Scott Martin has been practicing as a Physician Assistant for the past ten years in Baton Rouge, LA. He started out in Orthopedics and has spent the last 8 years practicing Occupational and Family Medicine. Through both of these specialties, he has acquired extensive experience with Travel Medicine.
