Anonymous, Mass General Patient Gateway

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.
