He was very good at explaining my biopsy reports of my thyroid & his gentle, calm & caring presence was reassuring. My surgery went well & the scar I hope will look ok

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.
in Lawrence, KS |
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!
