Dr. Martin and Mandy are incredible!
I have been coming to Dr. Martin since I sustained an injury when I was 10 years old, and now I am currently 17 and just had my 6 month post op appointment. Throughout the years Dr. Martin has given me great care and has always helped me recover to my full potential.
My doctor asked plenty of questions and she made sure that I was comfortable with whatever options were available.
We came to Dr. Martin when my son fractured his arm in PE Class. Not only did they get us in an hour after calling the office. We were able to get Xrays, see Dr. Martin and have a cast applied in only 1 hours time. We didn't feel rushed or confused during any of the process. Her staff was friendly and even made the cast color selection fun for my son.
Dr. Martin and her entire staff, from front desk (Michelle and Janelle) to the nurse (Julie) to Dr. Martin...top notch Thank you for listening and being so pleasant.I have complete confidence in Dr. Martin and her evaluation and diagnosis. Will definitely be referring! Cheers!
She genuinely puts my comfort and concerns above just a clinical evaluation. Having been a competitive athlete and a professional dancer, I've had my share of doctors and clinicians visits and care... and Dr. Martin is right at the top of my list of the best.
love Stephanie
very nice and personable.
Dr. Martin has treated my 3 children for 15 years. When I broke my Fibula, she was the only person that I considered for my surgery. She exceeded my expectations.... and because of my surgery, I will have full use of my leg and be able to run, excercise, and etc. I highly recommend her.
I always enjoy my experience with Dr.Martin and her staff. They are amazing. They have great time management. They are Attentive, Compassionate, Thorough and Loving. Great Team.
