“February 11th, 2024 marks the 10th year since you performed the five-level fusion on my back. I thank God every day for guiding you and your skills which gave me back a quality of life that allows me to function normally.

My wife, Eileen of over 55 years passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2022. Living without her has been extremely difficult, however I cannot imagine how I would live without her without having the quality of life you gave me with your surgical skills. Since Eileen has passed, I use most of my time now to build swings for Gods Special Children. This brings me great satisfaction seeing how they respond to being able to use these swings.

Without this surgery I would not be able to build these swings or do most of the things which come with a normal life. Again, I thank God every day for sending you into my life and allowing you the skills to perform this very delicate surgery and allowing you to help mankind. I continue to pray for you daily at Mass.”

“I have had chronic pain from spinal conditions most of my adult life. Thankfully my PCP sent me to see Dr. Martinez over 20 years ago. Dr Martinez is a kind, compassionate and knowledgeable doctor and has helped me get thru many difficult days. Because of Dr. Martinez and his competent and caring staff, I have been able to live a full and enjoyable life despite my disabilities.”

“I am back!!!!! In the mountains for the first time. Climbed 3000′ in 1.5 hours. Round trip of 2.45 hours!!! Sooooo happy. Thanks s0000000 much. Could not have done it without your amazing skills.”

“Thanks again to Dr. Najeeb Thomas for pulling me through another surgery successfully. Minimally Invasive back surgery at 3 levels, almost complete recovery in two weeks from being unable to walk more than a block without resting. Today I did 2 miles. I’d recommend everybody ask for ‘his’ divine intervention. There’s no other way to explain it. I feel so unworthy (or very lucky.)”

“Happy day. Thank you for seeing me. I appreciate your time and effort. I also appreciate your expertise.”

“I’m now able to go shopping and for long walks with my husband! I have my old life back! Thank you!”

“Thanks for your impeccable standards, 1st knowledge of surgery and your caring attitude towards me as your patient. Best wishes always.”

“It’s 30 days post-op and I seem to be walking much better although still a long way to go. Still a lot of sensory pain in the shoulders but that’s getting better too. It’s really amazing what these people do to give you your life back.”

“Thank you for performing my recent back surgery. You kept your word in telling me that I would be able to walk out of the hospital only after hours of recovery. I cannot thank you and your staff enough for allowing me to walk again without any pain. The Good Lord watched over your excellent surgical skills while at the same time protecting me after my 12’ fall from my deer stand. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you did for me.”

“It’s because of you that I am walking today. You are a miracle worker in Beth’s and my eyes. We will be forever grateful to you and your dream team.”

“For almost 10 years I suffered with lower back pain which prevented me from even walking even a few steps without stopping to sit down or lean against something. My PCP recommended Physiotherapy which included stretching with weights and water therapy. When this did not work, I was under the care of a Chiropractor, which didn’t help either. Then I took epidural steroid injections, twice. The first epidural gave me relief for about 3 months, but the second did not work at all. At this stage, 2 of our children who are Physicians, sought out Dr. Najeeb Thomas, who after seeing the Xray’s and MRI, suggested TLF between L5+L4. It took me some time to digest this cause I never wanted any surgery in my 70s. However, after going through the procedure, I realized that I now have a new lease on life.

I started getting back to normal gradually following the regimen that Dr. Najeeb Thomas and Ms. Kriste Parent prescribed. I work out daily and have never felt better. I now participate in many charitable 5K walks regularly and I feel better each day. In fact, I look forward to my workout routine now.

My sincere gratitude and constant prayers go out to Dr. Najeeb Thomas and wish all his patients feel as well as I do always.”
