By far my best doctor visit ever! As a new patient, Dr. Arun made me feel so at ease. She showed compassion, empathy, and gave me lots of encouragement. Dr Arun is a straightforward communicator. She explains things in such away to ensure the patient fully understands so that informed decisions about health care can be made. Her ability to recall the information I had shared during the visit confirmed for me that she was also an active listener. This practice is very good at time management. My appointment was held as scheduled which showed me they valued and respected my time. There was ample time for Dr. Arun to address the health concerns I raised during my visit. She was thorough and took the necessary diagnostic tests to resolve my issues. I felt her passion and her desire to help me.

I usually don’t write reviews but it’s been a couple of times I’ve been there. Dr. Arun is okay from a scale of 1-10, I give her a 7 because of the fact that she does care but sometimes she rushesa lot. She doesn’t take the time to specifically specify the condition unless you keep asking questions and get it out of her. I’ve learnt that that’s what I need to do every time I go there, ask a lot of questions because she won’t just say things as I expect for a doctor to do.

I had a mystery illness that had been dogging me for nearly two years. Dr. Arun actually attempted to find it, rather than calling me crazy, and I think she did. She was thorough and detailed (first doctor I've ever seenlook at my personally compiled medical history) and her staff is friendly.

Initially, I was fine with Dr. Arun. But as I saw her more she began to withhold my lifesaving prescriptions unless I saw her multiple times a year. This is for an albueterol inhaler and a preventative steroid that keeps mebreathing. I understand wanting to see a patient, but withholding my prescription unless I see her a bunch of times seems above and beyond what is necessary. I am moving on to another PCP who takes my health above her ideals. Some people work multiple jobs and can’t take time to see a doctor frivolously multiple tones a year. My previous doctors saw me once a year for my physical and gave me a years worth of my medically necessary medication for my asthma. This is uncalled for.

Doctor could not tell where my infection was and recommended I go to an ENT instead. Wish I had know that and would have gone directly to the ENT, saved myself a trip and a copay. Also she sent prescription directlyto CVS without telling me what it was and how it works. Really frustrating that doctors don't explain anything to patients.

I went there because of the good reviews. As the saying goes, first impression is everything. I was not impressed. She walked into the room, not looking at me or greeting me. Went straight to the notes the nurse had lefton the counter. It was awkward silent for 2-3 min. Then she walked over to me and introduced herself very quickly (as if she didn't mean it and just checking off the box). I gave her the benefit of the doubt and scheduled my next appointment. However, the more I thought about it and talked to my husband about it, I just didn't feel right about her attitude. May be she was having a bad day. I don't know. But I cancelled my second appointment.

In this day of "fast everything" including "fast medicine," I am always impressed with Dr. Arun's care to address questions and review concerns of her patients. She truly cares about her patients, and when necessary, devotes time to obtainrecords and information to provide the best treatment. Beside being impressed with Dr. Arun's practice of medicine, I am highly impressed with her staff as well. Greeted by staff when contacting the office, I am impressed with the care and professionalism they offer each patient. Lucy K.

You make an appointment and get there on time but always have to wait 30 mins or more to see the Doctor. When you call the office for refills etc they put you on hold for about 15 mins or moreand never come back on the phone to say ..sorry I will be right with you, you just feel abandon and hang up.
