My husband and I visited Dr. Esnaola on my Birthday 7.27.16. I was in quite a bit of discomfort and pain when I came in to my appointment. Dr. Esnaola was wonderful! He addressed my problem in a timely fashion, was very considerate and accommodating, AND solved the issue that was causing my distress. He made my day! Thank you so much for your terrific care Dr. Esnaola! Henrietta and Earl Lewis

Dr N. F. Esnaola is an excellent, caring surgeon with a great bedside manor and followup after surgery. He is honest and makes you feel at ease when talking to him. I was concern as to have any surgery do to my age and not knowing what if I don't. He went over all options prior to me making a decision. Now that it is over I feel good about what was done and the follow up down the road.
