I had been seeing Dr. Marcus from the age of 15 until I was 38. He is an amazing psychiatrist who deeply cares about his patients. He is a no nonsense, very blunt person. He doesn't tell you what you want to hear, he tells you the truth. If he wasn't retiring soon, I would highly recommend him to anyone. He had definitely saved my life quite a few times.
