Patient Review by Ana E

If I could rate Dr. Marcus higher than a 5 I would, he is amazing. I was in to have an implant and sinus lift not too long ago. I was so nervous about the procedure, the nurses reassured me that I was in good hands and that I had nothing to worry about. They were right, it was quick and painless. Dr. Marcus was gentle and took the time to explain each step during the procedure. The entire staff at Floral Vale Periodontics were friendly and caring. I highly recommend Dr. Marcus.

I don't know how they did it, but Dr. Marcus and Anne (who assisted him), somehow made my tooth extraction and bone grafting a pleasant experience!

Patient Review by Wayne F

Dr Marcus is extremely professional. Not only did he do an excellent job on my implant, but he was very patient in explaining each step of the procedure to me, which was almost entirely painless. He also easily engaged in conversation, combined a with a dry sense of humor, which quickly put me at ease. His staff is also first-rate; courteous and very effective.They did a fine job of making me "feel at home."

I have been seeing Dr. Marcus since the early 90’s. He is the first professional that made me feel comfortable with dentistry. He turned the whole experience around for me and absolutely saved my smile! The entire staff at Floral Vale Periodontics truly cares about the experience of their patients. They are always courteous, polite, and friendly giving the office that warm and welcoming atmosphere. I would recommend Dr. Marcus to any family member or friend for exceptional dentistry. Sam

Patient Review by Franklin S. S

Over the course of the last 14 months I had a lot of Implant work done with Dr. Marcus. One visit I had 2 implants put in my lower jaw and after they healed I had 4 implants put in the upper jaw. They have all healed now and I am very pleased with the result. It was a big decision I made and I have to admit I was worried about how much pain I was getting myself in for, but I can honestly say it was not that bad. The two implant surgerys were painless. There was some soreness and a little swelling the evening of the surgery and Dr. Marcus called me at home to see how I was doing. I would highly recommend Floral Vale Periodontics and Implants.

Patient Review by marcia s

I am so grateful to Dr. Marcus for wonderful work he did on my mouth. It was a long initial procedure, and I am a very nervous, frightened patient, but he and his staff made me quite comfortable and relaxed. I am thrilled with the result, and only wish I had met him much earlier. A special thanks to Ann, who really "mothered" me through the whole procedure. I cannot recommend Dr Marcus and his entire staff highly enough.
