I feel very fortunate that Dr. Markarian performed my spinal surgery and that I had all of my follow up visits with him. He is an outstanding surgeon and I wish him the very best in his retirement.

Supportive staff. The MD cared about my well-being, communicated in a kind and professional manner. The surgery went well and Doctor explained progress during recovery. I am very pleased.

The staff was kind and efficient. Dr. George's Markarian was thorough, thoughtful and professional.

I would definitely refer Dr. Markarian to others.

Reviewed on Jun 15, 2021

I was ignored by the first referral to one of your neurosurgeons as my health care provider is SummaCare. When I pursued this my primary care provider then referred me to Dr. Markarian, from that same practice, who was admittedly unable to address my back issues. I'm still waiting on a call from one of two doctors he has referred me to at the main campus to schedule an appointment to receive their suggestions regarding possible treatment.
