Philosophy of Care

"My philosophy of care is centered on the doctor-patient relationship. I take pride in getting to know my patients' medical, social, and family history as well as understanding unique work and family issues. I approach each patient as a unique individual. Therefore, I create an individualized care plan for each patient. When medical decisions need to be made, I present patients with the available options and help them make the best decision. Medical language can be complex, and I explain each finding in terms that are easy to understand".

Very difficult to speak to someone in the office when calling in
Feb 7, 2022
When calling in to speak to someone in your office I'm unable to speak to anybody very frustrated
Feb 6, 2022
While the in-person contact was very good, the phone options for the automated system could be improved. While the options are typical of what someone calling might need, one might not know that to get information regarding insurance authorization that they need to go through the "Make An Appointment" option and then possibly get disconnected for the wrong option inadvertently.

Dec 30, 2021
Exceptionally nice staff! Dr. Martinez not only answered my questions but explained the answer in such detail that was easy for me to understand and be able to relay to my family.
Dec 22, 2021

I trust DR Martinez and will see him again but if I have to be seen in the parking lot-or have to wait 1 1/2 hours again it will be my last time at your clinic.
Dec 8, 2021
Dr Martinez behaved in a very friendly professional manner, considering he had to examine me in the parking lot of the building in view of over 60 apartments, the 2nd & 3rd story windows of a hotel and the adjacent businesses parking lots. He diagnosed me appropriately and presrbied treatment woked very well. I do believe that I have returned to my normal health. But having to be seen in a parking lot and able to see others being examined in the parking lot as well is definitely not in accordance with HIPPA laws.
Dec 8, 2021
Just had temp and pulse taken in my in the parking lot.
Dec 8, 2021
Was forced to drive around to the back of the building and wait in the parking lot in my vehicle.

The receptionist kindly printed out the necessary intake documents when I was having trouble accessing them online, despite a conveniently organized paperless system. She could have acted irritated and bothered but was the opposite, kind as understanding.
Nov 10, 2021
No complaints. The nurse listened and was attentive.
Nov 10, 2021
I arrived a few minutes early, yet waited 30 minutes to get called into see the doctor, then waited another 20 minutes to see him. Dr. Martinez apologized for the wait upon our introduction but did not explain any reason for the wait.
