Dr. Kim Martin's Ratings
I moved here from the United States. I am on medication that is taken daily. Dr Martin found equivalent medications here in Canada and has me feeling great. Her staff is very patient and helpful. Dr Martin is always on time. Friendly, and she really cares about my health. I have since brought my family to see her and they all like her.

I have been putting off a needed medical test until I can find a new doctor. Martin is the most unprofessional and inconsiderate doctor I've ever had the displeasure of seeing. She couldn't be bothered to acquaint herself with my chart and so asked me the same questions over and over, much of which had no bearing on the reason for my visit. She only cared about my weight, which is not an unhealthy one, so it got very tired, very fast. I was very tempted to comment on her weight, which is very obviously not a healthy one, but I restrained myself. The last straw was her prescription of a drug I am allergic to. Thank god for pharmacists! I can't believe this woman is still in practice. How I wish I knew about ratemds.com before I called her office. It is apparent that I am not alone in my issues with her.

Dr Martin is in a convenient location for me and is rarely late for appointments. However, she prescribes antibiotics for just about everything you come into her office for and never looks past the symptom to what might be going on otherwise. Her bedside manner is at times "okay" but most of the time I'm scared to ask her to explain why she is prescribing antibiotics or why my body might be doing whatever it's doing. I don't think her heart is in helping people anymore but more in the money.

Dr. Martin has been my family doctor for a few years. We have now moved our doctor as she is so rude and unhelpful. She is rude and dismissive to children - scarily so in fact. My children would cry at the thought of going to see her. She once made my little boy sit on the floor in the corner of the room while she examined me, which was humiliating and odd for him. She interrupts when you try to tell her things, has no bedside manner at all and just wants to get you out of there as quickly as possible. Her receptionist is also rude. I called to get a repeat prescription as I had nearly run out of my medication and she said 'Well it's not my fault that you have run out of medication.' ?! Really unhelpful and lacking in empathy. There are better doctors out there - I have now found one. I registered with doctor martin as she was the only female doctor on the northshore who was taking on new patients. I would rather go to a male doctor - in fact any other doctor than see her ever again.

Today was my first meeting with Dr. Martin. I found her staff friendly and efficient and they got me into a room right away. I waited maybe 2 minutes for Dr. Martin which was quite nice compared to other Doctors I have gone to. Dr. Martin was friendly, chatty (she took note of things I had mentioned and made conversation about it in a friendly way) and seemed very kind and helpful. I needed some blood work done which she got me to do right after the appointment which worked out very well for me. I was happy with my visit and have no hesitations with visiting her again in the future.

I have been seeing Dr Martin for over 10 Years and have never had a problem with her she is friendly and very knowledgable. I was sickened to read how many shallow people there are out there that judge people by there appearances.She is always on time which can be a huge issue for some Doctors like the ones she shares a practice with, there average wait time is one hour. She respects patients time. Her Secretary is fantastic and always accommodating.

Unbelievable that this sad individual was awarded the degree, and all of its inherent privileges and responsibilities, of "Medical Doctor". She is a seriously deficient individual, in all respects. I don't know who the Dean of Medicine or related med school admitting panel was at UBC in 1981/82 that would have granted admittance of this woman to med school (grad '86 I believe), and further, am appalled that the College has allowed this woman to perpetuate in the field of medicine for all these years. I would hope that this gross oversight is far and few between, particularly over the past 30 years. We can never predict how a person will fullfill a particular role (granted) and my guess is she was one of the few who slipped through the proverbial "cracks". Kim should step back from practice, visit her particular psychiatric condition(s)and related diagnosis[es](in consult with a more apt trained professional than herself) and re-evaluate her place within the medicine. Regards.

I feel with Dr. Martin that I am in good hands. She is quiet and gets down to business. She respects my time. Previous doctors I have had rated poorly in this regard.

A bone in my foot was broken and she refered me to a specialist who tried to scam me. The specialist told me to pay $20 IN CASH just for seeing him for 2 minutes and almost forced me to buy a cast for $200 and a pair of soccer socks for $20. When I tried to escape him by saying I had no money, he tried to make me call my parents and make them give my mom's credit card number over the phone. I said no and told him I'd contact him through my family doctor later. I never did, and dr.martin never called me either, and I've not called her or seen her ever since. I still have her as my family doctor because of lack of doctors in the north shore but jeez, she's horrendous.

This is the worst doctor out there. She told me today that obesity is a lifestyle choice and i have the mental capability to read and follow the Canadian Food Guide. Umm what? I have a Bariatric Surgeon who says its a multifactorial complex disease! She is very rude, and interrupts, and assumes things. She does not read the reports from specialists and actually got my facts wrong about sleep apnea saying it was mild, when i was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. Also stated my asthma was mild, when i was diagnosed by a RESPIRALOGIST to be MODerate! No wonder why you can go see her the same day because she has no patients..id rather wait 4 hours at a walk in clinic then go back to her. I am glad i read this site and i am not the only one who feels this way.
