I can honestly give Dr. Espinosa 5 stars, he save me medically & emotionally. The diagnosis I had was not common. The day I stepped foot in his office, he knew what the problem was, he assured me that it can be fixed, and spent along time explaining everything to me. His bedside manner, is so calming. After surgery he was so exciting to talk to me regarding the successful surgery. I just had my last appointment with him and his PA/Lauren who is also truly amazing. I could not thank them both for giving my life back.

Back in 1997 Dr. Espiosa-Bacerra operated on my brain aneurism in Kingston Ontario. A complete success for him and myself. There isn't a day go by that I don't think of him for giving me a future with my family. He is a true professional and realized his calling in life. I owe my life to him and he told my wife that it was his honour to let him do the surgery on me. I salute you Dr. Espinosa , you are my true life hero.

Dr Espinosa performed my neck surgery in 2006. I have pain again in neck but not due to anything other than severe arthritis. Dr. Espinosa was great, he was very professional and caring. My fusion was done perfectly and it gave me years of pain free and low pain existence. I have recommended him to family and friends for years. I am indebted to him for performing the surgery and allowing me to work and live as almost normal after He performed a spinal fusion from C4-C7. My deepest thanks!

Amazing doctor, wonderful staff and spends quality times explaining procedures. He performed a rare surgery on my mother and did a great job! He's doing back surgery on my husband soon and I know he'll be in good hands.
