After many years working as a Emergency Room physician, Dr. Espinel realized that there is a need to provide better and more efficient care to patients. He understands that he is able to provide many of the same services in an Urgent Care setting at ten times less than what it would cost in an emergency room and be able to see walk-in patients within 15 to 45 minutes as opposed to an emergency room where waiting times are usually more than two hours. He is proud to bring his experience and feels privileged to be able to serve the Parrish, Ellenton, Bradenton, Palmetto, Lakewood Ranch, Sarasota, Sun City communities and all other surrounding areas at his new facility, PrimeHealth Urgent Care. He and his staff are committed to providing the most compassionate and quality care to people of all ages.
Dr. Espinel has lived in the Bradenton area since 2013 and is married to Sonia Espinel. They have three boys, Alfonso, Andrés and Sebastian.
Practice Objective: To keep our patients out of the Emergency Room by providing the most affordable, highest quality and efficient healthcare.
Practice Philosophy: “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.”
