Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Martin "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."
