This was my first visit with Dr. Marten. Her office was able to get me in within two days when my regular Dr. couldn't see me for three weeks:( My visit was great, prompt, courteous and the office has first rate equipment and facilities. Dr. Marten is now my new regular Dr.!

My husband and I both received high quality care by Lisa Marten and staff. My husband received prk and I received lasik a year after. Lisa plus staff calmed my nerves and gained my trust since I was afraid of the process and that something may go wrong. They even gave me a stress ball during the procedure and a blanket. Thus, they were very attentive during the process.
Very detailed exam. Staff was very professional and kind.
I had a great experience. The doctor was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain my condition in a way I would understand.
While the wait to be seen was right at an hour, the staff were courteous and offered hot coffee and snacks. I was there a total of two and half hours. One hour waiting from 10:30 to 11:30 and then various eye exams including a dilation of my eyes which required a bit of a wait time, but the everyone was so attentive and pleasant that the time when by fast.
