Growing up in Havana, Cuba, Dr. Efrain Martinez was a high school volunteer at his city's hospital, where he helped care for patients' social needs. "I knew then that I wanted to be part of the healing profession and help improve the quality of patients' lives," says Dr. Martinez. "Seniors often face more medical problems with increased complexity that can disrupt daily living. I want my patients to live as free from poor health and its complications as possible. It's rewarding when patients put their trust in my care, and I want them to have absolute confidence that I'm watching out for them."
