I love this physician! We first saw him when our original doc went out on maternity leave. I would drive out of my way to see him. He works so well with children and gets them to trust him before moving on with the eye exam. Again, I expected my daughter to be crying and throwing a fit, but she didn't shed a tear with him. Simply amazing.

Dr. Marcotte he is one of the best children's doctors in the world. And it shows. Not only in his every day working but how he treats the kids in his offices.My son was almost legally blind in his right eye when we first took him to see Dr. Marcotti. Through his hard work and the practices and different procedures he had us do at home my son now sees 20/40 out of that eye that he was almost legally blind in. thank you Dr. Marcotti and the Cleveland clinic staff for continuing to go above and beyond your every day duties of making sure that these kids have the best eyesight that they can.

Dr. Marcotti was very professional. I appreciated his tie and jacket. He was prompt and attentive. He maintains an excellent relationship with my daughter which is not easy to do. She tends to mumble and he had an excellent way of asking her to repeat herself. He said, "That was a little to soft for me to understand. Could you say it again please?" I appreciated his kindness and way with kids.
