Dr. Marinov made me feel that I was in good hands and 4 cysts (sebaceous) would be removed.

I waited 1 hour total time to see this provider I believe this to be way too long without someone coming to notify me while I was in the office to why this happened.

Pretty good doctor - very elaborate - The nurse providing pre-op instruction is talking fast and kinda confusing.

Reviewed on July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Marinov always follows up and treats you like you are the only patient he needs to see. He squeezed me in every week post-op until my wound was healed because I kept having issues. He is only patient and amazing.

The visit was for a post discharge if stay after emergency surgery for appendicitis on 1/21/19. Dr. Marinov is an exceptional person, surgeon, & provider! The 21st was the first day I met Dr. Marinov and he has an exceptional personality and wonderful bedside manner. Both me and my loved ones felt comfortable and knew I was in great hands with Dr. Marinov. He provided information about my surgery & possible concerns/risks of the surgery and during all visits in an informative, precise, honest, & sincere manner. I'm grateful to have been in his care!!

This survey did not really apply to my visit. I tried to fill it out correctly. I had gallbladder surgery two days after meeting him in the Luth Gen. Emergency Room. My office visit was a surgery follow up. We agreed that I should stop the antibiotics. I did NOT get a survey for my hospital visit, and I wish I did. Luth Gen. Hospital scheduling does NOT work on weekends. I had to call Dr. Marinov to find out when I would have surgery. There was no call on Sunday, nor on Monday (my day of surgery). I had to call scheduling. When I checked in (registration) they had no record of me. It seems like someone should cover last minute changes & be available on weekends. Everyone was nice and helpful.
