Annual followup visit from a retinal tare. Top shelf care from everyone at this office from the doctors on down to the rest of the staff. From the first experience from the emergency room visit to all of the followup care.

Dr. Martell is excellent. I was able to get an issue with my left eye resolved the same day of a checkup visit. We live 3 hours away, and this is the second time I have been able to get lazer treatment done for other issues with my eyes at a checkup visit. I greatly appreciate this!

Everyone that works at the Eye Center is wonderful - docotors, nurses, receptionists, everyone - very friendly and kind, cares about and answers any questions I have, treats everyone in the office with respect. The wait time is incredibly long, but that doesn't seem to be anyone's fault it's just how it is in ophthalmology offices. Dr. Martel is a great doctor and I feel very confident in the care I receive at the Eye Center.

I had surgery on my eye in July and this was an appointment related to the surgery. They looked over my eyes and I will have another appointment to be fitted for new glasses. It seems the surgery worked and my eye is getting better. It was a pleasant experience especially since my eye is improving.

Excellent

Too long of a wait to see the doctor. In April I had an appointment for annual follow-up visit. When I arrived I learned that the doctor was 2 1/2 hours behind so I re-scheduled. The soonest I could get in was my appointment in July. I arrived at 9:45 am for my 10:00 am appointment. I didn't get out until 11:30 and I waited most of that time to see the doctor.

The provider did not have the correct contact information for me and it seemed to be more difficult than it should be to simply correct it. However, overall everything else about the visit was terrific, and I would highly recommend Dr. Martell.
