Dr. Martinez was very congenial and professional. He was able to explain rheumatology to me in a manner that was easy to comprehend…… In addition, he was clear on the diagnostics that he would use for the evaluation. I was very pleased with my encounter with Dr. Martinez!

It was my first visit. The wait was not long. Dr. Martinez was a good listener, asked thoughtful questions, and was not at all hurried. I loved his nurse, Cassandra. We were belly laughing after a few minutes. A very positive experience overall.

Had a very short wait to be seen by the nurse and Dr. Martinez. Dr. Martinez listened to my problems, answered my questions and quickly diagnosed my condition any provided a useful suggestion for pain relief plus a steroid shot in my wrist which relieved my pain. I highly recommend him.

He listens to me and then let’s me know what to do for arthritis. He asks if I want to proceed before he does it. I feel very confident in how he helps me. He listened to what my daughter-in-law told him too. We both like how he works with me.
