Dr. Escobar is very responsive, professional, and caring. He thoroughly reviews my child's history and is very thoughtful in his communication. He takes as much time as needed to answer questions.

November 01, 2016

Dr. Escobar was very thorough and covered all of my concerns and gave us ample time and never rushed. He was very caring towards my son. I was impressed with his professionalism and that he could also be personable.

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.

The Doctor was very good with my son and seemed very knowledgeable about his history and care.

July 20, 2016

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.
