My main and probably only complaint is that I sat in the waiting room for hours. I don't know if you over booked your appointments or what happened. All I know is that I experienced both times I had appointments. While I was there I heard many other patients saying the same thing. You need to fix this situation or I think you will lose a lot of patients. I don't mind waiting some time but 3-4 hours is crazy.

very attuned to the patient needs and very informative.

was a good visit

I have received great care at both Mercy and St. Margaret's eye clinic. Dr. Martel is wonderful and would recommended him to everyone. The only bad thing is the wait time, but when there is only a couple of eye specialists that does what he does, I guess you have to wait. I'm very satisfied.

Dr. Martel and his staff are great in the care they provide. I just had surgery last week and I am very happy with my post-operative results. I feel this is due to my selection of Dr. Martel and Dr. Waxman as my surgeons.
