Dr. Estrada was exceptional. Smart, compassionate and thorough. He took time with me and was very patient with me as the reason I was seeing him was a cause of concern. He has since followed up with a personal phone call with test results. Amazing! His nurse was also very kind and compassionate!

Dr Estrada covered everything in detail. he even took time to show me my CT scan and explained things on the scan beyond what I was there for. Very professional and nice. I'm glad he is one of my doctors.

Dr Estrada was very nice and welcoming and was willing to listen to my issues and provide ways I could hopefully prevent themfrom returning in the future.

When I told him the story of my illness, he repeated everything back to me to make sure I understood what he was thinking before giving his diagnosis and a recommendation for a procedure. I felt heard and understood; I've had many doctors half listen and then jump to a conclusion, or dismiss some of my symptoms. Dr. Estrada was an attentive and detailed listener. This gave me a high confidence in his recommendation. I really appreciate his straightforward style of communication.

Dr. Estrada is great. I enjoy his manner; he himself may not be super funny or joke-y, but he's receptive to it. :) He explains things in lay terms without sugar coating, but in a direct, not off-putting way that resonates with me. I always feel confident about knowing my exact health status and plan of action if needed after my visit with him.
