“Dr. Martin has replaced both of my knees and they are perfect! He is compassionate, empathetic, brilliant, modest, competent, creative, and very gifted with knee surgeries. He helped me when I didn't know who else to turn to. He truly cares about his patients and does the very best he can to improve their situation. After he replaced my first knee, with his precision and skill, it never occurred to me to look for another doctor for the second knee. It was like, "Let's Do This!". Then he corrected a complication from someone else's surgery so I would have a better chance to walk normally, which came true just a few months later. If it hadn't been for his skills and creativity, things wouldn't have worked out for me those few months later, so I owe him a ton of gratitude. I trust him to make the right decisions for my (and his patients') benefit when any issue arises during surgery. He is also funny, which comes in handy. :) I Highly, Highly Recommend and Trust Dr. Martin and His Staff.” –Vicki
“Dr. Martin is WONDERFUL! His caring, compassionate care is second to none for shoulder diagnosis, treatment and surgical resolutions. He takes just the right amount of time to understand symptoms and suggest options for consideration. His staff is amazing also. Thanks, Dr. Martin, for your outstanding care!” – The Wehmeyers
“I adore Dr. Martin. He's one of the few doctors I have encountered that actually listens. He explains things well and answers all your questions. I've seen orthopedic surgeons for a few surgeries outside of Dr. Martin's areas of specialty, and none of them compare. He is the best.”
