      Dr. Martin did an outstanding job caring for our daughter after her recent surgery at Children's. She's a take the reins type of person when no-one else knows what direction to go. Dr. Martins expertise along with personally care & compassion surpass expectations. We were not only impressed with her care, but her willingness to go the extra mile. Truly thankful Dr. Martin that you were on our daughter's team. You have a place to stay in AK anytime! Kellyn

      Dr Marten took such excellent care of my son Graham. Before during and after the surgery. She has called us everyday since the procedure to make sure he is doing ok. She is so personable and caring. She forged a bond with Graham and with us. Children's is lucky to have her! Thanks so much!!
