I had my annual retina checkup with Dr. Martinez this morning. I have been seeing him for about 5 years, always a good experience but typically taking over 2 hours due to all the tests and various steps involved. Today was exceptionally fast - 45 minutes in and out! I was amazed. The Austin Retina staff has been working to be more efficient and their efforts have really paid off. Good news for me too - everything was stable and "come back in a year." Thanks Dr. Martinez and staff!
I've been seeing Dr. Martinez since 2009 and I would not see anyone else when it comes to my eyes. Dr. Martinez is patient and extremely knowledgeable. I greatly value the relationship that he has with me and always feel that Dr. Martinez has my best interests at heart. If you want the best, you must visit Dr. Martinez.
When I asked my optician to recommend a good retina specialist who would take time to answer my questions, he did not hesitate to think of Dr Martinez. That was years ago, and I am so grateful. Dr Martinez has helped me maintain 20/20 corrected vision while treating me for wet AMD. I'm so grateful for doctors like him and I trust him to help me keep my vision
