Dr. Carlise St. Martin, MD

Dr. Carlise St. Martin

Originally from Trinidad, Dr. Carlisle L. St. Martin immigrated to Brooklyn at the age of 5. The oldest of eight children, he was raised in a poor single parent home by his mother, a public health nurse. As a young child, his eyes were badly crossed. At 9 years old, he went through a series of three rigorous eye surgeries, leading him to his vocation of "helping people like the doctors that helped him."

In 1972, he was awarded a scholarship to attend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and completed medical school at SUNY Downstate. After his residency at Long Island Jewish Hospital, Dr. St. Martin opened his own medical practice in Forest Hills, Queens in 1984. He credits his childhood mentors, the nuns at St Barbara's Elementary School, for giving him the foundation to excel in his studies. "Once you can read you can achieve anything," says St. Martin. As an attributed neurologist who has helped hundreds of people nationwide, he is also an active member of The Book Bank Foundation.

Inner-city children's literacy charity, The Book Bank Foundation honored neurologist Dr. Carlisle L. St. Martin at the 5th Annual BBF Hero Awards. Glenn Toby, Founder and CEO of The Book Bank Foundation presented Dr. Carlisle L. St. Martin with the Vanguard award for his exemplary leadership and achievements within the medical community. Glenn Toby said, "Dr. St. Martin is one of the most prominent neurologists in our community and has given so freely and quietly that it often appears as if it does not happen at all. I can't count how many times he has given free medical care to New Yorkers in need."
