i WOULD LOVE TO DELETE MY PRIOR POST. i HAD A HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE IN THE OFFICE. i CALLED THE NEXT DAY AND SPOKE WITH THE OFFICE MANAGER. sHE WAS VERY HELPFUL IN GETTING EVERYTHING SMOOTHED OUT AND i WAS ABLE TO SEE DR MARTEL AGAIN. hE ASSURED ME THAT THIS WAS A HORRIBLE MISUNDERSTANDING AND MY EYE HEALTH WAS THE MOST IMPORTANT TO HIM. i WISH i COULD HAVE SPOKE TO HIM BEFORE i WROTE MY PRIOR REVIEW. i AM SORRY AND HE IS A WONDERFUL DOCTOR. hE KNOWS HIS STUFF MAYBE NEEDS A LITTLE HELP IN THE FRONT OFFICE. MY CONTINUED VISION IS WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT TO ME AND YES YOU WILL WAIT BUT THAT IS BECAUSE HE IS SO GOOD AND EVERYONE WANTS TO GET IN TO SEE HIM. HE TOLD ME NEXT TIME i HAVE A PROBLEM LIKE THIS WAS TO CALL IN AND DIRECTLY TALK TO HIM WITH i NICE HUG IN THE END. HE DEFINITELY IS A COMPASSIONATE DOCTOR AND CARES TOTALLY ABOUT THE EYE ISSUES. i WAS TOTALLY BLIND IN MY RIGHT EYE AND NOW i CAN SEE AGAIN. WHAT MORE CAN A PATIENT ASK FOR.
