Dr. Marmor seemed not interested in my problems.

SHC Patient, Sep 2016

Top of his field - Very interested in patients' history. Excellent questions, put me at ease & great sense of humor.

SHC Patient, Apr 2016

It was great experience.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

Dr. Marmor is a total professional. He takes the time to explain complex issues and does not assume the patient is incapable of understanding. Perhaps the best MD I have ever had.

SHC Patient, Mar 2016

My care provider was very pleasant and efficient.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Great service!

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Often dr. spoke to "aids" rather than me the patient - expressed difficulty in positioning yet 'aids' showed no attempt to get through tests w/o multiple views by all - even repeat "teaching" them not me w medical terms asked to be translated often.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Excellent, timely & compassionate care!

Dr. Marmor is THE expert on plaquenil and macular degeneration. I'm lucky to live near him.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Marmor is the best doctor I've ever seen.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Good but told me to tell my other dr. about a certain med I shouldn't take. ALL of my drs. are @ SHC so they should talk to each other - I shouldn't have to tell them about meds.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Nailed it! Finally know the disease I have and I am glad!

Dr. Marmor is a very nice doctor with good old fashioned caring, courtesy & manners.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

This was my first appointment with Dr. Marmor. I live in Seattle & had heard he was a very good eye doctor. I learned on this visit that I had been misdiagnosed by my eye doctor of 38 yrs. I appreciated how thorough & considerate Dr. Marmor was.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

Dr. Marmor is an excellent ophthalmologist. He is an expert in retinal diseases. He is very caring & explains things very well. I am very happy to have him as my ophthalmologist.
