Dr. Kim Martin's Ratings
Desperately seeking another doctor. Misdiagnosed a tumour-had me on a wait list one year for imaging. Dismissing - does not follow up serious concerns. Doesn't listen - asks for repetition of information for ongoing consults (only days apart) with current problem. Condescending, rude. Speaks to me in ways I would never even talk to a child. Quick to prescribe band aid meds and does not explain anything. Her typical response is "not unusual at your age." Shocker because I am active and healthy for my age (50). Wish there was another MD out there accepting patients that rate positively. :(
Rude, condescending, and severely lacking in knowledge. This woman has no business helping others when she cannot even help herself, as she clearly has an eating disorder. I would rather take my chances with Dr. Google than return to see Dr. Martin again.
Dr. Martin has been my family doctor about 15 years now. I find her to be professional and thorough. If you are looking for a doctor who will give you support on lifestyle choices that have or that could potentially negatively impact your life, she is the not doctor for you. Her approach is more proactive and preventative. I'm surprised at the number of superficial comments posted about her weight. Yes, she is very thin. Get over it.
Dr Martin has been extremely helpful over the 2 years I have seen her, and she is amazingly observant. She doesn't like small talk much, which may make her seem impatient, but she makes those 10 min visits very efficient.
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!!
