I took my 5 month old to see Dr. Marcus due to constant spitting up and poor weight gain. He and his nurse, Meredith are phenomenal. They were very detailed, patient and really listened to all of my concerns and questions as well as provided a very thorough plan of action to help my baby. I am so glad that we found this practice and are very thankful for their help.

Outstanding!! While certainly lucky and blessed that our son's condition is going to be manageable, it's been a long time that I met somebody like Dr. Marcus who takes time to explain things and answer questions. What I would call his bedside manner towards us and my 16 year old son - possibly the best I've ever seen.

My sister was a patient of his for about 5 years before I ever saw him. My sister and mom always had great things to say about him. Then I finally went to him when I began having stomach issues. He was amazing. He takes a topic (poop) that no one likes talking about and just makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed. He was so nice and always made sure to follow up when needed. The office was always very good about returning calls. Highly recommend him for any kids with gi issues.

When I was sick back in 2010, no one could figure out what was wrong with me. Until I came and saw Doctor Marcus...I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. And I stayed with him for the next 5 years. Marcus always made sure to thoroughly explain everything to me, and was descriptive as we tried various medications for my condition. He is EXTREMELY knowledgeable about everything GI, and is great with his patients. And while most people fear doctors jumping to the most drastic measures possible, Dr.

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Marcus! He has been treating my son for Eosinophilic Esophagitis (say that 10 times fast) for 4 years. He used to gag and vomit with many meals, and we were at a loss. Due to Dr. Marcus' care, he is able to eat normally and enjoy life as a regular 6 year old. Love Dr. Marcus and his staff!

I like Dr Marcus, he treats both of my kids. But to spend over 90 minutes in the waiting room twice in under 6 appointments (whilst more than a dozen go in ahead), not acceptable. I wouldn't object if they were apologetic, or the nurse wasn't so curt, or if I didn't have to listen to the medical staff having social conversations during work hours when they're running behind. It's enough to make me want to find another practice.
