Our experience with Dr. Martinez was nothing short of awful. We went in for our first ever prenatal visit at 7 weeks. She was extremely rough around the edges. Never once did we receive a congratulations or anything to calm our first time nerves. She did an internal ultrasound and proceeded to tell us that our baby was extremely small, like the smallest grain of rice. We were never given a due date or a confirmation of a heartbeat. We will not be going back to her, ever.

I had a very jarring experience with this particular Doctor. I went in for some unexplained bleeding during early pregnancy and she did a SUPER quick ultrasound, barely showing me the baby and telling me things looked generally normal but that I did have an unexplained blood clot that was causing the bleeding. She was so cut and dry about everything and said I would see tissue that looked like a carcass if I was having a miscarriage. She was dismissive in a time when I needed more compassion.
