Dr. Martell was excellent communicator--listening and responding to my questions, very professional as well as personable and offered hope for dealing with upcoming retinal detachment surgery. Dr. Martell was highly recommended to me through friends of friends--professionals at Mercy Hospital.

Annual followup visit from a retinal tare. Top shelf care from everyone at this office from the doctors on down to the rest of the staff. From the first experience from the emergency room visit to all of the followup care.

Dr. Martell is excellent. I was able to get an issue with my left eye resolved the same day of a checkup visit. We live 3 hours away, and this is the second time I have been able to get lazer treatment done for other issues with my eyes at a checkup visit. I greatly appreciate this!
