Dr. Espinal is awesome! He has brought me through my surgeries and made me feel secure that he was doing the very best for me. He is easy to talk to and explains everything in a way you can understand. I am very fortunate that he has been my doctor. I would recommend him highly.

Dr. Espinal did my gastric bypass about 12-13 years ago and I am still half the weight from my successful surgery. Dr. Espinal is always so professional and pleasant.
