      Dr. Martinez saved my Husbands life and we will be forever grateful to him! He went beyond the call of duty. Dr. Martinez is the most patient, kind and caring Doctor that we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is up to date on new life saving medications. We have referred several of our friends to him and they all feel the same. He is awesome! Patti and Tiny van Tonder

      I have been a patient of Dr. Martinez for the past nine years. I have found him to be a most patient, involved and caring physician. He has always involved me with his plans for me and has kept me informed at all times as to what is happening. He treats his patients with respect and as intelligent individuals. He is knowledgeable as to new techniques and is up to date with new medicines. He really cares about his patients. I have never felt rushed during my appointments.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
