Richard Martin is very rude, inconsiderate and condescending. He also is not honest about what he puts in his notes on patient's records. I DO NOT recommend him for Rheumatology. He should not be practicing in medicine and needs his license taken away.

Seen him for years and, while he used to be very proactive and responsive, he has stopped providing adequate care. He does not touch or look at my joints, continuing to insist that I do not have active arthritis. I follow all instructions, but am not getting any relief from my pain. Scare tactics...Read More
