I went to Dr. Marchalik bearing high expectations, having been referred to him with the highest of recommendations. Within moments, Dr. M. had easily exceeded those highest recommendations. This is the exemplary kind of doctor every patientwishes for, but perhaps too rarely finds--just a grand all-round physician, empathetic human being for a harried world.

Dr. Marchalik reviewed not just his notes, but my entire medical history since my last visit, before my appointment so he was well prepared with how my next steps for urology would work into and around my treatment for thyroid cancer.He also was able to quickly explain why the kidney stone wasn't caused by a medication I thought it may have been. Will definitely continue seeing him! Office staff was very helpful in trying to get the referral my primary doctor issued, but had some errors on, corrected. Ultimately, I had to go down to the primary doctor's office (just downstairs) - but they did earnestly try. Washington Hospital Center is serviced by Metro Buses and runs free shuttles from Brookland and Columbia Heights Metro Stations.
