I had severe bronchitis and on a Saturday night breathing became very difficult. I phoned Dr. Martin and he answered immediately even though he was at a party out of town. I described the problem, and he told me to go to the ED of a nearby hospital. I was concerned that on a Saturday night the ED would be packed. When I arrived breathing was becoming very laborous, and I saw that my assumption… See more

I don't know where to start about what type of Doctor/Man Dr. Martin is. I have known him for about 12 years and had not talked to him or seen him
In 10 years when I sent him a text. It was literally about 2 minutes and his familiar compassionate voice was on the phone. He was calling me and talking with me like we had seen each other everyday. He had not changed a bit. He talked to… See more

there is no greater love for a doctor than to choose to drive 2 hrs one way to see, to interact, to be cared for and talked to ......eye to eye, like a best friend. i have known dr. martin many years, and he has never changed....when he is still outside and the door to my room is closed, just his voice on the other side gives me comfort..then when he walks in, with his smile, if he is pleased… See more

I was introduced to Frank Martin through the woman that is now my wife. She was a patient of Franks father. From day one, I have had the good fortune to be on the receiving end of great medical care, added to the trust and confidence in any diagnosis I have received. So far, I have been through two cancers and a heart problem. Frank has been spot on with every diagnosis. He keeps me… See more

I have gone to Frank Martin, Jr. as long as he has been in practice. Actually, I was a patient of his fathers until he retired. As time went by and the practice grew with the times, I would have to wait longer and longer in the waiting room and had a harder time getting in if I were sick. Since Dr. Martin has joined in MDVIP, it is a pleasure to go to an appointment. I never have to wait… See more

from Theresa in SC February 23, 2014 for J. Frank Martin Jr., MD

Dr. Martin has been my physician for 22 or so years. Therefore, when he joined MDVIP, it took no thought on my part as to weather I would join him. He is the best doctor I've ever been to -- he is not only a great diagnostician, but he really listens to his patients (and reads the innumerable articles I've sent him over the years). He has always been very proactive and concerned… See more
