Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Espinosa has been great! I have knee problems, and he has worked with me t use methods that will meet my needs. Shelley, his assistant is also great. Always pleasant, and always returns my phone calls. As a nurse myself I know how important that is. Very good experience overall. I have told many people about Dr. Espinosa

Dr. Espinoza is an excellent Doctor. He has performed surgery on my knee, as well as surgery on my daughter for her knee and shoulder surgery on my wife. All surgeries had excellent outcomes.

Dr Espinoza did 3 shoulder surgeries and an elbow surgery on me over the past 8 years and I’ve had great recovery each time. Thanks to him i have no more pain with either. I’ve been a pt of his for over 10+ years. His nurse Shelly and Dr E make a great team and I’ve sent all my friends and relatives to them whenever they have trouble. Great Ortho surgeon! Period!

Dr. Espinoza got the job done when I need my rotator cuff repaired. He was able to explain the procedure before and after so that I understood everything. He got me in therapy the day after surgery to keep scar tissue to a minimum and range of motion to the max!

We have been so thrilled with Dr Espinoza as well as the staff at the Airline clinic. We have been to this clinic before so when my daughter injured her knee the most recent time, we wanted to go with who we knew. We have the utmost confidence in him When she needed surgery,there was no question. I would not go anywhere else.
