Poor choice for carpal tunnel surgery. Dismissive, uncaring, and my incision was sloppy and he didn't use enough stitches so it looks awful now.

I've seen DR mark 3 times now, 2 in clinic and 1 in Hospital and each time he's been rude, dismissive and generally dismissive. I definitely would not recommend him to anyone. His receptionist Amber is lovely though.
