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!
