He worked on my right shoulder 2 times due to a severe injury. My shoulder is almost perfect in the way it moves. I had almost no pain. I knew my arm was going to be alright before I left the hospital. A big thank you to Dr. Martin, his team, and Pierre in physical therapy!

Dr. Martin did not fully diagnosis my hand injury. I went for 15 months with his recommended treatment until I obtained a second opinion. The next Dr. spent time and determined the extent of my problem. Dr. Martin took one x-ray whereas the second doctor took 4 different angles and diagnosed the problem and is now working with me on a correct treatment plan. Had Dr. Martin done surgery it would have been in a different part of my hand. Dr. Martin was in a hurry and did not take the proper time to help.

Dr. Martin and staff were great. They got me in as soon as possible with a broken wrist. The surgery and recovery was a great success. The incision on my wrist was very faint. Dr. Martin explained everything that was going on with my wrist and showed me xrays so I could understand the fracture and healing process. I would highly recommend Dr. Martin and staff.

I went to Dr Martin with pain in fore arm and hand thinking it was from another arm injury I had. He told me it wasn’t, and I needed surgery. Thinking I would still have the pain, not really believing him... ...He fixed my pain, it is gone! I can hold a cup of coffee, write a note, hold hands with someone. No more pain in fore arm or hand. Hands down, he is the best!!! Thanks Dr Martin and team. ??

I was very fortunate to be referred to Dr Martin for a revision surgery to my left elbow. I found him to be an outstanding physician and skilled surgeon. I even had him operate on my right elbow. I thought he was very easy to talk to and explained everything perfectly to me. I highly recommend Dr. Martin to everyone I met. I’m comfortable with him as my surgeon.

After seriously injuring my shoulder, severe pain kept me from dressing myself, household chores, sleeping, etc. Dr. Martin explained the injuries, what it would take to repair them. After surgery I had almost no pain and after four months am back to full range of motion in the shoulder. Dr. Martin and his rehab team did a wonderful job for me. I highly recommend them to anyone with shoulder, arm, hand injuries.

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. I would not recommend him to my worst enemy!!!

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.

I have been going to Dr. Martin the past six months to repair my shoulder my ATV crushed. I have had two surgeries with him. I think he did a great job on my shoulder and I would recommend him to everyone. He seems to be a perfectionist, which is what you want in a surgeon. He gets on your case if he feels you have not done your exercises, but I can tell he does that because he really wants you to recover fully as soon as possible. I am so grateful for his skills in putting me back together.

Dr Martin is very personable and very patient with his patients, never felt rushed - can ask any questions with easy to understand answers. He repaired my shoulder and explained my surgery, recovery and rehab so I knew just what to expect. He is very competent. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic surgery! Appointments were easy to schedule with his very friendly staff. His office is clean and my wait time was just moments!

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.
