Biography

Dr. Marler was born in Durham, North Carolina but through his lifetime has lived in numerous places-New York City suburbs, London (England), Montreal  (Canada),  Los Angeles, Worcester (MA), Columbia (SC), and most recently Greer (SC).

In 1987 he was inspired to work with Mother Teresa of Calcutta after training in radio and television broadcasting.   He spent a year in Calcutta, India and Kathmandu, Nepal, volunteering with the Sisters of Charity.  He and local volunteers met occasionally with Mother Teresa. Dr. Marler was deeply inspired by the sister's model of charity and Christian faith. After several years of studies in Microbiology at McGill University (Canada) he was accepted into medical school.

Dr. Marler moved to Columbia, SC, in 1999 to complete a 2 year National Health Service Corps (Public Health) commitment at Waverly Family Practice on Gervais Street (Eau Claire Cooperative). In 2001 he worked as an Assistant Professor for the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of South Carolina Specialty Clinic. Dr. Marler's responsibilities included teaching Internal Medicine residents outpatient and inpatient care, as well as seeing private patients in the faculty practice. He was a frequent guest physician on WIS-TV in 2001 on the Sunrise Show hosted by Judi Gatson. In 2003 Dr. Marler was commissioned by the State of South Carolina to update South Carolina's Dept. of Transportation (DOT) medical exam form used by thousands of commercial drivers in the State. Dr. Marler worked as Medical Director of Longs Pharmacy in Columbia.  He founded a solo practice in 2003, Millbrook Internal Medicine.

After nine years of managing a successful practice, faced with the changing climate of healthcare reimbursement, Dr.Marler decided to pursue hospital based outpatient medicine. In 2013 he joined Piedmont Internal Medicine West (Mary Black Health System) in Spartanburg, South Carolina.  March 2015 Dr. Marler joined Bon Secours Medical Group in Greenville at St. Francis Primary Care Downtown, and in February 2017 Woodward Medical Center. He is a preceptor physician with VCOM-Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine of Spartanburg, SC, teaching third year medical students, and a preceptor of nurse practitioners with Bon Secours St. Francis.

Were so lucky to find Dr. Marler both my husband and I have health problems due to age. He treats us with the most kindness and care. Hope I am with him til the end.!!!!
in Travelers Rest, SC |
Dr. Marler has been my doctor for about one year. I appreciate that he is willing to work with me and my view that food is the best medicine, not prescription drugs. I like that he genuinely cares about my health and well being. Not only is he a wonderful doctor, who is very knowledgable about internal medicine, he is a good man.
in Piedmont, SC |
Dr Marler has been our personal care doctor for two years and he has been a blessing for our family. He has alway gone the extra mile to take excellent care of my family. He is very personable and he always remembers to ask me about my family. We are very blessed he is in our lives.
in Easley, SC |
Dr Marler and his staff have really been terrific for me. They are always read to help with referrals and Dr. Marler takes the time to answer any questions.
in Greenville |
My wife and I retired down to Greenville from Chicago about 1 year ago. One of the things we dreaded about the move was finding new doctors. St. Francis was recommended and I found Dr. Marler on line. We both agree he is the best and have given his name to 2 other retires - both are now seeing Dr. Marler. I would not recommend a doctor to anyone unless I was 100% satisfied with him and his practice. Hopefully Dr. Marler and I will grow older together - I don't see ever changing doctors again.
in Greenville, SC |
After dealing with a prior PCP for several years, I was pleasantly surprised to find that there are still doctors that are willing to take the time to listen to patients and concientiously deal with solutions to their health problems. He has a very pleasant demeanor and takes the time to explain the problem and answer questions. I am very happy with his service.
Greenville, SC |
I would recommend Dr Marler to anybody. He's a great dr and he takes his time with his patients and cares about his patients and answers any and all questions you might have and his whole entire staff is very nice.
in Piedmont SC |
Great DR. Tells you what is wrong with you and what's needs to be done. Takes time to answer your questions.
in Greenville, SC |
My dad was sick for a long time. He saw many specialists including a Pulmonologist because of his terrible cough. When he saw Dr. Marler he did some tests on him and figured out what his problem was! Now he is a much healthier person. I really thank Dr. Marler for caring for my dad and spending time to figure out his problem.
in Del Rio, TX |
When my husband complained of passing blood in the urine, Dr. Marler told him it was small blood vessels breaking in the prostate and basically blew him off. Now we are aggressively fighting bladder cancer. His (present) doctor does not know why Dr. Marler didn't check into it some more knowing my husband was a smoker. Please Please if you have areas of concern, get a second opinion.
Susan, if this is truthful review, I am sorry to hear your husband has bladder cancer. My prayers are that he gets prompt treatment and better. I listen to all my patients at every visit, and definitely don't "blow off" any complaints. I would never give an explanation for blood in urine as you described-makes no sense as you state it. If any patient reports blood in his urine, and/or has blood seen in urine testing I would highly doubt I would not refer him to a urologist.
in Greenville, SC |
My appointment was at 9:00 AM. I showed up at 9:05 AM because the building was difficult to find. Tried calling the office but only was able to get an automated message. Since I showed up 5 minutes late, I was turned away. This is such poor customer service. The staff was extremely rude to me and condescending. I've never been treated so poorly by a doctor's office in my entire life. This is a complaint is also against St. Francis Primary Care Office in general.
New patients are required to arrive 30 minutes ahead of their scheduled time to complete patient registration and questionnaires about their health. When patients fail to arrive on time they are kindly asked to reschedule. It is not fair to make others wait when a person is tardy. This individual clearly was unhappy and falsely reviewed Dr. Marler as though he had actually established an encounter. He chose to rate the physician 1 star on 4 questions about the physician who he never met!!!
