Dr Martin has always taken the time to explain both conditions and treatment options with me. To the extent of having me even look into the microscope to understand gout crystals. He has also taken the time to show me images and relevant case histories on the internet. He has made it clear that I can call his office any time between appointments for treatment and pain relief. I appreciate his professionalism and focus on patient outcomes.

I have been seeing Dr. Martin for several years with no relief. My last apt I brought in my wife as a patient advocate and he had a real problem with her asking questions. He made sure to read off his resume and explain why he was the best of the best. Does not allow for reasonable amount of time for apts, shares political views and does a lot more talking than listening.

He did not take time to really listen to me. He is a bit abrupt as well.

Dr. Martin was honest and frank. Sometimes that's hard to take but yet so appreciated...he's sure of what he knows but also able to set aside his ego and admit that what's going on is outside of his expertise and urged us to seek other help and pointed us in the direction we should proceed in. He was extremely helpful and caring in getting us a date to Mayo Clinic that was six weeks ahead of our previous appointment. My son and I a very grateful to him.
Although I'm sure Dr Martin has all the experience and knowledge, as he made sure to repeatedly to point out, he would serve his patients much better to actually listen to what they have to say. He did not hear what I had to say at all. I left his office in tears. I had heard the same about him from a coworker who sees another physician there, but I tried to go in with an open mind. What a complete waste of time.
