Cannot go into details besides saying he treated me like a child, literally yelled at me for seeing his PA's and said they were pretty worthless if you want to get something accomplished. Will never see again. I wouldn't recommend him to my worst enemy.

I have been to multiple doctors concerning my knees over the years. Dr. Marzec diagnosed me right away and spent the time to explain the diagnosis and what it meant. He was not quick to operate but provided alternative solutions which are working extremely well. He is very easy to speak to as well. He is down to earth and does not come across as pompous. The people who I have recommended to Dr. Marzec have equally expressed their happiness of being under his care.
Dr. Marzac is one of the finest doctors that I've ever encountered. He is extremely knowledgable and spends time explaining injuries and how to help correct. He doesn't throw pills at the situation but will provide medication if necessary. The wait time can be a tad long but if you make your appointment first thing in the morning, you should be all set. I would rather wait 20 minutes for an amazing doctor than go in right away for an okay doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Marzac!
