She's the best
Great. Very nice and thorough.
It was awesome. This is the second time I've met with Dana. First time was typical "meet your new provider for the first time and feel somewhat awkward about it" appointment. This second appointment was much more lax and comfortable. The nursing staff and Dana were super sweet. They all were excited that I lost even more weight since my last appointment with them (March 2016) and all told me how awesome it was that I was working so hard in my weight loss journey.
Dana Mars, NP was very kind and professional! I would highly recommend seeing her.
My appointment with doctor Mars was the best experience I've had in the two years I've been going to BMC. She is great.
Very kind and compassionate. First time visiting her and I felt very comfortable.
She was amazing and I would definitely see her again.
It was great but the office was very difficult to locate!
I had the most wonderful visit with Dana Mars,NP. on December 19 ,2014 , I was seen in the urgent care area, at Boston Medical Center due to a severe cut to my right index finger ,the staff they were excellent and outstanding. On December 29, 2014. I had severe pain in the same finger, I made an appointment with Dana Mars NP, at BMC, for December 30, 2014 ---I was greeted with a beautiful smile and a very warm welcome. Ms Mars, performed a complete Physical exam. She was quite concerned, my blood pressure was 190/90. I have a history of high blood pressure but, never this elevated. She made a compllete time change with my medication, also she requested, that I return within 2 weeks for a follow-up appointment, and to monitor my blood pressure. Since my visit, my blood pressure has been 140/80 .I'm no longer in the( Stroke Zone) thanks to an awesome NP. With sincere gratitude, Barbara Boyd
Dana was an excellent provider. Finding the right provider can be challenging, but Dana makes you feel very comfortable. She was very thorough, and at the same time very open to questions. I had a great experience with her!
Dana Mars asked great questions to determine the issue and walked me through the process. I was very comfortable during the examination and happy that additional testing has been ordered to determine the root cause while my symptoms are being treated.
Dana and the other nurses were all extremely warm and friendly. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
She was very professional Made me feel very comfortable Knowledgeable and right on top with my answers. Feel very good about my appointment
