wonderful bedside manner
we were not seen for almost 2 hrs after the scheduled time. it would be nice to be informed of this when providers are running really behind. it was around lunch time (scheduled time 11 seen right before 1). I would have taken my daughter to get something to eat if I would have know it would be a long wait because she was really hungry since she normally eats around 12-1230
best provider at children's will recommend to family and friends!
Dr. Escobar is an excellent physician. He takes the time to listen and explain things in a way that we can understand. He is very knowledgeable and has been able to help my son grow.
I was very happy with the experience. The staff and doctor were excellent!
He was great with my son, made him feel comfortable.
Dr Escobar and his nurse were wonderful to my son.
Excellent, thoughtful physician providing very individualized care.
I like how the doctor talks to my daughter and talks to where she can understand what's going on. He talks to her not us parents and thats how it should be. Ask her questions and ask if her if she has any questions. One of the best doctors we have had.
Dr. Escobar has been exceptional in treating my son.
Dr. Escobar is always terrific with our family. Wonderful provider. Wish we could all see him for all medical needs.
He is a very caring and attentive doctor
my son loves Dr Escobar. I'm so glad he is my sons endocrinologist!
Even though we may wait to be seen by Dr. Escobar, I feel like he spends quality time with us while we are there and fully answers all of our questions.
Dr. Escobar is the best doctor we've ever had in the 10 years that my son has been getting medical care for type 1 diabetes. Dr. Escobar is caring, kind, patient, informative and is very good with my son. Seriously, he's a perfect doctor, we're blessed to have him.
Very nice person and wonderful and caring doctor.
Dr. Escobar is wonderful - I'm thankful for having him during our process of investigating my child's diagnosis.
It was a good experience.
I would have loved to have had this doctor for my son!! he was wonderful and so informative!
Dr Escobar also treated my older son, he remembers my children by name and my husband. He is always upbeat and interested in how his patients are doing.
Dr Escobar was excellent with my son. he spent a good deal of time with us.
Didn't see the doctor till 40 minutes after our appointment time. Otherwise, he had a wonderful bedside manor.
the doctor and his pupil were absolutely amazing with my son. he normally does not like the doctor office but he did great with him and me as well. he was patient and listened to me. he did every possible test up to this point for my son and i am totally grateful to of met him. thank you so much.
Dr. Escobar goes so far beyond what I have been conditioned to expect from prior interactions with physicians, that I honestly have trouble coming up with words to describe how grateful I am that he is in practice, here in Pittsburgh, and that somehow I found my way to him and was able to get the care my son needed. He has a terrific bedside manner. He is knowledgeable. He is open to input and information. He takes the time to listen, and to educate. He truly cares. It turns out that this combination of characteristics is far rarer among pediatric physicians than I ever would have thought three years ago. He has brought hope to my family.
dr Escobar is BY FAR the most compassionate, helpful doctor we have worked with. He has a bedside manor and ability to deal with my teenage daughter is amazing. There is no other doctor I would want for my daughters care....he is simply THE BEST!!!
My daughter is approaching puberty, thus she needed her breasts and pubis examined. That can be extremely awkward, especially at her age, but the provider did a great job making the experience comfortable and easy. I was very impressed!!
My child has been seeing this provider since 3 yrs of age. She will be coming up on the allotted years she will be able to spend with him due to her age (definitely not by choice). Dr. Escobar or Dr. Tweetybird (as my daughter calls him) has raised the bar in healthcare. I could not ask for a better provider. It truly is going to be a sad moment one her last visit. Dr. Escobar has been a true blessing for my child. I would to thank him and Childrens Hospital of Pittsburgh for provided such excellent care to my daughter over all these years. Giving the Endocrogly Dept. @ this hospital a five (5) star rating would most definetly be an understatement. Thank you Dr. Escobar and team!
Was very pleased with Dr. Eskobar..........he did not rush our apt, listened and answered all our questions and concerns. Again pleased with my childs care

Karen - diabetic educator and Dr. Escobar are amazing. it's difficult enough having a child with T1D, but they are so kind and caring and attentive to all of our needs and questions. I couldn't ask for a better or more amazing team - thank you to them!!
dr. Escobar was an amazing provider and explained things so that my daughter could understand
Dr. Escobar is the most detailed doctor we see, by far. He comes in the room prepared with notes from our previous appointment so we aren't starting from scratch each time. He is detailed and talks to my daughter directly to get her opinion as well. We enjoy our visits with him. I am also thankful he travels to Beaver County.
They show a sincere concern and give me the attention and time needed and answer all questions I have.
Dr. Oscar Escobar has been my daughters physician for 12-13 years at Childrens Hospital. He is absolutely wonderdul. He has an unbelievable connection with my child. I could not be more pleased with him. Her Allan results were called to me same day as appointment the doctor called med directly. Thank you Dr. Escobar!
We drive almost 2 hours to see Dr. Escobar regarding my child's health care needs. That alone should be enough to know we respect and feel confident with Dr. Escobar and his staff
Dr Escobar is amazing! I wish he could be my child's only care provider.

always enjoy are appointed with Dr. Escobar and staff.
I wish every doctor could have Dr Escobar's bed side manner! He is so kind and compassionate!
we visit the diabetes clinic every 3 months. the visits are quite long with quite a bit of waiting--we wait in the waiting room sometimes close to an hour. we wait in between seeing the technician, nurse educator, and physician or PA. each visit takes almost 2 hours. while we do appreciate the service provided by the clinic, the time involved is significantly too long compared to the time that is spent treating my child. as a result he misses at least three hours of school time for each visit.
