Patient Reviews

September 10, 2021
Dr. Escobedo is always very professional and friendly. He listens to my concerns and points out all the pros and cons of my available treatment options. He always makes me feel at ease and he makes me feel like I'm having a conversation with a friend rather than being at the "doctor's office".
September 07, 2021
No one greeted me or asked if I have any Covid symptoms. Too busy airing her problems she has at home. (The gal at medicine management did attend to those patients.) Please don't let this fire gal that was suppose to greet me. Thank you.
September 03, 2021
My father was late. Do you do to like stress issues? Cuz he's going to have surgery and then I guess the doctor only saw him for like less than 5 minutes. So hopefully you guys don't feel the insurance. His insurance. Thank you.
August 31, 2021
I want to say that one size doesn't fit all. That when the a doctor wants you to do what they say because they assessed that it was safe for him and his family doesn't meant it's safe for me and mine. If you want to push something on me then you and your organization should be prepared to take responsibility for the outcome of following your recommendation. If you're not prepared to do that then listen to the patient and let them choose what they think is best for their health. Shame on you to not stand up for the right of people to make their choices for their health.
August 30, 2021
The doctor is not very thorough and is not very personable. He listened, but did not provide much feedback. and then, left without really saying, goodbye or letting me know that the visit was over.

Love the virtual appointment for certain types of issues. First time I had a virtual appointment and it was SO convenient. Some things really have to be in person, but this was not true of this circumstance & I was able to see a doc so much sooner and start treatment ASAP.
May 21, 2021
Thank you
May 18, 2021
I think that before he leaves the patient he should have asked me, is there anything else that I can help you with and he did not. So that's what I'm recommending and I think he went a little too fast I wanted to maybe spend a little bit more time with him, but that's not the impression he gave me and I'm sorry about that.
