My name is Paul. I have had fifteen knee operations due to football when i was young, including four total knee replacements. In 2016, my knee became infected due to a very nasty staph infection. I needed a new ortho as i did not trust going back to prior surgeon. Dr. Mar accepted me as a patient and did a two phase replacement where my knee was taken out and left out for four weeks before being replaced. Dr. Mar very thoroughly explained risks and answered ALL questions very thoroughly.

I was referred to Dr. Mar for hip joint treatment options. Dr. Mar's office did not contact me. It took over 6 weeks to get an appointment. Dr. Mar spent 5 minutes with me. He was only interested in scheduling a total hip replacement. He said Call us when you want to schedule that. Without measuring, he said my left leg is longer, actually my right leg is 5/8 inch longer. I found another ortho who has less invasive treatment options.

Dr.Mar is an AMAZING Dr. he is very caring and gets right to the point. He wants to take care of your issues and doesn't want you waiting long in the room when you get to his office like most Dr's he will get you in and out of the room in less than 10 mins. :). If you get denied Surgery he will keep having you come back and bugging your insurance til you get approved he is not a Dr to give up on hat your needs are :) that's what I love about him he fights for you.
