My traumatic experience
Right after I saw him leave the room with a gentle smile, I heard him yelling at his nurses behind the door. One of his residents later told me Dr. Markert often gets frustrated like that. He seems kind on the surface, but is pretty intimidating to his staff and residents.

Dr. Markert preformed my craniotomy to remove an oliogodenroglioma in 2014. He was able to clear 100% of the margins & I've little to no deficit to speak of. In addition to being an awesome surgeon, he has an impeccable bedside manner. I've recommended him to others unfortunately too many times. I've got the option to use doctors at places like Emory in Atlanta that are much closer to me. But I'd drive cross country to see Dr. Markert. He's definitely the top in the southeast, and I'm sure one of the best in the USA, as I've had opportunity to to speak with many brain cancer patients. May the Lord continue to bless him!
