How was your experience with the doctor?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!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Espinoza spent time listened to my father's concerns during his appointment. Together they were able to develop a plan of care. Dr. Espinoza makes every attempt to Follow up with my father and to keep us informed of any results. As, well, the office staff is very professional and goes the extra mile to help his patients. There is one staff member in particular that went above and beyond trying to help my father, her name is Violet. She made many calls to other facilities trying to find medication samples that my father desperately needed. For that, we are very grateful.

How was your experience with the doctor?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. As a bonus, their new location now has the capability to draw blood for testing, saving us a trip to a lab. My father was very pleased of how this visit turned out.

How was your experience with the doctor?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. There was a long wait to notify my family. My family was not informed that I was going into procedure and it was not until I was leaving that they were called back. Dr. Espinoza and nursing staff did a wonderful job with the patient care, but need to better communicate with the family members of the overall process. Overall the visit was pleasant and will return if needed. Dr. Espinoza, Thank you for a great job!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Espinoza is one of the very best doctors I've ever had!! Bring all of your questions, because he will discuss and answer everything! And, he cares about his patients - he's not one of those doctors that walks into the room, stays about 2 minutes or less, and can't get out of that room fast enough! He is extremely thorough! I will never change to another Gastroenterologist! I think he's the best and I highly recommend him!

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my third visit to see Dr. Espinoza and he is absolutely a wonderful and professional doctor. I became a patient of his about 6 months ago and he has been monitoring some lab work on me. I truly feel comfortable and confident with his medical advice and recommendations. He is very thorough (takes time to explain it all and answer questions) and has great bedside manner. I would absolutely refer my family and friends to him. His nurse, as well as the other staff members that I have interacted with are very friendly and helpful too.
