Dr. Martin does a wonderful job explaining things to my child and myself. We are so grateful he takes the time to answer our questions and appreciate his continuous care. We always look forward to seeing him.

Dr. Martin and his nurse [...] were fantastic. I haven't seen a freak worked together like them in a long time. They also know how to manage the room to make sure baby is seen then [...] takes baby so Dr. Martin can talk to us as parents directly. This was super helpful and made us feel as though we could focus on what Dr. Martin was saying while [...] was holding our baby and keeping him happy.
