Dr. Escobar is the most detailed doctor we see, by far. He comes in the room prepared with notes from our previous appointment so we aren't starting from scratch each time. He is detailed and talks to my daughter directly to get her opinion as well. We enjoy our visits with him. I am also thankful he travels to Beaver County.

They show a sincere concern and give me the attention and time needed and answer all questions I have.

Dr. Oscar Escobar has been my daughters physician for 12-13 years at Childrens Hospital. He is absolutely wonderdul. He has an unbelievable connection with my child. I could not be more pleased with him. Her Allan results were called to me same day as appointment the doctor called med directly. Thank you Dr. Escobar!
