July 27, 2020 7:57 AM

Congratulate the hospital and to all the staff God bless them.

July 20, 2020 2:34 PM

all doctors and medical personnel are top notch. I have total faith in the medical care I've received.

July 20, 2020 6:24 AM

Dr. Marinov performed emergency surgery on me - so this was my first meeting with him and his staff and surgical team - everyone was very professional and easy to talk with.

June 22, 2020 4:49 PM

Dr. Marinov agreed to see my on very short notice. I was in pain due to a abscess in my groin and he performed the required procedure to alleviate the pain by removing the puss. I was very appreciative of his empathy and efficiency.

June 22, 2020 4:49 PM

Great experience

May 28, 2020 2:03 PM

Dr. Marinov was very helpful as we discussed options.

May 13, 2020 8:48 AM

Excellent doctor & service.

Very good experience.

April 1, 2020 4:15 PM

Excellent Doctor Marinov.

April 1, 2020 7:25 AM

I saw MD Marinov in his office twice. Both times the wait time was over an hour past my appt time. I liked the MD very personable. The receptionists checked you in, then they were "done with you". (That's how they made you feel.)

April 1, 2020 7:25 AM

Dr. Marinov was an exceptional doctor, kind, patient and very knowledgeable. My surgery ended after 11 p.m. and he stayed so he could see me afterwards!!

March 23, 2020 5:41 PM

very good

Great doctor, informative and always looked after my comfort. Would highly recommend.

February 4, 2020 12:36 PM

Excellent experience.

January 17, 2020 6:07 AM

Everything went great. Very good doctor.

December 30, 2019 5:43 PM

very good

December 5, 2019 3:01 PM

It was a very good experience.

November 25, 2019 4:20 PM

I had to have emergency surgery and he was the one on call. He did a good job

November 22, 2019 8:10 AM

Doctor Marinov is very knowledgeable & explains thing that I could understand. I feel very confident about his skills and would recommend him to others! Great surgeon.

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

I'm so happy I got Dr. Marinov when I came into the hospital. He treated me like family. Love him.

September 30, 2019 7:00 PM

We waited for just over an hour to see the doctor.

September 23, 2019 7:00 PM

Great doctor!

September 9, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Marinov made me feel that I was in good hands and 4 cysts (sebaceous) would be removed.

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

I waited 1 hour total time to see this provider I believe this to be way too long without someone coming to notify me while I was in the office to why this happened.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Pretty good doctor - very elaborate - The nurse providing pre-op instruction is talking fast and kinda confusing.

June 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Marinov always follows up and treats you like you are the only patient he needs to see. He squeezed me in every week post-op until my wound was healed because I kept having issues. He is only patient and amazing.

June 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Marinov was professional and got to the point. As it turned out I did not need surgery.

May 14, 2019 7:00 PM

He has a very good bedside manner. Straight forward easy to talk to.

May 5, 2019 7:00 PM

My experience was very good he cleared up all my doubts and worries.

April 15, 2019 7:00 PM

It was upsetting felt like he had other things to do. Also too much driving, waiting room wait, & long wait in drs. office.

March 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Marinov explained the procedure he'd be performing for me in great detail and was very easy to understand.

March 11, 2019 7:00 PM

The visit was for a post discharge if stay after emergency surgery for appendicitis on 1/21/19. Dr. Marinov is an exceptional person, surgeon, & provider! The 21st was the first day I met Dr. Marinov and he has an exceptional personality and wonderful bedside manner. Both me and my loved ones felt comfortable and knew I was in great hands with Dr. Marinov. He provided information about my surgery & possible concerns/risks of the surgery and during all visits in an informative, precise, honest, & sincere manner. I'm grateful to have been in his care!!

March 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Excellent care. Specially nurses in hospital. Thank you.

February 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Waited 45 minutes in office with no interface with office staff. Waited another 30 minutes in private room before MD appeared. Then spent no more than 10 minutes with MD before I left office.

February 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Marinov never rushes you. Very interested in you as a person.

February 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Provider was excellent. I am glad I made it to my home hospital and had the surgery with this provider. (I was initially out of state when pain occurred).

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

I received good care both in the hospital and in my post operative visit with his office.

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

it was for follow up appointment for emergency gallbladder surgery. Dr was very understanding and checkup went fine.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Marinov is a very good doctor, caring and listens to his patient and makes it clear he is always available should you need him or have a question.

December 16, 2018 6:00 PM

Very wonderful doctor. One of the best & kind staff I ever came across.

October 14, 2018 7:00 PM

I am a fan of Dr. Marinov. Very competent & trustworthy medical expert.

September 11, 2018 7:00 PM

Happy with front desk & happy with doctor. Everyone is professional & thorough, happy with doctor & appointment, new patient, got in quick, quick results compassionate & helpful doctor & staff.

August 18, 2018 7:00 PM

This provider listened very carefully to my questions and health concerns. He explained things clearly and made sure I understood the surgery procedure. He provided excellent service and made me feel like he cared about my health.

July 30, 2018 7:00 PM

I love this hospital my doctor is very professional and he does truly care.

June 27, 2018 7:00 PM

I first met Dr. Marinov in the hospital when I needed emergency gall bladder surgery. He was very nice & answered all of my questions before & after surgery. I saw him again at his office for a follow-up appointment. I would definitely recommend Dr. Marinov.

June 27, 2018 7:00 PM

I couldn't have had better care than the services any where. I have great respect Dr. Marinov and the team he works with. I trust him with my and anyone in my family lives. He is very respectful of me, my needs and my families concerns while I was under his care. He is a great physician and a genuinely good man. Thank you

June 18, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Marin and his staff are the best I won't go anywhere else unless it would be another doctor for other reasons.

June 12, 2018 7:00 PM

It was very good. I felt really cared for and listened to during this visit!

May 31, 2018 7:00 PM

Excellent - So knowledgeable, caring and best physician I have ever had. So thankful for his services.

May 16, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Marinov is the best. He cut quickly & finished quickly with as little pain as possible. Very friendly - listens.

May 6, 2018 7:00 PM

Very concerned - Gave me options.

April 18, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Marinov is a very good surgeon & helped me a lot, he's performed 2 surgeries without complications; he and everyone in his office were very helpful & courteous.

March 29, 2018 7:00 PM

This survey did not really apply to my visit. I tried to fill it out correctly. I had gallbladder surgery two days after meeting him in the Luth Gen. Emergency Room. My office visit was a surgery follow up. We agreed that I should stop the antibiotics. I did NOT get a survey for my hospital visit, and I wish I did. Luth Gen. Hospital scheduling does NOT work on weekends. I had to call Dr. Marinov to find out when I would have surgery. There was no call on Sunday, nor on Monday (my day of surgery). I had to call scheduling. When I checked in (registration) they had no record of me. It seems like someone should cover last minute changes & be available on weekends. Everyone was nice and helpful.

March 8, 2018 6:00 PM

I feel he help me out when I needed help. He's 4 stars!

March 1, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Marinov ordered a CT scan without explaining why he thought it might be necessary.

January 17, 2018 6:00 PM

My visit and stay, plus caregiver's were beyond their means for me, excellent.

January 8, 2018 6:00 PM

He was on time!! Took feeding tube out.

January 4, 2018 6:00 PM

The doctor looked to eager to do the surgery.

December 24, 2017 6:00 PM

He made me wait 45 minutes and then spent 5 minutes seeing me. Didn't listen to a word I said.
