I was recommended for a hip replacement. As a last resort, I was referred to Dr. Marc Darrow. After 4 Stem Cell Treatments, my pain was improved 75-80%. Dr. Darrow is not like the average doctor. He's knowledgeable, personable, a comedian who keeps your mind off the discomfort of the procedure. Procedure is pricey but very successful. I would highly recommend him to anyone facing possible orthopedic surgery!
Very personable with a mission to heal!!! He treats his staff and patients, with respect and interest. He is a no guff kind of guy. I went to an open house affair he was having. I was having trouble with knee pain from a fall. He examined me that night, and correctly diagnosed my trouble, no charge just true compasion. My knee healed as he said. I went back for his Ideal Protein weight loss program with excellent long term results..
Marc Darrow is one of the best stem cell therapist I've ever met. Fast, Quality Service, On Time!. I highly recommend.
In 2008 I was suffering from severe knuckle pain in my left hand for over three years. I tried cortisone injections but they did not last, so I considered knuckle replacement. that is until I heard of Prolotherapy on the radio and received treatment from Dr Darrow. After just two treatments, I have been pain free for over two years I continued to take vitamins and supplements that Dr. Darrow recommended.
I've been seeing Dr. Darrow and the staff has always been very professional, kind and very thorough. Dr. Darrow has helped me 100 percent. He understands the situation and treats the pain and needs and well as explaining the problem and the expected results perfectly. I highly recommend Dr. Darrow and his office.
I have been having PRP treatment for rotator cuff and bicep tears with Dr. Darrow after conventional treatment by a top orthopedic surgeon didn't do anything to alleviate the pain and help the healing. I am extremely pleased with the progress so far and I believe that PRP is a true healing procedure. When you are weighing the options of a cortizone shot or PRP - believe me - PRP IS the only option.
Dr Darrow is a doctor who really seems to care about his patient's health. He's great at looking at all options for what might help you.
I had chronic lower back problems for years and at the suggestion of a friend, I opted to try out Dr. Darrow's clinic. After just a few treatments, I'm able again to sit for prolonged periods and feel comfortable. Dr. Darrow was caring, compassionate, and really wanted to help solve my issues. I have seen other practitioners in the past but none were able to so quickly get at the root cause of my issue. I believe Dr. Darrow has deep insight into his patients and really cares. I believe caring providers who are also experienced and insightful can make all the difference in therapy. I would highly recommend Dr. Darrow to anyone reading these reviews.
I went to see Dr. Darrow becasue of a persistent knee pain caused by a torn meniscus. I had prolotherapy 5 years ago for the same knee but in another state. I re-injured my knee after playing basketball with my kids. I did some research on the internet and it led me to Dr. Darrow. After a thorough exam, he gave me one treatment of prolotherapy and in 24 hours, my knee was 100%. Even though I had prolotherapy in the past, I was shocked at how quickly I felt relief after Dr. Darrow treated me. The last time I had prolotherapy, it took two shots and over two weeks for complete healing. When Dr. Darrow treated me, I was completely free of pain and had full mobility in one day. I attribute this quick recovery time (compared to my last treatment) to his expertise in administering the shot in the correct spot (s) for maximum effect. Unlike my previous doctor, Dr. Darrow used an ultrasound to precisely guide the syringe. He was patient, comforting and very proficient. On a personal level, I found Dr. Darrow to be warm and kind. He was very patient with me and asked poignant questions about my family and my lifestyle. I never felt rushed, intmidated or belittled. I can say my experience with Dr. Darrow is most certaintly one of the best I've ever had with any physician. My knee feels great. I can continue my busy family life pain free. Surgery is no longer the only option for me and I am thankful to Dr. Darrow for his practice. I would highly recommend Dr. Darrow to anyone facing chronic pain.
Dr. Darrow is AMAZING! After years of crippling back and neck pain, I visited Dr. Darrow's office as a last ditch effort to avoid surgery. Quick story, the first time I went to Dr. D's office I was bent over in pain. The parking lot attendant opened my car door and I sort of crawled to the lobby door. After the first treatment I bounced back to the garage, same guy opened my door, asked me if I had a twin. I was completely pain free! Dr. D also has a great bedside manner. Thanks to him I am completely pain free and NO surgery! Great Doc!
Dr. Darrow has been my primary doctor for 12 years. He has assisted me numerous times to get over various ailments. Several years ago he treated and supervised treatment of a serious back injury that was undermining my whole life. Recently he has helped me get my hormones balanced and I have been revitalized in an amazing way. I have always had a great experience in working with him and recommend him highly.
I have been coming to Dr. Darrow for well over 15 years and have always found him to be thorough, caring and highly effective. Waiting time can vary but that's because once he's with you, he takes the time necessary to be thorough - he is definitely not one of those six minute revolving door types. He has been very helpful to me when I have encountered health issues while traveling as well.
Dr. Darrow has taken my painful back and made it pain free. He is a genius!
Dr. Darrow treated me for a knee problem with prolotherapy about 10 years ago. I had been awakened with knee pain every night from 4 to 10 times per night for the past year. I would have to walk on it for a few minutes to get it calmed down, then I could get back to sleep. After several weekly treatments by Dr. Darrow, the pain was gone. It hasn't awakened me since!I am a chiropractor, and have referred numerous patients to Dr. Darrow with great results. He is also a very loving and compassionate man.
Dr. Marc Darrow is one of the finest doctors I've ever been treated by. Along with his great skill and the procedures he has developed to facilitate the body's healing, he has enormous integrity and deep caring for his patients. I was in so much pain stemming from problematic back and knees, and Dr. Darrow's gentle treatments have brought comfort, strength and health back to my body.
I have known Dr. Darrow for about 20 years, he's not only my Doctor, but he has become a great friend.Dr. Marc Darrow not only changed my life physically, he has touched me spiritually as well.Ten years ago I brought a friend of mine who was in terrible pain, I sat in on the appointment, while Dr. Darrow was giving my friend some instruction on how to rid most of the pain with simple diet, it sparked my curiosity, I asked Dr. Darrow if his way of eating would be good for me, well the rest is history, not only did I rid my entire body of pain, but the trickle down affect has helped over 50 people in Indonesia, doesn't sound like much, but I'm not a Doctor, and when people ask for my help, that's the miracle.I'm 54 years old, I play tennis at a high level 2 hours a day, and usually surf for two to three hours too, I wake up every morning like I'm 19 again.....:) Dr. Darrow never hesitates to answer any of my dumb questions via email or when i call he always takes my call......always!I've tried Prolo Therapy a few times with great success. I greatly admire and respect Dr. Darrow......Thank you DOC! Thanks for reading this.......
I have used Dr. Darrow many times of the years for various injuries with a high degree of success. The injuries include; severe lower back pain, knee problems and elbow issues. In each case I was treated with prolo therapy approximately once a week. The Prolotherapy & PRP process creates inflammation in the immediate area which can then promote the healing process and natural growth of collagen and cartilage.Each injury was healed in approximately 3-6 treatments in my cases, depending on the severity. In one incident I had severe leg numbness when I went in and he immediately got me a rush MRI and reading of the results to properly & quickly deal with the problem. He also said if I had any further issues that night to immediately call his cell phone.My experiences with Dr. Marc Darrow and his staff have always been very positive and I would highly recommend him. He also tends to look for cutting edge technology to help analyze your problems or better yet prevent them.If you have read negative reviews on Dr. Darrow, you should consider that the person who wrote it makes everyone miserable. Its easy to write negative reviews without your name on them. You wont find a more respectful or loving human being than Dr. Darrow. He goes beyond the call of duty for his patients. I have recommended him to numerous friends who have all had a positive healing experience.
Being professional golfer I have accured several injuries in the past 4-6 yrs. I hit golf balls everyday while teaching thru-out the year. I've been treated by Dr.Darrow manytime & have found his treatment towards me has been right on. He is the best. He saved me many-times from ending my carrier. He is the Tiger Wood's of modern medicine.
I found that Dr. Darrow is a very experienced and professional physician. He was able to actually diagnose a problem that 3 specialists missed and was able to help with the issue. While I was being treated I also had prolotherapy on both knees. Just a few treatments (I believe, it was 4) and I felt that my joints were more stable and I no longer felt "weak" in the knees with a variety of acitivites. So, in my eyes I feel that Dr. Darrow gave me back freedom to do more activites with comfort and assisted me through supplements to strengthen m,y overall health so that I fell many years younger.Thank you Dr. Darrow.
My appointment with Dr. Darrow was a success. I had a problem with my shoulder that I had a hard time raising my arm. Dr. Darrow performed "prolo therapy" on my shoulder. He was gentle and had a comforting bedside manner. I only needed to go back for one more session and my shoulder problem went away.Dr. Darrow's staff was welcoming. Christina was friendly and immediately put me at ease. I only had to wait 5 minutes for Dr. Darrow to be ready to see me. I am recommending Dr. Darrow to anyone who has painful joints.
Dr. Darrow has helped me over the years with a number of different symptoms that other pracitioners couldn't approach. He has also referred me to another office fo procedures that actually removed pain fo the last 10 years. I am very grateful.
I am so thankful to have a man who, unlike most, truly loves what he does and that's caring for his patients. I was ushered into his office quickly upon arrival and met the most gentle and kind man. We spoke about my issues for about 10 minutes. By the questions he was asking, I knew he knew what he was doing. He was able to diagnose my issue and set me on what I know is a wonderful road to recovery. I can't say enough great things about Dr. Darrow and his staff.
Not to overstate the value of prolo-therapy, but I'm a 63 year old ex-gymnast who now plays tennis 5 or 6 times a week. No would that have been possible without Dr. Darrow's ministrations to my knees. I was amazed. And delighted. My visits to the office were unmemorable, standard, office treatment except for the results. Terrific.
Dr. Darrow always manages to squeeze me in for an appointment if I am in a lot of pain. This is worth everything! He is very good at diagnosing the issue. His training and native intelligence are so essential in assessing what is gong on. I always leave his office feeling better and that I am in good hands. I most appreciate the follow up call. He seems to really care about my well-being.
For 25 years my knee hurt while doing activities that required a strong knee. I had lost hope of every doing the sports that I love, until i met Dr Darrow. He gave me hope and then delivered! I am now doing triathlons and have a new lease on life! It's a miracle in my book! Thank you Dr. Darrow!!
Dr. Darrow, saved me! I had a severe accident that almost severed my spinal cord. You must be patient with ProloTherapy because it is not a bandaid. It is a healing process. The areas of pain move, sometimes disappearing for a while and coming back and then disappear for good...you must exercise and keep you body strong though. Dr. Darrow is a unique individual but he does care & does want to facilitate your healing. He is passionate about what he preaches & practices. This is not arrogance. If anything he may get frustrated when patients resist what he knows will help. Prolo is not covered by most health insurance plans because it is not considered standard treatment but IT DOES WORK!!!! You must stick with it and this is expensive over time. The patient must decide whether healing is worth the price and if your funds are limited talk to Dr. Darrow tell him your situation. Dr. Darrow is a modern age doctor that is not constrained by pure old world western medicine which is what all medicine should be in this day & age! All I can say that he saved me and has helped numerous people I have referred to him! I am grateful to found him and to know him!
I have been a patient of Dr. Darrow's for almost ten years. I first saw him a result of a spinal injury and have since continued to see him for treatment related to my multiple sclerosis. I belive Dr. Darrow is the most thorough doctor I have ever seen. He is concerned about the whole being of the patient, not just the limited injury or malady for which the patient is being seen. Moreover, he spends significant time with each patient and is reachable via email and cell phone at any time of day or night. This thorough approach is the reason for the sometimes longer than normal waiting periods for an appointment. The wait is worth it.
My experience with Dr. Darrow was and continues to be excellent. My history spans 2 1/2 years. I was in extreme pain from my jaw to my knees. From the first visit to his office he and his staff have truly supportive and caring. My first round of treatment lasted 6 mos. and consisted of injections to my TMJ (2 sessions), my neck (2 sessions), my shoulder (2 sessions), my back (7 sessions), and my knees(3 sessions). In 7 months I was out of pain and able to do things that I had thought I would never be able to do again. The nutrition aspect of this plays a large role in healing as the foods we eat can either help us or harm us. As I followed the prescribed eating plan, I lost weight, slept better and have a much better sense of well being. I am now able to run again which was always my favorite activity. Due to and ankle injusry from childhood that flared up I just finished 2 sessions of prolotherapy there and am back to my full schedule of running 5 days a week. Being able to be a participant in my own health and weel being is such a gift and I credit Dr. Darrow and his staff for that.
As a new patient I was disappointed in having to wait over an hour in the waiting room and another 45 minutes in a very cluttered and messsy office/exam room. I did not feel as if I was very important or that my business was appreciated As I'm not a movie star or sports person but neither were the few other people I saw come in.The thing that was most upsetting (besides having to pay over $20 to park) was he ordered lots of lab work, a bone scan (I had a torn muscle) and 7 bottles of various supplements without discussing it with me. I was also to watch some nutritional movie but after spending 5 hrs there wanted to just go home. I did not buy the bottles of vitimans. I only wanted to discuss prolotreatment and maybe get a shot of it, for this first visit= $600.HIs staf said ins will not pay for any of it so I had to pay it all!I very sceptical of this man and his huge ego. Be aware and ask questions, before just doing what the dr. ordered. After all his business is to make $$ not heal you. That is the impresion I got.very dissapointed.
Thank you for your feedback. We take all patient responses seriously. While HIPAA prevents me from responding directly to any case, I do want all of our patients to have a positive outcome with their treatment and would welcome the opportunity to directly address any concerns.
