From the onset of the greeting at the desk, there was ease and caring. issues associated with sight creates considerable anxiety in a patient , such as me. I liked the way the door was left open in between the initial exam and drops until Dr Martyn's turn occurred I have not seen her in several years. She is the preferred by all in our family including physicians. She was as I have always known her , calm, focused, very smart, applies her knowledge and empathy to exact diagnosis and plan. I was far calmer when I left than when I entered in the years I have known her regarding the severity of my Mother's sever vision decline and you daughtervin youth and me in emergency, she has been consistent in high quality of care.

Dr. Martyn-Gans is a excellent doctor. she explained everything to me in detail I would highly recommend her

Reviewed on Feb 26, 2019

provider spent very little time with me. after telling the assistant I was a victim of medical neglect as a child and trying to tell this to the doctor, she insisted my parents must have taken pretty good care of me because my problem isn't worse. she basically told me there is no hope for my condition (a second opinion proved her wrong). I was literally not allowed to ask questions as I was shuffled out the door. she did not ask me anything about my condition but made broad sweeping statements and disregarded me. she did not plan any in depth testing. even though there is therapy available for my condition, she did not recommend it. the medical secretary I spoke with later on the phone said I should have seen someone that specializes in this disorder and yet the doctor herself didn't recommend I see a specialist (she was an ophthalmologist and the secretary said I should see an ophthalmologist that deals with this disorder more often - I guess seeing an eye specialist isn't enough - I have to see a special specialist).

Reviewed on Feb 12, 2019

Dr Martyn seems rushed and put out. She does not seem open to questions or anything above and beyond her basic examination.

Doctor appeared rushed. She showed me the retina hole(tear), but did not go into explaining what was happening and what I could expect in treatment. Was referred to a retina specialist within 2 weeks. Said it needed to be handled immediately. I only know it is an out patient procedure, but I do not know what that procedure is. I do not know what to expect when I see the retina specialist.

Reviewed on Nov 1, 2018

The Doctor and nurse didn't do a very good job explaining why they were doing what they were doing. The nurse/assistant was very kind and friendly and thorough, I just wasn't always sure why they were doing what they were doing. The doctor had a poor disposition and unkind manner. She didn't take the time or care to explain what she was doing or what things meant. I would not recommend her nor will I go back to see her.

She was a bit argumentative regarding that my last prescription had come from that office. Apparently my eyes have improved since my last visit and she stated there was no way the doctor could have prescribed something so far off from what my vision currently is. She went back and looked at the records and corrected herself, but I truly wasn't expecting having to explain myself to her when the only ophthalmologic visits I've had since 2006 have been at this office.
