Dr. Escobar and diabetes educator Karen are both wonderful. They provide exceptional 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!

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.
The Doctor was very good with my son and seemed very knowledgeable about his history and care.
Dr. Oscar Escobar is OUTSTANDING. He's patient, kind, has a sense of humor, a GREAT relationship with parents. He is kind to the children and involves them in their care. He is THOROUGH. I respect him and trust him.
was there at 2, 1 hour before visit at 3 and never saw the dr until almost 5. After visiting with dr is when he said my son needed to do blood work. After being there almost 4 hrs, we had enough and would do the bloodwork another day/another place.
