I agree with other reviewers that this doctor should not be recommended. I switched to her practice when she went on her own because I really liked her and the care, kindness and attention to detail she provided. She had been an incredible doctor in the past. Since starting her own practice, though, I've noticed the quality of care, and her bedside manner, is horrible. Appointment times are almost never adhered to. It seems to be the norm to wait a minimum of 45 minutes . It also seems this is no longer a family friendly practice either. My children calmly and respectfully climbed on to the chairs to politely sit (they are little, independent people and adult chairs are tall for little ones) and a staff member immediately started reprimanding them for doing so. During my pregnancy, I noticed that Dr. Marlino was constantly on vacation. At one point during my gestation, I had to go to the ER and discovered that Dr. Marlino was on vacation. Her backup, I later found out from Dr. Marlino herself, unnecessarily administered a medication to me. Especially with being pregnant, you can imagine how upset I was at hearing this information! On my delivery day, in the middle of laboring, Dr. Marlino informed me that it was a good thing I was delivering that day because she was going on vacation the next day! Yes, you read that right, yet another vacation. At my post partum follow up, which was past the 6 week mark because of her schedule, Dr. Marlino proceeded to verbally assault me about my labor (I thought my delivery was amazing and beautiful, and still do, because no one has the right to take away the meaning and grace of such a precious moment in a person's life) in front of my children. Apparently she had issues with how I delivered, even though I discussed my birth plan with her, well in advance, and had her approval on it! After my appointment, my children were asking why Dr. Marlino was mad at them. My children should never have been subjected to her unprofessional manner and I should not have had to calm them down and reassure them because of what she did. Dr. Marlino also informed me that I should find another doctor and did not give me the post partum care that I needed. I am still following up on health issues related to my delivery. In conclusion, I would not recommend this doctor.
I agree with "do not Recommends " review totally. I've been with Dr. Marlino for over 15 years and since going on her own (the last 3 years)she seems to become very jaded and also very money oriented. She's totally changed. She has no empathy for issues you are having & just recommends tests/biopsy's as answers. Will not return calls. I went to another Dr and she totally disagreed with Marlinos diagnosis & saved me time, money and the stress of unnecessary procedures. Her staff is horrible. cold and insesnitive as other reviewers stated. She charged additional fees for just spending time talking about concerns I had..which should be "normal" time with a patient. She would not return calls..I made several attempts for an issue I was having and wanted to discuss test results. After 4 calls and ONE MONTH LATER she finally called me back and was very "matter of fact", mean, accusatory and inappropriate. I had mentioned a problem with a staff member and she basically called me a liar stating her staff member did not say something she CLEARLY did. Not to mention she told me she felt it was best I go elsewhere. Incredible after years of no problems (until she went solo). Her staff called repeatedly to tell me I'd have to pay for visits at the time of each visit since my insurance wouldn't cover it. It was quite rude to call and tell me 3 times when my bills have always been paid. I had to wait almost an hour naked in a freezing exam room each time.. I can go on and on..but you get the idea.....go elsewhere!
Not happy with her at all. After asking for mammogram at every annual check up due to my family history and her telling me that it's unnecessary, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer after another doctor recommended a mammogram. I think it could have been caught earlier had she given me a script. After I was diagnosed - no phone call, no courtesy either. Also, I waited for her for about an hour before every routine visit.
I have been following Dr. Marlino for about 11 years now. She delivered by son via C-section, and it was the BEST out of 3 different doctors. Great recovery, incisions, etc. She takes her time with you. She is never rushed to leave for the next patient - now that she is on her own. That was the best move she ever made. Remember she is on her own and if a baby needs to be delivered or a complication comes through - you need to be patient and wait!! She is a mom as well. When she was in the prior practice - wait times were still long and her time with you was always cut short. She always remembers you. The office staff is nice as well. Highly recommend - but I believe she is not taking anymore patients.
Wait time has been over 45 minutes every time, up to an hour and a half one visit. Does not return (multiple) calls. Dr Marlino appears to be technically proficient but is VERY lacking in any sense of bedside manner or showing any sort of empathy toward her patients. She is VERY rough with the physical exams (every time) despite mentioning it. Everything is non-chalant and the caring for patients' feelings or concerns is just not there. As another reviewer said, no apologies for any of it even when talking to her about it. It's not her fault ever. Very disappointing as we chose her from a set of good reviews before, but now we know better and are moving on to a different doctor.
She is the best doctor I have ever met, she is compassionate and highly knowledgeable.I had my baby girl delivered in Paoli this September and I am glad I had chosen Dr Marlino.While the wait times are long, the way doctor treats the patients and the thoroughness of her diagnosis makes the wait worthwhile.
Dr Marlino is good. Nurses are not too bad. Receptionists are horrible. They are very mean and made tons of mistake. They don't recognize me and ask if it's my first visiting till I visit there 7 times.
I highly recommend this doctor. She was very through..and spent so much time with me. She was so positive, warm and caring and took the time to make me feel at ease with my upcoming childbirth. Great office and nice staff. I waited less than 5 minutes.
I highly recommend Dr. Marlino. She is caring and compassionate. She remembers details about my life even though I only see her once a yr. She makes me feel extremely comfortable at the visit. She spends as much time as I need for the visit.
Dr Marlino in an excellent doctor. I work with her on the maternity floor and I'm also a patient of her's for 2 of my pregnancies. She often goes above and beyond most docs. Expect to wait for her appointments, but she's well worth it. A lot of docs seem worried about their time limits in the office. She is much more concerned about being thorough and caring during her visits. Great bed side manner.
Dr marlino delivered my son and I have her to thank for saving my life. I had some major issues after my son was born and she acted calm and went right to work in getting the situation under control. The whole practice is wonderful and is highly recommended.
