She is amazing She made me fill so comfortable I would recommend her to anyone
Dr Sarkis is nice and knowledgeable. She has a great attitude and provides great advices. The only area that I'd like to see improvements is to ask the office managers to schedule the time more wisely to reduce the waiting time.
The doctor herself is very mannered and able to connect to you as a friend more than anything. She explains everything in detail and makes you feel very comfortable. I came in extremely irritated with what was going on within my body and here I am a few days later cleared of it. Unfortunately I did have to wait over an hour before seeing her.
Going in I was initially nervous from bad experiences with " Cold" doctors with terrible bedside manner . But she really made me feel comfortable and that she genuinely cared . Which makes the anxiety from taking a trip to the doctors extremely less. Very sweet smart lady
She has a fantastic Doctor who takes the time to understand your concerns;however, they have a tendency to overbook which creates a wait. I'm very happy overall :)
Very pleased. Doubly so as she spoke Spanish so my wife could participate in the discussion.
Was looking for a primary doctor and Arbella was exceptionall!! My husband said she was very helpful and personable. Will definitely keep her as our dr.
She is Amazing :)
Very nice, friendly, and personable. Makes patients feel comfortable.
Overall very personable. She is very booked but somehow still remembers me eve though I haven't seen her in over a year
She's very professional, knowledgeable and helpful with any questions you may have.
Very pleased. Very nice lady. Will definitely be going back, but hopefully not to soon =P Also was able to pay my copay right there. Very convenient. Also very pleasant and friendly staff.
Easy, fast, thorough
Dr. Sarkis was very attentive and compassionate. She listens well and gives good feedback that lets you know she has heard what you have said. I was very happy with my overall experience with her.
She was really really great, however the appointment I was there for (a dermatology consult) was not what I got unfortunately. The website showed that I could make an appointment with her specifically for that reason, and the front staff asked me a couple of times my reason for visit and was surprised to hear about dermatology. If I knew it wasn't commin to go there for a den consult I would have just asked my primary care physician for a referral to an actual dermatologist. She definitely was so sweet and kind, however I didn't get what I signed up for unfortunately.
She was very kind and thoughtful.
Dr. Arbella is very attentive. She answers every questions or concerns. I felt comfortable around her. She has excellent bedside manners.
She seems like a wonderful person and has great bedside manners. However, there was no follow-up with her and the office scheduled a follow-up appointment without my knowledge. I need a primary care physician that can help me manage my physical health and just did not get that understanding from her.
Dr Arabella is very competent, attentive, kind, and sweet. She listen all our issues, explain and clarify everything, our symptoms, possible causes, test results and advices. I just came from Brazil and was concerned about visit a Doctor from another country, but she made me feel comfortable and confident. She is also very patient with my difficulty speaking English.
Arbella is genuine and direct. She is wise and fast. It's nice to have a doctor go into diagnosis with an open mind. Intelligent and through. Highly recommend her.
Sweetest doctor I've ever seen. Very attentive, thorough, and great sense of humor.
I have never had such a warm welcome and thorough check-in from a doctor! She asked all the right questions and gave some sound advice. Her positive persona was so refreshing! I am more than happy to have found my new doctor ;)
Excellent doctor and very good staffs.Very knowledgeable doctor.i highly recommend her.
She was amazing! She was very welcoming!
She is wonderful!
Everyone was extremely nice. Unfortunately there were a few too many interruptions. Rather than focus on just me, she was interrupted several times by her nurse. I had to ask the nurse twice for the lab slip for blood work. Her response was "Are you sure you are not getting it confused with the other patient we were talking about?" I also had to call the office the next day to remind someone to phone in my prescriptions.
She's a wonderful sweet caring doctor. Great new offices and change of staff is working great as well. Still a bit of a wait, but well worth it. Talking with other patients while waiting (20min), it's obvious she's there when you need her no matter the hour. That's something I never had with other doctors and why I'm keeping her as long as I can (but hope I don't need her).
I like Dr Sarkis but the wait times in her surgery are unacceptable. I have arrived for a 2:30pm appointment and left at 5pm before. No doctor is worth that wait, unfortunately, and her front desk staff leave a lot of be desired on the manners front. It's a shame, as I love Dr Sarkis herself.
All my questions were answered. Takes care of patients' insurance issues.
She was wonderful!
I've lived in several states and, therefore, have had numerous primary care physicians. Dr. Sarkis is by far my favorite. She actually spends times with her patients to ensure you understand what is taking place, what a medication will do, why medication A instead of medication B, and she also offers recommendations that enhance and supplement medications.
Nice, thorough. But I really don't have an hour to wait to be seen - especially when I made an appointment. Otherwise, good experience.
Long wait but one of the best doctors I have ever been to. She helped me out when no one else would at a reasonable price. *Warning, before I begin this review is not intended to tip off pill shoppers?? as I think they are called to call her office and waste this excellent doctor's time*. Other primary care doctors accused me of trying to do this because I have had seizures w/ proof since my early twenties and prior to that I was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age. Soooo I have a very interesting prescription chart that makes most doctors refuse to even consider prescribing me medication even though I need it. Once they invent an ADHD drug that works for me (Straterra does) but has some nasty side effeects. I will gladly take it. I went to 2 doctors before she was willing to help me out before I moved to Oregon and she prescribed the medications that my former neurologist from Kaiser Permanente recommended, as well as, a stopgap measure for my ADHD. I know have a neurologist and primary care doctor that agree with her evaluation in Oregon. She gave me just enough medication (not too much, not too little) to make it to Oregon and start a new life. I recommend her because she really listened and understood that I was in a tough spot and and SHE ACTUALLY CARED!!!
Awesome. Thorough, professional, kind, thoughtful.
Awesome doctor! However, because she takes so much time with each patient get ready for a wait. She'll explain everything in detail and things you may not have thought of. Not your typical write a prescription and your out doctor. Really cares.
She's always such a sweet considerate doctor who wants her patients to be healthy
It was a wonderful experience over all. She was extremely nice & sweeT :) <33 very professional. I had a very good time there :)
I love Dr. Sarkis. She is always so knowledgeable and pleasant to talk to. And I love her fashion sense!
Great doctor so far I loved her she makes you feel very comfortable!!
The wait was to be expected as I was seen the same day as i requested an appointment. Everyone in the office is very kind and accommodating.
She is the most sincere and caring doctor I have had.She is a blessing to have in your life!
The wait was way too long. The office is too small, and the organization of the office is terrible. So to summarize Dr. Sarkis is a wonderful caring doctor, but that does not outweigh the lack of order or extreme wait times.
She is fantastic!!
I really glad I choose to go see Arbella and I would recommend her. She is very nice!
Horrible doctor. Just asked what my symptoms were and prescribed.. What if I was wrong? Luckily I wasn't... I waited about an hour and 30 minutes. It was a TERRIBLY long wait.. Then she came in for 5 minutes.. She asked what was wrong and prescribed- Done. I would never go back!
Incredible bedside manner. She is energetic and has a very sweet and maternal vibe about her. Has answered a number of my questions and curiosities about medicine and my health and has taken the time to see me when I came in needing some quick help without giving notice.
Fantastic doctor, wonderful bedside manner, very caring and made sure I was educated by all the measures she was taking when it came to my health.
She is a doctor who actually LISTENS to her patients, but the office seems to need a process make over since I have never gotten in to my appointment even within 1/2 hour of the time specified.
great doc, worth the wait but bring a book!
Dr Sarkis is probably the best doctor I've been to in my entire life. She takes her time to understand your history first and even gets her nurses to take note of all the details. She takes her job seriously - and you can tell by the way she doesn't overlook anything - something that I feel some doctor's do. She's direct and concise when she talks, and really likes to put her patients in a state of mind that they need to care for their bodies. I was convinced after my first visit that I really need to start taking care of myself - which in a lot of ways - I tend to lose sight of in my busy schedule and life. She is also a sweet person - loves to relate to you from a personal level. She calls all her patients her kids because she really cares. She'll also admit when she doesn't know the right answer or the right solution, but will always find a way to point you in the right direction to get the help you need. I rarely write reviews for things - but I think she definitely deserves the recognition. Planning on having her as a doctor for life.
I loved the doc but the wait was long. i asked others in the waiting room if this was a typical wait and they said yes. However, they like her so much they stay with her. I think I will, too.
I'll definitely see her again.
Very impressed with experience--I was late due to traffic and the staff and Dr Sarkis took me in without problems. Fastest first-time visit I've ever had, and the staff even expedited my check-up when they noted my sense of urgency. Of course they asked a patient if I could go first (very nice of the patient as well...). Dr Sarkis was incredibly courteous, attentive, thorough, and had an almost motherly sixth sense to her approach. Staff were all very nice and attentive people. Overall the visit did not feel like a trip to a Doctor's office, but much more comfortable and personal.
I feel so heard and cared for and so well taken care of by Dr. Sarkis. It's usually a long wait to see her...but I clear my schedule because it's worth it. She gives her patients her whole heart and her full attention. She isn't watching the clock. I love that!
The wait to see her is long because she really takes her time to get to know each patient and make sure that she hears everything you tell her. I can definitely appreciate that! Just plan to be there for awhile, but it is completely worth it! She is thorough and you really leave there feeling like she cares about you! You are not just a number! It's really nice! Dr. Sarkis is clearly a knowledgeable doctor and I feel so comfortable putting my health questions in her hands! I would absolutely recommend her! ;0D
Dr. Sarkis is a great and caring doctor. Great bed side manner. She enjoys getting to know her patients to help develop the patient-doctor relationship. It's hard to find doctors that will take the time to talk with you thoroughly about your options and answer any lingering questions you may have. I recommend this doctor to anyone that is frightful of seeing doctors.
I would rather wait a few extra minutes and have a doctor who listens. She was much higher than my expectations.
Excellent Doctor, she was very caring and concerned about both my wife and me.
Dr. Sarkis was extremely personable. She apologized for the long wait (due to unforeseen problems that day) and carefully considered everything I told her. She seems knowledgable and has good personal relationship with her patients.
I would highly recommend Dr. Sarkis. She was very professional, courteous and very knowledgeable. She explained my health issues and recommended treatment that made sense. I'm happy I found her.
The doctor is very presonable.
I wasn't sure what to think here at first- I had to wait at least 30 minutes after my appointment time before I was helped by a drs aid (after all my paperwork was already processed, though) and another 30 or so after that for the actual doctor. Dr. Sarkis, however, was extremely personable and made me feel at ease with her right away. I came in for a dermatology consultation and she confirmed it as psoriasis- what I suspected it to be. She continued to prescribe me a few different types of steroid creams and recommended me to a lab to get some blood work done to check for a Vitamin D deficiency. She seemed very knowledgeable and determined to find the cause rather than just treat the symptoms. I was also in a car accident recently and she recommended me to a physical therapist to help with the pain. All in all I felt like she was very sympathetic and gave a thorough diagnosis- I would certainly come back here again.
It only took awhile because it was my first time there and I hadn't shown up earlier to do some paper work. She was very sweet! I felt comfortable talking to her and letting her do the normal exams. She is such a sweet women!
Loved Dr Sarkis but the office was a bit busy which means business is good and clients keep coming back!
She was incredibly sweet, caring, and professional. Some of her staff members could learn a thing or two from her, but she was wonderful.
She answered all my questions, gave me additional advice and made me feel so comfortable. I was amazed at the level of service. A truly pleasant experience!
I loved the doctor. She was very helpful and knowlegable about what I was going through and she even had some great suggestions for me. I will go back and see her again. She is a very nice doctor.
I loved her! She acted like she had known me for years, and stayed with me until all my questions were answered. Great Lady
It was my first visit with her ~ and I found her online through other patient's reviews. She is the most caring, thorough doctor I've ever seen. I am so thankful I found her!!! She listened well, she asked me lots of questions and I felt like I had really been "cared for" by a Dr. when my visit was over. She threw in so many helpful pieces of information that I wasn't even expecting. Can't even describe how thankful I am that I now have a competent, caring physician.
It was great. She's very knowledgeable and caring as well. She made me feel very comfortable. I'd like her to be my primary care physician!!!
over all i liked the doctor, she actually cared about my problem and wants to help. thanks
Dr. Sarkis was great, kind, unusually great listener and knowledgeable, nailed my problem. Good staff. They use state of art equipment and electronic medical records (big plus).
