Dr. Martin will actually sit down and listen to what you have to say about what's going on with your body. Most doctors just come in and start writing scripts when he actually will listen to you and talk to you about your problem and, what will work with you to resolve the issue. If he can't help, he at least tries to find someone who can: but, most of the time he has a team that can do it all.

Dr. Martin is now working at Cahaba Pain and Spine Care. My first visit with this office was a complete waste of time. He told me that I have Fibromyalgia which generally means you have unexplained nerve pain. I've had multiple surgeries on my neck for herniated discs. I think we know why I have nerve pain. I also have bulging discs in my lower back. 5 or more times people came into the room to have papers signed and he was texting during my visit. Don't waste your time, find a dr that cares.
