Took my daughter there for scoliosis that was caused by a leg length discrepancy. Her scoliosis was 32 degrees and the discrepancy appeared to be over an inch on the X-ray. After we waited for nearly an hour, he decided to stop by our room. After a very abrupt appointment he concluded that she didn’t need treatment because she barely even had a difference in length between her legs. He was very dismissive of the problem, and had a horrible bedside manner. We later found she needed urgent surgery

Completely lacking in bedside manner, he bulldozed through an appointment with my child without even asking my child's name. Scared her to death, for which he showed zero empathy. He left the room after a very abrupt and rough examination without so much as asking whether we had any questions. Would never schedule an appointment with him again.

Mark misdiagnosed my son's knee injury twice since it happened two and a half years ago in a dirt bike accident. We saw Mark (I don't respect him enough to call him a doctor) who did radiographs and said nothing was wrong. My son's knee continued to get worse. Recently I took my son back to Mark because he never improved. Mark didn't bother to take a history or perform a physical exam. I requested an MRI which Mark denied. A second opinion proved that my son has had a torn ACL and meniscus
