What People Say About Dr. Michele Markley, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
My son saw Dr Michelle Marley for a pilonidal cyst. Our first review pre-surgery noted the staff and Dr. Markley were exemplary. Our opinion since has only increased. Post-surgery, due to scheduling we visited different offices and doctors. The staff everywhere is so amazingly professional and personable. (Nikki you are wonderful. Janet and Farah, you too). Everyone always exceeded our expectations. They listen, care, and even suggest solutions. Everyone is simply a cut above. And most especially Dr. Markley. Thank you so much for your exceptional professional skill. Beyond that we felt that you cared so much. That personal concern is as important as the medical care. Our only disappointment was underestimating the time needed to "sit out" of sports. Listen to the doctor. Today, that's all forgotten. Our son is playing competitively again without a thought of the cyst. If you need a Pediatric surgeon, you simply can't do better than Dr. Markley and staff.

To preface, I had required a pilonidal cyst surgery that I was being treated for by Dr. Markley. She is a very calm, sweet, and professional surgeon who has been very helpful and informative with explaining my issue to me and my family, allowing us to fully understand what was the problem and giving us solutions that were worthwhile and helped to tame the issue until surgery. Come surgery time, she and staff had done a good job of explaining the procedure and ensuring family would be calm, allowing it to thankfully be a relatively smooth experience. Post-surgery care was also great, with regular checks to ensure the healing process was going well and advice on keeping any complications from occurring. Overall, a very positive experience with her as a doctor and she has helped make what is usually a rocky recovery as calm as possible. Thank you very much for your help, Dr. Markley!

Dr. Markley performed an umbilical hernia repair on our 9-year old daughter. Dr. Markley's knowledge, detailed explanation of surgical procedure, and warm interaction with our child were second to none. A doctor's office can sometimes be a cold and sterile environment, yet Dr. Markley and her staff delivered a dose of warmth to our family. Our daughter had no anxieties leading up to the surgery directly due to Dr. Markley's effortless soothing descriptions of the process. The office staff were genuinely pleasant, and we were seen at our scheduled time. In an age where the compassionate and caring doctor is seemingly disappearing, Dr. Markley is proof positive that they still exist.

Dr. Markley was my 3 yeard old daughter's surgeon. She had an inguinal hernia. Dr. Markley was caring and very professional and explained everything to us. The office staff is also very easy to work with and attentive to your needs. We recommend her to anyone that wants a great doctor that is also caring and patient. We couldn't be more pleased.

Had a great experience with Dr. Markley! She is a wonderful doctor, very friendly and caring. Took the time to answer all my questions and reassured me when I was nervous about my sons procedure. Everything went well! I wish Dr. Marley could be his pediatrician as well. ??
