Dr Eskew has the best personality of any doctor I've encountered. He performed a surgery on me after being referred by a friend of mine who also had a surgery done by him. Then, I referred my husband who had yet another successful surgery from him. Amazing doctor!! I will continue to refer friends and family to him for any ENT needs.
Dr Eskew has been seeing my 12 year old daughter since she was born with a Cleft ip and Palate. She has had 9 pairs of tubes, and numerous surgeries that he has been a part of. He is the only physician on her laundry list of Dr's that I can honestly say I trust more than anything in the world. He has done amazing work on her, and continues to have the best, most caring attitude with her every time he see's her. He remembers things about her care w/o even looking in her chart and has ALWAYS provied the most amazing care for her. We were blessed with this wonderful Dr and have always felt this way about him. He does have a wait time in the waiting room but when you are the patient he is taking an hour with you forget how long you waited!
I had heard these great things about Dr. Eskew, but his attitude was too superior for me. He also still looks at vocal cords with a mirror instead of using the modern scope. He completely misdiagnosed my vocal cord issue (treating me for acid reflux with increasing meds for three months) without caring that it wasn't working. I eventually found a specialist in San Antonio that knew I had spasmodic dysphonia. It is rare, but Dr. Eskew didn't seem to want to look any further than his first diagnosis and didn't listen when I said "nothing is improving."
Dr. Eskew is the only ENT in Austin who knows about sinus problems. He is friendly, respectful and prompt. He helped me when countless other Doctors failed. I would never consider another ENT M.D. Austin is fortunate to have him and I appreciate his knowledge more than he will ever realize.
