What Patients Say

Testimonials

I have had a couple of surgeries and a few procedures with Dr. Martin and he is amazing. His whole staff is great and extremely helpful. I have had to wait on occasion but when I got in they took their time and didn’t rush me. I was included in the discussion of what should be done.

Linda Schillberg, Google.com

Amazing, thoughtful physician who takes the time with his patients and takes a very conservative approach re: surgery.

Nancy Barrett, Google.com

I am now 6 mos post arthroscopy for 2 torn cartilages. Dr Martin has been excellent from start to finish. I feel so lucky to have had him as my surgeon. My knee feels normal.
