Dr Espinola is an awesome Dr and surgeon and the treatment and care I received from her was above and beyond the norm. She is kind in her bedside manor and explains everything in detail so you understand yet extremely professional .

I was referred to this Doctor for a biopsy. Instead of biopsy she recommended prescriptions (cost $178.00) use for two weeks and return in six weeks. After returning recommended second prescription (cost $60.00) dollars and once again use for two weeks and return in six weeks. I returned to the Doctor that made the referral and explained the situation. He referred me to another Doctor, saw him within a week and had the biopsy results in nine days.

Three visits. Bedside manner...not so much However if you are looking for a very competent, caring, professional then you will be going to the right doctor. Pretty too.

She has a could not care less attitute. We only saw her in the hospital following surgeries she performed. Prescribed medicine that we did not need. Could not be bothered tp call back to discuss alternatives to performing the 4th surgery, within three year span, which clearly did not work the first three times.
