About Me

I believe care must be based on an individual's needs.  To do this, one must spend time and get to know the patient.  Concierge medicine has allowed me to spend the amount of time I feel is appropriate to make comprehensive recommendations concerning patient care.

Dr. Martin is an excellent physician. He listens carefully to your concerns and offers the appropriate response. He is aware of patient needs both personally, and financially. His office responds quickly with appointments and needed information. My wife and I recommend him highly and we have been patients of his for almost his entire career.

Office visit! The staff and Dr. Martin got me in the same day I called. The conducted an EKG and compared it to my last one. Dr. Martin referred me to the 5th floor heart clinic where they did a treadmill EKG with contrast. This was done to make sure there was no blockage in blood flow to the heart.

I would not recommend anyone to go see Dr. Richard Martin. My grandmother was a patient of his for many years and paid thousands of dollars to him annually in order for her to get "better care". She has been in chronic pain and has been over prescribed antibiotics and pain medications to fix her infections over the last two years. She has since changed doctors and has been diagnosed with TWO life threatening illnesses that could have been fixed by Dr. Martin. He has been extremely negligent for someone of his stature. 10/10 DO NOT RECOMMEND!

Dr. Martin has been my physician for the past twenty years. He and his excellent staff are always thorough and have plenty of time for all my questions. The Legacy Health practice means I get immediate responses to my questions and needs, including same-day appointments. Jenny, his nurse, is awesome!

Excellent doctor! Caring. Compassionate. Personable. Attentive. Kind. Thorough. Knowledgeable. I saw Dr. Martin for years but didn't initially follow him to the concierge practice. Searching for a new dr. of his caliber proved difficult. I was used to such a high standard of care from Dr. Martin and other doctors just didn't measure up in my book. So, I'm back and very relieved to put my trust in him again. 24/7 is true! Dr. Martin and his nurse are always available when I need them. The best!

I absolutely love this practice. Every time you walk in you can tell they enjoy doing what they do. When you call the office is very responsive and have a true commitment in keeping you well or setting you on the right course of getting well. The relationship I have with this practice feels more like a family than a doctor patient relationship. Dr. Martin & staff are truly amazing!

Dr. Martin and his staff have provided me with the highest level of caring, compassionate medical care that I have had in many years. Outstanding communication re lab and imaging results and specialist referrals. Having been a patient in another concierge practice, my experiences with Legacy Health have been far superior and I recommend them highly.

First class healthcare services on my schedule. Our lives are busy enough and when your not feeling great, you don’t want to have to wait for weeks to see a doctor. With Legacy Health, I have experienced same day service. I’m not sure how the team does it, but they always seem to work me into the schedule. I never feel like my unscheduled appointment created a burden on the office team or Dr. Martin. A physician you can trust is peace of mind. I found that peace with Dr. Martin & Team.

This is the medical service that we had in the past, before the "only ten minutes per patient" medical regime. You are never rushed. reception is friendly. Atmosphere is relaxing. Dr. Martin and his nurse are excellent. Love Legacy!

My concierge doctor suddenly resigned from her facility and after doing a search of the few doctors offering concierge services in Nashville, I found Dr. Martin and very smoothly transitioned to his practice with the help of Pam and Jennie, his nurses. He is a family man, very personable, takes a lot of time to evaluate his patients and treated me like a queen! As an added benefit, he can easily access my records at Centennial and collaborate with my cardiologist there. Need pampering? Call him!

We had a wonderful experience. Our first visit was extraordinary, Dr. Martin cuts through the difficult medical lingo and is very forthcoming in his layman explanations for issues, the why's and why nots of the entire scope of your health. I am so appreciative (wife of patient who concurs) that I am no longer the "Health Police" Dr. Martin is but in a gentle and realistic way he relays his message to you and your family. THANK YOU. The staff, Ginny & Pam are par excellance!
