“Dr Martinez saw our 11 year old daughter as her right eye was dilating more than the left and she had experienced some severe headaches with accompanying nystagmus. Dr Martinez was extremely thorough in her examination of our daughter, it was very clear that she is highly experienced in the area of paediatric neurology and was very calm and reassuring. She put our daughter and us at complete ease with her wonderful, caring, kind bedside manner and good sense of humour. We would highly recommend her, not only for her clinical expertise but her lovely manner. Her and her secretary are an incredible team. They are both diligent, efficient, friendly and most of all kind. We are very grateful for all that they have done for us and our daughter.“

    Doctor Martinez was fantastic both in terms of her expertise but also in terms of her ability to relate to our 14 year old son whilst relaying the importance of sufficient rest when suffering from concussion. She is also charming to a fault.

    Immediately put my daughter and I at ease with her warm and lovely manner. She explained everything, left no stone unturned and followed up with a report almost immediately. Amazing attention to detail and showed gentleness, kindness and the best gift - time.

    One of the best consultants I visited. Very thorough, spent a lot of time with my baby, very positive, reassuring, encouraging, helpful, while respecting my concerns and answering my questions at the same time. She's extremely knowledgeable as she gave me advice on other areas (hernia and hearing related) and pointed me to the right direction. I really wish other consultants were like Dr Martinez!
