What People Say About Dr. Jose Espinosa, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

This extremely skilled specialist operated on my lower spine back in 1998, when he looked like a kid (to me). He also called into surgery, a skilled neuro specialist, to assist. I haven't seen Dr Espinosa since 1999 - because his surgical skills were PERFECT. I told my ex-husband's wife (also a Dr) - about Espinosa; she'd had 2 unsuccessful spine surgeries. Espinosa was her 3rd spine surgeon - and he did his magic, yet again.

Dr. Espinosa took me in after my first Neurosurgeon dropped me. He is a very kind man. He makes sure I understand what he is talking about, and even once showed me images to show me why he wass doing what he was doing. I would highly recommend Dr. Espinosa.
