About Me

Care Philosophy

I am an ear, nose and throat doctor. I try to help people decide what the best treatment is for them rather than trying to impose my views on the patient. Not every treatment regimen fits every patient, and I let the patient decide what is best for for them.

Dr. Martin is excellent and very efficient. However, his office staff are rude on the phones. I overpaid a copay and I have been unable to receive a refund. It has been frustrating as every time I call I am expected to wait 10-15 minutes.
