ultimately, it wasn't. The last time was a follow-up appointment my ENT in Green Bay suggested I have on our returned to Sarasota. I'd had a perforated eardrum and needed to make sure it had healed correctly. Dr. Marlowe said it had. He prescribed a lotion for itching in my ears that works great!! I will be happy to tell my friends about Dr. Marlowe.

After a few years of suffering from Menieres' symptoms, I went to see Dr Marlowe and he worked with me on suppressing the symptoms. He was understanding, compassionate, and assisted me in every way possible. In addition, I felt as though I could call his office whenever the onset of the symptoms became too much for me to deal with, which is "peace of mind" (even if I never had to use the invitation). Recently, I saw Dr Marlowe and I can now say my Menieres' is in remission:) Thank you Doctor
Bradenton, FL |

I've been a patient of Dr. Marlowe for over a decade. He is a highly competent Otolaryngologist and one of the nicest doctors I’ve ever had. I have recommended him on numerous occasions and everyone I know who has gone to see him feels the same way. A great doc and a great guy.

I had been to 3 other doctors previously over the past 12 months, complaining of my ear pain. Only Dr. Marlowe was able to diagnose and explain to me what was causing the pain, and how to alleviate the pain. Thank you Dr. Marlowe.
