What People Say About Dr. Catalina Escobar, MD

Dr. Escobar has been my primary doctor for approximately 2 years. Prior to her, my previous doctor never had any type of follow-up on tests, results or anything to express concerns when my blood pressure continued to elevate. Dr. Escobar on the other hand, continuously monitors my tests, encouraged me to enroll in the diabetes educational class even though I'm only pre-diabetes and most importantly, I feel comfortable speaking with her regarding personal health-related issues.

I have never had such a negative experience with any Dr like I have with Dr CATALINA ESCOBAR MD. She never refilled my medicine, one time it took a month to get her to refill. She also took it upon herself to body shame me for having a pump put in, that I've had for 4 years, several specialist felt it was my last option, by the time I left, she literally had me SOBBING. Saying that SHE would never have such a thing in HER body. I had to fight every month for my refills. She is an over paid bully

This doctor is the worse doctor my mom has had. Treated my mother like a piece of trash. Did not care for her health concerns AT ALL. She should actually practice what she preaches. Her biography says " I discovered real love for helping people and fell in love with the human side of medicine." REALLY???? Well if that is the case you should start listening to your patients and care a little for them vs. making them feel belittled.
