Dr. Marks is a wonderful physician who truly cares about his patients. He does not promise results that cannot be realistically achieved. He includes the patient in decision making, and he welcomes thoughtful questions. I have never felt rushed by him, and I have complete confidence in his skills.


I wouldn't let anyone else touch my face! I have had a lot of radiation to my face, having had tongue cancer. I had a nasty neck scar from the surgery, and went to Dr. Marks to see if he could make it look better. He said he would need to consult with my radiology oncologist before he would consider it. Called me a week later and agreed to talk about what he could do for me. The result was wonderful. He is careful! I'd been thinking about a facelift for several years and wouldn't trust anyone else. He did fabulous work for me and I'd highly recommend him!
