Dr. Martinez is rude and defensive. My life threatening condition was not a surgical one and obvious mistakes were made by his staff. He basically was not interested in taking care of me and his staff told me he had too many patients. He cruelly told me I was terminal but when I changed doctors I learned my condition was easily treated. Martinez is not a compassionate doctor.
If your problem is not one which he thinks is important or one which will make him a lot of money, then expect to be ignored. He seems to focus on patients which he can operate on and make the really big bucks. Barbaric prostate removals are very profitable because of what the insurance company pays. Infections and preventative medicine is far less profitable. What a surprise. My experience was one of delay, and missed promises. Then finally after making many calls, I was politely told by his assistant that he is too busy with surgeries and other cases to see me. That guy wasted 2 weeks of my time and delayed resolution of my recurring infections.If you are a candidate for biopsies or surgery then he will probably be happy to take your insurance money. But I'll bet he will never tell you about 'needle tracking' or HIFU. Why deter a source of big income by telling how biopsies spread cancer, or about the safer alternative to barbaric surgery.
