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.

Dr took the time to explain things to me.

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.

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.

Very professional and interested in the patients care.

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 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.
