Caring Doctor
I was recommended to Dr. E by my primary doctor, i started to have issues with my lungs after a pneumonia, my ENT also didn't know what was causing my breathing issues, long strory short after almost 2 years i am finally breathing and talking without catching up my breathe, she fought for me to get the dupixent injections by appealing so many times until i was approved. This injections had reduced my nose polyps helping breathe better. I have no words to express my gratitude to Dr. E she's amazing and God gift to me. Many blessings to her and her stuff

Dr. Espinoza was very nice and attentive at the first visit 3 weeks ago. The chest x-ray I had presented suggested an abnormality, so she had me do a breathing test at the visit. It was abnormal, so she had me do a swab test which would take 2 weeks for results, and ordered a CT scan. Two and a half weeks after the swab test, I emailed her asst. regarding the results of the swab test, and the asst. did not respond. After the CT scan, I emailed the results to the asst. and stated that I would love for someone to call me, as my symptoms seemed to increase. She emailed back that Dr. Espinoza was not in, but that she had talked with her and she would call me that afternoon. She did not. Next morning, I called Office Manager, who said he would talk with Dr. and get back with me. He did not. Assistant emailed me the results of the swab test, which they had received one week after test taken. No explanation about the results...just the results. I suppose I am to self-diagnose.

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.
