My visit with Dr. John Martinez was ultimately ineffective and I was never called back with test results to a test he took on me. It has been almost three weeks since my visit and still no call back after I was told I would be called back in 3 days.

He was pleasant, patient and I did not feel rushed at all. The wait time was reasonable. This was the first time I tried zocdoc and would do so again.

The wait time was 50 minutes. The doctor himself was very polite, reasonably friendly, but was obviously in a rush to get me out the door and see the next patient. He answered all the questions I had curtly and professionally, it was just nothing exceptional that you would expect from a five star rated doctor. Maybe it was just a busy day, who knows. He still wished me good luck with my schooling on the way out, and obviously meant well. Just wasn't anything exceptional.

Long wait due to ZocDoc not notifying office of my appointment I made. I want to say that first and formost, because this has happened to me a few times. As for the professionalism, it was fantastic. Dr. John Martinez was wonderful, informative, observing, and friendly. Staff was friendly as well.

I? thought he was amazing!! I’ve tried showing my husband the irritation on my eyelids and he said he couldn’t see anything wrong, but when Dr. Martinez saw me he could tell right away my eyelids were very swollen and red. He was quick but didn’t rush me at all. I’m going back to him for my full body check very soon! His staff was also so very sweet!!
