I had a really positive experience visiting with Dr. Martinho. She was very respectful and understanding. She made me feel very at ease when I talked to her about something that made me very nervous. Her and her staff were friendly and even gave me advice on how to communicate with my insurance company. I will be coming back for any future medical needs.

Dr. Martinho is wonderful! She took the time to explain each diagnostic step and medication she was recommending, and even prescribed a backup medication for me to try in a week or two in case the "first line" ones didn't work. Would highly recommend!

Dr. Martinho took her time with my appointment. I did not feel rushed in any way and got a chance to ask questions and receive thorough responses. I recently moved to NY and after trying a few doctors, I'm happy to say I found the right one for me!

I haven't had a physical in 17 years. The longer I put it off, the more afraid I had become. The nurse who took my vitals was friendly and put me at ease. Dr. Martinho was down to earth and friendly. She wasn't rushed. She took the time to answer my questions. She went above and beyond. I'd be happy to recommend her to anyone. I'm no longer afraid and will schedule my visits annually.

I moved to NY three years ago and had been looking for a primary care physician ever since. Often people are afraid to visit the doctor for fear of hearing bad news or not being completely sure of family health history - I was one of those people. Dr. Martinho's office was a breath of fresh air - from her assistant Apollonia to Dr. Matinho! Both women made my experience a painless one, literally. As someone who hates needles, I thought Apollonia was great at drawing blood. Dr. Martinho put me at ease with her professional demeanor and genuine concern for my well being. She wasn't stuffy and didn't carry a condescending tone. She was very easy going and easy to talk to, maintaining a calm and reassuring tone when answering my countless questions. I really could tell she cares about her patients. She even shared personal experiences which reminded me that she is human too! Would definitely recommend!

Dr. Martinho has been my GP for two years and she's just fantastic all around, I can't recommend her enough. She really makes time for all her patients, asks thorough questions, proactively reviews your medical chart and makes suggestions, and has an incredibly empathetic but energetic and upbeat approach. I wish I could give 6 stars.

I hadn't found a great doctor in NYC yet and have been switching for years. I was thrilled with my visit with Dr. Martinho. She was attentive, relatable, explained everything in great detail and was very easy to talk to. I also didn't feel like she was rushing out the door. I've never reviewed before, but this warranted one. Definitely recommend!!

I have no complaints about Dr. Martinho personally. She was efficient and informative. However, this place has a lot of issues. Her receptionist, Rita, is a piece of work. She is constantly on the defense and thinks that everyone is yelling at her. Her phone etiquette is horrendous! She started screaming at me, picking fights, and threatening to hang up for no reason. So bizarre! When I was in the waiting room for my physical I heard her talking this exact same way to someone on the phone so this is a common occurrence for her. Someone who deals with the public should not act this way. Moving on...a week later, when my blood test results came in, I received a call from the office: "Your lab results came back, the doctor would like you to come in." A little freaked out by this I said, "Well, is there a glaring problem, is it urgent?" and she replied with, "I can't tell you now. The doctor would just like to see you. Please come in as soon as possible." Um, okay? So I went in terrified and asked to first see my results to determine what the doctor wanted to see me about, before I went in for an office exam (which would've been billed). EVERYTHING WAS FINE. They just wanted me to bill me for another office visit. Another huge issue is that this office charged me for a routine test (ekg) that was done during my physical, coding it as a diagnostic, which in turn caused the insurance to bill it to me as an extra. It should have been coded as routine preventative since it is a routine part of an annual exam. They denied doing this and blamed the insurance company. Even though I liked the doctor okay, I won't be returning here. Too many issues and too many other options for doctors in NYC to have to deal with this kind of incompetence.

Dr. Martinho is a great doctor who truly cares about her patients. She is a 'Sherlock' when she is pinpointing the issues why you may be sick. I never felt rushed and she explained everything with detail. I would recommend Dr. M to anyone who want's a competent and caring doctor!

Once I got to see Dr. Martinho, she was great! Very personable and friendly and she took the time to ask more questions and listen to my answers than doctors typically do in NYC practices. However, I had to wait a long time for my appointment (her receptionist wasn't even there for the first 20 minutes or so, and wasn't very friendly when she did arrive) - even though I was one of the first appointments of the day. Dr. Martinho was apologetic once she arrived, so that made it a little better. It's possible that it was a fluke based on a bad transit day, but it was a frustrating waiting room experience overall. Hard when the docctor is great but the process to get to her is painful!

I like Dr. Martinho. She's straightforward, but kind and I feel like we can cover a lot in a little time. Not judgemental either and rolls with all my musings about things. Staff is friendly, but not so much at the desk. Overall, it's an easy office to use for last minute appointments and their testing facility is quick!

Loved her. Was a bit of a wait as she was running a little behind plus for a first appointment as a new patient its always best to have sufficient time and not be in a rush. She was super thorough and took the time to answer all my questions for my physical as a new patient. I've needed a new general doc as mine previous one moved out of state and I'm definitely satisfied. Will be back annually. Thanks Doc! :)

Dr Martinho was fantastic!! I highly recommend her!! I came in late for my appointment and her assistant was able to get me in right away and was friendly and helpful. Dr. M is so knowledgeable. She thoroughly answers all of your questions. She understood all of my symptoms and had many possible, forward-thinking solutions in putting together a treatment plan. She was super cool and extremely easy going. I will be seeing her as my primary from now on.
