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 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.

I always brag about Dr. Martin and recommend him when asked. I have trusted this man with my life and the lives of my family for more than 35 years, before he was with Geisinger. How lucky Geisinger is to have a doctor the caliber of Dr. Martin on it's staff.

Since Dr. Martin is more involved in administration now than seeing patients I would be less likely to recommend others seeing him.
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.
