    Dr. Espinoza has been the absolute best pulmonologist my mother has seen. She is the first dr. To get my mother’s asthma under control in over 45 yrs. she is very thorough, friendly and I believe she cares for her patients. When she left her practice at a clinic in Houma, LA to Metairie, LA, we definitely followed.
