    I had one telehealth call with Dr. Martin. It was very rushed; even though it was our first meeting, I think he spent 10 or 15 minutes with me, and he was clearly anxious to be done with it. He was unprepared, asking basic questions that were in my file if he’d bothered to look at it. And he was very unfriendly. I got the impression that he had no desire to have me as a client, let alone help me.

    This Doctor, though amiable in person, has too many patients and obligations to take the time when a situation is not cookie cutter and adolescent medical conditions need to be factored in. We felt a high level of added stress trying to chase this provider for follow up help, after his initial diagnosis. What we discussed seemed to be forgotten as soon as the visit was over. Messages took days to get answered, habitually. Paperwork was lost for weeks even when timing was critical, and we were told it was never received (though the other office confirmed submission). The office “has no email option” for sending requests, forms, or even blank paperwork to be filled out. This made it ten times harder to get coordination and documentation for work, school, and other providers offices in any reasonable amount of time. The front desk person was kind and seems to be a great employee, and tried to help us as much as she could, but this Doctor is scattered.
