Great team! I'll definitely be back!
Fue visita de primera vez. Es un profesional Muy paciente. Presta mucha atención al paciente y es considerado. Para mí fue muy importante que hablara español y entendiera los nombres de los medicamentos en español. Explica las razones de las decisiones que toma para que uno como paciente entienda los porqués de dichas decisiones.
Very reasonable wait time - not immediate but ok. Front office staff were courteous and helpful. New patient visit - he took plenty of time to discuss history and concerns that we had, very good bedside manner. He scheduled follow-up with us before we left and we had a good initial treatment plan. Clearly, someone had reviewed his records because the office followed up with a text the next day with another recommendation for us that we hadn't talked about at the visit. Only downside for us is location - just a bit too much 1604 for us to get there, no fault of his!
He is an excellent doctor, very precise and attentive, there is no rush while you are telling or asking your doubts.
very good and informative
Nice guy, seems to be knowledgeable, don't know how old he is but he seems young with an older soul, seems trustworthy, straight to the point to help you, listens, would like more treatment worksheets or something we can refer to when we are at home. Drove from the medical center area to see him, so that should tell you he was worth the visit. I like the location too out of the limelight and very clean.
Very good visit. Went for two reasons that I felt were resolved in one visit. Good listener.
Dr. Arizmendi took his time to heat my symptoms and took care of me like he always does. Even gave me preventive actions to take next time so that I can stay healthy. Thank you Dr. Arizmendi!
Dr Alejandro Arizmudi is always professional, and theral. My visits always are conducted in A timely fashion. The staff is always professional and friendly.
The staff was very helpful and friendly as they always are. I was seen early! That is a first for a doctor. One of the things I like best about Dr. Arizmendi is that he takes the time to listen to you. I have already recommended him to two relatives who are now seeing him. I have many health issues and he has my full confidence.
He was very patient, listened to all my concerns and addressed each one. He has a very pleasant nature and does not rush through my visit. He apologized for the delay in seeing me as they were quite busy.
Great experience for me in finding a new primary care provider in my new neighborhood since moving. He answered all my questions and did a thorough checklist of all we would do to get my physical up to date.
The doctor was very professional and kind. He took the time to answer all of my questions and offer great advice!
Dr. Arizmendi is very professional, friendly, caring, kind, with great attitude, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend him. He is the best Primary Physician I ever had. JM
I did some research before visiting my new PCP and now I know why he has such a great rating. They earn the high marks for their level of customer service. From the ladies who great you and get you started to the nurse who checks your vitals, the quality of care and attention to the patient is second to none. In my 51 years, I've seen a lot of doctors, PA's and even some NP's who tend to be on autopilot and get done with a visit all too soon. Dr A and his staff are not in a hurry but because of their efficiency, they get to you on time and in detail. 5 Stars is all I can give but they deserve a couple more. Highly recommend.
Great experience, excellent bedside manners, listens carefully, good recommendations.Best doctor I have had.
Myself and my husband both saw him. We love him! He is very professional and a great listener. He is now both of our primary doctors. The staff were also awesome!
Honest Doctor and he is not afraid to tell you issues that may happen due to symptoms he sees now. Very good doctor and excellent bedside manner
At the beginning of my appointment (12/22/2016) Dr. Arizmendi asked me for the purpose of the visit, immediately responded to that objectives, also asked me about some critical health issues of mine, and he made recommendations for my future treatment and well being. His capable and professional staff administered my requested treatment in an efficient and professional manner, as well as scheduled the dates for my follow-up treatments.
This was my first visit to Dr. Arizmendi. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Nurse was polite, professional and competent. Dr. Arizmendi showed genuine concern for me as a patient to get to bottom of the reason for the visit and treat the symptoms as well as to make sure of follow up. I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a good Doc who truly cares for the patient and doesn't rush you through the appointment.
He was great! I would most definitely recommend him!
Everyone is usually very polite and nice. I was called in to be seen within 5 minutes of arriving which I really appreciated. Medications are called in and faxed to my pharmacy with no problem.
Filled out the new patient paperwork and they called me in less than 5 minutes later. Did not have to wait long for doctor after initial assessment. Dr. Arizmendi was friendly and responsive to concerns.
I had a great first visit with doctor. I felt like he really took the time to sit and talk with me about my concerns. He listened and provided excellent care.
Excellent medical information for my ongoing treatment and delivered in a highly professional and courteous manner. The staff are also outstanding! The wait time was excessive, but it was an unusual day and we were informed on better days of the week to visit.
Very nice staff, Dr. Arizmendi was easy to talk to. I had an annual physical, and set up an appointment for some preventative tests which he was very helpful with. My wait time was a little long, but the staff was very friendly and professional.
I have been looking for an internal medicine specialist for my medical needs. After interviewing Dr. Arizmendi, it was my belief that I had found a doctor I could trust and rely on. After several appointments, my initial assessment has proven correct. I would recommend him for your medical needs.
Front desk staff did not have my appointment scheduled. I was given an appointment for today a week and half ago when went by to fill out required paperwork for first time patient. Why else would I come to appointment today? They were not very patient friendly. Dr Arizmendi service was good. He listened to my concerns. However, staff needs further training in patient services.
Dr. A is kind and concerned about the health of his patients.
Highly recommend this doctor! I went in with my left ear clogged up and he made sure to take note of all my symptoms and eventually looked in my ears to find out I have an infection. The staff at the front were rude when trying to figure out my insurance. Other than that, doctor was nice and attended to my problems!
Dr. Arizmendi is my primary care physician. He has a great bedside manner and really listens to you.
Dr. Arizmendi was a very pleasant person to deal with. His manner and his attention to my needs was first rate. I felt comfortable to express any concerns and Dr. Arizmendi listened attentively and in a very professional manner. This was my first visit and I appreciated the friendliness of his staff as well.
He is very intellectual doctor with great experience and good manner. I trust him .
Pleasant and professional.
Excellent listener. Pays attention to what you are telling him. The way he conducts the exam is outstanding. Wish I had known him earlier so I would have avoided a lot of headache. He will be my doctor for life!
Friendly, and he listens to your problems. He shows an actual concern for your health, looks at you while he speaks to you unlike other doctors that do not even raise their head to address you. He makes sure that all your concerns are addressed before you leave. Plus, he's bilingual. :)
Dr. Arizmendi is great at listening and asking questions to help him with his diagnosis. I appreciate his thoroughness.
Dr. Arizmendi has wonderful bedside manner. He is patient, he listens and is genially concerned with addressing issues. He is very gentle and has a kind demeanor which him very comfortable to be around and share details of what may be going on. I highly recommend this doctor for more than a one time visit but rather to be in charge of long term wellness.
Best doctor I have ever had! He listens, is informative, respectful of your decisions a total gentleman! Very intelligent and knowledgeable .
Doctor is very caring and listens to you.
Dr. Arizmendi was very courteous and friendly. But even more important, very thorough, heard my concerns and answered all of my questions!
This past appointment was only for a couple routine checkups, but it was still a very thorough and knowledgeable experience. The Dr. and PA were both very kind and accommodating to my needs. I never once felt uncomfortable, and I find that to be very important when seeing a health practitioner of any sort.
Very caring, listens to your concerns.
He was kind and took a genuine interest in my health.
Seemed more interested in my symptoms than others have been.
Dr. Arizmendi and staff are wonderful! They always work hard to get me in and they take excellent care of my family and me. I'd recommend this office to anyone looking for a doctor.
We enjoy seeing our Doctor and his staff. We appreciate their ability and willingness to partner with us in seeking to improve our health and well being.
Dr. Is one of the best doctors in Texas. Overall I'm satisfied.
Dr. Arizmendi is always pleasant and easy to talk to. Every time I have seen him, his diagnosis has been accurate. It was nice to find a doctor of his quality after my husband and I moved here from another city. He had big shoes to fill as we had been with and loved our previous doctor for over twenty years. We dreaded having to find another physician, but Dr. Arizmendi made the transition painless for us.
Very pleased with things from the cheerful reception to the end of the appointment. If they furnished coffee and doughnuts, the visits would be perfect.
I am a new patient and have been very satisfied with Dr Arizmendi. He does not rush, takes his time to listen and seems very interested in what is best for the patient. He explains his recommendations very well and in a manner that is easily understood. I am very happy with his office. His assistants are polite and helpful.
I was received by their new PA today. she was wonderful. I also have great respect for Dr Arizmendi for his dedication and professionalism in treating patients. this is my second year that I have decided to stay with Dr. Arizmendi. I would also like to mention that all the staff in the reception area are helpful and polite. I thank them all.
Very attentive,good listener, professional, very pleased!
My visit with Dr. Arizmendi was good. Very professional, respectful, and friendly. Made me feel at ease.
Very friendly staff. Dr. also very professional and listened to my concerns and request.
It was great. I love how he spent time listening and answering any questions and concerns I had. He was friendly. Great bedside manner. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a doctor. I'm happy to be his patient.
Spoke with the doctor assistant, Katie. She was very kind and professional.
He is a great doctor he listen to all your questions and he gives you lots of time.
Truly appreciate Dr Arizmendi and look forward to working in partnership with him to improve my health and wellness.
I've seen this doctor a few times before. The last couple of times I was not satisfied. I won't return. We have too many discrepancies. No I am not a doctor but I do know doctors do not know it all. I fact check my stuff before I visit the doctor and he just goes against everything. I don't believe in just accepting what a doctor tells me.
Best doctor I've seen in years. Dr Arizmendi and staff listen to you and take the time to do a great job. He is very knowledgeable and up to date on his treatments. I've finally found a great doctor to stay with.
Excellent!! Very professional !!
It was very good
We recently moved to the area and were assigned Dr Arizmendi through our health insurance provider. We could not be happier with Dr Arizmendi and his staff. The staff is efficient, but still personal and friendly. Dr Arizmendi, while he has a busy practice, takes the necessary time to establish a relationship with his new patients. His emphasis on preventive medicine and healthy living is truly appreciated.
He was very professional and nice. He made recommendations that improved my health problems. He took time to listen to me. He follows up with the results of your care. I am very happy to have Dr Arizmendi as my doctor.
Very courteous reception and nursing staff. Did not have to wait a long time to be seen. Office very clean and neat.
Excellent attention from the Dr. as well as his team.
Great doctor. Very responsive and a good listener. This time he treated me for pneumonia from allergies. His protocol got me feeling better in one day. I highly recommend him.
Very nice doctor, friendly, good staff. Wait not too long. Doctor A listened to my complaints and I will see him again.
Saw the doctor for my first appointment, and the physicians assistant for my second visit. Both were excellent.
Dr. is very professional and precise. He listened to everything I had to say and asked questions that were relevant. We talked about medications and possible alternatives. He took his time and allowed me to ask whatever questions I had. This was my get acquainted visit but he already has scheduled tests and a follow up visit. I am very pleased with this young man. I highly recommend him as a primary care physician. His credentials are impressive.
I called to see if I could get an appointment at 9 am. Got scheduled for appointment for 9:45 and was in to see the doctor right away.
It was very nice, I got what I needed. DR. Arizmendi is one of the best doctors in San Antonio Texas.
I went in for high blood pressure and he explained to me the importance of controlling it. I was not able to leave his office till my BP lowered. I felt he took a personal approach and im very satisfied with the visit. Thank you!
What a gentleman! Very professional and thorough. Felt very welcome and showed concern about my health.
The staff at Dr. Arizmendi's office are wonderful. They are very friendly and take care of whatever you need. Dr. Arizmendi stays on schedule and I've never waited longer than 5 minutes after being placed in a room. He's very thorough and remembers more about you than your medical chart. I would highly recommend Dr. Arizmendi.
He explains every diagnosis so you can understand and is patient with his patients. He was recommended to me by my daughter in law. Great choice.
Excellent treatment by staff and doctor.
I found Dr. Arizmendi to be very personable to talk to about anything on health issues. He didn't rush to quickly get to his next patient. He toke all the time I needed to discuss my medical issues, being that it was my first visit because I was with my former doctor for 10-12 years. His staff (the girls) are very nice and friendly. They toke time to talk to me, laugh and discuss various issues about life in general. All in all, I would highly recommend his services to others without a problem.
Everything great just felt a bit rushed but that seems to be the case with healthcare in general now a days.
I am very impressed with Dr. Arizmendi. He saw me the same day I called and listened to my concerns. I am breastfeeding and a lot of doctors write you off and tell you that in order to be treated you need to stop breastfeeding or pump and dump. He looked up what medications were safe to take and advised me on what my options were. I appreciate that so much. He
Alejandro Arizmendi was very professional and took the time to answer my questions about my concerns about diabetes.
I really like Dr. Arizmendi! He is courteous, takes his time and puts your mind at ease. He will not charge you for stuff you don't need and will go the lowest cost way first and work from there. His staff is really nice and fast. I highly recommend you make him your Dr.!
Professional, nice and very bright. He took the time to work through my case and was very pleasant the whole way through. He has a relaxed manner about him that makes anything you may be going through much more tolerable. After all the doctors I have seen, I can say he's a great one.
I had a satisfactory first visit.
Outstanding service as always
Very short and to the point visit. Nurse Payton was very professional and was an enjoyable visit.
aún no lo conozco bien Parece ser un buen médico estoy satisfecho con el trato muy buenas secretarias
Very professional staff,short wait time,excellent bedside manner,glad a chose this provider.
He was awesome and down to earth and gave me his full attention explained to me everything that we were going to look for. He made me feel comfortable which was amazing.
I called that day because I had gotten sick and they were flexible and saw me that day , gave me a couple of shots and I was at work the next day. Staff was very helpful and friendly.
Me gusto mucho su trato y el del personal con el que trabaja .
Dr. Arizmendi is cordial and cared that I was there. He listens and is very helpful. His staff is also caring with the patients and have smiles on their faces. They enjoy working there - this says volumes. He is very knowledgeable about the challenges of middle-age. He was able to switch a medication that will help me with symptoms and he made referrals so I was up-to-date on overdue procedures. I checked all the reviews before choosing him as my primary physician. They were all stellar - I can now understand why. I'm glad I chose him.
Very personable. Listens to what you have to say. This was a follow up appointment (not a major physical) but still very thorough.
Doctor Arizmendi and staff are wonderful...courteous, professional, efficient, and respectful. A great experience all around.
Love Dr. A. All family go to him now. Has always been there for us, even after hours or emergencies. Very friendly and compassionate.
I never feel rushed & he takes time to go over everything. He listens! I highly recommend Dr. Arizmendi
It's an awesome doctor,he take his time to answer all questions...i will go again...hopefully not so soon...
Very professional and his staff was very efficient.
Best Dr I've ever been to. He's the only Dr I've met that cares about his patients and doesn't rush thru a visit. He's also very modest I don't think he realizes how much that means to his patients.
Me sentí cómoda y con confianza.
Very professional. I am a retired Internist, and Dr. Arizmendi has all of the qualities that I look for in an Internal Medicine doctor. First of all, he listens to you, and takes a good history! He then actually examines you. He addresses the pertinent problems well. I look forward to my visits with him. He is always very pleasant, and so is is staff. I recommend this Internist very heartily!!
Dr. Arizmendi listened to me, asked pertinent questions and answered all my questions. I think I have a new doctor! Pat

I am a retired Internist, who just moved to San Antonio. I just retired in February. Dr. Arizmendi listens to the patient very well, which is what a good Internist should do. His knowledge of medicine is good. I would certainly recommend him to other patients.
great bedside manner. Always gets the patients input. staff is friendly and ghelpful
He is an excellent listener and always tries to answer any questions during the appointment.
He's a great Dr. He listened genuinely to my problems and worked with me to help solve them.
I made a same-day appointment which is the reason why I waited so long; they had to fit me in. As usual, he was very professional and made me very comfortable. I have prescriptions, blood tests, etc., but I feel he will get to the bottom of what my problem is .
Dr. Arizmendi is an awesome doctor. He is very knowledgeable, professional and his staff is very kind and respectful. I would highly recommend Dr. Arizmendi.
Nice, helpful and no waiting.
Right on time. Answered all my questions. I did not feel like he was rushing. I am so glad I changed to his practice.

I was not a current patient of his. He was referred by another doctor because my regular doctor could not see me right away. So, if I had to change regular doctors, I would select this doctor. And, on top of that, great friendly staff. NIce clean office.

Dr. Arizmendi is very thorough. Excellent people skills. Always takes time to explain what he finds and why he is prescribing the meds he does. Staff is well trained and courteous. Appointments are easy to schedule. Wait time is minimal, especially compared to other doctors. I especially like his location because I can park right outside his entrance. One of the best experiences I've had with a doctor's office.
Dr. Arizmendi is just the best! He takes his time, answers all your questions and makes you feel so comfortable. I am beyond thrilled that I found Dr. Arizmendi; his staff is just as wonderful!
Accuracy of treatment or diagnosis, very patient to discuss with customer condition
Everyone at this office was very nice and personable. I was a new patient, filled out the initial paperwork 15 min before my appt and was seen nearly immediately after. Dr. Arizmendi was very professional and has a nice light hearted personality. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.
Made me feel a lot better after I talked to him; took the time to listen to my problem; very professional and knowledgeable.

awesome and very home like atmosphere, Friendly and very helpful staff
The office staff here is absolutely horrible. They don't communicate well. They have difficulty understanding. They are brash and have no tact when speaking to patients. There is a language barrier with some of the staff members. They don't return phone calls and constantly bounce you around.
Very happy with it. Office staff very friendly and professional. Dr. Arizmendi very kind and gave me as much time as I needed.
Very knowledgeable and good experience with him and staff will be going back if need be
His staff was friendly, his bedside manner was great. He went over labs, took his time explaining and listened to issues, addressed each one of them. Definitely recommend!!
