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.

My priority before, during and after surgery is making sure my patients come through their treatment safely. I see each person as an individual and their treatment and safety is vital to me.

Dr. Martin was consulted and squeezed me in first thing Monday morning for a consult and surgery to remove my gallbladder first thing Tuesday morning. He recognized how bad my blood tests were and the pain I was in and prioritized my care. Dr. Martin was kind, respectful, understanding and competent. If I would highly recommend him and his staff/office to anyone. His office also scheduled a two follow up appointments to ensure that I was doing well after the surgery and made me feel cared for.

Dr. Martin took the time needed to hear my questions (and answer them - in an easily understood manner) and my concerns. He spent a considerable amount of time answering questions about a different issue from a year earlier, after thoroughly covering the current issue. He was personable and not condescending. I felt as though he cared about me, and valued me.
October 15, 2020
I have to commend Dr. Martin on his knowledge of my situation and what I mean by that is that he had said before we got started talking about my situation that he had looked over my record the night before so he was a little familiar with my problem. His diagrams were so helpful so I could understand what my surgery would entail, I'm grateful for the time he spent with me with no hurry to get me out of there! U have a valued dr on staff for sure!

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.
June 11, 2020
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.
