VIPcare is home to the most caring and compassionate providers. They strive to provide 5-star care and always put the patient and their needs first. Dr. Kelly Martinkus from our primary care clinic in Cocoa is an excellent example of this.
She takes the time to get to know her patients and makes them her priority. Dr. Martinkus is coming up on her one-year anniversary with VIPcare. So, in honor of this, meet Dr. Kelly Martinkus.
She’s a general physician with over eight years of experience.
Who is Dr. Kelly Martinkus?
Dr. Martinkus is originally from the Chicago area, where medicine played a significant role in her life at an early age. She was born into a family with much exposure to the medical field, with her mother being a nurse and her older sister diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
She recalls going to doctor visits and physical therapy appointments for her sister and being fascinated by the medical world.
“Being able to go to those appointments with my sister made me really realize how awesome the healthcare field is,” she said. “Being able to see the different aspects of healthcare and how [doctors] can provide a better quality of life is something that really drew me to the medical field.”
Dr. Martinkus attended Illinois State University before heading to the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara School of Medicine in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, where she received a bilingual, bicultural medical education. She completed her medical internship at HIMA San Pablo, Caguas in Puerto Rico.
Dr. Martinkus is a member of the International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA) and is an advocate for language-specific medical interpreter training with bilingual healthcare provider involvement. She believes that healthcare providers can provide medical interpreters with insight into the medical field that goes far beyond linguistics.
Dr. Martinkus is excited to be able to combine her love of medicine, language, and culture through medical interpreter training. Her goal is always to improve her patient’s quality of life.
“When you have a patient say thank you for helping me get my life together, and they can show you that they’ve had a better quality of life… that’s one of the things that makes you want to come back and keep doing this day after day,” she said.
