What People Say About Dr. Raul Martinez, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I have been a patient of Dr. Martinez for several years. Initially, I came to him from a referral by my neurosurgeon, Dr. Donald Hilton. Every procedure that I have had by Dr. Martinez has been successful. He is experienced and extremely knowledgeable and confident--necessary traits that one would want in a physician who will be treating areas around your spinal cord. He is also kind and explains the procedures in a way that a lay person can understand. He makes you feel confident in his ability and in his genuine care and concern for you. His staff is friendly, well-informed and most helpful. I can't imagine going to any other pain management physician should I need one in the future.

I actually have been to see Jacqueline Ramirez the PA and have been very pleased with all of my visits with her. I appreciate how she explains things to me and helps me be more knowledgeable about my own care and treatment. and aside from that everybody I've come in contact with from the woman that checks you in the one that makes the follow-up appointment and the nurses plus with the doctors of getting two injections have always been pleasant experiences.

5yr+ patient---finally some higher seats in the waiting room. most all of us have need to sit more erect, w/o having to plop down and have a very hard time getting back up. Is this (the low seats) a way to further impede the patients progress in getting better? looks like job security for the staff----HMMMM?

I have been received pain management from Dr. Raul G. Martinez and his very friendly staff (hi Bea) for over 10-years. Greater than 11-years ago, I was hunched over and not doing much because of my L4-L5 area. I am now able to have a life, virtually pain-free. Dr. Raul G. Martinez, basically, saved my life.

Dr. Martinez and his staff are number 1 in my book! They always return my calls in a timely manner, always in happy moods which is hard to come by now a days in a doctors office, they are organized and have an effective system which any requests I need they are always there to help. Bea in the front desk is my favorite person there. She always greets me with a smile and a quick laugh before I go to the back. We need more dr office like this one! Thank you and I’ll see you at my follow up
