The 90 minute wait to see the provider was annoying.

Dr. Martel was fantastic. I was beyond happy with my care and the knowledge that Dr. Martel demonstrated during my emergency appointment. I greatly appreciated him taking the time to see me. While I am following up with my regular provider, I would most definitely come back to see Dr. Martel for care again. The office staff was also incredibly kind and knowledgable. My entire experience with this office was a breath of fresh air.
