Dr. Kim Martin's Ratings
Saw her at a walk in clinic for a female issue. I told her that I was taking meds for high blood pressure. She prescribed me two sets of meds which are not to be taken with blood pressure medications. I just got out of the hospital for a pulmonary embolism courtesy of the meds she prescribed. I could have died. Not Happy at all...
I have seen Dr Martin 3 times and am desperately looking for a new doctor. I'm not sure what her health issue regarding weight is, but she seems to think that every health issue has to do with weight. I went in for a Pap smear twice because she could not seem to get a reasonable sample. I was feeling unwell and short of breath with severe body pain and she again said it was weight related and heartburn. Even though I told her I don't get heartburn So she gave me Gaviscon and sent me on my way. She is a terrible doctor.
I went today to see Dr Martin for the first time with my toddler daughter. She did not make eye contact with me once and didn't even acknowledge my daughter. I have never received such bad bedside manner by a doctor who by the name of the profession should be the first one to care for others and work to help them.
I really hope that others do not waste their time if they are looking for a new doctor as Dr Martin is just that - a waste of time!!
I don't normally write reviews but I was treated so terribly I felt compelled to. I went in to see Dr. Martin for insessint back pain and head pain, which is unusual for me, an active, otherwise healthy 26 year old. She came in, wouldn't look me in the eye, almost laughed when I told her of the pain and then proceeded to poke my back three times with her index finger, declared it to be the result of a cold ( which I dont and didnt have?) and then looked at me impatiently to put my sweater on and leave the room. I was about to say something to her but when I turned around she had disappeared. I would recommend waiting to see an even moderately higher rated GP or to go to a walk in clinic. Truly an awful experience.
Wow I guess I am not the only one who was treated like total carp by this dr. She interupted me twice, got impatient when I explained my problem, and then insisted she needed to see text results from a previous dr that had already comeback normal. When I let her know I was still have the problem she ignored me. She was completely rude. Maybe she should read these comments, might force her to take a good look at herself. She is a terrible dr, and needs to eat since she is likely losing her mind from starving herself. Scary!
Dr Kim Martin is amazing and cares for her patients. I recently took my Mother to see her and she got her on to a Surgeon immediately. It was of great importance. I value Dr. Martin professionalism as GP and commend her on her honour and dedication. Thank-you Dr. Martin.
We recently moved to North Vancouver and were warned not to go to Dr. Martin for the reasons below. However, for convenience and wanting to form my own opinion of her I took my family there. Both my husband and I agree that she is the WORST doctor we have ever had. She just doesn't make you feel that she cares about your wellbeing! She is rude, cold and does not make you feel comfortable to ask questions about her opinion. Most appointments I feel like she is only focused on writing me a prescription ($$$$$). She has poor listening skills and I always feel rushed and steered in the direction she wants. I typically leave her appointments feeling frustrated, angry and wanting to change doctors immediately (if I could only find a good one taking patients).
I was looking for a new doctor and came across dr. Martin. When I went to see her all she could talk about was my weight, which is fine! She sent me for blood work which came back good, kept telling me I needed professional help to lose weight and asked me if I new what a vegetable was. She didn't listen to my symptoms and I left crying from how horrible she is. I am so thankful I found a doctor who cares about me now! She is aweful.
