Dr. James L Martin has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

Amazing Family Physician

Dr. Martin has treated my family for years. He was very compassionate and effective when my grandfather began to suffer the effects of psychotic depression. He has helped me with cost effective care since I lost my job. Mary, the nurse at the practice, is a wonderful and experienced professional...and you don't even feel it when she gives you a shot! I would enthusiastically recommend this practice to anyone.

excellent doctor

Dr Martin does that rare thing - he listens - and he seems to know what questions to ask and he either has a phenomenol memory or he reviews ones file before a follow-up visit. I recently moved out of the Lehigh Valley, and the one thing/person I would hsve taken would be Dr. Martin. I have chosen other doctors here, but have found then similar to doctors I have known elsewhere, they don't really listen - or remember you from visit to visit.
