Hi. My name is Doctor David Martin. I’m an Orthopaedic Surgeon. I practice Sports Medicine at Connecticut Orthopaedics. My philosophy with regards to patient care is the old-fashioned do unto others. Do unto others as you would like to be done unto you. And basically, I want to care for my patients the way I would like to be cared for or I’d like someone in my family to be cared for. That being said, I – I love interacting with my patients. I love being able to share in their – their – their problems. Share in their treatment. Share in their outcomes. There’s nothing better for me, than to see my patients, when all is said and done, and they’re fully recovered and basically, back into action. Many of them have regained their lives and it’s a very, very special feeling.
