Dr. Frank Martin, Jr, replaced his father in a family practice years ago. In all, I have seen Dr. Martin and Dr. Martin, Jr. for over 43 years. Dr. Martin is like family.

I started seeing him in October 2018 and was diagnosed with breast cancer within a month of being his patient. He was always very kind and attentive. He continues to be supportive as I have completed my one year of treatment. He always has a smile and listens to everything I have to say. I feel like he leaves no stone unturned when it comes to my care. I am grateful to be his patient.

He was with my father until he passed and approached him as a person; not just another patient ; with a holistic approach to him medically, personally and spiritually. His bedside manner is unmatched.
