Peter has magic needles – Peter Martin is great. I've been seeing him off and on for a variety of problems over the last 15 years.
Here's a recent example: I fell off a ladder while transitioning to the roof of my house. It was a 10 foot drop to my wooden deck.
I was bruised, scraped and battered but the worst damage was to my wrist. I immediately went to the emergency room and found out it was badly sprained. Prognosis: long, slow recovery. From emergency, I drove straight to Peter Martin's office.
He worked his magic needles.
Within 3 days my wrist was completely healed. He's that good. I highly recommend him.
Peter puts the "care" in healthcare. A real detective. – I have suffered from chronic low back pain for years. Numerous unsatisfying visits to varied specialists left me with little hope that I would find a doctor fully invested in troubleshooting the source of my pain. Some appeared to have a familiar routine that they applied to all clients indiscriminately, which didn't work for me. I was frustrated at not being listened to and shuffled through a healthcare mill with little regard for the impact this pain has had on my daily life.
Peter was extraordinarily and refreshingly enthusiastic about troubleshooting my pain. His thorough and well-rounded approach has me entirely pain free. In just a few treatments of acupuncture, e-stim, and a kind and compassionate tutorial on posture and body mechanics, he's given me the tools to manage my own on-going health. He was diligent in quizzing me about my improvement, and thorough in his follow through.
I am deeply grateful for his willingness to learn about and work with my particular combination of factors and symptoms to alleviate and correct my pain. Even more, his taking the time to teach me what I can personally do to contribute to pain-free living, I found invaluable.
If you haven't had acupuncture before, take my advice: don't wait as long as I did to give it a try. If you are a seasoned pro: Peter is a gem. Make an appointment. You'll be relieved.
Very professional and skilled acupuncture and massage therapy – Dr. Peter Martin of Balancemedicine has a impressive resume and is obviously very experienced. However, that is not what brought me to him in the first place or what keeps me going back for continued treatments. Where over a year of MD visits and various prescription meds have left me with the same health issue, Dr. Martin has drastically alleviated me of the problem within just a few weeks of seeing him. I don't know anything about the art of acupuncture or massage. I just know that Dr. Martin's deft and skillful touch has made a large impact in my health. He is very caring and shows genuine concern. He also does an excellent job of educating on health issues without seeming pedantic. An added bonus of the treatments is the relaxing effect that lasts for the rest of the day. I always look forward to the treatments and the majority of the cost is covered by my health insurance. -J. Sibert
