“As a longstanding member of this community, with established roots and many patients who, over the years have become part of who we are, it was extremely important for me to partner with a healthcare provider with a proven track record for delivering the highest quality care to its patients,” said Dr. Martinez. “I am very pleased and excited that Palm Medical Centers shares my vision of service and commitment to their community and will continue the legacy that we started.”
