    Dr. Eskelsen isn't my child's pediatrician; however, he is understanding, friendly, and caring. He has been helpful to my family on this visit and also for a refill request on [...] that wasn't urgent but I had requested since it was the last day of the year to fully use my 2018 insurance benefits.

    he was so great with my daughter and listened to what I had to say.

    I had never met with this doctor before but he was kind, informative and I had a very positive experience. Each doctor in that clinic that I've met with so far has been very pleasant and would refer to anyone. Very pleased with the care provided.

    We had 3 children who kept getting sick one after another so we finally took them to see the pediatrician. he was so helpful and finally my kids got better!

    The physician was very knowledgeable and that's what I like the most.

    I explain the issue to the nurse, then need to re explain to the dr. Don't they have access to the records and notes? I feel the dr. should be more prepared about the issue before entering the exam room.

    I would like this Doctor to be [...]'s Primary Doctor. [...] responded well to him and I really appreciated his bedside manner. He was excellent with her. You can definitely tell he is great with children.

    This doctor is not our normal pediatrician, but my kids have seen him twice now & I have very pleased with him.

    He never made me feel like he was rushed to go to another patient.

    Dr. Eskelsen was very caring, informative & attentive. After our visit with him we changed our primary care to him.

    [...] We were pleased with the provider and his caring manner.

    He was so great that we ended up switching our sons primary care doctor to him from the one he has had his whole life.

    I thought Dr. Eskelsen was amazing. He took plenty of time with me and my daughter to fully explain everything. He did a full thorough exam with her, and was kind, felt like he was treating his own kid. Best care that I have gotten for my daughter from a pediatrician in a long time. So, thank you Dr. Eskelsen.

    My son's been having health problems, and there was one time we made a same day appointment, made the appointment for 3 hours from that time. And in that time, Dr. Eskelsen saw my son's name, pulled up his charts, and viewed all of the previous tests he had, so by the time we got there, he knew exactly what he needed to tell us to get things done. It was awesome, and I will always go back to him.

    Dr. Eskelsen took the time to try to get to know my son and find out what his hobbies and likes and dislikes were to kind of build a trusting relationship with him so that he could feel more comfortable with the examination and know that he can talk to his doctor about things that might come up in the future that would be helpful to his health and to maybe the health of his friends so he helped educate him on some things and also helped him feel comfortable at the same time.
