27/02/14 4 4 4 4 my son is one of her patients, in August we received a letter and a phone call from the clinic to inform us that she is no longer in practice, offering us another option of having a new family doctor to replace her and take care of our problems, which was really nice, to worry about her patients.  See Responses

14/02/14 1 3 3 3 Dr. Marks provided an adequate level of care until 2013. Around September of 2013 a call was placed to the clinic and it was learned that Dr. Marks was no longer available and out of the country. No official or formal communication was received from the clinic. Patients were instructed to seek out a new doctor. Official revocation of enrollment forms were filed at the ministry and a new family doctor was completed. Standard of care and administration practices of the clinic should be reviewed.  See Responses

03/06/12 3 3 5 4 She is a very compassionate person and thorough as a doctor. Her staff has improved recently; at least they answer the phone now. It used to be an absolute nightmare even just trying to book an appointment. Also, even though it's nice that you dont' feel rushed with her, it also means that the wait is pretty long. But that also has improved, thankfully, as I was trying to find a different doctor for a while. But everything seems improved, and she's great as always, so we're good to go. People who complain about her must really be negative, unpleasant types of people.  See Responses

15/03/11 1 3 4 4 The Ste Marie health clinic is by far the worst clinic in Ottawa, the front desk staff is incompitent, unhelpful and rude. That being said, Dr. Marks is a wonderful doctor, she (and her associates) need ot set a higher standard for reception service. If Doctor's were not so hard to find I would have left ages ago. Luckily I am in good health and don't have to visit that often.  Respond

06/03/09 1 1 2 3 Dr Marks was supposed to be my family Dr and I booked an apt to see her. I guess she did not want to do a physical that day so she said she was no longer my Dr because I had not seen her for 2 years. I did not need to see her, so I hadn't made an apt. She then told me the type of physical I needed was not covered by OHIP but my card was swiped when I came in. I will be following up with OHIP to ensure they too were not charged. When my husband went in to pay the money, she was very rude to him! I would not recommend her at all and will be looking for someone else. 
Paid (or co-pay): $125

01/12/08 4 4 5 5 We started seeing Dr. Marks about 1 year ago, she has been very helpful with our 1 year old son, she takes teh time to see him and when we had a real problem, she was very willing to help us out after clinic hours. so far she has been a great doctor.  Respond

26/09/08 3 3 5 4 Dr Marks has been one of the best doctors my wife & I have had in a long time.Even though she is over worked, she still takes the time to explain everything and is very thorough. We are very upset that the AIM Health Group has locked her & Dr Faltas out of their offices, leaving us and hundreds of other patients in limbo. Hopefully they will be in their new offices soon.  Respond

24/09/08 4 3 5 5 Dr Marks is an excellent diagnostician. She gives very good examinations,takes time to explain things and gives very clear answers to my questions.I don't know the details about what is happening at the Aims Clinic but I don't think that she and her husband were treated in a very professional and appropriate way.  Respond

29/08/07 1 2 1 2 Went there in Feb 2007 when the advertising was up. Never even got a call back from the staff. Went in again, staff assured me everyone on the list would be called. Almost Sept now, no call. Impression was of a badly disorganized office area, overloaded, patients lined up too much. Notices all over the walls about extra charges for this and that. What is this place - looks like American style medicare. Not impressed and just as happy to stay with Dr. I have now. Thanks for nothing.  Respond

01/08/07 1 1 4 3 Have met with this doctorseveral times and on a personal level, really like her and find her compassionate. At times a bit forgetful, never-the-less I was impressed that she orders tests to be thorough. The down side to this place is the administrative side: it's a nightmare calling to get an appointment, calls go unreturned, the staff is slow, line-ups long, and it is not the most tidy and clean environment. At this point, I have to wonder if the fact that she seems like potentially a good doctor is worth having to go through such miserable time just trying to book an appointment!  Respond

16/05/07 1 1 1 Be careful with this doctor. Makes wrong dianostics. She can't analyse basic blood test results. Told me my cholesterol was higher than normal but was unable to tell if it was light, medium, heavy Cholesterol she did not know...Wrost clinic I ever visited. Mailbox always full, can't leave messages. This clinic is part of the AIM Health group.  Respond

05/04/07 1 3 3 If this is the doctor from Cornwall,her waiting times were terrible and when she knew that she would leave town, she did not have the decency to inform her patients.  Respond

27/03/07 1 1 1 If this is the same doc from Cornwall, she is horrible. She was never on time, she packed up and left with very little notice, and then wanted money for me to get my chart.  Respond
