I have a lot of respect and trust of Dr Escobedo
June 07, 2022
Dr. Escobedo was extremely good with my mother and he answered all questions and is helping me work. Through what my mom needs as far as her failing help. So I really appreciated the experience and no complaints whatsoever, okay? Thank you.

It was great! I signed in and was called into the doctor's office within minutes. I saw Dr. Escobedo immediately. We went over my lab test results. I voiced my concerns about issues I had experienced. He was very empathetic and a good listener. He answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.
June 01, 2022
I was very pleased with Dr. Escobedo on my behalf. I did forget something to ask him, but it wasn't his fault, but I'm very confident and I care for him as a position in my family. Doctor. Thank you very much. Goodbye.

The reminder of my appt didn't give me enough time to get my blood work done. The receptionist said she was tired of people giving her a bad time over the Covid masks. Her dad had died of the condition. I told her she needed to get help. Perhaps a counselor.

April 22, 2022
I just would like to tell you that your call center is really awful. That I talked to a man named (name removed), he was aloof and very rude, and he would not schedule me an appointment for 4 months out. I was trying to change my appointment, and was 4 months before I can see. Dr. Escobedo, and when I asked if he could have doctor call me, he said I can tell him but he probably won't. So, I just want you to know that that was very disappointing. Although Dr. Escobedo's office called me back and I did get it to reschedule, and I did see him in a timely manner. So, thank you. Bye.
April 22, 2022
Thorough and comprehensive

This is (PHI removed). And my visit to Dr. Escobedo's office was fantastic. I've known him for quite a long time and would recommend him to anyone. He is superb, great, right to the point, and very cordial. Thank you very much.
April 19, 2022
I arrived approximately 15 minutes early to my appointment and was astonished that I was seen immediately even by Dr. Escobedo. His assistant was super nice as well!!!
April 13, 2022
Dr. Escobedo explains things in layman's terms and shows concern for your health and well being
April 13, 2022
The FOUR month wait between appointments is extensive and a bit unreasonable.
April 12, 2022

March 30, 2022
I feel very happy and blessed with the fact that Dr. Escobedo didn't waste any time with referring me to specialist that detected my pancreatic cancer. And I'm scheduled to start chemo therapy therapy soon, but I need to... find... I... would like to go to... to UC Irvine, where my doctor. the pancreatic surgeon, that removed cancer for me, where the oncologist is there that she referred me to. And my insurance has denied me saying that... That I'm not eligible, but I really would like to speak to somebody about that. Thank you.
March 29, 2022
I just would want for him to go over my blood work. Explaining why it might be high and what I should try doing to help to bring down that number. I enjoyed that he took the time to show me how to look up websites for stretching exercising, and showed me how to do some.
March 29, 2022

March 04, 2022
Dr Antonio Escobedo is very profecional he is Great ... Job Well Done... Five Stars...
March 02, 2022
Dr. Escobedo is an excellent doctor. Explains things clearly and ready to listen to questions and concerns. He is the most on time with appointments, he should receive recognition for being on time for appointments.
March 02, 2022
Dr. Escobedo is a fine physician overall, however, on this occasion his staff were not properly informed on my particular medical information and delayed my care without cause. Also, I didn't agree with the assessment of my depression symptoms as charted by Dr. Escobedo whereas he never asked me or informed me about seeking medical attention within a clinical setting if I was "SI/HI" ie suicidal/homicidal ideations. That was never addressed whatsoever in our conversation and I was very taken aback by that language. I want my depression anxiety and emotional disabilities documented by my health care providers, however, I would appreciate it if that was done so within the context of our contemporaneous accurate discussions and not solely on the physician's determination of the interaction. This is my right as a patient. Thank you.
March 01, 2022
Please keep these good doctors on staff, and remove the mask mandate as soon as possible (PHI removed)

January 21, 2022
Dr. Escobedo is a cordial, friendly and competent person. We do not know why he left with the intention of returning and did not return. We probably didn't quite understand your explanation. We hope that at the next appointment we can clarify what could have been left in suspense. Thanks

Hi, I'm [PHI removed] and I just want to tell you that I, Doctor Escobedo, everything was very good, but (unreadable) an orthopedist and (unreadable) but that's going to be fixed, it's very good everything, thanks.
December 27, 2021
My first visit, the Doctor was very easy to talk to. I was very impressed with him and am looking forward to a long term relationship.
December 27, 2021
Dr took the time to explain things to me.
December 22, 2021
Everything was fine. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Being it was my first time meeting this doctor, I wish he would have asked me more of my personal life, like what I do for a living, how long, what did I do before for a living, Any history with family with the same issues I went in for, how long I've been wearing glasses, has it gotten worst, any mental issues, how long have I been smoking. I just thought being my first time visiting this office the doctor would like to know a little about his patients.
December 22, 2021
I'm optimistic about my medical relationship with Dr. E.
December 22, 2021
Always a pleasure going to the see my doctor

December 21, 2021
It was my first visit with the doctor & I'm really happy!!!
December 20, 2021
Dr Escobedo is very Kind and I have the utmost confident in him. Listens and recommends what I need to help with the issue at hand. [PHI removed]
December 20, 2021
Dr. Escobedo is a personable and polite dr. I would recommend that he spend less time looking at computer and asking me if I have any medical health concerns or questions . He needs to explain why he requests labs, and explain the results in a thorough way. Also, he is requesting less lab tests and he does not explain why. Also, my previous doctor would see me every 3 months , and I see dr. Escobedo every 5 months. I have prediabetes, high blood pressure, major depression and anxiety disorder: dr. Escobedo should discuss those medical health problems with me, and ask how I am feeling. I believe he has the ability to be a more informative and compassionate dr.
December 15, 2021
Very professional and interested in the patients care.
December 14, 2021
I was very pleased with my visit with Dr. Escobedo. Not just because of the care I got but also because my brother took me to this appointment and he was very impressed from the time I checked in all the way to when I saw the doctor. I was happy that I was able to show a family member the type of care I have told them I receive. It was enough to make him look into his own insurance to see if he can change doctors. Thank you to Dr. Escobedo and staff.
December 07, 2021

December 03, 2021
This was my very first visit with Dr. Escobedo after having spent years with another primary care physician. I was extremely pleased with him. I went for a physical and he took time to explain but more importantly to listen to what I had to say. He took quick action to address the areas of concern to me. I would highly recommend him at this very early point of our relationship. He appears to be a very effective and communicative physician.
