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.
