    Dr Martinez was incredibly patient and helpful, she took the time to go through all the details of the issue, had a lovely bedside manner with my son, and carefully explained the chosen course of treatment. I found her to be very calm and understanding, and very attentive, which was very reassuring. Furthermore, even just 1 day after starting her recommended treatment we have a significant improvement in my son's skin, with further progress every day. I would highly recommend Dr Martinez and am very appreciative of her help.

    Great first consultation! We were extremely late but she still took her time to explain things to us and prescribe the right treatment because in less than a week our baby boy's skin is already looking 1000% better. She has been accessible and very helpful. Great service!!!

    I had a very good experience seeing Anna for my 6mth old baby's eczema. Anna thoroughly examined my daughter, listened to her history and advised on treatment which has helped my daughter. She followed the appointment up with a call to check how things were going and confirm a test result. Not only is she clearly very knowledgeable but she was very warm and reassuring. I would highly recommend her.

    I was at the end of my tether worrying about my 7 month old son with his extreme skin condition. After seeing other doctors in A & E and GP without any good results I was happy to meet Dr Martinez. She is a very kind lady to my son and myself and seemed very interested to get to the bottom of my son's problem. I felt confident that she would help us the best she can. Her explanation of the problem and treatment needed was thorough. Nothing seems to much trouble even when I had to phone her in between appointments. I feel I can trust this doctor and she has put me more at ease over a very worrying situation. Thank you.

    Hi Dr. Martinez, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for your care. I was so relieved to see how quickly my child's eczema healed and how the haemangioma on her face looked better after one week. You were very helpful and positive during our visits together and I felt cared for and looked after. It has been very nice to meet in person, especially during these unusual times when there is great hesitation to meet face to face. It meant a lot for you to examine my child, offer reassurance and follow up in person with us. We just moved from California this past January and lockdown started a week before my child was born. Visits from our family in the USA have been postponed indefinitely. Just to have someone look at my child and offer care and support, has gone a long way. Thank you again for your work, patient care, and an overall positive experience that will last a while. Be well and kind regards,

    very good and experienced doctor who can diagnose and treat skin conditions with success. I had my child go back and forth to the GP without any success as they mostly treat by covering up the symptoms but not actually treating the underlying problem. With Dr Martinez, she knew exactly what the issue was and was able to treat with success. Thank you Dr. Martinez!

Besides all her exceptional professional qualities, she is a very kind person who has an excellent approach with both children and parents.
