Dr. Esplin did a fantastic job of offering me two options and asking my preference. I clearly had my options but wanted his expert option first, which he was more than willing to share and explain. Thankfully that matched my preference so he was happy to oblige.

I will never go back to this provider. He did not have my medical records and had horrible bedside manner. He just gave general information and did not make me feel taken care of. I left this appointment feeling worse then when I came in.
