Seemed a bit rushed, like he couldn't wait to get me out of the office. Never asked what I did for work, which to me seems like an important part of an assessment for someone with knee pain to see if it interfered with my work or ADLs. Waited over 45 minutes for a early morning appointment. How can you already be behind for a 9 o clock appointment?

Clear explanation of injury and options

Dr. Martin did a complete exam of my knee, showed me my precise injury, and explained all of the options I had. Very patient and understanding. Surgery went well and I am healing nicely in rehab. A knowledgeable, professional, and understanding doc.

Dr. Martin

What a jerk Dr. Cant handle any negative reports on his results. The worst bed side manner, EVER! Many people wonder why they even went to this hot headed Dr. I hope you don't make the mistake I did. There are so many good Drs. in his practice do yourself a favor and go to one of them. If your smart.
