There were no doctors x 2 or regular dentists x2 or ear nose & throat doctor x1 or hygienist x1 in my area that could diagnose or treat my auto immune disorder. I insisted on being referred to someone for help. Referral doctor only. Dr Robinson in Santa Rosa was able to take a biopsy & diagnose correctly. The treatments we proceeded with were palliative but not curative. He referred me to Dr Marinkovich whose treatment plan has been slowly healing my painful & persistent mucus membrane Pemphigoid disorder going on 4 years now. THANK YOU Stanford!
Dr. Marinkovich is THE BEST on every level. He is a consummate professional, but is also a fantastic human being and always shows genuine compassion and caring. I'm grateful to have such a wonderful person care for me.
Awesome doctor; really cares about his patients; listens to them and fully explains things
I certainly will recommend to my friends
I was very impressed with my visit
Best doctor
Dr Marinkovich is an extraordinary doctor and human being. I always feel I'm in the best, comforting, calming and professional hands. His bright and welcoming spirit makes you look forward to your visit with him even when facing a health issue. I always tell him that he should teach classes on "bedside manner", as many in the medical community seems to neglect the personal side of medicine and healing and their care becomes robotic and cold. Not Dr. Marinkovich. Dr. Marinkovich makes himself available to me, takes time and listens extremely well and is genuinely compassionate. The staff and his associates are always friendly as well.
Dr. Marinkovich is an excellent health care provider who has always expressed empathy concern for my well being. I feel very fortunate to be in his care. Thank you.

Dr. Marinkovich took time explaining to me my mother's conditions, potential treatment options, and testing that need to be done define her issues. He even gave me his mobile phone number and email in case I need to contact him. I am 62 years old and have seen many doctors and this is the first time I experienced this personal gesture. Dr. Leon Hsu also demonstrated his concerns for my mother.
