Ratings for Dr. Valdemar Martinho
Every time I see Dr. Marthino, I always feel rushed (just a number). People below praise him and how he deserves to only work 3 days a week. Thing is he does work the other two days ( Private clinic $$$). Don't get me started on his admin. She is the worse ( never calls back, forgets to send your refferal to the specialist) these issues happen a lot and the problem is if you mention it to the doctor, he protects her and gets mad at you. I've had him once talk about my mother's issues to me without me asking or wanting to know ( whatever happened to doctor patient confidentiality?) I really don't recommend him at all - I'm just stuck with him until I am able to find another doctor and we know how hard it is to get a family doctor in this city.
Has been my family doctor since I was born (over 30 yrs). Yes, he only works 3 days a week, however as another person stated he has EARNED it! After working so hard for so many years he deserves a break now so that he can continue being the best family doctor one could ever want or need. He could easily retire anytime, but has chosen to at least provide these 3 days a week to help the Ottawa public. Extremely knowledgeable, very helpful, does not treat me as a number, and never rushes me out the door to get through as many clients as possible! I have always received a call back when I left a message on the answering machine at the appropriate time (which are stated in the outgoing message), it may not be instantly but that's fine with me.
