Had a very sudden and concerning eye issue that needed attention and UPMC staff worked with me to get an appointment with Dr. Martel very quickly. Dr. Martel was very good at explaining my condition and how to treat it, and eased a lot of my concerns. My condition will take some follow up care, and I feel very lucky to have Dr. Martel and his staff guiding me through this.

It's a pleasure to see Dr Martel. He is attentive to my care and provides me with good information and feed back. I feel that I have a part in deciding what is right for me and have a voice in decisions.

Dr. Martel and his staff are always courteous and explain every step of care administered. They work efficiently. At no time do I ever feel minimalized, or that they are rushing to get to the next patient or lunch.

This is a wonderful practice. I've always been treated kindly and with concern. Dr Martel is just great and is very compassionate. He knows what he's doing!!

I have used 3 different doctors in this group and trust the eye care they have provided. I would not consider going to a different group for this treatment for my eyes.

I am a non-diabetic, 69 yr old male patient, with a propensity for retinal detachment. I've now been in Dr. Martel's direct care for 5.2 years, and he has navigated and treated me very successfully through this journey. His insightful, preventive treatment planning has saved my first eye; he has brought the same eye condition back to near stability; and he now is taking preventive, prophylactic, steps for the other eye. This physician is a 'national healthcare asset'. I am terribly grateful to UPMC for retaining him.
