If you're looking for a wonderful doctor, Dr. Martinez is your guy. P&P. Personable and professional. Takes the time to find out what's ailing you and diagnoses what the real problem is. He never gives up on a patient. Always goes the extra mile. Truly enjoys seeing his patients. Four years ago, he saved my wife's foot. Wouldn't hesitate to have any joint replacement from this true professional. Think you have an orthopedic problem? Do yourself a huge favor. Call Dr. Martinez.

In 2014 after many visits to other places for treatment of my back. I determined that my hip was the problem. Dr. Martinez immediately knew what was wrong and did an MRI to prove it. Torn gluteus medius muscle. Not common. He repaired it and it was a long recovery. 6 weeks in bed then up and walking with complete recovery in 12 months. Since then, he has repaired my rotator cuff and also my other hip. Like family, explains everything. Believe him, he is right on. Now in a new location.

Met Dr. Bob in 1989 when he was in Lehigh. I had rotator cuff injury, his explanation of the procedure and his surgical skills brought my shoulder back to full mobility. In the following years when I thought surgical orthopedic surgery was required, his advice saved me time and money when he said that surgery wasn't required but exercise and care I would overcome my pain. Latest visit with him was in 2016 when he did carpal tunnel surgery to both hands to my complete satisfaction.

My 23 years of playing this sport is now coming back to haunt me but I Know I am in the most capable of hands with Bob !!

In 2004 I had my left hip replaced by another surgeon. I knew from experience that i needed my right hip replaced and I decided to find a new doctor. After investigating various surgeons, i decided on Dr. Martinez. In July of 2015 Dr. Martinez performed a full right hip replacement on me. It is now 4 weeks later and I am walking without a walker or cane. My experience with Dr. Martinez was absolutely wonderful. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends & family. Excellent surgeon!!

Dr. Martinez is very in depth and explains the whole procedure he plans, has a great sense of humor. He makes you feel comfortable and confident in the outcome. My wife had her rotator cuff done and it is now 3 months later and she is great, can put her are over her head, reach her bra...only problem she still cant play the piano. Lyonsdenfl

Very forthcoming with information concerning surgery before and after. Explains very well what he does and what to expect. I couldn't be happier with results from hip surgery. Minimal pain within a couple of days after surgery. There was no comparison to my other hip done 12 years ago by a different Doctor.

Dr. Martinez has a reassuring demeanor. He also has a great personality.

I'm from east coast Florida. I was with my orthopedic surgeon for 30 years. I was worried about finding one when I moved here. I found Dr. Martinez. What a pleasure that was. He has a great bed side manner and knows his field very well. He did rotor cuff surgery on me and my shoulder is like brand new. I WOULD recommend him very highly. He's a great surgeon !!!!!!
