We had the good fortune of connecting with Mike Martinez II, D.O. and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mike, what do you attribute your success to?
The success of my brand can be attributed to the profound art of conversation. Whether it involves dedicated discussions with patients and their families, or seamless communication with fellow healthcare collaborators such as referring providers and hospital systems, the ability to engage in meaningful dialogues has been instrumental in my thriving practice. In today’s digital age, the invaluable skill of conversation seems to have diminished, as people increasingly gravitate towards digital interactions. However, I firmly believe that human connection through verbal communication remains paramount. While some may excel in crafting a brand image through keystrokes, I have thrived by embracing the power of spoken words. By incorporating genuine conversations, I have not only strengthened our in-person relationships but also enhanced our digital efforts, creating a synergistic effect that bolsters our brand presence.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My greatest source of pride is twofold: Firstly, the successful establishment of my own practice, meticulously crafted in the image I had envisioned; and secondly, the fulfillment of becoming an integral pillar in the inception of a remarkable anesthesia program in Fort Worth. The path to this achievement was a product of serendipity, sparked by a chance opportunity as a fellow at UTMB, where I crossed paths with future physicians who would ultimately present this incredible prospect. The journey was far from easy, characterized by a persistent refusal to accept “no” as an answer. Along the way, I have learned that private practice presents an escalating set of challenges each year. However, I find it equally rewarding to have the privilege of designing something that aligns perfectly with my vision and ideals.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
When visiting Fort Worth, one of the most enriching experiences is to immerse yourself in the spirit of the city by spending time at the Stockyards. This iconic location encapsulates the heart and soul of Fort Worth, showcasing our vibrant culture that continues to thrive to this day. To make the most of your trip, I would recommend starting with a meal at Joe T’s, savoring some delectable cocktails on the rooftop of Attico, and then dancing the night away at PR’s.

The following day, I would suggest heading out west to Weatherford, where you can find a tranquil cabin retreat at Fuller’s Folly. This escape offers a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with nature and spend quality time with your family and friends. This combination of vibrant city experiences and a peaceful getaway in the countryside would create a truly fabulous and well-rounded Fort Worth experience.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I owe my success to my beloved wife. Her unwavering support has been the cornerstone of my ability to commit time and effort to a startup project. Throughout the challenging journey of transitioning a startup, she has stood by my side, providing invaluable encouragement through every high and low. She is my rock, the steady force that urges me to achieve greatness even when I may be willing to settle for less. Her unwavering belief in our potential fuels our collective determination to accomplish more. I am immensely grateful for the privilege of sharing my life with her and our children.
