Iris graduated from Pace University in Pleasantville, New York, with a degree in Criminal Justice and a Minor in Law. After graduation, she worked as a senior underwriter for numerous lending companies. Once she graduated from her fellowship program, she quickly changed her focus to raising their three beautiful children and helping Dr. Espinoza become a solo practitioner. Having no medical experience, she taught herself electronic medical billing, coding, hospital credentialing, and licensing. She handled all insurance company authorizations and accounts receivables. Anything that was needed, she figured it out on her own. She has excellent communication skills, helps the doctor in business negotiations, and is a fearless public speaker. Iris is the doctor's confidante and personal watchdog always protecting the best interests of the practice and its many happy patients.
Currently, she is still a full-time mother, helps in handling the day-to-day operations of the office, and oversees all our social media outputs. To say she is the practice manager is not enough because she is and always will be more than that. She is our counsel, financial advisor, creative genius, disciplinarian, and law enforcer. She enjoys fine art, history, and photography. Iris loves Broadway shows, dancing and is always the life of the party.
