This practice, in my opinion, has turned into a 'colonoscopy surgery mill'. You don't have but 3 min. of interaction with Dr. Martin from office visit to exiting the surgery center. I just had THE WORST colonoscopy experience of my life & will never have another one. The caring has left the practice!

I was a patient of Dr. Martin's for 2 gastroenterology related tests, after referral by my primary care doctor. I had extensive delays in working with Dr. Martin - I encountered weeks of delay in getting tests scheduled, and the results were also weeks before I heard from her office. I have email access to their office, and her PA was attempting to be helpful, but the doctor was MIA. I had 2 in person encounters with Dr. Martin and she was informative and helpful.

Dr. Martin has been my gastroenterologist for quite a few years, but this last year I have been unable to get an appointment with her. She has me now seeing her P.A. I am continuing to have issues that cause me extreme pain at times, but cannot get an appointment in a timely manner.

Yesterday, I had a colonoscopy with Dr. Martin in Sarasota. When I arrived for the procedure, I was informed that Dr. Martin was running about an hour late due to office patients that needed special care. Of course I was upset after following the timetable set up for my procedure, but once the delay was over Dr. Martin was very professional and took her time with my procedure. She and her staff were expert in their treatment of me and I could not be happier with the outcome. Dr. Martin is great.

Dr Martin visited me before and after my colonoscopy. She was very caring and asked if I had any questions. I highly recommend her.

Extremely difficult time getting in to see the Doctor for what I deemed an urgent issue, ended up with her PA who then consulted with the Dr. who followed up with colonoscopy. I was told to follow-up with an appointment in 2 months, the earliest appointment was 3.5 months and my problem was never addressed. Too many patients to see in too little time.
