The staff was very accommodating to get me scheduled in quickly. Dr. Espinal was great. it's been 8 years since my last surgery with him. He remembered so many things about me, without the benefit of the old files from that far back. That shows you the type of doctor he is... A GREAT DOCTOR!

The office visits and surgery were the best experience I ever had at a doctor's office. You have a top notch practice. Thank you for all that you have done -
May 22, 2020
it's hard to tell who is who or who you are talking to if you have to talk to numerous people. I like that I saw the doctor both times I was in office.

I haven't had surgery yet so I'll reserve some answers
