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.

Dr Martin is very nice and let us feel very comfortable. He did the adenoids and tonsils surgery to my 2.5 years old son. All other doctors frightened us but Doctor Martin promised us that we have nothing to worry about and he was right. He took a good care of my son and answer any question I had.

I had a terrible experience with this doctor, honestly he is extremely unprofessional. He messed up my nose and my health and refused to return my money. The result of his unprofessional work is the inflammation that I am battling currently with and when I went for the second opinion the doctor recommended me another surgery ASAP !

Dr. Martin has a very gentle way of handling his patient, with tremendous care. He is very knowledgeable and presents all the information while listening to everything the patient has to say. I did not feel rushed and I felt like I was very well taken care of when I went to see him. Further, I had an emergency with my father who is not even his patient, and he went above and beyond without even having to be asked to help me attend to my father's needs. I have the highest regard for Dr. Martin.

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.
