Even though we may wait to be seen by Dr. Escobar, I feel like he spends quality time with us while we are there and fully answers all of our questions.

Dr. Escobar is the best doctor we've ever had in the 10 years that my son has been getting medical care for type 1 diabetes. Dr. Escobar is caring, kind, patient, informative and is very good with my son. Seriously, he's a perfect doctor, we're blessed to have him.
