Learn about Dr. Marek

Care Philosophy

I am a Family Physician , trained to address the patient as a whole not just an organ system. The most rewarding part of my practice is seeing a patient take control of their health by making tough changes, like stop smoking.  Shared decision making is my practice style.  My job is to provide the information and guidance and the patient chooses what they want to do regarding their health. My expertise lies in helping patients navigate the complex health system.
