He is a TERRIBLE surgeon. He did what was supposed to be a simple thumb ligament repair and damaged the nerve going to my hand. It took me a year to get most of my movement back. And HE was UPSET that I went to the Emergency Room because i WAS IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN. Thought it made him look bad....more

Dr Martin performed a total shoulder replacement and the results were exceptional. The lack of pain and fast recovery was impressive. I have full range of motion and strength in the shoulder and am glad I had the surgery. Dr Martin's pre-surgery advice and post surgery care are great.
