I've been seeing Dr. Marcus for over a year now and recently I've been not too impressed with the level of care I've received. He forgets things about me, such as the fact that he performed a D&C on me months before, and doesn't seem like he really cares about me. His bedside manner has never been there but I always feel rushed now when I'm in the room with him. Needless to say at 20 weeks pregnant I'm looking for another doctor to accommodate the level of care I'd like to receive.
I was very dissapointed the last two visits. Dr. Marcus seemed extremely rushed, did not prescribe me anything for my irregular periods, pretty much said all my labs came back normal and here I am on my period for almost a month.... will NOT be seeing him again.

I have been a patient of Doctor Marcus for 8 years and he is just the best. I have been having medical issues and he is the only one who found the cause. He cares about his patients.

I found Dr. Marcus through a co worker and switched over to him at 34 weeks pregnant. His office got me in for an appointment the next day. The staff are amazing and they made me feel right at home. Dr. Marcus is very nice and very informative. I delivered a healthy baby boy and Dr. Marcus was excellent. He visited me at the hospital and made sure that I was comfortable. The whole staff at Community Hospital was awesome and I felt right at home.
