Dr. Estopinal's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Estopinal "I grew up knowing I wanted to serve in some capacity, and as a Catholic, I figured it was either to be a priest or be a doctor," he said. "I began volunteering in high school at Jo Ellen Smith Hospital, and then I knew I wanted to be a doctor." For Estopinal, the only question was what field of medicine he would enter and as he began taking different rotations as an intern, he quickly found a love for emergency room medicine. "I liked it because it let me deal with every kind of situation you could imagine," he said. "I had the trauma, I helped people with injuries and I even got to deliver babies. It was kind of like being an old-fashioned doctor who went to see families and handled everything. I really liked that."Estopinal believes most doctors "are born to be in this field," and he sees himself the exact same way. "I have a deep faith and I believe God gives people like me the tools to do this," he said. "It certainly takes a special person to live this kind of life and deal with the things we face. "He came to Slidell to work in the emergency room in 1993 and continued as an E.R. doctor for many years, until Katrina struck and brought about a new opportunity. With the help of another provider, Doctors Urgent Care was formed. Known as "Dr. E" to his patients and staff, he enjoys his one-on-one care for his regular patients."When I walk in the door of a room to see a patient, everything else gets put aside," he said. "I care about this community, and the patients I see, and I want to do my best to help them. As I said before, I think it is actually a calling to be a doctor, and I love that I am doing this."
