Self-verified patient of Dr. Richard C Martin - Posted on December 22nd, 2017
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?
