Dr. Marsh saved my daughters life! She went from 9 seizures every night and a couple day seizures most days for 8 years to seizure free 5 years now! She went from sometimes bedridden on medications and homeschooled to immediately getting her GED, and now living at Oklahoma State University as a Sr. and majoring in Pre Vet and minor in Micro Biology. She had been to several level 5 out of state epilepsy hospitals that could not help her. We didn’t give up, and found Mayo Clinic Rochester MN (which is amazing) and the RIGHT surgeon. Dr. Marsh knew we were ready and gave her the best chance possible at a successful surgery knowing the major risks involved. THANK YOU for giving my daughter her life back Dr. Marsh and Mayo Clinic.

We found Dr. Marsh to be superb and confident surgeon. He speaks honestly and had a rather calming way when he described the surgery. Dr. Marsh listened to our thoughts, concerns and questions and actually put us at ease. My daughter two brain surgeries, first an SEEG then a month later had part of her brain removed in hopes of stopping her lifelong battle with seizures. He explained everything in detail and we never felt rushed. He stopped by my daughter's room every day following the surgery and was very encouraging. His resident assistant was also very good and had an excellent bedside manner. He spoke very highly of Dr. Marsh as well. My daughter and I told Dr. Marsh how very grateful we were for what he had done and then we saw his humble side. We would highly recommend him, we truly don't know if you can find a better surgeon.

During my hospital stay Dr. Marsh was thorough and straightforward. He takes the time to explain your diagnosis and answer your questions. He has a nice nurse. But I wasn't impressed with his Resident at the time. She wasn't so honest, thorough or friendly.

We loved working with Dr. Marsh. He has incredible experience to bring to our case and my cervical spinal cord surgery was handled as good as it could be. While he is a man of few words, as time went on, he began spending more and more time with us. We were very pleased and would recommend Dr. Marsh!
