I was overwhelmed with how knowledgeable and professional Teresa, Janet and Dr. Martel were in dealing with my issues. I'm super impressed with UPMC and what they do for the TriState area

My care provider and his support staff are among UPMC's finest. Dr. Martel is literally a scientist, a university professor, and an expert surgeon. And he is a walking think tank. I have been blessed to have him as my primary specialist.

June 03, 2016

I enjoyed, very much, the opportunity to meet Dr. Martel. If I have more concerns in his field of expertise I will not hesitate making an appointment to see him.

I was very pleased with the staff/doctors is maintaining good hand hygiene and preparation of equipment for testing. This was both a follow up to a previous eye event and follow up from my emergency room visit. I am very satisfied with receiving care from this physician. Thank you.
