Regina Martinez




Dr. K. Ashok Kumar, 2014 BCMS president, nominated his office manager, Regina Martinez, for the Unsung Hero award for January 2015 , which was presented at the Jan. 24 BCMS installation event at Oak Hills Country Club.


"Being a physician and a clinic instructor consumes most of my time," Dr. Kumar said in his nomination letter. "It is imperative to have a person who is reliable, trustworthy and committed to their job -- someone who handles their duties in a thorough and professional manner. I am very fortunate to have such an individual, Regina Martinez."


Ms. Martinez not only handles the day-to-day duties of the department "but keeps me in line and focused on the priorities of my practice and instructor duties," Dr. Kumar said. "Her support while holding the BCMS president position made my life very easy and smooth. Thank you, Regina, for your hard work and dedication."


The Unsung Hero program recognizes physicians' office managers and administrative staff who help BCMS members deliver the best quality care to patients. Winners receive gift certificates and are eligible for annual prizes.
