  1. Marc Shouse & I shared most of medical school and much of the following 35 years in Northern California. I marveled at his energy and charisma. I worked for Marc half of the years from 1982 to 2005, sharing our professional lives but not our social lives. Marc was one of the more remarkable persons in my experience. M Bruce Parker MD FACEP

  2. I was unaware of Marcus’ passing, until just now. He offered me a job at Ridgecrest Community Hospital, during a difficult period in my life, and offered compassion, support and guidance during the seven years I worked there.

  3. I remember Marcus fondly. For some reason I have been thinking about him lately and it is with a shock that I read about his passing. He was a kind, brilliant man and physician. I am devastated.
