I haven't seen Dr. Markus in a couple of years but after reading some of these reviews I wanted to rate him. I had a terrible fall breaking quite a few bones and he treated me. Dr. Markus was caring, kind, and explained any procedures in detail to me. He was always professional and showed immense concern for what I was going through. I would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Markus came highly recommended and he is everything I expected and some. I went to Dr. Markus when I fell on ice and again three years after that visit, when I broke my ankle the second time falling down a flight of steps. Dr. Markus is pleasant and has a easy, smooth, and reassuringly personality. I immediately felt safe which is not easy for me being a registered nurse 35 years plus. Yes, I am very compliant with my treatment plan, but Dr. Markus put my ankle back together very well. THANK
