Dr. Martinez-Wittinghan worked a few years as a researcher and returned to clinical work in the family residency program at Long Island Jewish Medical Center. During his last year of training, he was elected chief resident by his peers and program director.

He is passionate about improving quality, team-based care and is currently completing his master's degree in health sciences informatics through the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He believes that technology should be used to improve patient care and decrease the burden to health care professionals.

Dr. Martinez-Wittinghan's unique training helps him focus on finding the cause, not just masking the symptoms of disease.
