Good family practice
March 20, 2019
I was early for my appointment and they saw me early. So nice to be treated like a person and not feel rushed. Dr. Escobedo gave me options for my problem and helped talk me through what would be best for me. Most importantly, he shook my hand when he first entered the room. Just don't see that anymore.

February 26, 2019
Dr Escobedo was very patient and listened but also provided good information about my condition and since one of my medical concerns he was not confident about the answer so consulted with an OB/GYN (since it was a female problem). He also gave positive feedback which was pleasing to hear vs negative feedback from my previous provider doctor.

February 20, 2019
Dr Escobedo was prompt and accurate with my lab results. He answered my ?'s and made suggestions to help my intake of vitamins....He is caring and sincere.
February 19, 2019
I like the relaxed atmosphere in the waiting room and enjoy the calm attitudes from the office staff as well. I have been going to an old school doctor for years now where they right down everything on paper files and give you a paper receipt for your co-pay when finished. It's such a change of scenery with everything on computer today. I'm glad I made this change.
February 19, 2019
He was okay... Appeared to be a little rushed... First thing out of his mouth was he's a stickler to a tight schedule! He needs to relax a bit... Thx

I very much appreciate his bed side manner ! He informs you, but still respects your decisions. Dr Escobedo has been one of the very few doctors that I feel very comfortable with. I have encouraged my husband to change over to Dr. Escobedo, we both feel that he would understand my husband needs. He is now in the process of changing. I am very happy with Dr. I am extremely happy with Dr. Escobedo. I think he has excellent bedside manner! So much so that I have encouraged my husband to change his primary to Dr. Escobedo.
