Have you seen Dr. Frederick F Marciano?
A Doctor who listens
Self-verified patient of Dr. Frederick F Marciano - Posted on August 30th, 2017
My wife has a degenerative cervical spine with neuropathy (severe numbness) in both arms from her elbows down to her fingertips 24/7. This has worsened for the better part of fifteen years and drove her crazy at times. Doctors have told her that she needed neck surgery that requires going through the front of the neck. Because of a glowing review given to me from one of my customers that had Dr. Marciano do this surgery we traveled from out of state with the intent of him preforming the same surgery on her. When seeing him he asked many questions and listened intently, preforming general strength and reflex testing. He said “I know you came to me with the intention of having neck surgery but first I think we need to delve into this further.” He said “you have to listen to the story, there’s always a story”. Then he showed us her MRI explaining the problems in detail. Afterwards he stated “All that being said, I don't think your trouble is in your neck, I think it’s in your elbows.” He did say that he couldn't rule it out in the future. Well, to put it mildly we were thunderstruck. He said to confirm it he asked us to go to another doctor for an Electromyogram (EMG) test. After testing it was confirmed, she needed Ulnar nerve surgery. A minimal evasive elbow surgery with a two-week recovery compared to three months for the neck surgery. Dr. Marciano does not do this surgery. Well so much for doctors just in it for the money. I have no words that can express our appreciation. We thank our lucky stars for meeting him. The absolute worst that would have happened if not for him, someone doing that neck surgery and having no improvement for what was ailing her. I can only imagined how she would have felt. Sincerely, Boyd & Gayle Battrell

Dr. Marciano Saved My Life

I was in a car accident at age 18 and suffered a cervical injury to my neck. Over the years, my neck slowly eroded and I dealt with sporadic pain, weakness and numbness. In the fall of 2014 (32 years later), I began experiencing the feeling of difficulty swallowing, and pain and numbness in my face and arms. I was terrified. After visiting my family doctor, I asked to be referred to Barrow Neurosurgical Associates and Dr. Frederick Marciano in particular (after noting his designation as a "Top Doc"). Dr. Marciano reviewed my MRI's and recommended Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion (ACDF) due to bone spurs, deterioration of the discs and marked impingement on the spinal cord. I was very frightened and nervous going into the surgery. I just want to say that Dr. Marciano is kind, compassionate and wonderful! He is a great listener. He allayed my fears and we proceeded with the surgery. I am at 15 weeks post op and feeling very good. I am still healing but am doing great. I was treated very well at all of the post-op visits and he is always patient and kind. I feel that he saved my life and I am so fortunate that he was my doctor. Thank you again, Dr. Marciano.

I am the husband of a surgery nurse with experience of over 30 years experience. I needed Disc surgery. The surgery staff at her hospital overwhelmingly recommended Dr. Marciano. He did not even work at her particular hospital. But physicians and nurses there recommended Dr. Marciano.The Surgery was done at Scottsdale Healthcare at Osborn, instead. Very greatful and haven't had any related problems since my microdiscectemy. Sciatic pain is gone after enduring 18 months pain. I'm writing this 4 or 5 years later
What every doctor should be!

Dr. Marciano is an amazing Doctor who seems to genuinely care for his patients. He made me feel comfortable with the decision to have neurosurgery every step of the way. My questions were always answered, and his staff was always helpful and accommodating. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. I only wish there were more Doctors like him. I have nothing but praise for him!

Couldn't have asked for a better doctor! I had a motorcycle accident and cracked my skull. He was very caring and explained everything he was going to do and why. Did the same with my family, they remember it, not me. Visited me regularly after to see how I was doing. Visits at his office after were just as pleasant. Very down to earth doctor! Knows how to explain things to someone without medical knowledge, wish i could say that about my hand surgeon! Hope this helps anyone looking for a great caring Neurosurgeon. ps i had a brain aneurysm, which required removing part of my skull to fix. I thank God for Dr Marciano! Couldn't have asked for better results.
Thank you for the wonderful care

Dr. Marciano,You treated my L5 herniation with much appreciated haste and wonderful skill. I was experiencing relentless pain I could not have imagined prior to my injury. The week prior to surgery is a blur to me now (I'm glad to forget it!) You came in on a weekend day (when you weren't even on-call and I was a new patient) to treat me. I will never forget that. Now four days post-op, I feel fantastic. I haven't had any pain meds since discharge on Sunday. I look forward to my follow up meeting with you. There's a theory in marketing that people rarely talk about good service but will tell ten times as many people about bad service. You provided me and my family with stellar service and skill -- it will be my honor to share that with as many people as I can, particularly those with back problems and those that provide support/guidance to employees with back problems. Thank you for the new lease on living a healthy normal life, and thank you for caring so much. I look forward to shaking your hand and thanking you face-to-face.
