  • Dr. Martin was very thorough. He did a great job explaining my MRI results and making a plan for additional tests and treatment.

  • Dr. Martin has been my Neurologist since he first diagnosed me in 1994. He's always had The Best Bedside Manner Ever! And that's something I have never said .,,..(Ever) about anyone while being an MS Patient,

  • Dr. Martin is a phenomenal neurologist. He is always very attentive to my well being. The best Dr. that I've ever had.

  • Spoke clearly and honestly and made sure we understood.

  • Dr. Martin was very compassionate, understanding the fact that, you know, I just - with everything going on, it's just alarming and he understood that so I mean, I appreciate the call, the telehealth, because you know, there's a lot of fear going on with me and I thank him.

  • Prefer face to face but understand why its nearly impossible at this time. Front office staff behave more professionally when a coworker is on the phone with a patient.

  • Dr. Martin listened to my concerns and was very thorough and explained things to me so that I understood. I was very pleased that he took his time and did not rush through my first time visit with him.

  • All my questions were answered and Dr. Martin put my mind at ease with everything. He's an awesome doctor. I wouldn't want to see any other. He's great.

  • Doctor Martin is an absolutely wonderful doctor!! The best!!

  • The use of medical teleconsultation is excellent.

  • Dr. Martin really listens to me. He always seems to be aware of what we've discussed previously and I really appreciate his knowledge of new therapies on the horizon for Multiple Sclerosis. Until Dr. Martin joined Southcoast, there were NO doctors that were knowledgable about Multiple Sclerosis. Each time I came for an appointment with a neurologist, prior to the arrival of Dr. Martin, they asked why I was seeing them, because they said they were not qualified to see someone with Multiple Sclerosis. Dr. Martin is excellent!!!!! Please do whatever you can to keep him, until he retires, and then please be sure to have him actively involved in his replacement.

  • Dr. Martin and his staff are absolutely wonderful, however, there so very few urologist in the area of South Coast Hospital that that it is very very very hard to get an appointment when one would like it and often the waiting time is 6 months or more. That's something I would like to see change so that one can see a neurologist, Dr. Martin, or any of his colleagues obviously, in a more timely fashion. Thank you.

  • This was my first appointment with Dr. Martin, and I can say without a doubt that he is the most kind, knowledgeable, and poised medical professional I’ve gotten to work with. He has wonderful “bedside” manner, attending to concerns during my appointment with care, while also providing me with information.

In times where you have an increase call volume you need to make adjustment and have more people and telephone lines available.

He knows me and treats me as an individual and not just as a patient in the book. Also [Name] [Name] [Name] who works with him has been extremely helpful and getting my paperwork to my job on time.

Southcoast Health physician profiles now feature star ratings.  Below, you’ll find frequently asked questions about our process for calculating the ratings.

Why does Southcoast publish survey ratings online?
Southcoast is dedicated to providing patients and consumers with helpful information about the quality of our patients’ experiences. Star ratings published on our physician biography pages are based on actual responses from patients of that particular physician to patient satisfaction surveys that are distributed and processed by a national patient satisfaction survey vendor.

Who receives the survey?
Our vendor sends surveys via SMS or email to all patients seen in our outpatient physician practices who have a valid smart phone number or email address on file with Southcoast Health. Surveys are sent to patients within a few days of their appointment.

How is the Patient Satisfaction Star Rating Calculated?
Star ratings are calculated using an average of all survey responses to each of three questions: Courtesy and Respect of Staff, Provider Overall Rating, and  Willingness to Recommend Provider’s Office.  The star rating displayed on our physicians’ main biography page represents the average of the three measures for that particular physician.
