Dr. Espiritu knew he wanted to be a primary care physician from a young age. Frequently ill as a child growing up in the Philippines, he found visits with the family doctor to be comforting. Volunteering in hospitals solidified the decision to pursue medicine for Dr. Espiritu who says, “I enjoy the diversity and unpredictability of primary care. I also enjoy interacting with the variety of people I meet from the happy or crying infant to the elderly and everybody else in between.”  When not treating patients, he enjoys landscape photography, often hiking to canyons and rivers “just to get a good shot.”

Dr. Espiritu is kind, and listens. Their staff booked my appointment at a desired time a lot. But they are constantly late with their appointments due to over booking.
