Richard B. Martin, MD

Meet Richard B. Martin, MD


My goal as your personal physician is to partner with you to create a customized plan   that can help you work on current health problems and strive to prevent new ones I have personally experienced “the other side” of the doctor-patient relationship. At 41 years old, I was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer and underwent multiple surgeries, radiation therapy and several cycles of chemotherapy. After conquering cancer with the help of my trusted physicians and nurses, I committed myself to providing my own patients with the individualized care and attention I think they deserve.

In my practice, you will be treated in a warm and welcoming atmosphere as if you are a member of my family.  You can benefit from my education, experience, compassion and understanding.

With over 30 years of practicing in Nashville, Tennessee, I have relationships with many specialists. I may be your internal medicine doctor, but I also have interests in cardiovascular health, diabetes, hypertension and preventive medicine. And my MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice offers comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests that go far beyond those found in traditional practices. I also offer conveniences, such as same- or next-day appointments. I firmly believe in providing timely care. 
Other benefits include the opportunity to reach me, your personal physician, after hours for more urgent needs and care for dependents aged 15 to 26. We also offer 30-minute routine or sick visits.

I serve the middle Tennessee area, including Davidson and surrounding counties. I am affiliated with Ascension Saint Thomas West Hospital and Centennial Medical Center.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most MDVIP-affiliated primary care practices accept insurance (your physician can tell you whether they accept your specific insurance plan). Your annual fee pays for preventive care medical services that insurance usually doesn’t cover (e.g., advanced diagnostic testing and screenings). Your MDVIP-affiliated physician will continue to bill your insurance and charge copays, co-insurances and deductibles as he or she currently does for other medical services like sick visits.

MDVIP makes wellness and prevention easier by providing your physician with innovative tools and technology. MDVIP supports your physician’s practice and seeks to eliminate barriers to a positive healthcare experience. Your doctor will determine whether and how to incorporate these tools at his/her discretion.
