Dr Escobedo is a great Dr. but he rushes through his visits. Don't be late or else this will be less time with him. He gives you about 10 min of his time. I feel a good Dr. doesn't rush through his visits with his patients but takes his time to really listen and handle all their matters.

Doctor was too rushed and left the room before I could ask all my questions. He just ran out to the other patient before I could ask anything. Needs to slow down and book less patients if there is no time.

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.

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.

he is a great 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
