Review of Dr. Martinez

- in N Ft Myers, FL |

I just had arthroscopic shoulder surgery in June from Dr Martinez to repair a torn rotator cuff and a bicep tendon tear and not only is he an excellent skilled surgeon but also a wonderful person! He prayed with me before surgery as he does with all his patients which was so awesome. He is just an awesome doctor and an awesome person and I wanted to write this review in case anyone is considering him for surgery he's the best! Nancy Lee Brown North Fort Myers Florida

Review of Dr. Martinez

- in Cape Coral, FL |

If it was possible to give 10 Stars I would truthfully I have never been led to a doctor like being led to Dr Martinez. He was given the gift of healing and he recognizes it as given to him from above. Surgery and the healing process has been so smooth and so watched over and I'd recommend Dr Martinez to anyone they're dealing with any sort of joint issue.

Review of Dr. Martinez

- in Lehigh Acres, FL |

I was if Florida on vacation when I needed an orthopedic surgeon, STAT. The local ER put me in touch with Dr. Martinez. I had osteo-myolitis and cellulitis in my left foot and leg. Dr. Martinez performed a miracle, He save my live and my left foot. It took 3 weeks in the hospital and 7 surgeries and 3 w\Wound Vac lines with Dr. Martinez. Then 5 more weeks as an outpatient with daily 3 hour infusions of antibiotics and wound care and redressing. I would highly recommend Robert Martinez,

Got injured and was able to get in the same day to be evaluated. Everything went smoothly from eval to MRI, to surgery to rehab, Everything but surgery all in one place. Staff was very helpful and compassionate. Dr. Martinez exellent. Had Dr. Gardner at one point and came back to him again. Have recommended him to several friends and family members. Exellent service.

Review of Dr. Martinez

- in Lehigh Acres, Florida |

If you're looking for a wonderful doctor, Dr. Martinez is your guy. P&P. Personable and professional. Takes the time to find out what's ailing you and diagnoses what the real problem is. He never gives up on a patient. Always goes the extra mile. Truly enjoys seeing his patients. Four years ago, he saved my wife's foot. Wouldn't hesitate to have any joint replacement from this true professional. Think you have an orthopedic problem? Do yourself a huge favor. Call Dr. Martinez.

1st visit - Everyone is very nice and don't get the feeling of being "herded" thru the process like some others local orthopedic Drs. do.

Review of Dr. Martinez

-Cape Coral, Fl |

In 2014 after many visits to other places for treatment of my back. I determined that my hip was the problem. Dr. Martinez immediately knew what was wrong and did an MRI to prove it. Torn gluteus medius muscle. Not common. He repaired it and it was a long recovery. 6 weeks in bed then up and walking with complete recovery in 12 months. Since then, he has repaired my rotator cuff and also my other hip. Like family, explains everything. Believe him, he is right on. Now in a new location.

Review of Dr. Martinez

- in Cape Coral, FL |

Met Dr. Bob in 1989 when he was in Lehigh. I had rotator cuff injury, his explanation of the procedure and his surgical skills brought my shoulder back to full mobility. In the following years when I thought surgical orthopedic surgery was required, his advice saved me time and money when he said that surgery wasn't required but exercise and care I would overcome my pain. Latest visit with him was in 2016 when he did carpal tunnel surgery to both hands to my complete satisfaction.
