About Dr. Martinez

Philosophy of care

My goal as your orthopedic surgeon is making sure you understand what is going on with your body and then discussing the evidence-based treatment available to help you. Taking my time to make sure my patients are comfortable and understand everything that is going on is a priority to me. I want to work with you as an individual to make a plan that is right for you. I strive to provide quality interventions and help return you back to your favorite activities as quickly and safely as possible.

Why I entered medicine

I enjoy educating and being an advocate for individuals. That plus my interest in the sciences and the human body made becoming a physician a great fit for me.

Community involvement

I have participated in medical missions such as to Puerto Rico for Hurricane Maria disaster relief, and plan on continuing to be involved where there is need. Locally, I am the team orthopedic physician for East Stroudsburg University. I am a board member at Oakmont Tennis Club in Allentown.

Personal interests

I enjoy spending time with my wife, family and friends. I also enjoy traveling and playing tennis, golf and other outdoor sports. I am a proud father of two beautiful daughters. I speak fluent Spanish.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
