I had been suffering with sudden onset, crippling nerve pain for almost 3 months. My first visit with Dr. Marsh he suggested I have a spinal injection. I refused.. My second visit, after an MRI, he showed me exactly where my nerve was being pinched off. I was sobbing in pain. I literally couldn't walk. Dr. Marsh said not only did i need surgery, but an L4-L5 fusion. This was right at the worst of the covid 19 pandemic. All non emergency surgeries cancelled. Somehow Dr. MARSH got me in just a few days later. I am currently 2 months out of surgery, And I could not be happier with the results. I have absolutely no nerve pain and no back ache at all. He did exactly what he was going to do and explained to me exactly what the outcome would be. And he was 100% correct. I was almost unable to walk before this surgery... And today I walked in-and-out of his office with absolutely no pain, just 8 weeks after he did the fusion. I highly recommend him!!!!

Very dismissive. Obvious that he had not reviewed my case history. Great hospital with a poor doctor. Neurosurgery Department has fallen apart following the departure of Dr. Bailes.

This a Dr who TRULY believes he's the most talented person. He truly doesn't think about the patient's condition!! He performed a surgery & what he put in DIDN'T WORK & I wanted it removed. I told my neurologist ( WITH HIM STANDING CROSSED ARMS) he sternly looked at me and responding; DO WANT TO BE SEIZURE FREE OR ABLE TO SING? Itold him i wanted it removed from me because the VNS unit forced more seizures because stress FROM that unit. Avoid him!

I saw Dr. Marsh for bad back pain. He told me it was normal degeneration of a back for a 47 year old and I had to live with it. He was rude and condescending. Treated me like I was wasting his time. I had seen a spine specialist in Virginia and found that I have bulging disks and pinched nerves. Dr. Marsh is awful.

Dr. Marsh seems to have an interest in the brain. All his written articles have been on the brain. When I saw him for issues for my back he didn’t listen about where my pain was and told me it was from a different kind of movement which was never an issue for me. He also told me to stop going to PT and go to the gym. I have a genetic condition that slowly damages the joints so I can’t go to the gym. He just doesn’t listen!

I saw Dr. Marsh for an issue I had after a work related accident. I found Dr. Marsh to be extremely knowledgeable and skilled. His bedside manner was excellent. I found all of his staff equally as pleasant. I would like highly recommend Dr. Robert Marsh for all of your Neurosurgery needs.
