Felt that I was in very good hands during the procedure with this care provider. Showed great care with my problem, and explained the upcoming procedure and expected results.


Dr. Martin came highly recommended to me and I would tell anyone who had an eye problem to trust him with their problem. I was very pleased with the care I received.


I was very pleased with Dr. Martin's ability to clearly explain my condition. I felt listened to and heard.


This doctor is very good.


Dr. Martin provided expert, customer focused care. He was thorough, knowledgeable and skilled. I have a complicated medical history related to my eye and Dr. Martin was able to provide a thorough diagnosis and share treatment options.


Excellent, understandable explanation of condition


top care.


Excellent experience from diagnosis to find outcome.


Dr. Martin is a thoughtful, caring, expert and a professional in every way.


The doctor is always friendly and caring. He even wrote a letter that I needed and mailed me 2 copies which I received in a few days.


My experience and interactions with Dr. Martin were positive. I would highly recommend him to other individuals who had similar issues to mine.


WFBMC is very lucky to have Dr. Martin!


Dr.Martin saw me shortly after I was referred by Dr.Giekengak. He really listened well and asked pertinent questions. I had an MRI on Thursday 11/17/16. He called me on Friday 11/18/16 to discuss the results and let me know next steps. I was astounded at his follow-through and sensitivity and must say that I did not expect this kind of treatment from someone who is in such demand for his skills and training. He deserves recognition for his people skills.


very good with no complaints


Very pleased with Dr. Martin. He's very professional, but yet personable and kind.


The Dr. was going to recommed eye drops, but never did.


Very pleased with the attention I received.


*Dr. Martin is a trusted health care professional.


I have been seeing this provider for a very scary health issue. He identified the probable cause to my issues & explained this to me. He also ordered testing & in time seeing a different type of specialist to help rule out other causes. The probable dx he felt was my cause ended up being the best plausible answer. I am greatful to have had the investigation to make sure nothing else was the root of my issues. The way I rated this provider is the way I would have rated each & every visit for him & the supporting staff. I have had a very positive experience.


I would definitely recommend Dr. Martin to anyone who needed a specialist in eye care.


All good.
