Good doctor.

I have found Dr. Marulendra to be one of the better physicians in the Trenton-Hamilton area. He is patient, explains your medical condition in detail, explains any procedures in layman's language. My other physicians hold him in high regard. He has been my doctor for both a colonoscopy and an endoscopy. I will definitely see him again.

Completely Satisfied

Back to Dr. M for procedure. I had to cancel my first appointment and rescheduling was so easy. Arrived at the facility for procedure and didn't even get a chance to sit down before being called. Everyone was so nice and concerned for me. Dr. M spoke to me before the procedure and after, spending time answering any of my questions. I am very happy with Dr. M and his staff.

I have been going to Dr. M for years and am very surprised at the reviews. I have always been very satisfied with his office staff and with Dr. M. He always answered any questions I had for him before and after the procedure. I would recommend this doctor.

Patient's Mom

This doctor misdiagnosed my daughter; did not even read the results of the biopsy nor order a blood test to confirm whether she had celiac disease or not. She does NOT! Does not listen to patients!
