Ratings for Dr. David Marcassa
4 stars for the staff. the front desk girls are the best part of the visit. dr.marcassa has never properly solved any medical issues i've brought to him. he's been our long time family doctor for years so ive continued to go to his office seeing nurses and other dr's, but theres been times ive willingly waited in emerg rather then seeing him.
Dr Marcassa is a long time family doctor and a wonderful one at that. I feel comfortable talking to him about anything and do not feel judged. He is patient and understanding, no problem too small to talk about. I am happy that he is willing to explore alternatives to medicine before prescribing and is supportive in doing so- understanding that lifestyle plays a key role first. Amazing support staff, particularly the medical secretary. They are respectful of your appointment times and rarely late. Couldn't say enough good things, and feeling blessed to have such a great family doctor.
My experience with Dr. Marcassa has largely been positive. He is an engaged doctor who respects his patient's opinions (even if it does feel like sometimes he is not totally listening to you). Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for his receptionist. She is rude, always rushing you to get off the phone, and extremely unhelpful. It would serve his practice well to give her some basic training in communication skills and appropriate practice management, or to hire someone who does.
Dr. Marcassa, is in my opinion, a rare doctor who listens to what you feel is important to your well being. He is open to new discoveries that the information highway is offering. He is a doctor that recognizes that other options to pharmaceutical treatments may be a consideration to a patients healing, He does not, in my experience, want his patients to be on a prescription drug for any longer than absolutely necessary. Over all. a down to earth guy! I am very happy to have him as my Doctor. Thank you.
Dr.Marcassa has reasonable bedside manner but rushes through the appointment. He does not always treat me as an equal even though we are partners in my health. He does not treat other health care workers with respect, and has been abrupt and impolite to my pharmacy when they should be working together for my health.
