 |  Dr. James Marsh has courage. That alone makes him an exception to the rule  |  show details
by TSF on May 8th, 2014

Dr. Marsh has the courage to help where other doctors fail. Dr. Marsh talks with you, not at you and treats you like a human being, not the next guinea pig to experiment on. I don't think he wants anyone in the world to suffer. Even how he sets the bone, there is a kindness and tenderness in his work. I hope he knows how valuable he is to the community. He is also one of the first doctors to teach me to think outside the box and the orthopedic standards, the medical field is still just scratching the surface of what can be accomplished. I hope he continues to do work using taylor spatial frames as there is such a need for this as an alternative to internal metal. Once your bone is healed it is liberating to have all the metal removed with it and the body return to its organic state. People getting stuck with screws, plates, rods for years on is not healthy, regardless of what FDA approves. The metal sometimes breaks causing complications, I watched people with metal in them for years, become more vulnerable to colds and infections because it is a foreign object in the body and doesn't give the immune system a chance to recuperate.

 |  Derotational Osteotomy for femural ante version both legs  |  show details
Feb 6th, 2012

Dr. Marsh diagnosed and performed the corrective surgery on our 7 year old daughter. Dr. Marsh is a wonderful doctor and surgeon. He spent as much time as we needed and we never felt hurried. We could take as much of his time as we needed. Some appointments included as much as 20 minutes just talking with us about the condition and the surgery and recovery. The examinations were always thorough. The aftercare was outstanding. Our daughter recovered very quickly and perfectly far exceeding our expectations and the expectations of the physical therapists. Two weeks after surgery she was walking on her own. Two months after surgery she was running around. 6 months after surgery she was better than before. He is a brilliant doctor and I truly wish all doctors were like him. His office staff is a bit disorganized but that should not impact your decision to select him. He is outstanding, caring, thorough, and even after the surgery, my daughter looks forward to seeing him.

My family has been under the care of Dr. Marsh for approx. 12 years with my daughter being diagnosed with scoliosis in second grade. My son has had problems as well and both kids love Dr. Marsh. He is very caring, patient, and talks with the kids as if they were his only patients. He has given us his cell phone number in order for us to have access to him 24/7 after both surgeries (one on each child). And, he has helped me with the pain in my hands, even though it is not his specialty. He has such a great bedside manner and I would follow him anywhere he goes to obtain care for my children. I respect him enough to also ask for referrals to other doctors when needed. I have never encountered a doctor like this. I wish they all loved what they do as much as he does.Cathy

Dr. Marsh is not only a highly-skilled orthopaedic surgeon but an extraordinarily kind and patient man as well. He has treated both my son and me with a great deal of respect -- never, ever talked down to us as if we didn't have a clue and explained every step of every procedure until we were both comfortable. Lynn, the doctor's medical assistant, is right on top of everything and if she doesn't know the answer to our (many) questions, she'll consult with the doctor and one of them gets back to you quickly. Our pediatrician recommended Dr. Marsh, telling us, "He's a little bit of a drive, and you might not be able to get in to see him right away, but he's the best and it's worth it." She was right.

Dr Marsh is a FANTASTIC Dr and surgeon. Not only does he take his time with you but he gets to know you as well as the injury. If only every Dr was as professional and as good as he is.
