Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

We have been seeing Dr Escobar for 11 years now for his NF1. He is honest and to the point with the hard topics but always offering support along the way.

Dr. Escobar was great with my kids. I have twin boys that had appointments with him. My 2 1/2 year old daughter went also. He was great with all of them. I didn’t feel rushed and he came in right away. He answered all my questions.

We went to him for 6 years. Our son has Down Syndrome and autism. He ran CBC blood work every 6 months. The bloodwork always came back "off" and majorly out if range. Dr Escobar said that was normal for a kid with Downs. We didn't only switch Doctors we switched hospitals and come to find out my son has been severely anemic for years. Also they are closely monitoring his CBC as they are always low. He isn't through. He lacks any current knowledge with many conditions. His bedside manner could be improved. Please do research about him before letting your child see him.

Dr. Escobar has treated our children for years and has always gone above and beyond for them. He accurately diagnosed them when another children's hospital in our area had grossly misdiagnosed them. He has been a huge help through the years getting them to the different specialists they have needed, written letters for our childrn's IEP's, called the school himself, made sure they were getting their therapies, supplies, etc.

He is a very upfront doctor, who doesn't sugar coat things but at the same time is very caring and definitely cares a great deal for his patients and their families.

I wish their was a place for negative stars I wish I would have sued him years ago. This "Dr" is the worst!!!! He smacked one of my baby twin girls and said that their is nothing wrong with them I just needed to toughen them up ! He was so wrong they both have genetic disorders and he shouldn't be allowed to continue with his neglectful harmful disrespectful practice and I will call an attorney since my regular drs are now trying to make me go back to him!!!

I have not ever had a bad experience. Dr Escobar listened to all my concerns and was open and honest about everything! He even talked and listened to my kids! And if I didn't understand something he would sit there and explain it to me until I understood. I have recommended him to several friends and family members!
