Recently I had a small skin cancer removed from my face. Dr. Martinez was professional, polite and explained everything to me. He was extremely gentle and there was not any real pain with the procedure He explained everything. he answered all my questions. Later, at a follow up appt., when the stitches were removed I was extremely pleased with the results better than I expected. It was a very good experience for me as a patient and I highly recommend this Doctor as one of the best dermatologists

I have never been to a dermatologist before and I was quite nervous about having to see one knowing I needed to have some things removed. I found Dr Martinez on healthgrades. I called his office and it was very easy to make an appointment. The staff was welcoming and efficient. They made sure they took my insurance as well. When I met Dr. Martinez he was very efficient and warm. He addressed my concerns and ended up removing the growths I was worried about. He definitely put my mind at ea

After trying for months to see avo dermatologist due to insurance errors, I went to see Dr. Martinez. I had been suffering from a severe skin disorder for months and Dr. Martinez had an extremely rude, condescending attitude right from the onset. He lacked compassion, had no interest in trying to diagnose my issue and admitted this to me. He was cold, dismissive and was without a doubt the worst doctor I have ever been to in my life. This man only wants to profit from cosmetology for the wealthy

Dr Martinez is the worst Doctor I've ever been too. He told me he never grew moles &his nurse never grew moles but I have moles. He said it rudely - as if he and his nurse are better than me. Also he was rude when talking about medical issues. He didn't take time to investigate my issues nor address my concerns. I had to go back for a 2nd visit &it was worst than the first. I cried in the office because he was so harsh! I said I didn't want to see him - he arrogantly responds: feeling is mutual!
