Dr Martinelli was very kind and I felt he did a very thorough exam of my knee. I left the last dr who did my surgery because he was cold and acted like I was a just a number. I was very pleased with Dr Martinelli.

Dr Martinelli has been my orthopedic dr for well over 15 years. His bedside manor is very professional yet he has a way making you feel like family. He shows how much he cares because he is straight forward about is best for you as a patient. He WILL NOT perform any surgery that might cause any bad results. The last surgery Dr M. perform on me was a left knee replacement. The surgery was a success even with my complications. I love him! So thank you Dr. Martinelli. See you soon.

I’ve been seeing Dr Martinelli for years for joint pain in knees and shoulders. He did a total Knee replacement for me 3 years ago and now I can walk again. Will be getting the other knee replaced once I am healthy enough to get clearance for surgery. I find him to be straight forward in explaining your options and caring.

I found Dr. Martinelli to be straight forward about my ankle injury, surgical procedure, recovery plan, and how personal training would be necessary to my recovery. My surgery went well and I am healing by following all the instructions I have been given.

My family & I have known Dr. Martinelli since he started with Association of Alexandria Orthopedists, Commonwealth Orthopedists & now OrthoVirginia; 23 years. He is one of the best Orthopedists in the area & has an excellent reputation. He may appear to be a bit abrupt at times which can be off-putting, however, he is extremely knowledgeable about his procedures which instills confidence in the patient. Just needs a little softer demeanor at times. Love him!

I am giving Dr. Martinelli 3 stars because he has, in the past, made the right decision for other injuries. The most recent, however, sealed my decision to seek out another orthopedic surgeon. Basically he looked at my MRI images (in the moment, despite my having told the office I was sending images their way, they didn't have them read prior to my appointment) and said there was fluid build up but nothing concerning. Sent me back to sports. 2nd & 3rd opinions is tear to syndesmosis. Concerning.

Dr Martinelli has performed several procedures on me, as well as patching up a few broken bones. I trust him completely. He is smart, funny and not anxious to operate unless I need it. He treats me like a person, and remembers me. I've been seeing him for over 16 years, and have referred many to him who adore him as well. Always explains things in plain language and gives me the time I need.
