Dr. Martin’s Care Philosophy

“I understand that whether you are a professional athlete, weekend warrior or a minimally active sedentary individual, you have unique circumstances, goals and expectations when faced with injury or pain. These factors can only be thoroughly understood with careful attention and listening. I always respect your time with prompt but thorough evaluations, then discuss plainly all of your options in a way that is understandable. I believe that the best outcomes result from shared decision-making regarding your personalized, customized treatment plan to return to you to an active lifestyle.”
