Dr. Martel received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical School. He relocated to North Carolina for an internship at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Martel then completed an internship and fellowship training in cardiology at the University of Colorado Health Science Center, where he practiced until 1991. Dr. Martel is board certified in cardiovascular diseases and interventional cardiology. He is very interested in the preventative aspects of cardiology and enjoys helping patients learn healthy lifestyle modifications to better manage their cardiovascular issues, which can greatly increase the likelihood of achieving their goals for health and wellness.

When he’s away from work, Dr. Martel can often be found coming down tall mountains, either on his mountain bike or his snow skis, depending on the weather. Dr. Martel takes advantage of all Colorado has to offer, but he also enjoys traveling to new and exciting places.

Pleasant, attentive, productive, heartfelt and cooperative.

The visit was to provide an update to a chronic heart and potentially serious condition and to coordinate with my other health providers. Fortunately the condition remains stabilized.

I would like not to press 1 to speak english when getting an appointment reminder. 79 % of the residents of the US speak english, while only about 19% speak spanish. The rest are other various languages. Why force the majority to press 1?

prompt, courteous help, questions answered with thought and consideration

I had a very good experience. It seems everyone has to wait in the waiting room. I know that I arrived 20 minutes early because I was asked to come 15 minutes early. You never know if the person ahead of you may have a lot more issues than me. So you just wait.

It was fine. No changes.

I was pleased this time. Both the nurse and the doctor were friendly. The last few times I came it seemed that the nurses were stressed trying to get everything done quickly so they wouldn't get in trouble. This time it was more relaxed. The doctor was more open to talking and hearing what I had to say than in the past. I was pleased and felt that I had a good visit this time and got the information I needed.
