I have been a patient of Will Martin since he opened his first practice! He and his staff are amazing. I wouldn't go to any other physician in Richmond. TSometimes you have to wait, but, it is well worth it because when you are with Dr. Martin, you are the only patient in the world.
Couldn't live without him

If I could give Dr. Martin 6 stars I would. My biggest fear is the day he retires. I had a traumatic experience with another PCP in one of the larger practices in the area, that landed me in the hospital with what could of been permanent kidney damage. My former PCP diagnosed my back pain as a pulled muscle, and prescribed muscle relaxers. My medical history clearly stated that since age 12 I had suffered from chronic kidney infectons, and kidney stones. I came back that week because the symptoms were much worse. He actually sent me to Chippenham with a prescription for what I thought was a request for some form of additional testing. He was actually trying to have me committed to Tucker's because he was scared I might hurt myself. He asked me that in his office, and I looked at him like he was the crazy one, and I replied " of course not, why would you even ask me such a thing"? It's not like I was a hypochondriac, or had any prior history of "self diagnosis" or "self injury" I just knew my body, and I disagreed with his diagnosis, and the treatment he prescribed. I wasn't hysterical in his office, I just wanted him to re-evaluate me, but my allotted 10 minutes must have been up, so he dismissed me like I was crazy. Luckily at the hospital they noticed that my physical symptoms were real, and not in my head. They did not admit me in to Tuckers. They did however admit me in the hospital for severe dehydration, and a dangerously severe kidney infection. They strongly suggested that I find a new PCP ASAP. If he had just checked my temperature or blood pressure, he would have known they were both quite elevated, and that something was wrong. He certainly would have known had he checked my urine for blood or protein. He had no problem taking my $25 copay for the second time that week though. I was very weary of doctors after that. My friend had been seeing Dr. Martin for years, so I took her advise and made an appointment. Thank god I did. He restored my faith in doctors again. He has one nurse, and one front office person, so you always see the same people. They are both excellent. It's a tight knit practice, so they always greet you by first name right when you walk in. It's not like the larger multi doctor practices that herd people in like cattle, quadruple booking appointments, and only allow the doctor 10 minutes per patient. What happened to me before would never happen with Dr. Martin, because he listens to you, he never "rushes" you through an appointment, and he has no problem re-evaluating. If he can't resolve the issue, he will make sure to get you in with someone who can. Dr. Martin's nurse took the time on her own lunch break to call me with some cancer screening test results that she knew I had been really worried about. She knew that I would be relieved to hear that they came back normal, and she didn't want me sitting around stressing myself out all day. They always try to accommodate appointments, especially same day sick visits. In fact he was completely booked when I had to come in one day, but I was experiencing a lot of facial/ear pain, so they told me to come in at 12:O0 when the office closed for lunch, and he saw me on his own lunch break. It was a good thing because I had a severe sinus and ear infection that had actually ruptured my ear drum. It wasn't just your run of the mill sinus infection/earache I thought it was. Refills for medications, referrals to specialists, and prior authorization requests for insurance are ALWAYS completed promptly. They treat their patients like family. When I lost my job and insurance, he charged me a ridiculously low price for office visits (less than my insurance copay) and sometimes he would tell them up front when I was checking out "no charge" They even go as far as to call around to different pharmacies for uninsured patients, to compare retail drug costs, so the needed medication is accessible to these patients. Dr. Martin and his staff are compassionate and they treat their patients the way they would want to be treated themselves. I would recommend him to ANYONE without thinking twice. He is a wonderful doctor, a wonderful man, and both he and his staff have hearts of gold.

Best Doc ever! I have been w/Dr Martin for 12 years and will be a patient until he retires! I have never met a physician who is as genuine and caring as Dr Martin, and am so thankful that I have him on my side!
Best Physician I have ever had

Dr. Martin is an independent physician who practices real medicine-he listens, is compassionate and has expert clinical opinion. His office staff is exceptional. I would recommend him with no reservation as one of the top physicians I have ever used.
A Fine General practice physician

Dr. Martin has been our family physician for nine years, and we have never been disappointed in his care. He listens, takes time to explain as well as gather all possible information from patients. He is kind and compassionate. He knows when to refer to a specialist. The office staff is available and responsive. The only rating other than "excellent" I would give is in area of wait time--and it is because he takes the time necessary with each person--and that includes me, so I am very tolerant of this with Dr. Martin. I have suggested him to several neighbors and friends, and they also have had a positive experience.

Dr Martin spends every minute necessary with each patient. This can leave you with a slightly longer wait time, but it's worth it!
Lucky my kid is alive!

Dr. Martin misdiagnosed one of my children with a serious but common disorder, even with me standing in front of him saying "he has every symptom except one." He blew us off, did some basic labwork, and sent us on our way. A few days later we got a frantic phone call saying "we just got the test results, get your child to the ER immediately." There was a simple test that could and should have been done on the spot, but Dr. Martin would not listen to me. My child almost died!
