A native of the Valley, Dr. Martin is extremely excited to be serving patients back in the community where he grew up.
Our mission at Phoenix Spine & Joint, first and foremost, is to provide relief from neck and low back pain in the least invasive manner possible—and we do it in a patient-centric environment unlike any other in the field. Expedient pain relief for our patients is our priority—but we’re also on a bigger mission: to revolutionize the way in which health care has been addressing chronic neck and back pain. We think it’s time for a paradigm shift. We don’t just think it, actually. We know it. Why? Because the healthcare community has been viewing back pain in the wrong way for too long—and the patients are paying the price. We took a good, long look at how other medical facilities and surgery centers were set up and realized they were organized largely around the needs of the physicians—everything from the first contact, initial appointments, even the architecture and physical layout of the center. In other words, the patients’ needs did not necessarily come first…and in some cases maybe came dead last. This didn’t make sense to us. So we changed everything. Literally.
