Dr Escobar also treated my older son, he remembers my children by name and my husband. He is always upbeat and interested in how his patients are doing.

Didn't see the doctor till 40 minutes after our appointment time. Otherwise, he had a wonderful bedside manor.

the doctor and his pupil were absolutely amazing with my son. he normally does not like the doctor office but he did great with him and me as well. he was patient and listened to me. he did every possible test up to this point for my son and i am totally grateful to of met him. thank you so much.

Dr. Escobar goes so far beyond what I have been conditioned to expect from prior interactions with physicians, that I honestly have trouble coming up with words to describe how grateful I am that he is in practice, here in Pittsburgh, and that somehow I found my way to him and was able to get the care my son needed. He has a terrific bedside manner. He is knowledgeable. He is open to input and information. He takes the time to listen, and to educate. He truly cares. It turns out that this combination of characteristics is far rarer among pediatric physicians than I ever would have thought three years ago. He has brought hope to my family.

dr Escobar is BY FAR the most compassionate, helpful doctor we have worked with. He has a bedside manor and ability to deal with my teenage daughter is amazing. There is no other doctor I would want for my daughters care....he is simply THE BEST!!!

My child has been seeing this provider since 3 yrs of age. She will be coming up on the allotted years she will be able to spend with him due to her age (definitely not by choice). Dr. Escobar or Dr. Tweetybird (as my daughter calls him) has raised the bar in healthcare. I could not ask for a better provider. It truly is going to be a sad moment one her last visit. Dr. Escobar has been a true blessing for my child. I would to thank him and Childrens Hospital of Pittsburgh for provided such excellent care to my daughter over all these years. Giving the Endocrogly Dept. @ this hospital a five (5) star rating would most definetly be an understatement. Thank you Dr. Escobar and team!

My daughter is approaching puberty, thus she needed her breasts and pubis examined. That can be extremely awkward, especially at her age, but the provider did a great job making the experience comfortable and easy. I was very impressed!!
