Ratings for Dr. Scott M. Martin
anuary 13, 2016 while flying to & from Dallas to bring home a new puppy, I did something bad to my back. Pain began in a big toe on left foot. By March the pain had me going to my General Practitioner who did all the blood tests to rule out diabetes or anything else. Then I was referred to a Neurologist, the one who claims to be #1 in Vegas. Dr. G's 2 minute exam consisted mainly of telling me how he enjoyed picking up his new Mercedes in Stuttgart. He NEVER touched me. Next stop was an MRI at Steinberg which hinted at the REAL problem. Up to this point and after 5 months of suffering and surviving on pain meds, NOBODY had cared enough to examine me thoroughly enough to isolate the problem as stenosis of my spine at L4. Everything changed when I met Dr. Scott Martin at Las Vegas Pain Institute in Henderson on 7/22/2016. Dr. Martin spent over 25 minutes listening to me and then testing me so we both could isolate the real cause of the pain. Pain that resulted in sleepless nights and non-stop pains in my legs and toe for over 6 months. Immediately after his examination, he lead me to their surgical suite, performed a 100% pain-free injection and I walked out on my own less than an hour later. Last night I enjoyed THE BEST sleep I've had in 6 months. I know that one injection block may not last forever but for the past 24 hours I have not taken ANY pain meds and I can walk, sit, squat and bend like a 100% healthy adult!!! In my opinion, if you are suffering from pain that may be related to your spine and you see ANYONE other than Dr. Scott M. Martin, YOU are a complete idiot! Not sure was his middle name is but I think the "M" should stand for Magnificent, Magician or MiracleWorker! P.S. The ladies who work with Dr. Martin in the surgery suite also deserve recognition for making me totally comfortable before, during and after the spinal injection. This combined team is EVERYTHING you could ever want in start to finish relief of your pain.
I would have to say this was one of my worst doctor experenice I was refer to him and I only saw him once and now seeing a different doctor who I think is times time better. I felt like he made a quick jugdement call on me if it was right or wrong but I just felt like he didn't care and didn't want to deal with me not a big fan of him so shock that he is getting great rating.... I feel that he needs to come down to earth a bit and get a reality check
My father was a medical doctor and two of my brothers are medical doctors. I believe I know an excellent doctor when I experience one. Dr. Martin is absolutely excellent in all respects. His professional behavior is exceptional and he knowldege of his medicine and particularly his specialty are superior. He's a terrific man and a first class doctor. Dr. Martin was careful to be sure my back problems and need for his care was real and legitimate. I greatly respect that approach. Once I became a patient of Dr. Martin, it has been a real pleasure to schedule an appointment and to be treated by him. His demeanor is just so excellent and I learn much from each appointment, about my back pain and what alternatives I have to help me. Dr. Martin always seems to carefully listen and then offer advice and recommendations that are crystal clear and always in my best interests. I think this is one of the finest doctors in the area.
