Very nice, very knowledgeable and listens to me.
Dr. Esteban was a wonderful and caring doctor who was very helpful in getting the right treatment for my father
Always spends time listening to and answering all my questions which I appreciate.
Dr. Estban was one of the best doctors I have ever received care from. The Nurse Practitioner was sensational as well. I felt listened to. My concerns were heard and everyone was addressed. I truly felt that they informed me, provided education and felt acknowledged as the patient.They were pleasant, professional and gave me 100% as practitioners. Honestly, they were top in there everything! Many could learn a lot from this team and their patient care approach.
Dr. Esteban and staff always makes my visit pleasant and reassuring me about any health concerns. He is a very kind comforting Doctor. Kudos to you Dr. Esteban and staff
Dr Esteban was EXCELLENT. He came to this initial visit very well prepared. He explained everything and talked through what he was and was not concerned about. He explained my liver problem and what he wanted me to do to improve the condition of my liver. He added such a great personality and made it easy for me to communicate with him. He deserves a better score on this questionaire like 10 but it only goes up to 5. Please thank him for the WONDERFUL service he provides to his patients. His honesty, kindness, and respect as well as his knowledge are superior.
Got there early, met with doctor early, everything went very smoothly, very satisfied with the visit.
Dr Esteban and his staff are excellent in providing care, answering our concerns and contact regarding my care. I would recommend him very highly.
Very straight forward. Answered my questions and easier any tension l felt
Awesome people and great care. Thank you so much!!
Dr Esteban was so real and friendly. He was well apprised of my condition before he entered the exam room and his NP was equally as wonderful. Thank you for this efficient visit and plan going forward.
Dr. Estaben was amazing. He took the time to listen and explain everything to us and spent a considerable time talking and explaining the details of treatment and addressed our concerns after our appointment by phone. We are no longer use to speaking to doctors via phone, we usually get the nurse at our facilitys, so it was very comforting to talk directly to him and have questions of concern answered instead of relaying messages. A special thanks to him for all the time he took with us!!!
My service was outstanding I am switching all my medical appointments to Froedtert&MCW so I can have one location
Have been very pleased with Froedtert and the way they get you to your appointment, the short wait and the friendly smiles.
I was very impressed with the treatment I received.
Doc answered everything that I ask and explained everything very well
The concern shown by Doctor was very verbally evident. In different sentences he conveyed the importance of how I needed to care for myself and some actions I must take. Did not pound into me the loom and doom which I am aware of and only would made me focus on an losing battle but rather hope. There is only some doctors that truly have the gift of bedside manner.
Froedtert. Is awesome!!
