There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Dr Martin could never be replaced. Mary Ann his nurse has been incredible to deal with all these years. I am glad someone finally asked.

I have been a patient of Dr. Martin's for over 30 years. He has ALWAYS gone the extra mile in being an attentive and extremely professional physician. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
Oct 5, 2015
I would recommend Dr. Martin but caution the person that he works limited hours due to his administrative duties at the practice and with Geisinger.
Oct 5, 2015
Since Dr. Martin is more involved in administration now than seeing patients I would be less likely to recommend others seeing him.

Dr. Martin is an excellent person to deal with, always willing to take the extra time to answer your questions. This is probably why he was an hour behind for my visit, dealing with patients before my appointment.

I have confidence in my doctor. Wish he was more available but know he's busy with other things.
May 14, 2015
Dr. Martin has been my entire family's doctor for a long time, and his concern for each of us individually and collectively is how family practice should function. He cares not just for our physical health but for us emotionally during times of significant health issues. He is easy to talk to and readily accessible in times of strife. I recommend him unconditionally!
