Patient Comments (4)
Bethlehem, PA |
He made decisions without listening and based upon a physical exam that lasted only 1 or 2 minutes
in Philadelphia, PA |
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
in Downingtown, PA |
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!
in Croydon, PA |
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
