Patient Reviews (3)
in La Quinta, CA |
Dr. Martin is caring, knowledgeable, takes the time to explain things, has an upbeat personality, and a sense of humor. My husband had an emergency eye condition and she cleared her schedule so he could come in immediately to see her. And then I had an eye problem that sounded like it could be serious and she took no chances but had me come in right away to see her. Additionally Dr. Martin did both are cataract surgeries. She is the only female ophthalmologist in the desert and she is a gem!

I have a severe eye infection on eye she did surgery on and has refused to treat me and unless I pay $45.00 for paperwork that is needed for meds needed to treat me plus the meds, suggest I go elsewhere. My new surgery was scheduled for the end of the month, but now being told to go elsewhere, it's very difficult to be accepted by another Dr because of her under handed ways. The whole staff are not honest. Do not go there!

Dr Martin performed cataract surgery on both my eyes about two years ago with outstanding success! I cannot recommend her highly enough.
