Dr. Martinez is my "go to guy" when it comes to my respiratory system, I would trust his judgment at all times. He is the best. I would recommend him to any that may ask. Bill Austin

Dr. Martinez is a fantastic doctor. He takes the time to listen and always gives good advice. The meds he has prescribed for me have helped me tremendously, and when needed he has gone to the insurance company to recommend a drug they don't cover, and has successfully gotten it for me. When he discovers something that needs to be addressed by another physician, he has taken the time and effort to make sure I get the help I need. The office staff is very friendly and helpful! The Best!

Independence, MO |
I have been a patient for over 25 years with Dr Martinez. My asthma was so out of control when I first started as a patient. Thanks to Dr Martinez, it's under control. He has taught me how to manage it at home, prescribes the proper medications, and acts fast when it's needed. I highly recommend these doctors to anyone with respiratory issues. They just won't load you on a lot of medicines; they get you on the medicines that work. They believe you when you say you can't breathe.
