Chuck Martin, MD
Dr. Chuck Martin is a Pacific Northwest native, but a bit more north than one might think. Born and raised in Kimberley, British Columbia, Dr. Martin grew up in a ski town in the Rockies before starting higher education at the University of British Columbia (UBC), in Vancouver.
After completing his undergraduate and medical school, Dr. Martin worked as an emergency and family physician in remote communities throughout British Columbia.
"While I loved the experience of practicing in the ER and clinics, it left me appreciating the expertise and guidance of radiologists and also cemented my goal of eventually practicing radiology," Dr. Martin said.
Dr. Martin returned to the UBC to complete residencies in diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine, later completing visiting fellowships at the University of Washington and University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Martin is a board-certified radiologist, with certifications from the American Board of Nuclear Medicine and the American Board of Radiology.
The best part of radiology for Dr. Martin is his ability to have a direct and meaningful impact on patient care as well as providing clinicians with information to treat their patients in the best manner possible. Dr. Martin joined TRA five years ago and works as the Medical Director of Radiology at St. Anne Medical Group.
"TRA is a wonderful organization that cares deeply about the patient population it serves," Dr. Martin said. " I feel humbled and privileged to work in such a high caliber and well-run organization."
When he's not working, Dr. Martin spends time with his husband Anthony and their two dogs, Rudy and Levi. The couple enjoys traveling, visiting family in Canada and New York, skiing, and scuba diving.
