Karen - diabetic educator and Dr. Escobar are amazing. it's difficult enough having a child with T1D, but they are so kind and caring and attentive to all of our needs and questions. I couldn't ask for a better or more amazing team - thank you to them!!

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE

December 22, 2016

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.
