Can you give this doctor and his staff more than five stars? What a refreshing change from most pain management clinics!! This doctor took his time, he asked questions, paid attention to my answers, my concerns and to all of my aches and pains. He actually gave me an examination.....this was a first for me, as previous pain clinics lined me up, wrote a script and out you went...... Dr. Marks is NOT one of those doctors, and he actually has a personality! I was thrilled to find this unique doc!!

Dr. Marks was 500% better than my previous experience with another Pain doctor in Austin. He took a lot of time explaining everything he interpreted from my MRI and my history. He was excellent in the procedure execution and kept me well informed every step of the way. His PA and nurses are also very friendly and smart. I highly recommend this team.

This Dr. is AMAZING!!! We took my mother who has been in chronic pain for the last 4 years. The other Pain Dr., she was seeing just kept give more and higher doses of pain meds. So we finally said enough is enough. We located and visited Dr. Marks, it has only been one month and things are improving! He is working on eliminating the CAUSE of the PAIN and working on reducing the pain meds. This Dr. is credit to the medical profession. I wish we had done it SOONER!

Dr Marks is an excellent doctor. He makes you feel comfortable and always answers your questions to the best of his knowledge and if he can he finds out for you so your not left in the dark. He cares so much about his patients. I see him more as family now then i do my doctor. He is the best doctor you can hope for. He always makes you feel really at ease with everything you are having problems with and explains why you are having those problems. Then offers alternatives to help solve them.

Dr. Marks listens carefully, asks intelligent questions, and treats me with respect. He takes his time (often runs late so take this into consideration when scheduling). Don't be put off by his relative youth! He's brilliant, passionate, and engaged; and he stays up to date on current research. He's non-judgmental, mentally agile, and even a bit of a goofball (in a good way). Dr. Marks makes me feel like a person, not a criminal or a mental case. Now I believe I CAN live with fibromyalgia.

He was quite threatening to me, told me I had no right to be on the medicine I was on. Very judgmental!

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
