    I am sad that Dr. Marx is no longer with the Moran. He has been my doctor for a couple of years and has always been great.

    Dr Marx makes us feel special and that he really cares about us

    Dr. Marx did not check in with me after my surgery which I felt was important for him to explain to me what symptoms I might experience and for how long. I believe I was his last surgery of the day on that Friday and maybe he was anxious to get out of there.
