Dr Espinal is awesome!! He performed a surgery on my husband years ago. This is why I waited for Dr Espinal to perform my surgery. I couldn't have asked for a better Doctor. He has the best attitude, his honesty and concern to give the best care possible is admirable. He's the best!His staff is also awesome. I talked with Mary when I called, she was so helpful and caring. I greatly appreciated the undivided attention she gave me.
