Dr. Espinar is a great doctor but her receptionist is a complete ding dong when it comes to answering questions. She is rude and highly unprofessional. She is so childish she refused to have the doctor call us back regarding anX-ray result. I am shocked that Dr. Espinar hired someone like her. So because of this receptionist, I will not be returning. I shouldn’t have to be treated with disrespect. Your better off looking elsewhere where you will be treated better with respect

I really loved my visit! I haven’t had a checkup and blood work for about 13 years, and none of my friends could recommend a good doctor, only one friend of mine sent me to this app and I choose Dr.Espinar solely based on honest patient reviews. I did not regret it. She was very nice, very friendly, very thorough, went out of her way to help me and get me answers, she also was patient with me and took her time to take me through everything. She did more than I expected, and she made me feel very comfortable. She and her staff was very helpful, I felt like I know them for a long time. It didn’t feel like I was there the first time. I can highly recommend her!

I went in today for a throat infection, since I had a fever and other symptoms a week and a half ago. She prescribed some meds for the throat infection, as well as a referral to see a GI. She isvery empathetic, and the wait to see her wasn't long at all. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new PCP, who is accepting new patients.

I did not have to wait long at all. I came in with a complaint of chronic halitosis and other symptoms, and the doctor is so very empathetic, and understanding. She decided to try the antibiotics and other medications to seeif it will work. I will be changing my diet as well... overall my visit was satisfactory. Her bedside manner as well as the professionalism of the staff was superb. I will be returning in two weeks to see if the treatment worked.

Where do I begin? I was seen immediately upon arrival and received a diagnosis within 25 minutes. Dr. Espinar is amazing. I have never felt more comfortable with a doctor before in my life. She spoke to me in terms Icould understand, and actually listened to me and my concerns. She is extremely professional and explained every single detail of treatment to me. She took her time and made sure I understood my health needs. Dr. Espinar is the most caring and kind physician I have ever encountered. I absolutely adore her!
