Dr. Martinez is an excellent doctor. Also her staff are very kind.

January 25, 2020 12:32 PM

I have always received very good attention as much from my personal doctor Estella Martinez as from my urologist Dr. X.

December 12, 2019 1:13 PM

This was my first visit with Dr. Martinez. I had difficulty with my previous advocate office. I also wanted something closer to home. She was able to access my records and begin to get to know me. Dr. Martinez seems acceptable and I will continue to see her.

December 12, 2019 11:35 AM

Very good it is an excellent staff the doctor an excellent person and explains to me very well when I speak to her she returns my call thank you for expressing me.

November 18, 2019 1:34 PM

The appointment went well as always the only thing that considered me was that i wanted to speak of two issues that i had with the Dr and the nurse said to pick one or the other the Dr will only address one of them.

November 18, 2019 1:34 PM

it was good

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

I received an excellent attention in all my visits.

October 28, 2019 7:00 PM

She is always being positive and trying to help me get better.

October 16, 2019 7:00 PM

I like the treatment that they give me in the Clinic, but they take a long time because we don't have more doctors in the clinic and the appointments are given very _____ and sometimes we go make an appointment because we feel sick and they don't have appointments, you need more doctors!

September 29, 2019 7:00 PM

I felt the doctor was rude, judgemental and disinterested. she was unwilling to gave a conversation about questions I had but insistent on doing a pap smear even after I told her I was on my menstrual. she repeatedly asked to conduct the pap even asked was I "gushing blood". she seemed to only be concerned with what she can charge me and what I did for a living. horrible encounter.

September 15, 2019 7:00 PM

rushed experience just wanted my co pay and sent me out the door.

September 1, 2019 7:00 PM

made us feel comfortable and open to asking whatever questions we had, then answered them thoroughly.

August 30, 2019 7:00 PM

I had a great visit

August 25, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Estella Martinez is attentive, caring, and listened. To my concerns in regards to my health issues. Explained and took the time to offer additional. Pamplets and resources about my condition.

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

very informative and answered all my concerns

July 31, 2019 7:00 PM

Every time I go to see my doctor it's always very very good to talk & see her. Thank you everyone who works there. They are all great.

July 10, 2019 7:00 PM

I have gone to Dr. Martinez for a couple years. Always been very satisfied with the care and attention that I have received from the front desk to the nurses and Dr. Martinez.

June 20, 2019 7:00 PM

What occurred was that they attended to me well. Spoke about my blood exams they did to me all I had to know and I was left satisfied.

June 16, 2019 7:00 PM

Very bad.

June 10, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr.Martinez is very professional and courteous, she caresfor her patients and it shows

June 5, 2019 7:00 PM

receptionist X is awesome, always so polite and nice, she keeps you informed of everything. Medical assistants are always very nice as well - they vital you quickly and have you ready for the provider. Dr. is very nice but sometimes she can talk too quickly that it's hard to follow. However, she is very professional and asks about issues going beyond just the reason for visit. She is awesome :)

May 29, 2019 7:00 PM

I enjoyed - my visit. Although was disappointed in them failing to inform me about my test results. Also, I needed a specific shot and they failed to check.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

I am a very unhappy patient. Recently I seen Dr. Martinez because I am pregnant and bleeding and wanted her to confirm if I was in fact miscarrying. I still haven't gotten my blood work results. I've called and sent an email an I don't know if I lost the pregnancy. I have to go in person I guess this Tuesday so they can give me the results. This is a very sensitive issue and I should of know the results the following day. I am very disappointed with Advocate.

May 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Was excellent.

April 18, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good.

April 7, 2019 7:00 PM

The Dr was very informative and helpful.

February 1, 2019 6:00 PM

my doctor took the time to answer all my questions and concerns. and I didn't wait too long to see her

January 25, 2019 6:00 PM

My experience was very good.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Martinez seemed rushed throughout my appointment. I don't know if she felt she didn't need to explain things thoroughly because she knows I'm a nurse. I asked for a referral to see an allergist (which I got) but she was walking away from me as I was talking to her.

December 3, 2018 6:00 PM

Very professional and concerned about my weight loss.

November 19, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Martinez is great! Receptionist and Medical assistants are always very nice and helpful.

October 9, 2018 7:00 PM

Very pleasant.

October 7, 2018 7:00 PM

Great and fast appointment (:

September 16, 2018 7:00 PM

it was good

September 3, 2018 7:00 PM

This is the first time and I am glad I came to see Dr Martinez.

August 30, 2018 7:00 PM

Honestly overall I was pleased with the visit, however the provider was undermining any questions & concerns I had because she was relating everything to my weight ignoring any other possible reasons.

July 31, 2018 7:00 PM

Primary reason for visit was for extreme foot pain due to a previous injury (over a year ago). I have been dealing with the pain and it has gotten worse. X-ray was ordered and told to continue the same treatment I have been doing for the last year. Recieved a result of the X-rays but no other treatment was given, nor was I told what the following steps for care were. The pain is still present and I was really hoping that after the X-ray, something would have been done to help in providing relief for the pain since it makes everyday tasks difficult. I'm satisfied with service provided by the clinic and the Doctor, however, I'm disappointed that there hasn't been anything done to alleviate my pain.

July 30, 2018 7:00 PM

It was not a good experience. I did not feel comfortable.

July 24, 2018 7:00 PM


June 20, 2018 7:00 PM

I liked the service very professional from the doctor.

May 29, 2018 7:00 PM

March 10, 2018 6:00 PM

im new at this clinic. i transferred here because it is very close to my house. i like Dr Martinez she is nice. the girls in office are very nice to me and helpful

March 5, 2018 6:00 PM

The provider followed the training that works under system that's setup. No way or authority to practice in the direction that the patient feels best for them. Basically, follow orders type practice.

December 29, 2017 6:00 PM

had back pain it was the second visit for this issue and she gave me new med.

December 27, 2017 6:00 PM

I Estela for the moment I feel good with my doctor. Estella Martinez is a very good doctor for me for the moment she is a very pleasant person & nice person.

December 26, 2017 6:00 PM

Very good and clean office, excellent service.

December 24, 2017 6:00 PM

excellent and extremely knowledgeable

December 19, 2017 6:00 PM

Very good.

December 18, 2017 6:00 PM

Well sometimes I forget to the nurse about other problems that I have so she can put it on the computer and when the dr. comes I tell her and she doesn't want to attend that problem I need another appointment and sometimes there isn't any appointments for lack of doctors sorry.

December 17, 2017 6:00 PM


December 1, 2017 6:00 PM

Excellent. the best doctor ever.

November 30, 2017 6:00 PM

Very satisfactory.

November 6, 2017 6:00 PM

Dr Martinez listens to my concerns and answers all my questions

October 15, 2017 7:00 PM

My provider was knowledgeable, and compassionate.

October 1, 2017 7:00 PM

I do not like her. she has listed me as seeking drugs when I have been prescribed the same drug for over 15 yrs and am dropped in amounts & milligrams when I count on the medication to function properly, I feel it is wrong & inconsiderate.

September 23, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Martinez is great. I like her holistic approach to medicine. looking at the foods we eat that could help improve overall mental health. like that she speaks Spanish and is very understanding. receptionist and MA were very nice and helpful.

September 18, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Martinez is ok

August 31, 2017 7:00 PM

A very nice and friendly doctor. Staff and doctor treat us with courtesy.

August 30, 2017 7:00 PM

My best experience was to go to that clinic - to know the people - A1.

July 24, 2017 7:00 PM

I liked their attention a lot, very professional.

July 23, 2017 7:00 PM

The doctor was good but did not return any of my phone calls. She told me to call on certain days I did but could not talk to her. To date I still haven't.
