Dr. Martin and his staff exceeded our expectations in every area! Thank you!
in Suwanee, GA |
Great Doctors are like empty middle seats on a plane; a tough find. Kind of like Dr Martin. Not only is he a skilled surgeon, but his bedside manner is "old school", and I mean that as the highest compliment. He took an extraordinary amount of time to explain my hernia surgery process so I knew EXACTLY what was going to happen during surgery, afterwards for recovery, and future outlook. I can honestly say I went into the surgery totally at ease. More than just a great Doctor, but a great human.

Dr. Wallace Martin is an excellent physician who is a highly skilled surgeon and has a wonderfully kind plus humble bedside manner. He has built his own surgical suites and hired excellent staff to help support his vision for quality patient care. His surgical suites are attached to Gwinnett Medical Center in Lawrenceville but are billed as Ambulatory Surgical Care which saves on cost. The patient is not nickled and dimed to death!! I highly recommend Dr. Martin and his nice professional team!

Dr. Martin was recommended by my PCP for a double hernia procedure which was completed by laparoscopy. Dr. Martin took the time to explain the procedure and answered all of my questions. He and his entire staff are very professional, courteous and he doesn't keep you waiting! I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring this type of surgery.

If you need gallbladder surgery, Dr. Wallace Martin is your man! The office was wonderful and able to fit me in the same day. Dr. Martin spent a lot of time explaining the procedure and I felt very comfortable with his ability and experience. Everything went as he said it would. The follow up visit was the same, he spent time with me explaining the pathology report and how to proceed forward. Thank you Dr. Martin!!

Dr. Martin provided me a through explanation of what was going to happen before, during, and after my surgery. He was very kind and caring and I felt confident in having him perform my surgery; he provided background of how many surgeries like mine he performed, and was available for any questions that I needed to have answered. I won't hesitate to go back to his practice or refer friends and family.
