After my procedure, I did recommend Dr. Martin to my wife. He was professional without being stiff, friendly without being too familiar, and had some humor. His stitches were the best I've ever h ad and the incision has healed without any scar.

I have recommended Dr. Martin to family and friends. He cares about you as a person and reason for being there. His assistants Lycia and Kim along with others in the office have always been very good and helpful in person or by phone.

Dr Martin is nice, friendly and took the time to explain the procedure and recovery to me. He allowed me to ask questions and took the time to answer all of them. Great bedside manner! I would definitely recommend Dr Martin to my family and friends!
in Salt Lake City, UT |
I would highly recommend Dr. Martin. I found him to be personable and knowledgeable. Most of all, I felt he was very competent and experienced with my symptoms and subsequent surgery for De Quervain's Syndrome. From start to finish, this was a very positive and professional experience.
Salt Lake City, Utah |
My recent experience with Dr. Martin was outstanding and I would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking an orthopedic surgeon. He was immediately responsive to my search for a surgeon to evaluate a broken wrist and scheduled surgery the next day. Dr. Martin was completely open to questions and concerns. Follow up appointments were efficient, referral to an excellent physical therapist was immediate and highly beneficial. The surgical team at St Marks is excellent, friendly and professional.
in North Salt Lake |
Inept, apathetic, complacent, and arrogant accurately describe Dr. Martin. He gives little if any weight to patient input. He amputated far too much of my finger. He said he could deepen my web space by 1/2. He deepend it by 1/16th. The M.A. who attempted to remove my sutures used no gloves, had long nails and a ring. She left three sutures in my hand explaining that she could not tell what was connected to what and to remove them myself. I've tried. I still have sutures and a hole in my hand

Have already recommended him. He is a talented surgeon with a professional attitude.
