Always excellent. His first and only priority is to take excellent care of his patient. There may be a wait time and I always wait with patience, knowing that his every minute is given to taking the time to give his best to his patients. That's worth waiting for. Every visit is as pleasant and professional as it could possibly be. Best ENT in central Texas, hands down.

Dr Eskew is who I was sent to when they found a nodule on my thyroid. He ended up having to remove the thyroid and is also helping with attempting to fix my paralyzed vocal chord. He is absolutely wonderful with his patients. He takes his time with each one and goes over everything that is happening. If you leave your visit with him with any Un sans weed questions, it will be because you didn’t ask the question. He fully explains every step he will be taking and anything he feels needs to be covered with his patient. I HIGHLY recommend Dr Eskew for any ENT issues anyone would have.

Dr Eskew is an amazing, professional, personable, highly skilled doctor and surgeon. He fixed my severely deviated septum, removed a painful bone spur and a cyst recently. I can now breath properly, do not have painful headaches and no longer use the myriads of allergy pills that I have all if my life. Other doctors gave me pills to help me breath, and that was not the issue. His staff are wonderful and caring also. He is the very best, most efficient doctor I have ever been to. I feel better now than I ever have.

Dr. Eskew is an extremely skilled physician and a wonderful person with a great bedside manner. He is the example of what all doctors should be. My only complaint is that he is so popular it is very difficult to get in to see him. If you have an emergency situation, you should have your referring doctor call Dr. Eskew so the main office knows it is an urgent appointment.

I could go on and on about Dr Eskew and how amazing our experience has been with his office staff, his personal knowledge, the surgery itself, and the care we received from him overall, AMAZING! I'm going to say that I'm very critical from the get go with anyone caring for my child, but I would trust Dr Eskew everyday of the week. Thank you for your genuine practice, it's harder to find than you think. L
