What People Say About Dr. Claudia Martin, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

She was wonderful and very caring and gave me all my options first so that I knew what I was getting into. It was a very serious operation. I knew that after surgery that getting any feeling in my left leg was only a 1/3 chance and a 1/3 chance it might get worse. But miraculously I got full function of my left leg back. Mind you I had been dragging my left leg around for over 5 days. Full function returned.

First appointment waited 3 hours past appointment time to be told wait would be another hour if we wanted to go get coffee. 1st appointment she told me and RN advocate one diagnosis, follow up appointment denied statement, cancelled further appointments and no answer at her office for 5 1/2 months. Then received a letter in the month of office closing, stating office was moving to Virginia. I would not recommend this Physician, EVER!

Dr Martin performed a neck surgery for me in 2015 with excellent results, no loss of motion and no more pain. I then had her perform a Back surgery for me in the middle of 2016, again with the same results. Excellent care, and very personable. The Office staff is also terrific. They get me in right away and keep me well informed.
