Very bad because Dr Martin lied to me about my Asthma condition now since if it was a 40 my oxygen level I would definitely be going to the ER right now. I think that Dr Martin needs to be fired Forever.

Not only is Dr. Martin an excellent pulmonologist, he is also a compassionate human being. When I was at RI Hospital for a condition completely unrelated to my lungs, he surprised me with a visit to my bedside. He was a Rock of Gibraltar for my children when my life was threatened in 2016 by a mysterious lung problem and I was transported to Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston at night. I was the subject of a medical conference and remain a medical enigma. I see Dr. Martin tomorrow for a breathing test and am looking forward to chatting with him again.
