"I have used Dr. Martin on 2 occasions. Lipo and then lipo and tummy tuck. He is very kind and honest. I love his work and recommend him highly."



"Dr. Martin and his staff were amazing. They took the time to answer my questions and explained everything so well. I'm thrilled with my results."



"I believe it is important today more than ever to give credit when due. The divide that exist today in all sectors of our society will continue unless the apathy shown by many is not curbed. Example: Due to some bad choices by me in my youth and into my late thirties, I exposed my body to harsh sun rays by spending time on beaches and its waters. I experienced my first skin cancer when I was 38 years of age. I am now 76. If all the scars left by the removals of my skin cancers were connected with a pen it would shame the best Tattooer’s art collection. By no means, am I minimizing the previous Doctors and Surgeons that helped me during these years. Just recently, my Dermatologist connected me with Dr. Justin P. Martin, M.D., Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dothan, Alabama for the removal of two (2) Melanomas. Both removals were successful. But to a greater extent, Dr. Martin’s persona was such that if a description of the traits that a Doctor should possess one would see those of Dr. Martin’s. It would be hard to include the scars that were left by Dr. Martin’s surgeries in the “connect the dots” above as the scars are hardly noticeable. Wait, there is more. The professional care and service shown by the nurses and staff mirrors those of Dr. Martin. Thank you each for the care you gave me."



"Doctor and staff very caring. Had skin cancer on my nose that required some reconstruction with skin graft. Everything went very and looks great. I highly recommend him."



"I can't say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Martin and his staff. He never seemed hurried when I visited his office for my initial consult and made me feel very at ease with his extensive knowledge and professionalism. Dr. Martin is a meticulous surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone. I underwent a breast reduction/lift and was thrilled with both the appearance I was left with after my surgery, as well as my ease of recovery. I would definitely choose him as my doctor again!"
