Excellent Surgeon! Very thorough in explaining procedure. Stopped in before surgery to see if any last questions or concerns. Very easy to visit with. McCook should be proud to have Dr. Eskildsen, and the great surgical team of nurses!

Did not meet with us before or after surgery. A week later when I went in to get the results that I had breast cancer, he never even checked the biopsy site.
