While it took a while to get a referral appointment, I was so impressed with his knowledge and ability to evaluate my condition. He has really helped my condition and I’m so grateful. I checked with a couple of my other Drs and they said he’s the best in Columbia - I totally agree!

He has been my husband's doctor for years, and he has been great! He listens and doesn't act like he knows it all. If there is a med you don't like he'll find an alternative. Biggest problem is his receptioninist who is rude and uncaring. BUT We'll put up with her to have an awesome doctor!

I like Dr. Mariska but my doctors office and I have called for an appt. soon and I am being told it will be Sept. before I can see him. If I was not having problems that would be fine, but I am and can get nowhere with them.
