She was unprofessional, she rushed through everything, she made me very uncomfortable. I had just moved here from another state so I already had my due date and she kept asking me when my last period was and then when Ihad told her, her tone of voice made it seem like I was wrong and I didn’t know what I was talking about. I would not recommend her. I’ve never felt so traumatized and unsettled in my life. Definitely finding another doctor.

We were not permitted to see the doctor because of our LA Care insurance and not having a referral from the primary doctor. However, the receptionist could have checked our insurance information over the phone prior to our visit and saved time for both parties.

I found Dr M.s professionalism lacking. If my appt is at 9am I expect to be seen by 9:15 at the latest, not well after 10. Both times she was over an hour late and mine was the first appt ofthe day. Rather than ask you "What is the problem" and let you the patient give a thoughtful history she talks non-stop at you as if you have no education, knowledge or say so in the goings on of your body and your medical care. I spent much time typing my history in here at Zoc Doc but they did not bother accessing it. All of her offices are in run down communities and I praise her for helping those women less fortunate but she needs to be able to work with all sorts of clientele. Medically educated patients do exist and should be spoken with appropriately. The entire time she spoke with me she was looking away and her tone plain weird. She started the conversation-assuming I was not going to follow her advice which was not true as I had done everything she wanted me to prior. It was as if she doubted her own recommendations. Lastly, on my first visit the med tech-none of them wear badges-called me from the waiting room using my last name. How about some privacy. Gee whiz!

The office was surprisingly clean, updated, and nice; I found parking on a side street right nearby. The women behind the counter were very helpful in getting me the paperwork, and getting me started. The nurse that took my weight, history,and checked me in (she also took my blood later) was extremely nice and friendly. I only wish Dr. Martinson had been half as friendly. I'm extremely nervous during annual exams and PAPs because I've never been able to get comfortable with a doctor (constantly moving) and they're very painful for me. Dr. Martinson asked standard questions, talked about my history/method of contraceptives, and we started the exam. She did use a smaller speculum when I told her that the standard one hurt too much, but she wasn't nice or patient about it. She was very brusque and more interested in getting the exam over with than making sure I was comfortable. I guess she did her job, and that's all I can ask her to do. But she was also very curt with me about getting my prescription renewed (it was, admittedly, my fault I forgot the package) and warned me to call the nurses with it ASAP because she wasn't going to be in the office for more than another hour or two. She was about 30-40 minutes late to my appointment (I was sitting in the un-airconditioned exam room in those flimsy paper things waiting.... and waiting), too. So I guess really make sure you're on time for your appointment! The nurses and atmosphere alone are worth going here, but Dr. Martinson didn't really seem to care about me as a patient. She just wanted to get in and get out. BE WARNED. This office also changed my appointment without calling me to confirm it or ask! I booked my appointment through ZocDoc and the next morning I had an email saying that my appointment time had been changed. The people at ZocDoc were very nice about it, but it wasn't their fault. The nurse (Vanessa) also made my follow-up appointment without first asking what date/time worked for me. I have a really flexible schedule so it didn't matter either time. Just be wary of that!

I was very unhappy with her approach to my medical condition. She continue to insist on how it was that i knew of my medical condition. It was only obvious i had seen other doctors who told me i had thisand they did lab work to find out. I also waited over 1 hour.

Dr. Martinson could be more personable and more compassionate considering that this was my first appointment for my first baby and I am a little lost about everything.

This was my first visit. Dr. Martinson was professional, personable, was attentative and answered my questions to where I understood. With my condition she made me feel comfortable. She seemed to really want to help me resolve my issues.I thinkher attitude is right where it needs to be as a doctor. =0)

Dr Martinson is wonderfully compassionate, knowledgable, with excellent bedside manners. Although the wait time was long because she was delivering a baby across the street, she was well worth the wait!
