Dr. Martin explained clearly to me what was happening with my shoulder. He answered all of my questions. I was very pleased with the experience. I would recommend him to my family and friends.

Review for Dr. Martin

Dr Aloupis is a gem, who takes time to explain things if I get confused or worried. He listens well and asks questions to understand my concerns before answering. He is highly skilled in doing my exams. His staff are friendly and efficient. I see him for GYN issues and he gets 5 stars.
