My experience was very good.

Dr. Martinez seemed rushed throughout my appointment. I don't know if she felt she didn't need to explain things thoroughly because she knows I'm a nurse. I asked for a referral to see an allergist (which I got) but she was walking away from me as I was talking to her.

This is the first time and I am glad I came to see Dr Martinez.

Reviewed on September 3, 2018 7:00 PM

Honestly overall I was pleased with the visit, however the provider was undermining any questions & concerns I had because she was relating everything to my weight ignoring any other possible reasons.

Primary reason for visit was for extreme foot pain due to a previous injury (over a year ago). I have been dealing with the pain and it has gotten worse. X-ray was ordered and told to continue the same treatment I have been doing for the last year. Recieved a result of the X-rays but no other treatment was given, nor was I told what the following steps for care were. The pain is still present and I was really hoping that after the X-ray, something would have been done to help in providing relief for the pain since it makes everyday tasks difficult. I'm satisfied with service provided by the clinic and the Doctor, however, I'm disappointed that there hasn't been anything done to alleviate my pain.

The provider followed the training that works under system that's setup. No way or authority to practice in the direction that the patient feels best for them. Basically, follow orders type practice.

Dr Martinez made me feel very comfortable and was very detailed in her questions to make sure I received the proper care. she personally called me to come into the to office for a follow up and discuss results which were abnormal. She was very kind and caring and expressed herself in a way that made me feel as if she has been my doctor for a long time. The office staff was also very pleasant and efficient with arranging labs and other appointments. My experience at this office has been all around great and would highly recommend this doctor and this office to my friends and family.
