What People Say About Dr. Michael Marcus, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Marcus is like a rare gem. He saved my life and has treated so many of my family members and friend's children. He is not afraid to listen to your concerns, unafraid to battle the powers that be to ensure his patient is getting the best care possible. There are no words for a Doctor like him. He wears a white coat, well usually a really cool sports coat but really he deserves a cape. A true hero since I was a little baby and now as a grown woman, I am thankful the day I became his patient. 35 Years living because he fought with every his every breathe to help me breathe and live. Countless lives touched by his healing hands, there is no one like Dr. Michael Marcus.

I'm not sure what all these negative reviews are about, but Dr Marcus has been great with me. He always spends the time to listen to what I have to say and get a good understanding of my history/current predicament (I have obstructive sleep apnea). He has definitely guided me in the right direction.
