Hospital Affliation

Having a broken foot without knowing it, imagine the surprise. I was initially treated at Emerg Ortho Walk-In clinic with a follow up visit with Dr. Marr! Based on both of my experiences, I would definitely recommend both Walk-in and Dr. Marr without hesitation!

They treat you with respect take the time to understand what your needs are and work toward that gold of fixing the problem. Very professional in everything they do I love going there for treatment can't say that about many healthcare systems. I recommend EmergeOrtho to everyone I see.
