Q & A

Q & A

Q: Why did you become a doctor/reproductive endocrinologist?


A reproductive endocrinologist gave my class a lecture in my third year of medical school about treating infertility. He talked extensively about IVF and pre genetic screening of embryos and the ability to help change people’s lives for the better. After shadowing him in his clinic and watching him make so many couples’ dreams come true, I was inspired to become a reproductive endocrinologist.

Q: Who inspires you?


I am inspired by those who strive to help others. I am always amazed by doctors and nurses who bond with their patients and have the ability to put them at ease. I strive to be able to do that with my patients and make a difficult process as tolerable as possible.

Q: What are your hobbies and why do you enjoy them?


I enjoy playing tennis and scuba diving. I have always liked tennis because it requires strength, concentration, drive, and belief in yourself in order to be successful. Scuba diving is my favorite hobby because of the adventure, wildlife, and the brilliant colors and scenery.

Q: What is something about you that would surprise most people?


Most people don’t know that I used to play professional wheelchair tennis on a world circuit before I went into medicine.

Q: What about SGF makes you the most proud?


I am so proud to be part of Shady Grove Fertility because of the outstanding care that is provided and by the amazing people who work here. It truly takes an entire team to make a practice succeed and to allow patients to have the best experience possible. It is clear that everyone at SGF knows what patients are going through and I am honored to be part of a great team.

Q: What's on your bucket list?


I would love to go scuba diving with my wife and son in Bali and on the Great Barrier Reef. Going on a safari in Africa is also on my bucket list.

Q: Describe a time when you were inspired by a patient.


I am inspired by my patients daily and their ability to make decisions under difficult situations.

Q: What is your approach to helping patients who are struggling?


It is a tremendous honor to be able to help couples struggling with infertility. I believe that it is critical to provide patients with an accurate, honest medical opinion in order for them to make informed decisions about their reproductive options and future. Patients should have the autonomy to make decisions based on accurate information.

Q: How would you describe your personality?


I am an honest, transparent person who thrives on relating with his patients. I believe it is the cornerstone of being a good physician. I am proud to be able to empathize with patients’ struggles and try to find humor where I can.



"Dr. Martin and his team have been so great to work with. The office is very clean and nice. Scheduling is very flexible given the nature of their work and every person in his office is extremely friendly and helpful. Blood test results are given same day. They are all huge advocates for every patient. They take time to listen to your concerns and fully explain every step of your treatment plan. They are always available to answer any questions. Debbie was my nurse during my treatment plan and she is so lovely. She really helps you stay positive when you keep getting negative pregnancy tests. She tries to connect with every single patient on a deeper level and really get to know you. The entire team always remained positive throughout my treatment plan. I think that helped us to keep at it! Thanks for all you do!"

"Dr Martin is absolutely wonderful. We could not imagine going through this journey with anyone else. So easy to speak to and so encouraging. My husband and I are so grateful Dr. Martin is part of our journey."

"Dr. Martin and staff are professional, patient and caring. They make a difficult process easy to understand and are there to discuss everything along the way."

"He is an amazing Dr and has given us hope in having a baby when we thought all hope was lost."

"I have nothing but the best things to say about the team at Shady Grove Fertility! Dr. Martin, Debbie, and Hailey were always so caring from the first appointment to my last. They all explained each step and process that I had to go through thoroughly so that I understood it completely. All of my questions were answered even the ones I thought of after I left my appointments and would call or email. The whole team made me feel like I was never a bother through all of those daunting experiences of countless bloodwork, shots, ultrasounds, and procedures. They were even super flexible with my teaching schedule. I would highly recommend Shady Grove Fertility to anyone that is struggling with infertility, you will be welcomed with open arms."

"Our experience with Shady Grove Fertility in Warrington was everything we could have hoped for and more. After our first appointment we had discussed with one another how happy we were to have a nurse and a doctor who had an answer for any question we had. Not only did they answer them but they made sure there was no confusion with any part of the process. We never felt treated as if we were just a blip on the schedule, we were treated with care and felt as our appointment was as important for the care team as it was for us. Each time an appointment was scheduled never did we feel nervous about meeting the nurse or doctor nor did we feel nervous about receiving our results. The process was simple and well explained to us, we wouldn’t want it done any other way or by any other group. We highly recommend this business to anybody who is looking for the same help we did. Thanks goes to Debbie Dancer and Dr. Martin who were both unbelievable and made us feel extremely welcome."

"We could not have had a better experience working with SGF! Dr. Martin is patient, caring, and makes you feel like a top priority. The staff nurses respond to all of your concerns in a matter of minutes and understand the mental strain that comes with difficulty conceiving. The office is clean and inviting and appointments always run on time. The support from this staff made all the difference in our journey and we left every appointment feeling educated and confident in our treatment. If you are looking to be more than just another patient put on a standard medical regimen and want a team that supports you, makes your treatment fit your needs & treats you like family, this is the place to go!"

"I highly recommend Dr. Martin if you are seeking fertility care. He is extremely knowledgeable, caring, and most importantly sets realistic expectations. I was under the care of another fertility physician before seeing Dr. Martin who was rarely available and did not provide the full information in order to build up unrealistic expectations. Dr. Martin and the entire Shady Grove team are phenomenal and I highly recommend them to anyone in need of fertility care. Dr. Martin and the Shady Grove team take such care with each patient and handle each conversation with care and sensitivity, making what is a difficult process manageable."

"Our experience with SGF Warrington was nothing short of comforting and reassuring. The staff there are incredibly accommodating and optimistic. They have the remarkable ability to transcend patient's apprehensions and concerns with thorough explanations and literature . The staff, especially Dr. Martin and Debbie, are super personable and relatable. The "human factor" they exemplify allows for more of a connection and relationship with the staff opposed to being just a number or another patient. You truly felt like you were be treated by friends and family. We wish we could take the SGF staff with us as we transitioned to seeing an OBGYN as leaving the practice was bittersweet."

"Dr. Martin and the whole Shady Grove team have been amazing. What might have been a really stressful and tense process turned out to be so smooth because of the awesome care we received. Dr Martin showed up to every appointment with a smile on his face, and took the time to explain everything simply and clearly. The entire team was also so friendly and helpful, especially our nurse Tori, who, because of, we left every appointment knowing exactly what we needed to do next, when to come back, and with all our questions answered. We would definitely recommend Dr. Martin and Shady Grove Fertility to anyone and will be back when we try for baby #2."

"In what was a very trying journey which tested our patience, psyche and questioned whether or not we wanted to continue the journey of becoming parents, Dr. Martin provided us with wonderful support, knowledge of our situation and his recommendations turned out to be exactly what we needed in order to realize our dream of having a baby. We are currently on a great path and none of it would be possible without Dr. Martin, Tori and the rest of the staff at shady grove that supported us throughout this process."

"My husband and I are so lucky we were scheduled for our initial appointment with Dr. Martin when we arrived at Shady Grove Fertility. He was a perfect fit for our personalities and made the process so much more easy going and less stressful because of that. He took the time to explain everything to us in terms we would understand (he even drew us some great pictures!) and we never felt lost or alone. His nursing staff is phenomenal and always kept in touch when I had tons of questions or concerns. I cannot recommend Dr. Martin enough - we are now pregnant with our first thanks to him and we couldn't be happier. If we need to travel down this path again in the future you can believe that we will be working with Dr. Martin!"

"Words cannot express how wonderful Dr. Martin and his team are. He and Abbie are compassionate and attentive. We will forever be thankful for their help."

"Dr. Martin and the Shady Grove Fertility team are truly a dream team that you can put your full trust in. The level of support, care, knowledge, and encouragement provided allowed us an incredibly comfortable and great experience. They truly share your goals and want to help you achieve your dream. I had many questions throughout the entire process and appreciate that Dr. Martin and Tori always took time to provide clear responses without ever rushing me or making me feel silly for asking. I went from being very nervous prior to my first appointment to completely relaxed and excited to see Dr. Martin and his team so we could navigate the path to pregnancy together. I feel some emptiness in my heart that I won't be interacting with them on as regular a basis now but I appreciate their proactiveness in asking me to check in with them to share my progress - I definitely plan to do so! I’ll miss being under their care and will forever be grateful that my husband and I met Dr. Martin. He was the perfect doctor for us to partner with and we would highly recommend him. If you read this Dr. Martin - thank you again for being such a kind, knowledgeable, professional, and caring physician! Keep sharing your positive vibes and warm smile with your patients :)"

"Dr. Martin and his staff are absolutely amazing! We could not have asked to be in better hands during this journey. All of our questions and concerns were addressed thoroughly and thoughtfully. We are so grateful for all of the time and dedication that was put into our treatment and we are thrilled to be expecting our twins this July. We would most certainly recommend Dr. Martin and his staff to anyone needing assistance and shall we expand in the future we will be going right back to them!"

"Dr Martin and his entire team were amazing through our one and a half year long journey. They provided the best care we could of ever asked for which ultimately resulted in a successful pregnancy with twins. They were compassionate through our struggles and always gave us hope. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is struggling with infertility."

"You spend your teens and your 20's learning how NOT to get pregnant, but what "they" don't tell you is that getting pregnant can actually be much more difficult than you thought. When we found out that it was going to take us a few extra steps, we were devastated. Ultimately, we got pregnant spontaneously then miscarried. At that point we were referred to Dr. Martin, and I could not have been happier to end up in his office. His caring and compassionate staff welcomed us wholeheartedly and walked us through each step of our IVF process. Now, a year after that miscarriage, we are expecting our rainbow baby in January. If you know you might have trouble or even suspect you might have trouble achieving pregnancy, do yourself a favor and call Dr. Martin."

"Dr. Martin was patient, generous with his time, addressed all our questions, and provided detailed, clear information. He also had a good bedside manner."

"Dr. Martin is knowledgeable, professional and thorough. From our first appointment until our last, he has supported us and helped us the entire way. A difficult case from the beginning, Dr. Martin was forthright and honest with us in his analysis and our options. We are expecting our first child and would not be here if it were not for Dr. Martin and his staff."

"My husband and I have been working with Dr. Martin for several months. Throughout our 3 IUIs, egg retrieval, and transfer, we absolutely could not have imagined working with anyone else. Dr. Martin is one of the most caring, compassionate, and trustworthy physicians we've ever met. Although we are thrilled that our first transfer worked, we are incredibly sad to be discharging from his care. We strongly recommend Dr. Martin and his team at SGF!"
