I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Arizmendi. He's very professional and an excellent doctor. His office staff is a different story. I had to call three times to have my medical information faxed to my surgeon. They have not received all the information yet...

A little bit of a wait but not excessive. Dr was to the point and prescribed what I needed. He did say he treats mostly ‘geriatric’ patients & this was evident by the people in the waiting room.

Para mí fue muy importante que hablara español y entendiera los nombres de los medicamentos en español.

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 towhen 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.

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 startedto 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.

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 visitand 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.
