Dr. Markley is an outstanding doctor and person with a wonderful bedside manner! I've had to take my young son to see her for 3 different issues, one requiring outpatient surgery that Dr. Markley performed on him when he was just 2 yrs old. She is such a sweet, soft spoken woman, who takes her time and is very thorough at every appointment. She is gentle and trustworthy. I trusted her with my son and his surgery and I would HIGHLY recommend her to all my friends and family. She really is great!

Dr. Michele Markley is an angel sent from heaven. She is kind, delicate and yet VERY professional. She talks like a psychologist, so the kids feel very comfortable taking to her and letting her do whatever she needs to make them feel better. Her staff at Coconut Creek is also amazing! They follow up the next day and are all very friendly and polite. The office is new with a beautiful contemporary look. There is even a playroom for the kids to play while we wait. : )

We have been to other offices in the past but this has been the best ever. Dr. Markley has a warm, kind manner that my daughter can relate to and a voice that totally relaxing. When my daughter left the office she was not nervous about having her planning her surgery and has much confidence in the doctor. I found the doctor and her very friendly staff so gracious and we want to thank them for an amazing experience and making us feel so comfortable. Thank you.

Dr. Markley is wonderful! We spent six months and visited numerous doctors for a solution to our daughter's deteriorating medical condition. We were definitely blessed to find Dr. Markley. Every visit, she assessed our daughters condition, discussed our next step, asked about our concerns and any questions we had. She always spoke in a manner that was understandable to us. Her patience is over the top. Our daughter is healthy and happy, as it should be, thanks to Dr. Markley.

Dr. Markley is amazing! She is so kind, helpful, and incredibly knowledgable. So many doctors rush through everything but she took the time to explain everything to me in a way I could understand her. Not that I want to rush back to the hospital any time soon, but if I do, I want her to be my doctor!

Dr. Michele Markley is the best surgeon I have ever been to! She is so knowledgeable, professional and warm. She cares deeply about her patients and explores all options with them so that they may have the best outcome. In addition, she takes the time to answer questions and listen to any concerns the patient may have. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Markley was born to be a pediatric surgeon!!!!! The time and caring she dedicates when talking to the parents, as well as the children, while they are clearly going through a stressful experience is beyond wonderful. In addition to being a miraculous surgeon, her sweet bedside manner made all the trauma less traumatic. It was a relief and a calming force to have her as my child's doctor. I owe my daughter's life to her.
