Dr Marcus is personable and professional. He took his time to ensure I completely understood what was going to be done and how it worked. I felt so comfortable with him and with his abilities. I drive all the way from Morgan Hill to see him, it's for a good reason. He's just an amazing doctor!

I have been seeing Dr. Marcus since 2013 for persistent pain in my right hip and back. He is the best doctor I've ever had. He listens well, is patient, encouraging, positive and very attentive. He answers most of my emails within minutes or hours, rarely longer than that.
