Easy to talk with - very practical and inderstanding of how an athlete wants to recover from injury ??
Very confident Dr. Marino knows what he is doing! Took time to explain in layman's terms without a lot of medical jargon. Felt at ease & look forward to being treated very soon.
He had great bed side manner and was very knowledgeable.
Great appointment, answered all my questions.
We were late to the appt 15 mins the Dr. took us in within 5 mins. Told us that we were late that he only had 10 mins before he was leaving. I apologized but he was arrogant took us in the rm ask my mom why we were there I told him she has a problem with her foot. My mom was in her wheel chair. I told him her problems and procedures she had done in the last 4 months and all he said was I needed to take her to the E.R. I told him we have been there so many times that haven't done nothing for her. Then he said she needed to be seen by wound care and gave me an address for one in Daily City. That was the end of her appt. Never look or examed her foot or asked what he could do for her. I would never refer him to anyone.
Very nice office and helpful staff. Dr.Marino was extremely attentive and explained all details about my condition & upcoming surgery and answered all of our questions.
The doctor was very friendly and explained everything. I liked the fact that he did not rush to do a costly,painful procedure ,rather , he urged me to continue soaking and wait to see if it would improve. I will return to him if my condition doesn't improve.
He got me in right away, and was very thorough. It never felt rushed and I could tell he really knew his stuff.
