What People Say About Dr. Hermann Escobar, DO

I have been a patient of Dr. Escobar since he was at Patient's First many years ago. I am sorry to say that the level of care and concern for his patients has drastically decreased. These positive reviews are from those days when he was at another location. His current affiliation is with NYU. He doesn't call anymore to discuss your results from your test. He just put me on medicine without explaining anything via NYU online website. I am very disappointed.

Dr. Escobar is just an amazing doctor! He is a great listener and answered all my 100 health questions I had. :) I really like that he didn't rush my visit, and took time. Dr. Escobar was detailed with in examination. He explained me everything I needed to know and recommended a great specialist for further tests. I'm really happy I've found him. His stuff was also very friendly and wonderful. Highly recommended!

Dr. Escobar was my doctor for about 6 years while I lived in New York. I now live in Colorado but I have to say Dr. Escobar is absolutely irreplaceable. He always took the time to understand my concerns & when I told him I was getting headaches, he insisted I get an MRI. which I ignored. He called me at home and insisted I go in for the MRI. I went and they found I had a brain bleed. If not for him I would probably have died. God Bless Dr. Hermann Escobar.

Although I live in Colorado for 3 years now Dr. Escobar treated me for about 6 years when I lived in New York. I don't think I will ever get the wonderful care that I received from Dr. Escobar. He always took the time to understand what was going on with me and made me feel better even on my worst days. It was always comforting to know that I had his support. His assistant Raquel was always friendly and efficient. We need more medical professionals like Dr. Hermann Escobar.
