Dr. Eschete Jr is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. He talks to you like you are a friend and takes his time explaining everything to you. He always has a big smile on his face and that tells me he loves what he does. His whole team is full of smiles and they are your biggest cheerleaders it’s the greatest feeling when you leave their office because I know they really care about me and my weight loss journey. I know I will succeed because of them.
