About this Provider

Training to become a doctor of osteopathy and general surgeon, Dr. Aaron Martin sought out skilled and knowledgeable surgeons as mentors.  “I wanted to be able to offer a wide variety of surgeries from biopsies to hernias to cancer care. It is important to me to be able to help my patients whatever their health issues.” 

Dr. Martin sees each patient as unique and important. “I try to listen to what my patient is telling me and get to as much history behind the presenting illness. Then we work through it logically and find out the root of the problem. If I can treat it medically I will. If it requires surgery, I am ready there as well.”

While his original college major was in music, science and medicine became Dr. Martin’s top priority fairly quickly. Volunteering at summer camps for youth with diabetes peaked his interest in the impact of chronic disease.

Patients with reflux concerns have become a focus for Dr. Martin, who has special training in anti-reflux treatments as well as endoscopy and bronchoscopy. Thyroid biopsies and surgeries remain a special interest.

Dr. Martin and his wife, a CCU nurse at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center, have a new baby to add to their busy lives. Regular exercise, team sports, hiking, camping, and fishing fill out Dr. Martin’s free time.

Everything went as well as possible dealing with the Coronavirus...I personally have been waiting several months to see Dr. Martin and have the needed surgery taken care of. Although it was a long and painful wait, it was out of Dr. Martin's hands as far as moving forward when I needed help. I'm very satisfied and confident Dr. Martin can get me taken care of and I have the utmost confidence he knows what he's doing just from one visit with him.

Trisha! Dr. Martin's go-to person. She has worked with me and helped me through new situations and fears. Through these times with the virus Trish makes sure I don't feel like I've fallen through the cracks or been forgotten.

The entire staff was courteous, compassionate & caring, attentive, gentle, went along with my crazy "sense of humor", understanding, patient and all the great adjectives I can think of.

May 18, 2019
Dr. Aaron Martin is excellent. He listens to my concerns and is very down to earth with his explanations.
May 09, 2019
Dr. Martin tolerated my sense of humor, was very respectful as well as good natured and very human. He explained what my procedure would be, asked about any reservations to the process, & would share information with my Primary Care Physician. His nurse (Heide) called and explained that considering the Casadex (bicaludamide) that I was taking, that surgery would not eliminate the reason I was considering the surgery. Consequently, further treatment/consultation would not be necessary unless I so desired. I thanked her and asked her to thank Dr. Martin.
