    I really appreciate the candid and transparent way in which Dr. Marsella presents information. Being diagnosed with a brain tumor is shocking and emotional, and it really helps to have someone caring for you that 1) truly cares about your well-being and 2) discusses your procedure in a logical manner. His humility in consulting other surgeons on the best approach for my surgery spoke volumes about his leadership skills and his desire to attain optimal results. A top surgeon in his field!

    I had spinal surgery one year ago and found him to be truly the best. Kind, considerate, explains condition extremely well. A wonderful overall person plus his staff is so very helpful and kind.

    I would recommend Dr. Marsella to anyone. He took his time to be thorough, explain my predicament and the best course of action. I ended up undergoing surgery and felt very confident going in that things would go well, it seems Dr Marsella is a bit of a rockstar among the staff at Phoenix Baptist Hospital and everyone seemed to agree that I was very lucky to have ended up with him since I didn't really have the option to shop around for surgeons. I'd go on but I've run out space...

    Dr. Marcella performed back surgery on me. The results were great. He is a very compassionate and skilled surgeon. He also has an awesome staff. Very personable and helpful.
