we visit the diabetes clinic every 3 months. the visits are quite long with quite a bit of waiting--we wait in the waiting room sometimes close to an hour. we wait in between seeing the technician, nurse educator, and physician or PA. each visit takes almost 2 hours. while we do appreciate the service provided by the clinic, the time involved is significantly too long compared to the time that is spent treating my child. as a result he misses at least three hours of school time for each visit.

Dr. Oscar Escobar is OUTSTANDING. He's patient, kind, has a sense of humor, a GREAT relationship with parents. He is kind to the children and involves them in their care. He is THOROUGH. I respect him and trust him.

was there at 2, 1 hour before visit at 3 and never saw the dr until almost 5. After visiting with dr is when he said my son needed to do blood work. After being there almost 4 hrs, we had enough and would do the bloodwork another day/another place.
