Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

This is the absolute BEST office i have ever visited for my children! The staff is so friendly, efficient and helpful. Dr. Marcus is the most thorough physician I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. He took his time with both of my kids, answered every one of our questions in GREAT detail and really seems to be doing his absolute best to serve his patients. He's very knowledgeable, witty, and put both of my kids at ease from the moment he entered the room. I would highly recommend this office and Dr. Marcus to anyone looking for an excellent pediatrician! I wish he could be my doctor!

Professional; Gives accurate diagnoses and thorough explanations, Terrific bedside manner; Friendly- All four of my children were patients of Dr. Richard Marcus. Two were athletic (gymnastics and tae kwon do which yield higher sports related injuries). Dr. Marcus was able to care for and properly treat them and maintain excellent health from infancy through young adulthood. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.

Dr. Marcus is attentive and gave 100% of his time and attention to my concerns with my kids. Helped us with both the physical well being of our three kids, but also the mental well being. Great bed side manner, kids like him so much they want to go in to see him when they are well! Takes our late night calls and was always available. Couldn’t ask for a better pediatrician!

I have been taking my kids to see Dr. Marcus since they were born (over 6 years) and I went there primarily because both of my nephews who are adults now were patients of Dr. Marcus. All I can say is that Dr. Marcus is the best pediatrician. Although the wait times could be long, it's totally worth the wait because in the end my kids are worth it because I know they will get the best care from Dr. Marcus. He is very patient and compassionate and he explains everything with such detail.

Dr.Marcus has been taken care of my daughter since the day she was born. He is excellent with children, professional, caring and knowledgeable. He is always willing to listen and give advise. My daughter still goes to him for her checkups even though she is 19 and in college. Highly recommend him.

First thing that made me very uncomfortable was he insisted on my daughter taking off her shirt for her exam. Every other pediatrician usually places the stethoscope on top of or under the clothes. In all the years aside from being an infant, have never been asked to disrobe her. Also he is very condescending and uses a lot of finger gestures. I felt very belittled and like a child myself.

Haven't been happy since they switched locations. Never receive calls to confirm appointments. Last visit felt he did not interact well with my child. Sometimes the way things are explained are confusing and vague. Will be taking children elsewhere from now on.

I took my 18 month old to see Dr. Marcus for his well visit and it was our first time taking him there. I am very happy with his services. He took the time to explain everything we needed to know about our son's development and needs. He was very patient with our son at the time of his examination.
