Meet Dr. Gretchen Martinez

Dr. Gretchen MartinezGrowing up in Puerto Rico, Dr. Gretchen always knew that she wanted to work in the healthcare industry. She is fluent in Spanish and is always happy to help those reach their health goals!

“I didn’t like the idea of having to sit down and write a prescription. I wanted to do something more on the natural side. So I started doing research and decided to shadow a chiropractor back home.”

After that, Dr. Gretchen decided that she would become a chiropractor.

Education & Certifications

Dr. Gretchen earned her Doctor of Chiropractic from the National University of Health Sciences in 2012. She also is certified in the Webster Technique and acupuncture.

Providing Natural & Friendly Care

Friendly and personable, Dr. Gretchen enjoys getting to know each of her patients. She takes time to find out what’s brought them in and what they hope to achieve from their care.

She finds it highly fulfilling to help them using natural chiropractic care instead of relying on medication or surgery. “I like being able to help people using a safe, drug-free approach.” A passionate natural health advocate, Dr. Gretchen also enjoys sharing with her patients healthy lifestyle habits.

Chiropractic Can Help Everyone

While volunteering her services during various races while she was in chiropractic college, Dr. Gretchen knew that chiropractic was her calling. She was able to help runners before and after the races.

Whether she’s caring for athletes, kids, adults or seniors, Dr. Gretchen has come to realize that chiropractic care benefits people of all ages and stages. “These days, people are much more open to getting something more natural rather than just going to their primary care physician and getting a prescription for their pain.”

In Her Spare Time

When she’s not at the practice, Dr. Gretchen enjoys traveling with Dr. Francis. She loves anything outdoorsy and enjoys trying out new recipes in the kitchen because she loves to cook!
