I arrived wearing a mask at the office 40min before my appointment. Although I had preregistered online, I was given additional paperwork to fill out and told to leave the office to complete the paperwork. I could return to the office 15min before my appointment and after the paperwork was completed. I was hoping but certainly not expecting that my early arrival may get me in early to the doctor. I would not have gotten there so early If I knew beforehand that an early arrival was not desired.
May 20, 2022
Very kind and welcoming
May 14, 2022
Whole office is very sweet and understanding
May 13, 2022
I like the fact that anytime you need help for Miss Carrie he is right there to it's this you and to help you get through any problems that you may run into it shows that the staff is caring and concern. The procedures within itself is a long process but she makes it easy so that you don't give up or get discouraged with all of the things that need to get done.
May 13, 2022
The doctor was very caring very reassuring that I will be in the best hands. He answered any questions that I was having doubts about and was very friendly and polite. I was very nervous going into this but he really did ease my anxiety

I thought I'd have to wait a week for scheduling the surgery which was fine but they got it done later on the same day of visit.
Apr 29, 2022
Dr. Espinal had a great friendly personality and it was nice that he was immediately on the same page as me.

Apr 29, 2022
I didn't realize I showed up an hour early and they didn't say anything or make me feel bad just took me in like normal. Each person I encountered was nice and the doctor and his great bedside manner made the whole visit pleasant and I'm at ease going into surgery as well just from that great experience.

Apr 4, 2022
Dr. Espinal went to great lengths to discuss my procedure with me and used pictures. He went beyond exploring the physical benefits of the procedure as well as psychosocial ones. I worked with Dr. Espinal for a short time on WT4 at Piedmont, and I can see why his patients loved him.
Apr 4, 2022
I was only in the waiting room for 5 minutes at the most. My appointment was at 1030, and I was taken back at 1030.
Apr 4, 2022
