Philosophy Of Care

As a Family Practice physician, I am passionate about providing primary care services in all the aspects of this specialty (Pediatric, general medicine, women’s health, etc.). Having the privilege of caring for a patient and most of the time the entire family is a great honor and one that I work hard to attain. Learning and putting into practice the latest advances in medicine are all highly important.

Dr Martinez's is a very good doctor

My comments on the nurse apply to a nurse named ... Not any other nurse. ... is just the nicest person and always, always treats me in a professional respectable way as a senior citizen patient. She is always the nurse - although she's not always available and I have a different nurse - I hope to see whenever I have an appointment with Dr. Martinez. I am sure she treats all patients in the same manner - she is blessed with pleasant personality and always has a smile on her face when interacting with myself as a patient. She always seems very patient when I have some questions regarding health issues.

I am very pleased each time I visit Dr. Martinez. He is always smiling and very pleasant and listens carefully when I have questions. His nursing staff is always very friendly and polite. I never feel like I am rushed if I have medical issues that I wish to discuss.
