I had a C-section which supposedly went well but he never showed up during my 3 days stay at hospital. After 12 H. I was at home in such a severe abdominal pain that I could not move my legs then called the ambulance.Later at hospital a surgeon, an infectious disease doctor, another obstetrician, 2 neurologists came to protect him while I was in insane amount of pain laying in bed handicapped. They determined I had a Hematoma (clot). What I went through was a nightmare and very painful.

Do not trust this doctor and staff. Kind can only take you so far. Very disconnected and often do not even know which patient you are or what your history with them is. It is very dangerous when health complications arise. If you are looking for a thorough doctor whose health and safety you can trust in their hands, go elsewhere.

Unnecessary C-Section, plus left a staple in me after. Avoid.

I have only wonderful things to say about Dr. Marcus and my care throughout my entire pregnancy. He is an amazingly caring and compassionate doctor. He delivered my baby girl with the utmost professionalism. If I have another child I will happily return to him for our care. Same goes if I have to recommend any obstetrician to a loved one.
