MEET THE DOCTORS IS OUR ONGOING SERIES OF INTERVIEWS FEATURING THE TALENTED PEOPLE BEHIND THE MEDICINE AT RADIOLOGY IMAGING ASSOCIATES AND INVISION SALLY JOBE.
Meet Gregory Martin, MD, Vascular and Interventional Radiologist
How, when and why did you decide to pursue a career in medicine?
I have always loved science and problem solving. Even though I always felt like medicine was in my future, I studied chemical engineering in college. Studying engineering gave me excellent training in how to think and solve problems, however, I wanted a job that would allow me to impact someone’s life in a direct way. Medicine, and in particular Interventional Radiology, gives me that opportunity.
What do you like most about your job?
The ability to help someone in a direct and substantial way.
What is your favorite way to spend free time (away from work)?
Spend time with my wife and 4 children as well as golfing, snowboarding and reading.
What do you like most about working at RIA?
The wonderful interventional radiology partners I work with every day. I would trust any of them to treat one of my family members, if the need arose.
