My shoulder replacement went flawlessly...I'd highly recommend Dr. Marra! Greg M., McHenry IL

Dr Mara has performed surgery on my right shoulder that was injured in a work related injury. I had previous surgery from another Orthopedic and was referred to Dr Mara when that didn't turn out so well. I am pleased with the results, although I did not return to preinjury abilities Dr. Mara gave me much more strength and mobility than I had prior to seeing him. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone I meet who has shoulder problems. And his staff is the best.

Dr. Marra saw me after a botched surgery by another surgeon. My prior surgeon blew off my issues and complaints. My Initial visit Dr. Marra sat and spoke with me for at least 5 minutes even before he touched me. He manipulated my shoulder and immediately said an MRI was needed which I hoped would happen. Long story short without Dr. Marra and Amy's (PA) care I would still be lost and helpless.Now I at least have a fighting chance for recovery thanks to Dr. Marra skill and caring bedside manner.

This doctor barely spent any time with me. He had his assistant check me out, came in and after 90 seconds sent me off for an MRI. I had to call about the results, and his assistant called me back with the diagnosis (partially torn rotator cuff) and sent me off to rehab. She said the doc would call me, but he never did. Seems like a really arrogant guy.

Dr. Marra was professional and listened to my issue. He was calm, with a caring demeanor, and took the time to answer my questions. A resident did come in first to do the initial valuation before I saw Dr. Marra, he was also professional. Even though I arrived a few minutes late, I was seen promptly. Parking and check-in was a breeze. I would recommend Dr, Marra to my friends and family members.
