#1. *Dr. Marks.


Good experience.


great doctor!




Very good.


My care provider really listened to what it was I wanted done. He took care to make sure I knew my options that I could get done, and what I couldn't get done


Very professional. Not warmest personality but I totally trust and respect him as my provider. #5. None given.


I can find no faulthigh praise for Dr. Marks and his staff!


Very good.


Dr. Marks and staff are an excellent team! I chose Dr. Marks by recommendation from another patient of his. I have recommended him to several other ladies over the last nine years.


Dr. Marks was incredible. He told you the truth, was confident in what he was saying, and you knew he had your best interests at heart. He made me totally comfortable with my surgery and the results were better than I ever imagined!


Had surgery prior to this latest visit with Dr. Malcolm Marks and would not hesitate to recommend him to everyone I meet - the most pleasant, professional Dr. I have ever met. Truly cared about my well being and explained all procedures carefully and understandable - he included my daughter (who drove me) in all information and explanations. In my opinion - the best surgeon ever. I want to thank you for having him on your board.


Dr. Marks has been my physician at Baptist for 16 years. I have had nothing but good experiences with this extraordinarily skilled and caring doctor.


Very positive experience, especially for an upsetting procedure needed on my face due to a rare malignancy.


Dr Marks is top notch


*Dr. Marks and his assistant were very informative and caring - felt very comforable!


He is very nice to be and his nurse.


*Dr. Marks doesn't take the time to listen to me and explain things. I always leave confused.


Always a pleasant experience.


i have and wil continue to recommend Dr. Marks and his staff to everyone. He is the best doctorI have seen at Wake Forest and trust me I have seen and continue to see many, He talks to you and your adult child ( with all HIPPA) rules signed as if we are all family and healing together. makes you feel you are important and he understands the way women think when it comes to breast surgery after cancer andd cares. I praise him all the time.


Absolutely awesome.




Dr Marks is top notch
