Especially knowledgeable and a great listener. He replaced both of my hips in 2013. While this was very challenging for me, my dealings with Dr. Markham was seamless. Exceptional staff as well.

I got excellent care from Dr Markham from the initial consult, through my surgery and initial recovery and now for scheduled post op checks. He was thorough, caring and is extremely competent and I’ve had excellent results.

Amazing Dr., he saw me when no one else would. He even called my four children into the appointment to let them know how the procedure worked and what they could expect after during my healing time. I had an L4-L5 spinal fusion at 39 years old because of severe degeneration due to a previous herniated disc and arthritis. I haven’t had any issues since surgery 3 years ago and feel like a new person and am able to do everything I could do before I had back issues. My numbness and pain are gone!

Dr. Markham was not interested in my problems. He did not listen to my complaints, he did not perform any type of physical exam and he accused me of lying. He stated that my injury could not cause the pain I was experiencing and he could not do anything for me. He told me to join a gym or health club.

I have many surgeries for degenerative arthritis over the last 20 years. I think he is wonderful and would recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr Markham told me I was extremely overweight and until I loose at least 50lbs there is nothing he could do for me.when I ask to see another doctor Dr Markham told me no other doctor in that office would see me.

He minimized my pain, stating my x-rays showed mormal degeneration for a 50 year old. Im 47. You can't always gage osteoarthritis pain by x-rays. He said three times that I could go back to an orthopedic I saw six years ago to get another cortisone shot because he didn't perform them. He referenced my insurance noting the $50 co-pay and said therapy would be expensive, I noticed a Medicaid payment orthorization and at least 20 old people in the physical therapy room. Told me to take Mortin.

Can't recommend Dr Markham. Doesn't know what to do if there are complications in your case. Just hopes it (and you) will go away.

I was completely disgusted of the care and attention. I was experienced progressively worse back pain and issues. He didn't listen did a quick test and ordered an x ray that I knew wouldn't show me my problem. I Waited 3 weeks just to be told I don't know what the cause of your back pain. How can a Dr not have any possible explanation for your pain. He didn't want to know. He rushed me and sent me away. Even I know numbness in butt and feet is associated with nerve issues.Talk about an Oath.
