While in private practice he abandoned me as a patient , without refills or written notice or referral, which is far from proper, but I did not know better, otherwise I would have would have complained to the state liscencing board and then filed a civil suite.

My experience with Dr. Martinez has been excellent so far. During my pre-injection visits he listened and explained carefully my problem and the procedure. His staff is very professional and polite. I got an epidural at Crescent City Surgical Center, the staff there made me feel like I was the only patient being treated that day, they were great. The procedure was fast and nearly painless, Dr. Martinez is very genital and professional. It's almost a week and my back feel a bit better.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Martinez. He is extremely knowledgeable, as well as having common sense and the right amount of skepticism. He is thorough with his exam and explains why he makes his decisions.
