Doctora Excepcional
Dr. Espinoza, fue increíblemente maravilloso conmigo. Era la primera vez que visitaba su clínica y un nuevo paciente. Ella fue muy compasiva y empática con todas mis preocupaciones que estaban siendo compartidas y abordadas. Espero verla en mi próxima cita.

Wonderful and Empathetic Doctor
Doctor Espinoza is a very wonderful doctor. I’ve been seeing her since 2019. I am a difficult patient sometimes and I make life difficult for her but she has been extremely patient with me and fully understands me. She is kind, loving, empathetic, patient and takes time to talk and listen to me which is very important. She is very professional and at same time very friendly. Honestly I am happy whenever I am going to see her. She’s one of my blessings!! I drive 45 mins to see her but I won’t trade that for anything. With her I feel heard and understood and I get the best treatment plan !!

Caring Caregiver!
Excellent “bedside” manner! Extremely patient! Stern at just the right moments! I don’t wish cancer on anyone but, if I knew someone going through any form of it, I’d send them to Dr. Alisa Espinoza hands down!

Excellent caring doctor.
Dr. Espinoza is compassionate and thorough. She guided me to other specialists to help determine the cause of my illness which resulted in a complete recovery while in her care. Anyone would be lucky to have her taking care of them.

I was first diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2019 and I was referred to Dr. Espinoza and then relapsed in 2021. I have been with her for 2.5 years now and I can't imagine being with anyone else. Dr. Espinoza feels like my second mom. She cares so much about her patients and always makes sure you understand everything that is going on before moving on. I feel so confident in her and her decisions in my cancer treatment. Also, she speaks Spanish (!!) and she is able to communicate so much information to my mom, who is sometimes left in the dark when not everything can be explained. Dr. Espinoza is super woman :)
