Dr. Espinel saved my life when I had a colon obstruction where 4 feet of my colon had died off. My labs and vital signs were all normal, but my pain kept increasing. Dr. Espinel listened to me instead of relying on lab reports, and saved my life. He was passionate about the care I was receiving in the hospital and I always felt confident that he was an advocate for me at all times. I will always be thankful for Dr. Espinel!
