Dr. Espinola was the pediatric ENT on call when I took my daughter to the emergency room because her eye was swollen shut. Dr. Espinola did sinus surgery on her, and 24 hours later, you could barely tell that her eye had been in such bad shape the day before! It turns out, Dr. Espinola treated another family member 10 years before who was in a car accident and fixed him all up as well. We are all very grateful for her excellent care!

Trina no longer has the bedside manner she had 25 years ago. She appears to be way too pompous for her own good as she marches around the office stomping like an SS Officer. However; please beware that her billing procedures are unorthodox. She has TWO tax IDs for billing and will use BOTH on your one bill. One for in AND out of network. AND as for her billing "girl", be careful to NOT be able to get a word in as Shannon has taken lessons on talking over any one she cares to intimidate.

Great bedside manner - caring and understanding.

She just doesn't care......surgery was botched...she should not have even attempted it....her ego is too big....had to find another doctor and 9 more surgeries to fix her mistakes......stay away!

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.
in Tampa, FL |
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.
