Very awesome physician. Dr. Alcala-Marquez was very good at explaining X-rays, MRI, CT images. Very thorough in explaining corrective and surgery procedures. Dr. Alcala-Marquez is very friendly, and always a bright cheery personality. Twin Cities Spine Center, Dr. Alcala-Marquez, surgery team, and the whole Allina Medical Health team-they all have very beautiful hearts. I was treated very well. I'm very happy with the service I received. Very professional and courteous.

I could write any other comment and tell you that this doctor knows what he is doing, he does but I am here to tell you who is his as person. Since I met Dr. Alcala-Marquez he has been nothing but kind to me and treated me as an equal. He has always approached me with Kindness,respect,and courageousness. Not once did I lose confidence in what he told me, made everything seem easy, that nothing make with hardship. Because of that I was able to put my faith and trust in him.
