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 with prevention. I have many, many stories of what his personal attention and concern have meant to me over the years. One only is after 6 or 7 years of being treated by 2 different allergist, I went to Dr. Martin and said I was done with their shots and huge number of meds. I said I wanted to try a macrobiotic diet. I thought he'd say (as most people did) what's that? But he knew the diet and said it was great, but hard to stick to. When I got down to 87 lbs on this diet, he was the only person who said don't worry, you'll level off and I did. But, he literally saved my husband's life by early detection of esophageal cancer. After chemo, radiation and 10 hours of surgery 4 years ago, he is still cancer free. These are only a couple of the many stories I could tell. He is an amazing, attentive and kind doctor. I was so concerned that his patient load would be full before I could sign up so, no doubt, I was one of the first to sign up!
