Dr Espinosa is the one doctor I enjoy visiting. I typically only see her once a year but it is always a pleasant experience and I always learn something that helps me to take better care of my health.

I went to Dr Espinosa because I was experiencing low energy a year out from having my thyroid removed. She was so helpful. She was very understanding, showed interest and compassion. She changed my medication. The very next day, I felt like a new person. She also scheduled lab work for six weeks out to check my thyroid hormone level as well as a few other energy-related things to make sure that my energy problem was due to the thyroid issue. I am extremely grateful.

She's very cold...not personable at all. Very by the book, which is great but she could soften her stance and have better bed side manners. I was in her office less than fifteen minutes for her to say I don't know why you are here Really? I'm telling you my concerns for a reason. I was referred to you for a reason, not just to collect my money and have me leave in tears, with no concern or compassion.
