After explaining my ongoing trouble with falling asleep and getting a good night sleep to a friend, she recommended that I see Dr. Martinez. The appointment was scheduled right away and Dr. Martinez was very compassionate and thorough in reviewing my issues, which was a significant improvement from previous similar appointments with two other pulmonologists. I am looking forward to additional appointments and finally working through my sleep issues.
