Austin Retina, and specifically Dr. Martinez, are outstanding! I first saw Dr. Martinez a year ago with a torn retina. He performed an in-office laser repair that took about five minutes. Today, my retina is still stable, and all floaters are gone! Terrific support staff as well. They are all professional and, like Dr. Martinez, are friendly, caring, and personable. Dr. Martinez and his staff are an excellent example of what is accomplished when someone combines innate talent with hard work and dedication to achieve a highest level of skill and care. They have my utmost gratitude!

He is the best. I have been seeing Dr. Martinez for over 6 years related to a macular hole in one eye and then the other. He treated both differently but without surgery. I would never see anyone else.

Dr. Martinez is wonderful physician - incredibly knowledgeable yet very down-to-earth, respectful, positive and very gentle. Also, everyone on his staff - from the receptionists to the medical staff and his billing and insurance specialists - have consistently been really helpful, caring and kind - and that at every one of my almost 20 visits there over the past 2 1/2 years! I couldn’t be more grateful to Dr. Martinez and his entire staff for the excellent care they have provided me, and I feel completely safe going there even now as I’ve seen Dr. Martinez and his entire staff taking every precaution to keep everyone safe from Covid19.

I had the opportunity to be seen by Dr. Martinez recently on short notice. My issue was identified in Virginia, and needed a follow-up with a professional specializing in the retina. Since I had to immediately travel to Texas for private business, Dr. Martinez kindly volunteered to work me into his schedule. When I arrived at the office, the staff could not have been nicer, welcoming me and helping me as a new patient. The visit was highly efficient, cordial and professional throughout. It is clear Dr. Martinez and this office is the gold standard for well-run operations in this medical service. I very highly recommend. Scott Alexander

I suffered a dramatic and instantaneous partial loss of vision on 21 Jan 2019 in my left eye. I had no idea what was going on so I stopped by Costco in Cedar Park and saw Dr. Linda Pak. She informed me I was hemorrhaging in that eye and called Dr. Martinez on the spot. 90 minutes later I had been examined by Dr. Martinez even though it was very late in the day and he performed laser surgery to repair several tears in my retina and a partially detached retina. I was very impressed with Dr. Mart

An absolutely great experience at Austin Retina. The staff are professional, friendly, and provided with the most state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, at least as far as I’ve ever seen. Dr. Martinez is fantastic. Great patient manner, and explained everything clearly so that I knew exactly what was happening with my eyes. I can not recommend he and his clinic any higher! Awesome.
