Patient Comments (2)
in Queens, NY |
Of Dr. Marcus' competence and skill there is no argument. But, if you seek a physician who will answer your questions with patience, and treat you with RESPECT, you will be deeply disappointed. He enters the exam room exhibiting barely under the surface irritability. Woe unto you, then, if you dare to seek clarification or ask him a question. You will be met with hostility, condescension, sarcasm, and yes, he will raise his voice. I experienced this on each of my visits. It's abusive.

Caring, super bright and never in a rush. A paragon of excellence in every sense.
