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 had an abdominal hernia for months. I was scheduled for surgery with a surgeon in Greenville SC and the risk pre-surgery was that my hernia could incarcerate. That is where the blood flow to the abdominal tissue or intestine becomes trapped in the sac of the hernia. It happened and within a couple of minutes I went from no pain to" on your knees " pain. My wife said lets call Dr.… See more

from Rosmin in SC March 12, 2020 for J. Frank Martin Jr., MD

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.

from Sheila in SC March 11, 2020 for J. Frank Martin Jr., MD

I moved to Columbia, South Carolina in 1972 when I was twenty-six years old. I needed to find a doctor. Someone at work recommended Dr. J. Frank Martin, Sr. During my first appointment and for many years thereafter, Dr. Martin's wife Kay was his assistant. She and I immediately hit it off; that first visit cemented my relationship with both the doctor, his wife, and his dog Rex who sat… See more

from Jack in SC March 11, 2020 for J. Frank Martin Jr., MD

I met Dr. Frank Martin Jr. with no intention of moving to him being my primary care physician. He handled my fathers rare and unfortunate disease with compassion and dignity. 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.

My switch to… See more
