Euless, TX |
In 2015, Dr Escobar did a triple bypass and his care was excellent so, when a PET scan revealed a small "highly likely" malignant growth on my lung, I had him remove it. Once again his care was excellent. Added to the good care, is a congenial personality and it's obvious that he genuinely cares about his patients.

Recently, Dr. Jose Escobar removed my upper left lung lobe. During my 5 days in the hospital, he came in several times a day to see how I was progressing. His bedside manner was great and he made me feel comfortable. I highly recommend him for his expertise and knowledge.
