Our Services


  • I can't thank the paramedics at Donald Martens enough for how well they took care of my mother.  They transported her from Chicago to the Cleveland Clinic and back.  We were really apprehensive about the long trip but she did great.  Thank-you.

  • Donald Marten & Sons has been providing medical transport for my daughter for about 6 months. The drivers have been really great to work with.  They really understand her special needs and go out of their way to make sure she's comfortable.
