I had him perform a rhinoplasty/septoplasty on me and he did a great job. Just what I expected, it went well and it looks great.

I had a rhinoplasty/septoplasty with Dr. M 1.5 years ago, but the results were not what I was hoping for. Dr. M provided two additional revision surgeries until we accomplished exactly what I wanted. I am so happy with the results, and I wouldn't change anything in my experience with him. He is a very warm, compassionate, caring doctor, who always puts his patients first. Not only that, he is also the best at what he does. You will not be disappointed!

Dr. M is super friendly, very insightful, recommends the lowest cost option that fits your goals and is honest about expectations and what improvements can be done. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

He has such a wonderful bedside manner! He really cares about his patients and does wonderful work. He will listen to your concerns and answer all of your questions. I just can't say enough good things about my Dr. and his staff! They are all so caring.

At no time did we feel any concern or apprehension.The doctor was thorough and understandable in his explanation, and alleviated any concerns before we could have them. He was easy to talk to and very personable.

This surgeon listened to what I was hoping to achieve by having cosmetic surgery done. He made professional recommendations that he believed would accomplish my goals for better vision and appearance.

Dr. Marcus treated me with exceptional quality and care. He became very accessible to reach and after the surgery when I developed a small infection, Dr. Marcus took charge of the situation immediately and the matter was resolved quickly.

I consulted with 3 surgeons before finally discovering Dr Marcus. I'm glad I waited, because I can't imagine trusting anyone else to work on me.

He is everything a patient could ask for in a surgeon. Knowledgeable, friendly, caring, honest, and skilled. All follow up appointments have been covered by the original cost as well. I scheduled my appointment shortly after meeting with Dr. Marcus. I know he is very busy, but he ALWAYS took the time to answer any questions I had. You will feel like you are his only patient. I really cannot say enough good things about him and my surgery experience.

Dr. M is professional, knowledgeable, and respectful. I am a very strong individual, but this year I have also experienced great vulnerability. Dr. M has been appropriately responsive to both. I must have had a million questions, to which, he answered all of them. I couldn't ask for anything more in a surgeon!

I recently talked to "patient relations" to see if another Dr. from this facility could look at the problem and fix it. I was sent a letter that more or less said too bad, if you want it fixed, pay for it yourself. So, if you need any surgery on your face and want it to look natural, please find a surgeon who will stand behind his work or send you to a Dr. that will correct his work. I understand mistakes can be made, but they should also be corrected.

He was very personable and he made the experience better and satisfying than anyone else could. He showed true concern and you can tell he actually cared about you. When I went to UW Transformations, I felt a sense of indescribable relieve! Dr. Marcus brought me to the realization that the plastic surgery is a very sought after business and there were everyday people like me that had rhinoplasty procedures done. He did a great job at making me feel comfortable and less guilty about my decision. I defiantly would recommend Dr. Marcus to handle your case... he even allowed my favorite singer, Michael Jackson to be playing while of was going to sleep! My happiness defiantly exceeds my expectations. And to anyone that feels embarrassed or vein about consulting with someone, it's comforting to know that this is their job, and they will never judge you.

He is highly qualified and his surgical skills are top-notch and cutting edge. I would ask him questions about some new procedure I read about and he always was able to tell me about it, the research and data on it, the pros and cons and whether he thought I would benefit from it. I chose him for his skills and answers to my questions, but to my good fortune, it was his bedside manner that puts him above the rest. He is kind and caring and treated me as if I was his only patient. He patiently took the time to answer ALL my questions ( which probably numbered 100s) and never made me feel rushed. Actually, during consults if I got concerned I was taking too much time asking too many questions, he told me several times "I'm not in any hurry-ask all your questions" He genuinely wants to make you happy with the results. This isn't lip service- he goes above and beyond. Offering to come in on weekends to perform services to speed healing, emailing weeks later to see how I'm doing, promptly answering e-mail questions and offering tweeks or minor revisions to get it just right. It really gave me a sense of security and calm to feel that he would address any concerns I had. I've never had personal attention like this from any Dr. I am very happy with my results and my surgeon. I would highly recommend Dr Marcus to family and friends or anyone. If I need to, I will use him again in the future! Definitely One of the Best in The Midwest!!

Dr. Marcus has wonderful bedside manner. He was readily available to answer questions as well, which spoke volumes. I wasn't too pleased with the staff following my procedure when I had an infection and Dr. Marcus was out, however, Dr. Marcus was always very caring and tentative. Wait times for appointments were great before procedure but usually quite long (20-60 min.) for follow ups. Having worked with another plastic surgeon for over a year, Dr. Marcus seemed most competent, caring, and experienced, leading me to choose him. It was a fantastic decision. I also had some functional issues with my nose that Dr. Marcus fixed. He was very patient with me, answered my questions, and all of the staff made me feel safe, which was one of the most important things to me. I would highly recommend him, whether it's for cosmetic or functional purposes. I spoke to several surgeons but no one made me feel as comfortable as Dr. Marcus, which is why I chose him. Further, the clinic was fully staffed and equipped should anything go wrong, which it didn't. Overall, though, I'm very pleased and happy I went through with the procedure with Dr. Marcus.

I chose after Dr. Marcus by reviewing his education, his affiliation with a top U.S. hospital, the fact that he does research and teaches. I read his research articles. I had a free consultation with him. I did pay for other consultations but after careful consideration, I went with Dr. Marcus. I also toured their surgical facility. I am an R.N. and have worked in operating rooms. I felt that the anesthiogists were top notch and that is important. Some plastic surgeons rely only on a nurse and themselves during the surgery. I did not feel comfortable with that situation. I was able to e-mail Dr. Marcus and he always responded to my questions. I want to thank everyone from office staff to nurses to Dr.Marcus. They are professional and personable at the same time. I gave five stars to all the categories above because that is just what this experience was and is ( I am still going back as Dr. Marcus requests this, and I think that is so great). He is a skilled and caring doctor. I would love to post a picture but I cannot get this website to do this.

He is very good at Photoshop.

Dr Marcus listens and then presents a plan to attain the outcome you envision. He is a facial surgeon only which was important to me. He and the entire staff are very professional but put you at ease. He would respond to emails in a very timely manner and take time at consults and office rechecks to answer your question. The entire experience was very good and I highly recommend Dr Marcus. He is in demand so schedule your procedure well in advance.

Nice guy. Always wears a nice suit. He could tell I was a little worried the day of the procedure and did his best to reassure me. I appreciated that.

Dr. Marcus goes above and beyond from start to finish. He is professional and caring. He is serious about making sure you have the best experience possible and goes out of his way to take care of you. I am confident if I ever need anything in the future with regards to my surgery or other needs he will take great care of me.
