Wonderful physician! /Dr. Martin took time to explain my condition to my husband and I. Open heart surgery is a very scary thing, but somehow I felt God had placed me in the right hands. My surgery went well. Dr. Martin spent 45 minutes explaining the procedure to my family after completing a three hour surgery on me. My family was so impressed with him. Dr. Martin stated I would be in the hospital for 4-10 days. I was home in four days. My recovery has been remarkable. Thank you Dr. Martin!

This was not my first trip to visit Dr.Martin and definitely not going to be my last due to the required procedures he has performed on my wife and myself we both are still here to enjoy our extended families. Dr.Martin is a very particular surgeon and well known in the medical field.I will highly recommend him for any surgery especially major surgery. Dee Pool

Dr. Martin and staff have really helped my husband and myself. My husband had to have open heart surgery with a quad by-pass. Having never been through this type of surgery, it was terrifying. All were there for us, to explain and guide us through this. Afterwards the office staff were friendly and very helpful. We would recommend this office for Cardiac Surgery to anyone that needs this. Thank you, Jerry and Debbie Phillips

I've been trying to reach Dr. Martin's office for follow up appointment. All numbers listed have been disconnected. Pakridge Hospital was no help. Saying that if med line didn't have correct number that no one would.

This Man saved my wives life Saturday night and took the time to explain everything to us and in layman's terms. several times until we understood. You have no idea what a special, talented, beautiful persons life you saved! You are our hero and we owe you more than I could ever repay. But you get free plumbing for life for starters. That is the least I could do. Thank you and thank you from everyone who knows Julie. We owe you everything .

Let me say this: five stars isn't enough to score this doctor. He is awesome!!! Excellent surgeon. All my aunts and uncles and friends always call and ask his name. I have had three surgeries and all of them have turned out great. If you are looking for someone who really knows his job and makes best recommendations based on your health and his knowledge and experience he is the one! A definite 10 star!
