I first met Dr. Escobar in 2009 when I needed emergency heart bypass surgery. He has kept close watch on me since then, and 2 weeks ago he performed lung surgery for me. I can't say enough about his qualifications, expertise and bedside manner, except that I have TOTAL confidence in him. Debbie and all the others who support Dr. Escobar have been so helpful to answer any questions and to help in whatever I have needed. Kudo's to Dr. Escobar and Staff!
