Internal Medicine at Rush is unique in that we are a small primary care practice located at a large, world-class medical center. Due to this, we are able to provide personalized care and a more intimate environment while benefitting from being in the heart of Rush's campus. We believe in prevention and practice routine health maintenance at every visit in order to detect and treat health conditions before they become problematic. Additionally, we help coordinate the care our patients receive from specialists.
For urgent matters, there is always a doctor on call, and you can send a message through MyChart to your physician. Together with the Walk-In Clinic, located in the Professional Building Suite 155 (elevator 3) on Rush's campus, these services ensure that our patients have continuous access to high-quality medical care.
We look at ourselves as partners in your overall well-being, and are excited to work with you towards whatever health goals you may wish to achieve.

She began her career in oncology, but for the last 16 years she has worked in internal medicine. Above all else, Martin views herself as a patient educator. She takes pride in her ability to teach patients about their health conditions and procedures in order to minimize anxiety.
