Very personable.
  Overall Patient Rating - August 2020
Dr. Esparza is extremely caring and knowledgeable and takes a very thoughtful and comprehensive approach to his patients. I would recommend him to my family and best friends (and I have!) and completely trust him as my care provider. He is a great listener and is so patient to answer all of my questions. I always feel like he will "give it to me straight" and truly cares! :)

This was suppose to be like an annual checkup but he waited for me to tell him a concern, then he would dismiss and start to get up to leave like his pants were on fire. We went through this 4 more times before I just gave up and decided I would look for another doctor. This was my first visit and the impression he left was not a good one.
  Overall Patient Rating - August 2020
Dr. Esparza was professional and quick to diagnose and treat me. I trust his expertise far more than other dermatologists I have seen in the past.

The care provider was fine.
  Overall Patient Rating - April 2020
Dr. Esperanza listened to my concerns, viewed the irritated area, asked many questions about a previous diagnosis and treatments. We talked treatment and I started that treatment by that afternoon.

  Overall Patient Rating - December 2019
He is dismissive & condescending when asked simple questions - I had the same experience w/him several years ago chose to go elsewhere because of it. Come this time as he was the only provider in my plan.
