Patient Comments (4)
in Lock Haven, PA |
I was very happy with the feedback that Dr. Martinez gave me yesterday. We both took a look at the x-rays of my knee and then he showed me an exercise to strengthen my knee. He told me to do the exercise as many times through the day as I could and that surgery is the last resort. He was generous and very knowledgeable.

I was contracted by Dr. Martinez to perform secretarial services for him. I did so and provided EXCELLENT services for a very long time for him. He never paid me. I had to take him to court, and I won, but he still has never paid me. He refuses to answer any phone calls or letters written. But I guarantee if you didn't pay your copay when you visited him he would not treat you. I invite Dr. Martinez to reach out to me and do the right thing!
