Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Wonderful primary care provider!
Dr. Espinoza, now located in Nampa, Idaho, is a gem and I adore him. As a 37 year, now retired, nurse, I have worked with many doctors, both in giving and receiving patient care. Dr. Espinoza really listens, accepts my care ideas, yet we are able to carry on a good, two way discussion should he feel I'm needing further information and education in some areas. Very encouraging to find a provider who truly listens!

I've been a patient for two years now. Dr. Espinoza is by far the best physician I have ever had. He is very patient. He is truly interested in your well being and will educate you on the matters being discussed. He will hear you out and give you all the time you need to ask all the questions you have. I really cannot say enough about this man. I always walk out feeling I'm in good hands. I highly recommend him.
