Dr. Espeleta came highly recommended. I was very impressed with his office staff and with him. He's very caring, very knowledgeable and takes his time to sincerely consider individual needs.

Wow. A pulmonary doctor who listens, researches for unusual diagnoses and doesn't drop the ball. In the hospital, goes to the bedside every day, actually listens to and examines the patient. Didn't know how rare that is! And figured out additional diagnoses and solutions other docs had missed. What a pleasure to get someone who's smart, attentive, kind too. A big difference, and made such a big difference in my care.

Always in a hurry. Paid the full amount with sleep apnea study but no result was given. Better look for other pulmo specialist.
