Patient Reviews (4)
in Reston, VA |
I want to express our thanks and admiration for the professional care and consideration I received from Dr Espinel. He removed my troubled gall bladder last week and I had my followup visit today. Throughout, his analysis and careful explanation of my situation gave me confidence that I was in the right place. He answered my questions and he gave my wife confidence that everything possible would be done to fix my problem. He is an outstanding surgeon and person.
in Mount Juliet, TN |
I found Dr. Espinel to be very knowledgeable, competent, and compassionate. He listened to my explanation of symptoms, asked appropriate questions, and explained my diagnosis and my options thoroughly in manner I understood. I found him to be conservative, but very thorough. I appreciated that he did not order unnecessary tests. His robotic procedure was without complication and my recovery has gone very well. I have and will continue to recommend this fine surgeon to all family/ friends.
Murfreesboro, TN |
This man, while he may be a competent surgeon, has no bed side manner and when there are possible complications after the fact he denies they were caused by the procedure he did and refuses to help correct the issue. I would not recommend him to anyone and would advise friends and families avoid him if at all possible.
in Murfreesboro, TN |
Dr. Espinel is a outstanding surgeon and has a lot of compassion for his patients. Plus, he has a positive personality; unlike most surgeons who suffer from narcissistic personality disorder. Also, he does not get mad or upset when you call him in the middle of the night for a urgent medical problem. Dr. Espinel has enormous amount of knowledge and experience not only as a surgeon, but as a human being.
