Patient, Calm, Caring and Knowledable are just a few words that describe Paola. It’s obvious Paola’s calling and mission in life is helping women with the journey of motherhood. Her passion and dedication to knowledge and true care of a pregnant and laboring woman is second to none. I felt empowered, safe, and listened to. Her holistic approach is exactly what I was needing and wanting during my whole pregnancy, especially my labor and delivery. I highly recommend her.

This is my 2nd time putting up a review THIS DOCTOR IS TERRIBLE!! she used me like a science experiment and racially profiled me testing me for something without my knowledge (twice) NEVER telling me which BY LAW she was supposed to inform me. Causing tremendous damage towards me and my family also causing my postpartum to activate which I’ve never been through b4 and I have 4 children. I MADE A HUGE MISTAKE TRUSTING DR. ESCOBAR!!

My main issue with this midwife is her claim to be holistic when she is not at all. When i finally changed my OB i was in my 13th week. my new Dr. Had to rush my genetic testing because it should have been done between my 11th and 13th week. Paola never even mentioned it to me. I almost missed the mark or the procedure would have been much more of a risk for my child. Terrible experience for me. Sorry i went there.

Recommend to contact a real doctor, this midwife will try to extend the labor as much she can to avoid calling in an MD for medical assistance in order to avoid splitting the fees, regardless of the medical risk to you or your newborn child. I overheard her being scolded by the MD in my case saying "you must stop doing this". Very bad and scary experience.

Literally the worst Gyno I have ever been to. Always atleast an hour wait EVERY single time, they're rude, and make everything a longer process than it should be.
