One of the best doctors I've seen for my back pain. He took his time to explain my symptoms and nature of injury. His staff was very friendly and answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend Dr.Marks to my friends and family.

Doctor's office runs a mandatory drug test prior to seeing the doctor. Never heard of this. Most doctors trust the list of current medications that you provide. Lab billed $8,300 to run two tests - one to check for drugs and the other to verify the negative test. Ridiculous.
