I like how she offered more sophisticated explanations than you usually get from providers.

June 13, 2014

Martini was great. She speaks to us frankly and clearly, which we really appreciate/need as new parents.

Dr. Martini was very caring and compassionate to my daughter and I. She put all of my feelings at ease and even threw in a bit of humor! Thank you Dr. Martini!

September 04, 2013

My concerns are always addressed. My daughter is very comfortable asking Dr. Martini questions and understands her answers.

August 26, 2013

Excellent experience. Both the nurse and Dr. Martini did not appear rushed and took their time with us.

August 21, 2013

We love Dr. Martini! She is so personable and explains things very well. She is great to work with!

February 13, 2013

Dr. Martini has been great with both of my kids. She takes the time to understand our needs and activities as a family and how that impacts my children. Good listener. Very happy to have her for my children's pediatrician.

February 05, 2013

This was not our first visit to the peds clinic but we recently change pediatricians so this was our first visit with Dr. Martini. She was lovely. She was great with the kids and communicated well with us.

December 28, 2012

This episode of illness lasted 14 days. I appreciated the access to the nurse on call, and felt reassured that the nurse had spoken with Dr Martini when she called to follow up with us. I also appreciated the level of concern that Dr Martini showed us, especially as the illness continued for so long.

December 22, 2012

Sometimes it is hard to get out what we are trying to say, our care provider gets excited and (I assume) accidentally cuts us off to answer questions right away without hearing everything we have to say. She is amazing however!!!

November 12, 2012

Dr. Martini always spends plenty of time with us to make sure all of our questions are answered.

November 12, 2012

The provider was very friendly, very personable, very caring and positive. I work in the healthcare and my expectations are high. Dr. Martini has definately met them.

November 12, 2012

We love Dr. Martini and recommend her to all of our friends.

October 15, 2012

We have seen this doctor twice, the experience we had this time versus last time with my older child was night and day. She has improved her demeanor with patients impressively as last time I left I swore I would never go back to her, this time had no choice and I'm glad we did. She is obviously a great doctor, and her "bedside manner" is much improved. Thank you!

September 06, 2012

Dr. Martini was excellent!!!

March 30, 2012

Due to the nature of our visit and the time of day, my daughter was referred to PCMC for further observation of her respiratory distress. I appreciate the concern shown by Dr. Martini to care for the emergent needs of my daughter.

March 06, 2012

Seemed to be a bit rushed.

February 25, 2012

Dr. Martini is very knowledgeable, but I didn't care for her bedside manner towards my child.

February 03, 2012

We love Dr. Martini! I will be very sad the day we have to switch insurance when I stop working for the U.

January 05, 2012

Seems to be rushed. I wish she take more time, and ease worries. Not all cases are typical.
