Excellent practice. Physician and resident both were able to discuss pathology and prognosis with me as I have a medical background. They both seemed interested in partnering with me for wellness. Respect for my experiences and concerns much appreciated. They listened to help not to respond.

This was my first visit with Dr Martel. I was referred to him by my regular Ophthalmologist, Dr M.R. Patel. I was given an appointment the day after Dr Patel's referral. The total experience was excellent and very professional. I will continue to see Dr Martel until my problem is resolved..
