I went in for a consultation and was referred for a CT scan. It took me over a week to receive the results and I had to call to obtain them. The imaging center provided me with proof that they sentthe results within 24 hours but since dr MARTIN was on vacation his staff decided to blame their referral source for the delay. What if my results were to show something serious? Frankly I was shocked at the lackadaisical nature by which the office staff conduct their business. A colleague of Dr. Martin left me a frantic voicemail at almost 10 PM. When Dr. Martin called me back he was quite ambivalent and started to take offense when I told him that I was considering a Different doctor for my procedure. I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt but alas it took his staff over 24 hours to call me back and tell me that he was not interested in my case.

I had an issue since the begging wit my appointments and they did not book them and then not only that sent from office to office bcuz they had told me the wrong office to go to. Then I get tothe Sherman oaks office and I didn't have to wait that long to get into a room when I was in a room is when I waited a long time and it turns out that they had passed another patient before me and made me wait even longer till I went outside to tell them and they acted like I was stupid.

Waited for Doctor for over 1 hour. Receptionists told everyone he was coming in from surgery. Sounds like a good reason. Parking is cash only, so be prepared to pay close to $10 for the time you wait for the doctor, unless you can find street parking.
