What People Say About Dr. Shelden Martin, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Great doctor! Went in for a consultation for a broken shoulder and he was very professional and informative in regards to the surgery, and expectations. Got me in within a few days for surgery and everything went very will. Had 5 months worth of follow-up appointments and he never acted rushed. He took time to make sure everything was healing like it should, and to answer any questions I had. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a good, experienced orthopedic surgeon. I would definitely go back to him.

Fractured shoulder repaired. Since this was an injury that needed repaired ASAP I didn't have time to research valley docs. My Physicians office referred me to Orthoarizona where I was paired with Dr. Martin. He was straight to the point with my prognosis. Very professional, confident, experienced. Surgery was outpatient. I'm 4 mo's out from surgery. PT's done. Almost good as new! Follow up in a year. Shoulder replacement's in my future. Hope he hasn't retired by then. Btw, very caring staff!

If you are not a "rich" star athlete he will care less about your care... case in point. Two failed shoulder replacements. Dr Martin has no concern...

Saw Dr Martin OCT 2017 and after he evaluated my shoulder we agreed to try Physical therapy before surgery however surgery was more than likely inevitable but Both of us wanted to be conserveted which I appreciated. Unfortunately although PT helped it was not the cure and July 2018 I had shoulder surgery. All I can say is he prepared me for what to potentially expect and It was exactly as he had prepared me for if not better. Shoulder is 100% now thanks to Dr Martin and team.

Dr. Martin was absolutely spot on from the first day I went in to his office through my last follow up! He was patient with me even though I didn't believe I had torn my rotator cuff and lastly, my bicep tendon! I had a frozen shoulder going into surgery and he had to stretch it out first and then do the surgery. I also had to go to Physical Therapy 4 days later, but it paid off and I did every exercise every day for those first four months! I am released within 6 months of surgery!

I absolutely Loved everything about Dr. Sheldon Martin. Very professional and great bed side manner. He was kind, always concerned with how I felt, explained everything before and after surgery thoroughly. I always felt that I was in good hands. Very strict with the PT parodical...which I liked. I have been released today...because the healing process was a success. Excited!!! But if I need any, Dr. Martin said just to call him. So awesome. I have sent 3 of my friends to him.

Total knee replacement could not have gone better. I have not taken 1 pain pill since coming out of surgery. I was off walker and cane within 3 days. 12 weeks later and doing great. Dr. Martin is very straight forward, and tells it like it is.

Dr. Martin is a superior surgeon with a no-nonsense approach and a kind demeanor. He and his team repaired my AC joint and clavicle. I was quite anxious going into the situation, but Dr. Martin took the time to explain my problem, options and outcomes. He did not hurry me during my office visits. And he made sure that all of my questions were answered. If you want to heal correctly, check him out. He's got all the right stuff.

Recently had a shoulder replacement by Dr. Martin. Dr. Martin and his staff are professional, experienced practitioners and I would highly recommend Dr. Martin to anyone requiring an orthopedic physician. He took the time to explain in detail what I should expect before, during and after surgery; and was responsive and attentive to my needs. It was a very positive experience thanks to Dr. Martin.

I have had a partial knee replacement by Dr. Sheldon Martin approximately 1.5 years ago. Within 3-6 months ( & physical therapy) I hardly realized it wasn't' my original knee. Within 1 year following I've completed a marathon and an ultrmarathon. My goals keep accelerating as I have NO limitations with my "new Partial"! Thank You! Highly Recommend :) JM Gilbert, AZ

I was referred to Dr. Martin by my primary care doctor for a torn meniscus in my knee. All my interactions with Dr Martins staff was great. Dr. Martin was professional, competent and did a great job. I would highly recommend Dr. Martin and use him again in the future.

Nothing but great things to say about Dr. Martin. I have had 38 surgeries in the past mostly orthopedic, and he is been one of the best. He replaced my shoulder without incident I highly recommend this young man for the job

Dr. Martin performed a partial knee replacement for me in October and I couldn’t be happier. I’m walking without a limp and pain now. He was always compassionate and cared how you were feeling. Thanks for a better quality of life Dr. M.

Dr. Martin gave me a sense of calm and confidence about my options available and treatment needs. He answered all my questions in detail. He encouraged me that with therapy and the surgery my knee would respond very normally. My follow-up appointments went very well and he was highly pleased with my progress. He continued to stress the continuity of my therapy.
