I was referred to Dr. Martinez for a chronic sinus infection and he has taken the time to develop treatment plan with me that helps not only the original reason I went in but help prevent further issues. I am on CPAP and he has taken the time to make sure that all my sinus issues are being addressed (not just what I initially went in for) so that my sleep apnea treatment works it's best. He also takes the time to sit down and talk with me to help me understand my options and desires for treatment. I've seen more doctors than I can even remember over my lifetime due toy disability and Dr. Martinez stands out as one of the most caring doctors I've came across.

I was referred to Dr. Martinez for middle ear issues. I am very thankful I got him as my ENT. He's a very thoughtful person who does care very much about how his patients progress. I spent about a year under his care, as I got tubes in my ears and worked through that, and he was so good to deal with. He responds to questions/issues very quickly as well. I will (already have) referred him to others. The practice he's associated with is top-notch also.

Professional, Kind, Courteous, Informative, Concerned, Easy to talk to. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC JOB on nose surgery. I couldn't have received better surgery. Little to No discomfort. Did not have the usual thriving headaches that come with this surgery. It was BEAUTIFUL! You not regret choosing Dr. Martinez. The entire staff was very kind as well...except for the financial person who also schedules surgeries, but she could have just a had a bad day.

I saw Dr. Martinez due to ear pain and ringing in my left ear. I was given an appointment the very next day. When I went there Dr. Martinez was very knowledgeable, and made me feel comfortable given the circumstances. He cleaned out my ears and made me feel much better. I am very satisfied with the outcome and feel so much better after my appointment!
