Mount Sinai’s Adult Autism Clinic provides primary care services for individuals age 18 and older with an autism spectrum disorder, or ASD. Our caring and compassionate staff has been trained by the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities to meet the special needs of adults on the autism spectrum. We understand that every individual with ASD is unique, and have prepared a welcoming atmosphere designed to put patients at ease while maintaining their health and well-being.
Dr. Frances Martinez heads the Adult Autism Clinic. Born in New York and raised in South Florida, Dr. Martinez earned her medical degree from Nova Southeastern University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed her internal medical residency at the University of Florida Health Science Center Jacksonville. She also received clinical hyperbaric training and certification at the West Palm Beach Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Dr. Martinez has practiced internal medicine for more than 16 years, and brings considerable experience caring for autistic patients, seniors and others with special needs.
Before patients step foot in our clinic, they have access to a “social story” acquainting them with our facility and what to expect during their visit. Dedicated clinic hours facilitate a quiet environment and ensure that Dr. Martinez and her staff have ample time to address the full extent of each patient’s needs. Patient care and laboratory services are also provided in the same examination room whenever possible to help minimize change. Should the need arise for more specialized services, Dr. Martinez is prepared to coordinate care with specialists and other providers to ensure that patients benefit from a seamless continuity of care.
