    Dr. Marcel is the kindest and most considerate Doctor especially for someone who was scared to death to face a colonoscopy. The minute you hear his voice right before the procedure you calm right down. He is thorough and explains everything in depth. His office staff Pat and Sandra are great. I recommend Dr. Marcel highly! Maurene Campbell

    Dr Marcal has been my doctor for almost 32 years and I have nothing but the utmost praise for him. I'm sure it is hard for anyone to have gastro-intestinal issues but if you do, Dr Marcal is the person I would want doing the exam. He has remarkable ability to relate to patient & family and exhibits a compassionate presence. I have referred friends and family to him with excellent results!

    This week I was admitted into Winchester Hospital for gastrointestinal issues. During my stay I had (2) procedures under his care. My overall experience was negative. I found him to be completely unprofessional. While in his care, I felt he didn't actively listen to my concerns but rather dismissed them. No bedside manner at all. I was spoken down to when I asked questions about my health. Being admitted I was shocked by the lack of communication between staff and patient.

    The Doctor woke me up during my colonoscopy to questions. Then he was hostile when I answered. I felt violated and attacked. I would not trust him.
