    He made decisions without listening and based upon a physical exam that lasted only 1 or 2 minutes

    A superb surgeon. He did a phenomenal job resecting a swanoma from my spinal cord. 100% recovery. He is the best neurosurgeon in the Philadelphia area. I'm a physician and I talked to several other physicians before choosing him, he is the doctor that other physicians choose for themselves

    Dr. Marcotte gave me my life back and I'm so grateful my family physician recommended him! I had worked with a physiatrist for six years and the last year, I could not walk two blocks without resting due to cramping in my left leg. Dr. Marcotte evaluated my symptoms and studies, offered treatment, and explained outcomes. I elected to have surgery and was able to have it scheduled in a short time. Within a week postop, I was walking 35 minutes without cramping. Hiking, here I come!

    My experience with Dr.Marcotte has been very good. I feel that he's took the time to lesso to my back problems as well as the pain I've been going through. Dr.Marcotte did a complete check up and testing. Witch has led me to having surgery. I was shown a short video of what would happen in surgery. I've had surgery in the past and had never been shown what would be done so I was just so happy with the care I've been receiving from DrMarcotte and his staff. I would recommend Dr Marcotte to others
