I had Dr Martin straighten out 4 hammer toes due to rheumatoid arthritis in November 2015 I have a very satisfactory result and can wear shoes again ,without pain , and they look so much better . He may be to the point and very direct , but knows what he is talking about . His secretary Patricia is all business and can be abrupt at times, but she knows exactly what she is doing and what she needs . My experience was a 10 +

For starters, the parking at this place makes no sense. Only one doctor has the 'rights' to the parking lot. He is a orthodontist, so most of his patients would be no Older than 18. So the fact that a doctor that has patients that need joint replacements and are mostly over the age of 40 have to park on a side street and walk a block, makes NO sense! Already having that sour taste in our mouths we walk into the office and his receptionist was beyond rude ! We were not told that we had to bring the X-Rays by anyone (his office, the office that reffered us or the place we had the x-Rays done). His receptionist treated us like we were stupid for not having the x-rays. He told us to come back later that day with the x-rays to get them checked but when we got up to the receptionist desk (after rudely been told to 'sit down and wait') She gave us another appointment time for a different day, so a day off work wasted. The doctor himself was quite short and wouldn't let us finish answers to the questions he was asking. I get having a doctor with a bad bedside manner as long as he's good at what he does but his receptionist should make up for his coldness, which she did not! All together a terrible experience!!

if you see Dr.Martin in Emergency, go to another hospital. I took my husband in on April 19th 2016, he was in excruciating pain from injuring his knee. We waited two hours for him in the exam room, could see him across the way chatting with the resident doctor and the nurses. for long stretches at a time. The resident young lady Doctor saw my husband first and was pleasant. An X-ray was ordered for my husbands knee, after the X-ray Dr.Martin finally graced us with his presence! He told us there were no breaks in the knee, and to go home and put ice on it, follow up with his doctor in a couple of weeks. I stressed to Dr.Martin that my husband has a high tolerance for pain and he cannot even walk, and that he must be in a huge amount of pain. My husband asked how long to get a MRI and he said it would be 8-10 weeks at least and would not do any good anyways. We suspected he had a torn ligament, and this does not show up on X-RAYS. This doctor did not even prescribe a painkiller. We had to go up and ask later. This doctors opinion did not sit well with me, and we got him in to his family doctor the next day, an ultrasound was ordered, he has a referral for the top orthopaedic surgeon in Toronto. The ultrasound showed that he had a huge bakers cyst behind his knee that had ruptured and his Lateral Ligament on the outside of the knee is shredded, severed! All Dr. Martin had to do was order an ultrasound! I am so happy we did not listen to him. Booking an MRI in Buffalo and will get in in two days! The bakers cyst can be dangerous due to the blood clotting. I have no respect for this doctor who was so careless with my husband!

His receptionist needs to take a course in hospitality, a smile wouldn't hurt. Upon entering his office her space is surround by a high wall, so unless you can hear her you are not aware anyone is there to greet you. She has been with him since I first meet Dr. Marting 4yrs ago and nothing has changed regarding her attitude toward his patience.

Had to have my knee redone to the sloppy procedure by another surgeon. Dr. Martin had to do a lot of repair - did an awesome job.

I have a fractured hip, loose bodies and a labrum tear. Stated I need a replacement (which I was expecting) but ! It's been a year since he has told Me that. Sent me for an arthrogram and have to wait a month for results. Was in hospital due to the amount of pain and being advised to contact him right away. When calling the office his secretary is by far one of the most rudest people I have ever met ! She treats you like you are not worthy of her time or dr Martins. Absolutely DISGUSTED !!!!!!
