getting to meet and speak with Dr Marra and his team was an AMAZING experience. Dr Marra was friendly and courteous. He explained to me in detail what was going on with my shoulder, told me what options of treatment I had and explained what surgery and recovery would look like. Then he patiently answered my questions. I had been in pain for several weeks and wanted to get a plan in place. I felt confident in and comfortable with Dr Marra and his team so quickly that I knew I wanted Dr Marra do the surgery for me. I left his office not having any second thoughts and was excited that a plan was finally in place!

I can't say enough about Dr. Marra. He was a second opinion on my shoulder. He explained my injury in language I understood. He exuded real confidence that the problem could be addressed and was patient with my questions. I understand that he is very well-regarded at Northwestern and that he is an excellent physician in his field, and yet he gave me his full attention as a patient. His office staff seem like they love their work. usually a testimonial to the doctor they work for.
