Hello, Dr. Martin here and welcome to my blog!
I wanted to take a minute and introduce myself and talk about one of the subjects I am most passionate about, patient care empowerment.
You might ask, what do you mean by patient care empowerment? Well, I believe that as a Doctor it is my responsibility to help you take charge of your own health. For as long as I can remember, the doctor-patient relationship has been a little bit unequal, in my opinion. The doctor is most often pictured as an authoritative figure and the patient as somehow less than. I want to completely defy this notion.
The way I see it, it is my job to help you figure out what your best self could be... based on your expectations. We will do this by setting realistic goals together, and striving for those goals as a team. This means that I am in the trenches with you. Whether you are dealing with a metabolic issue or a neurological disorder, or anything in between. If you have a difficult case and feel alone, I will listen to you and we will develop a plan...together. My goal is to help you optimize your health, so that you can get the most out of your life! However, you are the one that has to do most of the work, and I acknowledge this. I applaud you for taking the first step to a healthier, happier you. I look forward to being part of your health journey!
Your health, your way!
