I was impressed with their operation during COVID outbreak. Take temperatures and screen you at door and then have you wait in your car until they get you to see doctor. Very professional way to protect against transmission.

Smart, attentive, personable, thorough—-Dr. Espinoza is everything I had hoped for in a cardiologist. I felt confident after my visit. The tests he ordered seemed appropriate. He explained what he ordered and why. I appreciated getting a copy of the results through the portal. I also liked that all major tests and appointments were scheduled before I left. The fact that he is very handsome was just icing on the cake!??

My visits to see Dr. Espinoza are always pleasant and professional. His staff is courteous and professional. I have one complaint: your phone answering system, to be courteous, is "CHALLENGING" short of using expletives. Doctor and Staff wise, all is good.

I needed a Cardiology consult prior to my biopsy procedure and was referred to Dr. Espinoza. He was thorough in his explanations and instrumental in getting me scheduled for additional Cardiology studies on the same day. He personally called me Within an hour upon completion of my studies with the results. Exceptional service.
