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.
