I can't say enough about Dr. Marien. He saved my mother's life. His and only his correct diagnosis put her on the correct path to the life saving treatment she is now receiving. Thank you for your kindness and caring. If it wasn't for your knowledge and expertise, my mom would not be here with us. There are no words to convey how we will be forever grateful to you for everything you have done for us. Thank you.

For months I suffered from digestive issues and abdominal pain, and had undergone multiple tests and procedures to find the cause. Unfortunately, it was all in vain, and after three trips to the emergency room, I was finally admitted. With a diagnosis of a bad gallbladder and stomach ulcers, I was scheduled for surgery. I finally felt like relief was in sight, despite the doctors’ apprehension of the problem truly being resolved.

Less than a week post-op, the pain had returned and I was re-admitted to the hospital. Thankfully, Dr. Marien was filling in that day. When he came into my room, he recognized me. I was a patient of his several years ago, as he had helped treat the veins in my legs. Dr. Marien reviewed my most recent CAT scan and had an epiphany. He immediately returned to my room to deliver the good news: He found my problem!

With a brand new diagnosis that I hadn’t heard before, I listened intently as he described that the arteries in my stomach were blocked, and needed stents to open them. He finally discovered the underlying cause of my issues, and I am on the road to recovery.

After months of struggling to find the cause of my digestive issues by other physicians, Dr. Marien had the answer after one careful review of CAT scan. It was a stroke of luck that Dr. Marine was on shift that day, and I’m very appreciative of all that he has done for me, including his follow-up care.

I would like to take a moment to tell you about the great experience that I have had with Dr. Marien and his staff.  I have had problems with varicose veins in my right leg for years.  I ultimately went to see Dr. Marien for treatment.  I had the necessary procedures in his office and now my leg is 100% improved.  Dr. Marien and his staff made me feel very comfortable at every visit and procedure.  They are wonderful to deal with.  I would highly recommend Dr. Marien to anyone in need of vascular or general surgery.

Dr. Marien was highly recommended to help with the veins in my legs that were not only painful and uncomfortable but also looked horrible. He explained my options and the procedures available to treat my veins some of which were medically necessary and some cosmetic. Several treatments were required and I was able to return to my normal activities after a short period of time. Dr. Marien and his staff are friendly and knowledgeable. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The improvement from the treatment is impressive. I just turned 40 and feel like I have a new pair of legs. And, for the first time in several years, I'm not to embarrassed to wear shorts this summer. Thanks!

I had the priviledge of working with Dr. Marien in the surgical and preop areas. He is an excellent surgeon and cares greatly about his patients'. Approximately 2 years ago my husband was diagnosed with an abdominal aortic aneurysm which extended into both iliac arteries. Dr. Marien performed extensive surgery on him and did a fantastic job. It is because of Dr. Marien that he is still able to enjoy his grandchildren today. Dr. Marien was our first and only choice and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is professional and concerned about his patients'.

You have been so kind, thoughtful and caring, that words just can't convey the thanks you so well deserve. You have gone above and beyond, and we couldn't have gotten through everything if it wasn't for your determination and never turning your back. You saw we were in trouble and seemed to understand it meant so much to have you there with us. Faith in your doctor is a very important part that we have in you. We know without you Lee would not be here with us. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

At 43 years old, I was told that my left carotid artery was over 90% blocked by my cardiologist. Surgery was the only safe option, and you and your staff made sure that I was efficiently and properly prepared, answering all my questions along the way. You provided such incredible care and watched me closely throughout my hospital stay. I have a great piece of mind knowing that you are following my progress and will be monitoring my vascular condition closely in the years to come.

It is with the utmost trust and confidence in the ability and expertise of Dr. Brian J. Marien, my vascular surgeon during the past five years, that I unqualifiedly recommend him to any individual in need of vascular treatment or related surgery. He is an extremely competent and caring practitioner whose primary concern is the well-being of his patients.

On October 3, 2011 I became seriously ill and was rushed to the hospital where it was discovered that I had a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. To my good fortune Dr. Marien took on the challenges of my case. I believe that due to his knowledge, quick action and surgical skills my life was saved. I will be forever indebted to Dr. Marien and the entire surgical team. It is without hestitation that I would recommend Dr. Marien to anyone in need of medical services.

I have been under the care of Dr. Marien for about 2 years. I started under his care for an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. On January 6, 2012 Dr. Marien operated on me to repair the Aortic Aneurysm. Prior to the operation I was asked by several nurses who my surgeon was. When I replied Dr. Marien, they all told me I was lucky. I had an excellent surgeon. I would trust the good doctor with my life, if or when surgery was ever needed again.

I have worked with Dr. Brian Marien for well over 10 years in the surgical setting, both as a surgical technician and as an RN circulating nurse. As such, I have been witness to not only his surgical skills and competencies, but also his patient/ family rapport. I find his professionalism impeccable, and skills rivaled by very few of his peers. His abilities and talents go far beyond the norm. I am proud to have the priveledge of working in his operating room, and even more proud to know him as an individual.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Dr. Brian Marien in the operating room for the last 10 years. He is one of the best general and vascular surgeons I have assisted in surgery. He surgical expertise is outstanding. Competent, confident and caring are the words I would use to describe him.

I have had the priveledge and honor to work with Dr. Brian Marien since 2001. Since that time I have come to know his work ethic, dedication to his patients and that he goes above and beyond to ensure the safety of his patients, and also to address the concerns of their families. By working alongside him, I have gained invaluable knowledge which I will carry with me throughout my nursing career.

I have worked with Dr. Brian Marien for over 10 years. In my years of experience, I have met few doctors that have his diagnostic and surgical skills. When working with him I feel comfortable with his ability to provide the patient with the best possible care. I have also been a patient of Dr. Marien's. I can attest that he is truely dedicated to the best outcome and always acted in a professional and compassionate manner.
