I'm so impressed with the very short wait time. I've been there twice and have waited less than 10 minutes each time. They have a very fluid process. The nurses are very personable. Dr Espinoza called me back within 5 minutes of me calling his after hours answering service. Called in a script for me. Then called me back at 7:00 am to check on me. Exceptional Service! This is the best Dr experience I've ever had!

She made many calls to other facilities trying to find medication samples that my father desperately needed. For that, we are very grateful.
The new location is great. Lots of light and more open space. Also, there seems to be more exam rooms. The staff was very friendly and professional. The doctor is bilingual [English-Spanish] and communicated directly with the patient, my father, making it easier for him to understand the instructions.

The front office were very friendly, as well as the pre-admission nurse. The waiting area was small, but was informed by staff that there was possible plans of a new location and would allow more space. This is definitely not a place for large families.

He was very professional. Very clean cut and did not degrade my daughter and I because we are not rich. In the past a Dr by the name of Garza degraded my husband and me my husband died of cancer. I had hepatitis C at one time but I was cured and he told my husband with out even waiting on a response I don't see patients with hepatitis. My husband was so upset. I told him not to worry. We will be okay. As for Dr . Espinoza he deserves a raise and 2 dumbs up =)

Dr. Espinoza's professionalism continues to be the ultimate best. From his well groomed apperance, welcoming greeting, listening to his patient explain the issue/ simptons, clearly explaining what he suspects might be causing the patients physical problem, recommending whatever procedure is required, his farewell greeting and getting the procedure scheduled by his staff before his patient leaves the building. He is absolutely a great physician. My congratulations to him and his office staff for their outstanding professionalism.
My visit with Dr. Espinoza, was a pleasant one. I was taken by his "bedside manners"! The staff was courteous and professional.
Dr Espinoza was courteous and respectful of my questions. He provided me the information from my previous procedure for review and took time to tell me how it is meaningful to my appointment today and future health decision.
Very thorough and reassuring.
I appreciated Dr. Espinoza's information very much. This was a second opinion for me and he listened and gave me some very good information that I had not received from another Doctor. The Staff members (the Lady at the front desk and his Nurse) were very professional and friendly...wish I remembered their names. I want to say that the lady at the front desk was a Mrs. Lopez (?) and I don't remember the Nurses name, but she had beautiful curly red hair....sorry, I don't remember their names. I had a very pleasant and grateful experience. Thank you Sincerely, Mary

This follow-up visit went as I expected. Dr. Espinoza explained the results of my tests and referred me to a specialist for further treatment.
As always he is of the best in his field of medication.
very informative and seemed willing to help figure out whats going on with my situation
Very knowledgeable. The doctor explained things well and in layman terms. He stayed until all questions were answered. Each staff member I encountered was friendly, helpful, and personable. (good natured) I did encounter a minor problem. I was sent forms to fill out and return, however, they did not arrive in time to be mailed back and be received before my appointment. They were postmarked well after they were supposedly mailed. To make matters worse, they were in Spanish. I do not speak Spanish. I found this irritating. I Abhor filling out forms especially when the same information is requested more than once.
Dr Espinoza always handles my concerns and questions with compassion. He develops and implements a medical plan to address my symptoms. I feel well-taken care of under his medical guidance.
Dr Espinosa is always great. I have been a patient of his for nearly three years now and he always asks about my family when he is done assessing my medical needs. And for me that says a lot about the type of doctor he is.
It was my mothers Appointment, but I was present and pleased with the results. He spoke to her in Spanish and was very polite!
Dr. Espinoza was on time, clearly explained the needed procedure, and answered my questions. I was pleased with my visit.
he was over caring
He took his time to try and determine the source of mt problems. He offered his plan on how he will determine why i am having my symptoms.
Dr. Espinoza really cares about his patients. He took the time to talk with me and asked me many questions so that he could recommend a treatment.
I think this physician is very professional and knowledgeable, I've seen him as a patient since 2008.
Great staff. Great doctor. Dr. Espinosa has great bed side manor and takes the time to answer all your questions. Staff is very helpful every time I call. Highly recommended.
Quick, efficient and proffisional. I was impressed they had me sign up for their website while I was there to ensure I could access it it. I have never experienced that before but instead I am told about it and then when I go home, I try to access it which I have had problems with. With this office they eliminated that problem which made them a step above others!
Dr. Espinosa is exceptional in patient/physician approach. He listens and explains his advice and conclusions to my problems. He reviews previous notes and is well informed of the background he is treating me for. I highly recommend Dr. Espinosa to anyone in need of his professional services.
I appreciate the short wait in waiting room & in examining room. Very efficient all around he also is a good listener to my concerns and goals.One of the best experiences of any doctor I have.
Very professional and caring.
Was immediately greeted at the reception desk. Sat in the waiting room or 10 minutes. Exam room was neat and clean. Reviewed medications and took vital signs. There was a minor delay because no one could find the lab work, Having worked as a nurse in busy doctors' offices I might suggest preparing the charts or checking the electronic file, the day before, or Friday in my case. It was a good experience. All the personnel were very professional, I did hear a little talking outside the exam room,
