Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

Patient Comments (2)
in Augusta, GA |
I have a condition that caused recurring holes and tears in the retinas in both eyes over the last 4 years. Dr. Espinosa did an excellent job of repairing them. New holes can happen at anytime and many occur in hard to reach areas of the eye and he has done whatever possible to repair and keep them from getting worse. I owe a huge thank you to Dr. Espinosa and all the doctors and staff there who do an excellent job of making me feel confident that I'm getting the best care. Highly recommend!!
Augusta, GA |
Very rude to staff and my husband and me as patients. I have a very rare eye condition which he didn't seem to know a lot about. That is understandable since it is rare but he was very rude and insulting about. He actually had the nerve to tell me I did not have pain so he knew he would find nothing. Of course I was having pain (I should know!) and later at a doctor who specializes in my condition I was shown to be having a flare because correct imaging was done.
