Rick MartinTo Our Wonderful Communities and Patients,

I have decided to formally retire from Martin Foot and Ankle.  In October of last year, I ruptured my patella tendon.  Over the years I have had lots of tendon problems, including many surgeries for chronic Tendinopathy.  It was due to the chronic tendon issues and ongoing back issues that I decided to fully retire.

In 1981, I joined my brother Craig in practice.  In 1982, we formed Martin Foot and Ankle, and the following year, I married my lovely wife Carolyn.  It’s hard to believe that MFA has grown from 3 assistants/staff members to over 100 with multiple locations.  We are a blessed organization, which has grown from Podiatric services only to now include Physical Therapy and a strong administrative staff.

In my early years of working, building the practice was a big priority.  At the same time, my family was also increasing in size.  My wife Carolyn has been, and continues to be, a large supporter of my endeavors, and I am looking forward to the rewarding time ahead that will include spending time with my 5 grandkids.  I am fortunate to have one of my sons very close by, with my daughter living about an hour away, and my other son is currently away attending medical school.

The profession has been very good to me and my family, and provided lots of care and opportunity for a lot of people.  I humbly thank God for the blessings that he provided for the practice and for all of our families.

I believe Martin Foot and Ankle can look forward to many years of strong leadership in the profession as we have in the past.  There is a strong leadership team in place, and Martin Foot and Ankle will continue to take excellent care of you and your family.  Thank you so much for all of your support over these years.


God Bless,
