Rio Rancho, NM |
I went to Dr. Esparza with a chronic back problem. I saw his PA the first visit and was very impressed with his knowledge and the time spent with me. I was scheduled for an epidural which was not successful. I followed up with him and was told I needed to be referred to a Neurosurgeon for possible surgery. He did not try to talk me into more epidurals so that he could bill for more appointments or procedures he put my best interest ahead of making money.

I was told by my doctor that Dr Edparza was excellent and could help me. I never saw Dr Esparza and only saw PA. He told Me there was nothing he felt he could help me with. I have been treated at a pain clinic for 18 + years and he can't help me! Seriously? What breaks my heart is that i give up! Unfortunately, I never saw Dr Esparza ! I paid to see Dr Esparza and why he didn't see me I don't know! I literally felt like a nobody when I left! I cried all the way home because I needed help!

Went to Dr. Esparza for many years and he misdiagnosed my issues, wasted my money on lidocaine shots, and wasn't certified to do any significant procedures. In other words, the best he could do was provide an insignificant bandaid. My suggestion would be forget Esparza and find a pain doctor who is also a bird certified anesthesiologist, if not, just give your money to the homeless on the street for better results! This guys a certified quack.
