I am in my late seventies and have a pre-existing condition which makes me especially vulnerable to Covid 19. I needed a refill for a prescription and was told I needed a visit with Dr. Martin. She refilled the prescription but I had to make an appointment. Due to the recent surge of Covid 19, I called the day before and asked if I could have a telemedicine appt. I was told I needed to come in when it was for a prescription refill. When I arrived I was told I had an appointment with the nurse. The nurse said that she was going to schedule a colonoscopy. I said I didn't want one. She said that's all she could do. Dr. Martin wasn't there and I would have to schedule an appt. to have my questions answered and to review my prescriptions. I was not told previously that this was what the appointment was for. I was brought in under false pretenses. They did say I wouldn't be charged for the visit. I am quite concerned that I could have been exposed to Covid 19 for no reason!

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.

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.
