We had a 4:00 pm appointment and at 5:10 pm had still not seen Dr. Escobar. As we were angrily walking out the door to leave, a random nurse appeared and asked us to stay. The doctor suddenly appeared and we agreed to stay for a quick appointment. Finishing up at 5:40 pm. My son has special needs, was in a sling with a broken arm, needed to eat dinner, and no one ever bothered to pop in to tell us about the delay or check on us at all. It was a very frustrating day.
He is a wonderful Dr that takes the time with you and can understand him very well. He is good with making my child feel comfortable too and Dr office can be stressful for kids.
Sometimes there can be a long wait time but this visit everything went very smoothly and stayed mostly on time. Dr. Escobar is a very pleasant knowledgeable and kind physician and he was very good with my child.
Dr. Escobar and his staff are wonderful! I would highly recommend!
Dr. Escobar is amazing. He incorporates excellent clinical acumen with rarely achieved level of bedside manner.
Dr. Escobar and Nurse Peggy are wonderful
The doctor was very thorough in his exam. He asked a lot of questions and at the end he answered my questions I had for him.
Have always been pleased with my child's visits with Dr. Escobar.....love how he explains everything in ways my child and I can understand. also respect the fact that if we ask a question out of his field of knowledge, he admits that its not something he can answer. In my opinion, that makes for a great Doctor!
DR ESCOBAR IS ALWAYS EXCELLENT WITH OUR SON. HE IS ALWAYS WILLING TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS AND HELP IN ANYWAY THAT HE CAN.
Dr. Escobar is absolutely amazing. He is on time, never a long wait, he is through, he is kind...he goes through my daughter's medical history and current state in detail and answers any questions we may have. I would recommend him to anyone I know and strangers as well. We are so happy we found Dr. Escobar!
Dr. Escobar was very detailed, patient, actively Enquiry got and listening to me, and explaining his thoughts. I was very satisfied with his approach and know that my son is being cared for by the right doctor.
Dr. Escobar was excellent and we plan on sticking with him for the future
Dr Escobar made every effort to make our daughter feel comfortable. He was genuine & explained everything to us
Dr. Escobar is top notch. He is very kind and speaks to the child on their level.
very clear explanations to all of our questions, heard and responded to all of my concerns, nice balance of humor and seriousness
very happy with the visit and Dr. Escobar
Dr. Escobar is, by far, the best doctor I've ever seen. He is respectful both to me and my son. He knows how to deal with kids. He listens and is attentive. A+
the doctor seems has many experience on this area. I have confidence for him.
Dr. Escobar is fantastic! The only issue is the wait time. Every time we go for an appointment, we are there for at least two hours. I know it is difficult because he wants to give every patient the attention they need, and there is such a long wait list to see him. He is a great doctor!
Many of the questions that are asked as part of this survey do not apply to my appt. I see Dr. Escobar every three months for routine care. I have been seeing him for nearly a decade. I couldn't ask for a better Dr.
We waited over an hour to be seen, which was not satisfactory at all. Then we had to have bloodwork done for our daughter, and she needed an b-day, so we were there for 2.5 hours in total, which was way too much, & would've been much less had we not had to wait almost an hour & a half for her dr to see her initially.
Alway a great office visit with Dr. Escobar and staff.
Dr. Escobar is a wonderful person and a great doctor. We love him.
He was very good with kids. He answered all of my sons questions explained things in a way he could understand. fabulous doctor
Excellent rapport established with my child quickly! Appreciated clinical expertise and clear communication of plan.
Dr. Escobar is a great doctor. Always takes time, listens, & is helpful.
This was our first visit with Dr Escobar and I am very pleased. He took his time and made sure we understood everything

Dr Escobar always knowledgeable
He is always so nice! He really listens to what I have to say.
Dr. escabor is excellent....very personable which is something that children need.
excellent and thorough physician
We were unable to see Dr Escobar at this visit, but Dr Lwey Weiss stepped in and took wonderful care of us. She was very attentive and apologetic due to the check in problems we had.
He is an awesome doctor .
Dr Escobar is exceptional. My child and I have been given great care and attention by him.
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.
Excellent, thoughtful physician providing very individualized care.
Dr Escobar and his nurse were wonderful to my son.
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 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!
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!!
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
He is very good
They felt more comfortable with this doctor and said he was very thoughtful and caring.
Dr Escobar is a wonderful Dr. would not change anything
Dr. Escobar is friendly and efficient with his time, even adding little extras in for fun like his snapping tricks.
Dr Escobar was very nice and thorough with my son's visit. He answered all of our questions.
Nurse Peggy and Dr. Escobar are wonderful.
