Very professional and friendly. Highly recommend - second procedure.
Brierfield, AL |
Dr. Marks was God sent to me. He literally saved my life twice. Once when he fixed a bile duct leakage and blockage caused by another surgeon and secondly he found a mass on my left kidney during an MRI. I was referred to a kidney specialist and had a partial nephrectomy weeks later. It was cancer. He and his staff hold a very special place in my heart.

IMO Dr Marks does not have a good bedside manner. He immediately schedules a through colonoscopy and EGD exam with only a cursory initial appointment. Dr Marks and nurses seemed rushed in the procedure room and do not explain what is about to happen to you. During my first EGD procedure, the nurse simply shoved the mouth guard in my mouth while I tried to ask a question. A lot of my friends recommended him to me but I am searching for another gastroenterologist.

Dr. Marks is a genius with a personality that makes you laugh and feel like you matter to him as an individual. He has been my GI for 22 years and I have told him he isn't allowed to retire ever. He is always my recommendation when someone needs to see a GI!
